Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Oral CR845 (Difelikefalin) in Patients With Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC) and Moderate-to-Severe Pruritus


Brief description of study

This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of twice-daily (BID) oral CR845 1.0 mg in patients with PBC with moderate-to-severe pruritus. The study includes a 16-week Treatment Period.

Detailed Study Description

This study will consist of a Screening Visit, a 7-day Run-in Period, a 16-week Treatment Period, and a Follow-up Visit (approximately 7-10 days after the last dose of study drug). Informed consent will be obtained prior to performing any study-specific procedures.

The Screening Visit will occur within 7 to 28 days prior to randomization to assess eligibility.

Day 1 of the Treatment Period will be defined as the day of the administration of the first dose of study drug. If patients continue to meet all inclusion and no exclusion criteria at the end of the 7-day Run-in Period, they will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive either placebo or CR845 tablets at a dose of 1.0 mg orally BID for 16 weeks.
