Clinical Trial Protocol Description:

This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind phase 2 trial evaluating approximately 76 subjects with symptomatic AERD on the safety and efficacy of 8 weeks of oral ifetroban treatment. Eligible AERD subjects will be randomized to receive 8 weeks of either oral ifetroban daily or matching placebo followed by a 2-week post-treatment period.

The purpose of this phase 2 study is to assess the safety and efficacy of oral ifetroban for the treatment of aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD). AERD is a disease that involves asthma, recurring nasal polyps, and respiratory reactions to aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Clinical Trial Eligibility Criteria:

In order to participate you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a history of physician-diagnosed asthma.
  • Have a history of nasal polyposis.
  • Have a history of at least two reactions to oral aspirin or other nonselective cyclooxygenase inhibitor with features of lower airway involvement (cough, chest tightness, wheezing, dyspnea), or one reaction that was life-threatening and required hospitalization, or a diagnosis of AERD by a physician-conducted challenge to aspirin in the last five years before starting treatment.
  • Have stable asthma (post-bronchodilator FEV1 of ≥ 60%, no glucocorticoid burst for at least two weeks prior to starting treatment, no hospitalizations or emergency room visits for asthma at least three months prior to starting treatment and not on a dose >1000 µg fluticasone or equivalent daily).

You will be excluded from the study if any of the following criteria apply to you:

  • Are current smoking, defined as daily tobacco smoking in the last six months and at least one instance of tobacco smoking in the last three months.
  • Are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Use of oral or systemic steroids (e.g. prednisone or equivalent) > 20 mg daily in the last four weeks before starting treatment.
  • Daily use of long-acting antihistamines in the last two weeks before starting treatment.
