ABOUT THIS STUDY
1. Patient is > 40 years-old.
2. Patient participated in FoldRx Study Fx-001 (TRACS) OR Patient has documented TTR amyloid cardiomyopathy and NYHA Classification of I or II.
TTR amyloid cardiomyopathy is defined as:
1. Variant TTR amyloid cardiomyopathy as defined as: V122I genotype and presence of amyloid in cardiac biopsy tissue (as determined by congo red stain, alcin blue stain, or immunohistochemical TTR analysis), or
2. Variant TTR amyloid cardiomyopathy as defined as: V122I genotype, evidence of cardiac involvement by echocardiography with left ventricle wall thickness > 12 mm and presence of amyloid in non-cardiac biopsy tissue (as determined by congo red stain, alcin blue stain, or immunohistochemical TTR analysis), or
3. Wild-type TTR amyloid cardiomyopathy as defined as: normal TTR genotype and presence of TTR amyloid deposits in cardiac biopsy tissue (as determined by congo red stain and immunohistochemical TTR analysis), or
4. Wild-type TTR amyloid cardiomyopathy as defined as: normal TTR genotype, evidence of cardiac involvement by echocardiography with left ventricle wall thickness > 12 mm and presence of TTR amyloid deposits in non-cardiac biopsy tissue (as determined by congo red stain and immunohistochemical TTR analysis).
3. Patient's symptoms of congestive heart failure (CHF) have been optimally managed prior to baseline, as assessed by the Principal Investigator. Optimal CHF management includes stable drug regimen for ≥ 4 weeks prior to enrollment and stable dose of beta blocker for ≥ 3 months prior to enrollment.
4. If female, patient is post-menopausal. If male with a female partner of childbearing potential, willing to use an acceptable method of birth control for the duration of the study and for at least 3 months after the last dose of study medication.
5. Patient is, in the opinion of the Investigator, willing and able to comply with the study medication regimen and all other study requirements
1. Chronic use of non-protocol approved non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs),
defined as greater than 3-4 times/month. The following NSAID are allowed:
acetylsalicylic acid, etodolac, ibuprofen, indomethicin, ketoprofen, nabumetone,
naproxen, nimesulide, piroxicam, and sulindac.
2. Patient has a TTR mutation other than V122I.
3. Patient has primary or secondary amyloidosis.
4. Patient has received prior liver or heart transplantation.
5. Patient with positive results for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), anti-hepatitis
C virus (anti-HCV), and/or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
6. Patient has renal failure requiring dialysis.
7. Patient has moderate or severe hepatic impairment (assessed by Child-Pugh).
8. Patient has liver function test abnormalities: alanine transaminases (ALT) and/or
aspartate transaminases (AST) > 2 times upper limit of normal (ULN) that, in the
medical judgment of the Investigator, are due to reduced liver function or active
9. Patient has prior non-amyloid cardiac disease, such as myocardial infarction due to
obstructive coronary artery disease, active non-amyloid cardiomyopathy (i.e.,
symptomatic left ventricular dysfunction from any cause other than amyloid), or
symptomatic valvular heart disease that significantly contribute to the patient's
underlying cardiac signs or symptoms.
10. Patient has a co-morbidity anticipated to limit survival to less than 12 months.
11. Patient received an investigational drug/device in another clinical investigational
study within 60 days before Baseline (Day 0).
12. Patient had active alcohol or substance abuse within 60 days before Baseline (Day 0).
13. Patient has a history of documented noncompliance.
