A Phase 2, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of MN-001 in Patients Diagnosed With Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, and Hypertriglyceridemia

Status: Recruiting
Location: See location...
Intervention Type: Drug
Study Type: Interventional
Study Phase: Phase 2

The design of the Phase 2 clinical trial includes the following elements: Multi-center, two-arm, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate MN-001 (tipelukast) vs. placebo in approximately 40 patients in the U.S. Patients will be randomized 1:1 to receive either 500 mg/day of MN-001 (tipelukast) or placebo for 24 weeks. The co-primary endpoints are (1) change from baseline in liver fat content measured by MRI Proton Density Fat Fraction (MRI-PDFF) at Week 24, and (2) change from baseline in fasting serum triglycerides at Week 24. MRI-PDFF is a non-invasive, quantitative, and accurate measure of liver fat content commonly used in early phase trials to measure treatment response. Secondary endpoints include safety and tolerability and changes in lipid profile (HDL-C, LDL-C, and total cholesterol).
