A Study to Assess the Anti-fatigability Effect of CK-2127107 in Elderly Male and Female Subjects With Limitations in Mobility


  • Study type

  • Study phase

  • Study IDs

  • Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:

    • Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
    • Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
    • Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.
  • During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market.

About this study

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of CK-2127107 versus placebo on skeletal muscle fatigue assessed as change from baseline versus 14 days of treatment in sum of peak torque during isokinetic knee extensions. This study will also assess the effects of CK-2127107 on physical performance via a short physical performance battery (SPPB), stair-climb test and 6 minute walk test.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has a body mass index of 18.5 to 35.0 kg/m2, inclusive.
  • Subject has a score of greater than 4 and less than or equal to 9 on a Short physical performance battery (SPPB).
  • Subject is able to complete the 6-minute walk test at screening without an assistive device or the help of another person.
  • Subject is able to successfully complete the prestudy isokinetic knee extension (120 contractions). These assessments may be repeated once at the investigator's discretion (within the screening window).
  • Subject is able to communicate well with the investigator and to understand and comply with the requirements of the study.
  • Subject has a mini-mental state examination (MMSE) score of greater than 21 at screening.
  • Subject is currently not following a regular structured exercise weekly activity.
  • A sexually active male subject with female partner(s) of childbearing potential is eligible if:
    • Male subject agrees to use a male condom starting at screening and continue throughout study treatment and for 28 days after the final study drug administration.
    • If the male subject has not had a vasectomy or is not sterile as defined below, the male subject's female partner(s) is utilizing 1 form of highly effective birth control starting at screening and continuing throughout study treatment and for 90 days after the male subject receives final study drug administration.
  • Male subject must not donate sperm starting at screening and throughout the study period, and for 28 days after the final study drug administration.
  • Male subject with a pregnant or breastfeeding partner(s) must agree to remain abstinent or use a condom for the duration of the pregnancy or time partner is breastfeeding throughout the study period and for 28 days after the final study drug administration.
  • Subject agrees not to participate in another interventional study while participating in the present study, defined as from signing the informed consent form for the current study until completion of the Follow-up visit for this study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has had previous exposure to CK-2127107.
  • Subject has any of the liver function tests (aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase, γ-glutamyl transferase and total bilirubin) above 1.5 times the upper limit of normal at day -1. In such a case, the assessment may be repeated once.
  • Subject has an estimated glomerular filtration rate less than 30 mL/min per 1.73 m2 by the Cockcroft-Gault equation at screening.
  • Subject has any clinically significant history of allergic conditions (including drug allergies, asthma, eczema, or anaphylactic reactions, but excluding untreated, asymptomatic, seasonal allergies) prior to study drug administration.
  • Subject has/had a febrile illness or a symptomatic viral, bacterial (including upper respiratory infections), or fungal (noncutaneous) infection within 1 week prior to day -1.
  • Subject has any condition which makes the subject unsuitable for study participation.
  • Subject has a serious cardiovascular disease, including a current New York Heart Association class II, class III or IV congestive heart failure or clinically significant valvular disease, history of cardiac arrest, uncontrolled angina or arrhythmia, chronic atrial fibrillation regardless of ventricular rate, persistent atrioventricular conduction block > first degree, or acute myocardial ischemic condition suspected on the Electrocardiogram (ECG) at screening (e.g., ST-segment elevation, down-sloping ST-segment depressions > 2 mm).
  • Subject has myocardial infarction or other acute coronary syndrome, major heart surgery (i.e.,valve replacement or bypass surgery), stroke, deep vein thrombosis, or pulmonary embolus in the past 6 months prior to screening.
  • Subject has any of the following, with or without blood pressure medication: a pulse < 40 or > 100 bpm; mean systolic blood pressure >160 mmHg; mean diastolic blood pressure > 100 mmHg (based on the measurements taken in triplicate after subject has been resting in supine position for 5 minutes; pulse will be measured automatically) at day 1. These assessments may be repeated once at the investigator's discretion (within the screening window).
  • Subject has used the following drugs:
    • Strong cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 inhibitor (e.g., itraconazole, clarithromycin; within 14 days prior to day 1
