    Study Title:

    A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Multicenter Study of Itolizumab in Combination with Corticosteroids for the Initial Treatment of Acute Graft Versus Host Disease


    This is a multi-center study to compare the efficacy and safety of itolizumab versus placebo as first-line therapy for subjects with Grade III-IV aGVHD or Grade II with LGI involvement, in combination with corticosteroids


    Primary: To assess the efficacy of itolizumab versus placebo as initial therapy for aGVHD in combination with corticosteroids in achieving early disease response. Secondary: To evaluate the durability of response to itolizumab versus placebo as initial therapy for aGVHD in combination with corticosteroids. To evaluate systemic corticosteroid use in subjects treated with itolizumab versus placebo. To assess the impact of itolizumab versus placebo on other clinically relevant efficacy measures, including survival outcomes and cGVHD incidence. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of itolizumab versus placebo as initial therapy for aGVHD in combination with corticosteroids.
