ECOSPOR IV: An Open-Label Extension of Study SERES 0012 Evaluating SER-109 in Subjects With Recurrent Clostridium Difficile Infection
Subjects who had a CDI recurrence in Study SERES-012 within 8 weeks of receipt of study drug will receive an oral dose of SER-109 in 4 capsules once daily for 3 consecutive days. The purpose of this study is to assess safety and efficacy of SER-109 in reducing recurrence of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in adults who had a CDI recurrence within 8 weeks after receipt of SER-109 or Placebo in Study SERES-012.
Approximately 100 eligible subjects with recurrent CDI disease from Study SERES-012 are expected to enroll. Screening for this study will begin at the Week 8 Visit of Study SERES-012.
18 Years and up
Accepting Healthy Volunteers?
1. Previously enrolled in Study SERES-012, had CDI recurrence within 8 weeks after receipt of study drug, and have completed their SERES-012 Week 8 visit.
2. Signed informed consent prior to initiation of any study-specific procedure or treatment. The subject must be able to provide written informed consent and understand the potential risks and benefits from study enrollment and treatment.
3. The CDI recurrence in Study SERES-012 must have met the protocol definition of ≥ 3 unformed stools per day over 2 consecutive days, a positive C. difficile stool test, and assessment by the investigator that the clinical condition of the subject warranted treatment.
1. Female subjects who are pregnant, breastfeeding, lactating, or planning to become pregnant during the study.
2. Known or suspected toxic megacolon and/or known small bowel ileus.
3. Admitted to or expected to be admitted to an intensive care unit for medical reasons (not just boarding). Note: nursing homes, rehabilitation, assisted living centers and acute care hospitals are acceptable.
4. Absolute neutrophil count of <500 cells/ml3
5. Major gastrointestinal surgery (e.g. significant bowel resection or diversion) within 3 months before enrollment (this does not include appendectomy or cholecystectomy), or any history of total colectomy or bariatric surgery (bariatric surgery which does not disrupt the gastrointestinal lumen, i.e., restrictive procedures such as banding, are permitted).
6. History of active inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, microscopic colitis) with diarrhea believed to be caused by active inflammatory bowel disease in the past 3 months.
7. Concurrent intensive induction chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or biologic treatment for active malignancy (subjects on maintenance chemotherapy may only be enrolled after consultation with the study medical monitor).
8. Any history of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT)
