Clinical Trial: ARTEMIS-IGAN

Omeros Corporation is sponsoring the ARTEMIS-IGAN clinical trial, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 3 study of the safety and efficacy of narsoplimab in patients with immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy.

The purpose of this clinical trial is to see if the investigational drug narsoplimab is safe in people with IgA nephropathy and can help to treat IgA nephropathy.

  • The primary outcome measure is the change in urine protein excretion at 36 weeks.
  • This clinical trial is being conducted in patients aged 18 years and older who have a diagnosis of IgA nephropathy and meet other eligibility criteria.
  • After screening and evaluation, those taking part will receive either narsoplimab or placebo for 12 weeks.
  • Those who do not respond will be considered for an additional six weeks of treatment.

What is IgA Nephropathy?

IgA Nephropathy
IgA Nephropathy (also known as Berger's disease) is a progressive autoimmune disease that results in chronic inflammation of the kidneys and leads to reduced kidney function over time. The kidneys’ primary function is to filter the blood to remove waste and excess fluid. IgA nephropathy damages the kidneys’ ability to function properly. Show more
