Does MAP kinase inhibition with CNI-1493 prevent post-ERCP pancreatitis?

- candidate number1358
- NTR NumberNTR196
- Date ISRCTN created20-dec-2005
- date ISRCTN requested18-okt-2005
- Date Registered NTR9-sep-2005
- Secondary IDsN/A 
- Public TitleDoes MAP kinase inhibition with CNI-1493 prevent post-ERCP pancreatitis?
- Scientific TitleMAP kinase inhibition for the prevention of post-ERCP pancreatitis.
- hypothesisProphylactic administration of p38 MAP/JNK kinase inhibitor may decrease the incidence of post-ERCP pancreatitis through inhibition of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1, IL-6, TNF and MIP. In animal studies CNI-1493 or related compounds have been shown to reduce the severity of experimental pancreatitis and pancreatitis associated lung injury.
- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedEndoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), Pancreatitis
- Inclusion criteria1. Included are all patients who do not fit the exclusion criteria and will undergo an ERCP with the intention to:
a. Cannulate and visualize the pancreatic duct;
b. Perform therapeutic procedures (e.g. stenting, balloon dilatation, sphincter manometry, precut papillotomy, stone extraction, (intra-luminal) endosonography, ESWL and dilatation.) in the pancreatic duct, common bile duct or left and right hepatic ducts.
2. Patients must agree to use acceptable means of birth control for at least 3 months after the procedure;
3. Patients must sign informed consent.
- Exclusion criteria1. Diagnostic ERCP (low risk);
2. Active pancreatitis at time of ERCP (confounding);
3. Severe abdominal pain pre ERCP (confounding);
4. Age < 18 years (contra indication);
5. Known or suspected pregnancy or breast-feeding (contra indication);
6. ERCP for stent exchange in malignant disease (low risk);
7. Severe chronic pancreatitis (low risk);
8. Kidney failure, ie, serum creatinine > 2.0 mg/dl (> 180 M) (any state, contra indication);
9. Other anti-TNF therapy (eg, infliximab) within 8 weeks of intended study treatment.

3. Does administration of CNI-1493 decrease the incidence of post ERCP hyperamylasemia in high risk patients undergoing ERCP?
4. Does administration of CNI-1493 decrease the levels of post ERCP IL-6, IL-8, TNF and IL-1 in high risk patients undergoing ERCP?

- Brief summaryAcute pancreatitis can be due to many causes including biliary stone disease, alcohol abuse, and medication. It can also be caused by medical intervention through manipulation of area of the ampulla of Vater and diagnostic and/or therapeutic interventions in the biliary and pancreatic ductal system (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography (ERCP)).

The overall reported incidence of post-ERCP pancreatitis is 7%, in certain subgroups with an increased risk this goes up to 20%. Local damage (temporary increased ductal pressure due to contrast injection andor oedema due to manipulations) is followed by a local inflammatory response (TNF, IL-1, IL-6). In 80% of cases post-ERCP pancreatitis runs a relatively benign course with a few day o (severe) abdominal pain and a uneventful recovery. In other cases a severe pancreatitis develops with necrosis of parenchymal pancreatitis tissue (with or without infection) and a systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS).

In the latter group morbidity and mortality are high. Of these patients 25% will die. Recently, a group of synthetic guanylhydrazone compounds have been developed and one of its representatives CNI-1493 (a p38 MAP kinase inhibitor) proved to be a very powerful inhibitor of TNF-alpha. In addition, CNI-1493 inhibits a host of other macrophage induced pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1, IL-6, MIP-1 en MIP-1).

The primary question that we want to address is whether it is possible with the prophylactic administration of CNI-1493 to lower the incidence of post-ERCP pancreatitis.

The study is double blind and randomized. Patients with a increased risk to develop post-ERCP pancreatitis will be randomized between prophylactic administration of CNI-1493 (50 mg IV) and placebo.

Patients will be follow-up for 48 hours. Blood samples will be taken at regular intervals for amylase and lipase (and CRP, IL-6, IL-1, TNF, IL-8). Clinical symptoms such as pain are quantified by means of VAS scores and noted.
The primary endpoint is the incidence of post-ERCP pancreatitis.
Other (secondary) endpoints include morbidity, mortality, incidence of post-ERCP hyper hyperamylasemia, serum concentrations of cytokines/chemokines.
