Summary

This study is to identify if a Novel Antiviral Drug could be used to treat babies with Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) with central nervous system (CNS) disease. In this study the investigators will identify the best dose for young children as well as identify additional safety information about the Novel Antiviral Drug.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Safety and Dose-Determining Study of CMX001 In Infants With Neonatal Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) Infection Involving the Central Nervous System (CNS Disease)

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:

Evaluate the safety and tolerability of CMX001 oral suspension in infants being treated for neonatal HSV CNS disease.

Determine the plasma pharmacokinetics of the CMX001 and cidofovir following administration of CMX001 oral suspension in infants being treated for neonatal HSV CNS disease.

Secondary outcome:

Explore a plasma drug concentration-response relationship between CMX001 exposure and quantity of HSV DNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) at Day 4 of antiviral therapy

Explore a plasma drug concentration-response relationship between cidofovir exposure and quantity of HSV DNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) at Day 4 of antiviral therapy

Detailed description: In this study, the pharmacokinetics and safety of a Novel Antiviral Drug will be determined in babies with neonatal HSV CNS disease. The study will be conducted at 18 academic medical centers throughout the United States. Young infants presenting with virologic confirmation of neonatal HSV infection and evidence of CNS involvement will be eligible for study enrollment. Study Day 1 is defined as the day when dose 1 of the Novel Antiviral Drug study medication is administered.
