The primary objective of this study is to establish the effect of KRN23 treatment on improvement in XLH-associated osteomalacia as determined by osteoid volume (osteoid volume/bone volume, OV/BV).

Official Title

An Open-Label, Single-Arm, Phase 3 Study to Evaluate the Effects of KRN23 on Osteomalacia in Adults With X-linked Hypophosphatemia (XLH)


X-linked Hypophosphatemia KRN23 Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) XLH Hypophosphatemia Osteomalacia Familial Hypophosphatemic Rickets Burosumab Open-Label Burosumab Q4W

Open to people ages 18-65

  1. Male or female, aged 18 - 65 years, inclusive
  2. Diagnosis of XLH supported by classic clinical features of adult XLH (such as short stature or bowed legs), and at least ONE of the following at Screening:
  3. Documented phosphate regulating gene with homology to endopeptidases located on the X chromosome (PHEX) PHEX mutation in either the patient or in a directly related family member with appropriate X-linked inheritance
  4. Serum intact FGF23 (iFGF23) level > 30 pg/mL by Kainos assay
  5. Biochemical findings consistent with XLH based on overnight fasting (min. 8 hours):
  6. Serum phosphorus < 2.5 mg/dL at Screening
  7. TmP/GFR < 2.5 mg/dL at Screening
  8. Presence of skeletal pain attributed to XLH/osteomalacia, as defined by a score of ≥ 4 on the Brief Pain Inventory question 3 (BPI-Q3, Worst Pain) at Screening. (Skeletal pain that, in the opinion of the investigator, is attributed solely to causes other than XLH/osteomalacia—for example, back pain or joint pain in the presence of severe osteoarthritis by radiograph in that anatomical location—in the absence of any skeletal pain likely attributed to XLH/osteomalacia should not be considered for eligibility)
  9. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ≥ 60 mL/min (using the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration [CKD-EPI] equation) or estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) eGFR of 45 to <60 mL/min at Screening with confirmation that the renal insufficiency is not due to nephrocalcinosis
  10. Provide written informed consent after the nature of the study has been explained, and prior to any research-related procedures. If the subject in a minor, provide written assent and have a legally authorized representative willing and able to provide written informed consent, after the nature of the study has been explained, and prior to any research-related procedures
  11. Willing to provide access to prior medical records for the collection of biochemical and radiographic data and disease history
  12. Females of child-bearing potential must have a negative urine pregnancy test at Screening and be willing to have additional pregnancy tests during the study. Females considered not to be of childbearing potential include those who have been in menopause for at least two years prior to Screening, or have had tubal ligation at least one year prior to Screening, or have had a total hysterectomy or bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
  13. Participants of child‐bearing potential or with partners of child-bearing potential who have not undergone a total hysterectomy or a bilateral salpingo‐oophorectomy and are sexually active must consent to use two effective methods of contraception as determined by the site investigator (i.e. oral hormonal contraceptives, patch hormonal contraceptives, vaginal ring, intrauterine device, physical double-barrier methods,surgical hysterectomy, vasectomy, tubal ligation, or true abstinence) from the period following the signing of the informed consent through 12 weeks after last dose of study drug
  14. . Must, in the opinion of the investigator, be willing and able to complete all aspects of the study, adhere to the study visit schedule and comply with the assessments

  1. Use of any pharmacologic vitamin D metabolite or analog (e.g. calcitriol,doxercalciferol, and paricalcitol) within the 2 years before Screening
  2. Use of oral phosphate within 2 years before Screening
  3. Use of aluminum hydroxide antacids, acetazolamides, and thiazides within 7 days prior to Screening
  4. Use of bisphosphonates in the 2 years prior to Screening
  5. Use of denosumab in the 6 months prior to Screening
  6. Use of teriparatide in the 2 months prior to Screening
  7. Chronic use of systemic corticosteroids defined as more than 10 days in the 2 months prior to Screening
  8. Corrected serum calcium level ≥ 10.8 mg/dL (2.7 mmol/L) at Screening
  9. Serum intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) ≥ 2.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) at Screening
  10. . Use of medication to suppress parathyroid hormone (PTH) (cinacalcet for example)within 60 days prior to Screening
  11. . Prothrombin time/Partial thromboplastin time (PT/PTT) outside the normal range at Screening
  12. . Evidence of any disease or use of anticoagulant medication (such as warfarin, heparin,direct thrombin inhibitors, or xabans that, in the opinion of the investigator, cannot be discontinued) that may increase the risk of bleeding during the biopsy procedure
  13. . Pregnant or breastfeeding at Screening or planning to become pregnant (self or partner) at any time during the study
  14. . Unable or unwilling to withhold prohibited medications throughout the study
  15. . Documented dependence on narcotics
  16. . Use of KRN23, or any other therapeutic monoclonal antibody within 90 days prior to Screening
  17. . Use of investigational product or investigational medical device within 30 days prior to Screening, or requirement for any investigational agent prior to completion of all scheduled study assessments.

OR, in Japan, use of any investigational product or investigational medical device within 4 months prior to Screening, or requirement for any investigational agent prior to completion of all scheduled study assessments.

  1. . Presence or history of any hypersensitivity, allergic or anaphylactic reactions to any monoclonal antibody or KRN23 excipients that, in the judgment of the investigator,places the subject at increased risk for adverse effects
  2. . History of allergic reaction or adverse reactions to tetracycline or demeclocycline
  3. . Prior history of positive test for human immunodeficiency virus antibody, hepatitis B surface antigen, and/or hepatitis C antibody
  4. . History of recurrent infection (other than dental abscesses, which are known to be associated with XLH) or predisposition to infection, or of known immunodeficiency
  5. . Presence of malignant neoplasm (except basal cell carcinoma)
  6. . Presence of a concurrent disease or condition that would interfere with study participation or affect safety
  7. . Presence or history of any condition that, in the view of the investigator, places the subject at high risk of poor treatment compliance or of not completing the study
