Open Label Extension Study of GBT440 Clinical Trial Patients with Sickle Cell Disease Who Participated in GBT440 Clinical Trials

Official Title

An Open Label Extension Study of GBT440 Administered Orally to Patients With Sickle Cell Disease Who Have Participated in GBT440 Clinical Trials


This international open-label extension (OLE) study will be available to eligible participants from Study GBT440-031. The study will be conducted at approximately 100 clinical sites.

All participants in GBT440-031 who completed 72 weeks of treatment are eligible for this study. Depending on their Group assignment in GBT440-031, participants may be eligible for this study prior to the completion of 72 weeks of treatment; see the GBT440-031 protocol for additional information.

All participants (approximately 435) who have received treatment in Study GBT440-031 and who meet the eligibility criteria for this study may be enrolled.

The objective of this open-label extension (OLE) study is to assess the effect of long-term treatment with GBT440 in participants who have completed treatment in Study GBT440-031, using the following parameters:

  1. Hemolysis markers as measured by hematological laboratory parameters (e.g. hemoglobin, reticulocytes and unconjugated bilirubin).
  2. Frequency of sickle cell-related complications
  3. Safety based upon AEs, clinical laboratory tests, physical examinations (PE) and other clinical measures.

All participants will receive daily GBT440 treatment.

If both the 900 and 1500 mg dose are maintained for the GBT440-031 study's Main Population, then participants will continue receiving the GBT440 dose they were randomized to in the GBT440-031 study. Participants who received placebo in GBT440-031 will be re-randomized 1:1 to receive GBT440 900 mg or 1500 mg in this study. If one dose is selected from the Main Population analysis, this dose may be used for all participants.

Duration of Treatment:

Participants may receive study drug as long they continue to receive clinical benefit which outweighs risk as determined by the Investigator and/or until the participant has access to GBT440 from an alternative source (i.e., commercialization or through a managed access program).
