  • 25. LGG Clinical Trials – Snydman, VRE
      • Probiotic Lactobacillus GG to Eliminate Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcal (VRE) Colonization, Phase I
      • Tuft New England Medical Center
      • Principal Investigator, David Snydman, MD, FACP
        • Chief, Division of Geographic Medicine and Infectious Diseases and Hospital Epidemiologist
        • Professor of Medicine, Tufts School of Medicine
        • Study Dates: March Ongoing
      • The primary comparison will be VRE elimination rates among those patients that receive LGG compared to those that receive placebo. The primary endpoint will be the proportion of patients with VRE at one week after cessation of administration of study medication or placebo. The investigators assume that the placebo group will have very little spontaneous elimination of VRE and that the LGG group will be more likely to have eliminated VRE colonization at the end of one week.
    Page
  • 26. What is VRE?
    • Enterococci are a group bacteria that commonly live in the gut, but can cause infection in other areas of the body. They can be resistant to several antibiotics, but in the past, physicians could rely on the drug vancomycin to effectively treat enterococcal infections.
    • In recent decades, however, some enterococci have become resistant to vancomycin. The two main species that cause problems are vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis , with E. faecium being the most common.
    • Vancomycin resistance is acquired when a sensitive Enterococcus acquires a special piece of DNA called a plasmid. The new strain is called vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE).
    • One concern is that VRE appears able to transfer vancomycin resistance to unrelated bacteria such as MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus ). In addition, VRE organisms are usually resistant to more than one antibiotic.
    • VRE can also be spread from person to person and are an increasing problem in hospitals and chronic-care facilities. Approximately 30% of all enterococcal infections are now caused by vancomycin-resistant strains (VRE).

  • 27. LGG Clinical Trials-Hibberd, Healthy Adult
    • Safety of Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG ATCC 53103 (LGG) in Healthy Volunteers, Phase I
      • Principal Investigator: Patricia L. Hibberd, MD, PhD
      • Chief, Division of Global Health, Mass General Hospital for Children
      • Consultant, Infectious Disease Unit, Mass General Hosp
      • Additional study location: Tufts Medical Center
      • Study Dates: Dec 2009-July 2012
    • This study is a single site, Phase I, masked, randomized study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of twice daily dosing of LGG (Lactobacillus GG ATCC 53103) in normal healthy adult volunteers. Study drug capsules (1x10^10 LGG/capsule or placebo) will be taken by mouth twice a day with cow's milk or soy milk on an outpatient basis. Volunteers will have study visits at baseline, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 7 months, and 12 months where they will be asked about any medical problems that have come up since the last study visit, have vital signs taken, review current medication use, and review any signs of potential adverse events. Blood and urine samples will also be collected at these visits, as well as throat and stool samples.
    Page
  • 28. LGG Clinical Trials-Hibberd Healthy Adults
    • The goal is to assess the safety and tolerability of LGG when administered to healthy adult volunteers twice a day. Assessment of safety will be determined by vital sign measurements, physical examinations, clinical laboratory tests, and from the incidence and severity of adverse events that occur during study participation.
    • Additionally, the study will assess whether LGG colonizes the throat and/or gastrointestinal tract of healthy adult volunteers and assess the effect of LGG on the bacteria that normally live in the throat and GI tract by using culture-independent techniques.
    • Volunteers enrolled in this study will also be invited to participate in a companion genetic study that will investigate the host immune response to the bacteria in LGG.
    • Cornerstone study in LGG safety and efficacy to permit further research
    • This will be the longest study purely on the safety of LGG in healthy adults.

  • 29. LGG Clinical Trials-Shien Lo, Healthy Adults
    • Effect of Lactobacillus GG Probiotic on Health Adults, Phase I
      • Principal Investigator, Tze Shien Lo, MD
        • Internal Medicine, Infectious Disease, Fargo VA Medical Center
        • Associate Professor of Medicine, University of North Dakota
        • Completion Date: Feb 2010 – Sept 2011
    • Diarrhea is a common side effect of antibiotics; it may prolong hospital stay, increase the risk of other infections, develop into more serious forms of disease, and lead to premature discontinuation of the needed antibiotic. The purpose of this study is to examine the safety and effectiveness of a capsule containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG in the prevention of diarrhea associated with antibiotic use.

  • 30. LGG Clinical Trials-Bajaj, Liver Disease
    • Probiotic Lactobacillus GG (LGG) in Patients With Minimal Hepatic Encephalopathy
      • Principal Investigator, Jasmohan Bajaj, MC MSc
      • Associate Prof of Medicine, Division of Gastroentoerology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Virginia Commonwealth University
      • Completion Date: Oct 2009 – Nov 2012
    Page
  • 31. LGG Clinical Trials-Bajaj, Liver Disease
    • Development of complementary and alternative medicine approaches to liver disease is a priority area at NCCAM. Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) is a significant complication of cirrhosis which can result in poor quality of life, impaired cognition and difficulty in driving motor vehicles with a high traffic accident risk. MHE is estimated to affect one half of the 5.5 million cirrhotics in the U.S. Despite these negative outcomes, there is no consensus on treatment of MHE. Currently available therapies for MHE act on intestinal flora but are limited by adverse effects (i.e. lactulose-induced diarrhea), which negatively impact adherence. Probiotic bacterial supplements, which also act on intestinal flora, are an emerging therapy for MHE. Our group has performed a pilot, randomized trial which demonstrated a significantly higher rate of MHE reversal with excellent adherence in patients randomized to probiotic yogurt compared to no therapy. This proposal intends to define Lactobacillus GG (LGG) as a biologically-based alternative therapy for MHE with special focus on metabolic and stool bacteriologic changes.
    • The hypothesis of this Phase I proposal is: LGG will be safe and efficacious for the treatment of minimal hepatic encephalopathy compared to placebo in a randomized, double-blind trial.

  • 32. Clinical Trials Key Insights
      • Tufts, Dr. Snydman: Probiotic Lactobacillus GG to Eliminate Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcal (VRE) Colonization-one of the rising costly nosocomial infections
      • Mass Gen & Tufts, Dr. Hibberd: Safety of Lactobacillus GG in Healthy Adult and Elderly Volunteers (2 separate studies). NIH requested studies to validate safety in healthy volunteers prior to use in disease states.
        • Healthy adults-placebo controlled (18-50yrs old)
        • Healthy Elderly-open label (65-80yrs old)
      • Mass Gen, Dr. Hibberd: LGG in elderly getting inactivated flu vaccine–starting fall 2011
      • Mass Gen, Dr. Hibberd: LGG in elderly getting live flu vaccine–starting summer 2012
      • University of North Dakota, Dr. Shien Lo: Effect of Lactobacillus GG on AAD in Adults—would be beneficial if we can demonstrate some + results in adults.
      • Virginia Commonwealth Univ, Dr. Bajaj: Effect of Lactobacillus GG in Patients With Minimal Hepatic Encephalopathy—would demonstrate another systemic effect if + and at the least will demonstrate safety in a “ill” population.

  • 33. Brainstrong Prenatal Market Insights
    • Prenatal vitamin category is an atypical market.
    • -Big, complicated market with players in Rx Generic, Rx Branded, and OTC. Over 200+ competitors
    • -Category is fragmented with no clear category leader.
    Page Generics have large slice of pie -No clear divisions between premium/everyday/value brands as in a natural market. -Small US pharma companies have strong presence, but medium-sized European and Asian companies have bought into market for reasons other than prenatal vitamins.
  • 34. Brainstrong Prenatal OBGYN Research Findings
    • Cost plays a factor in this decision
      • Physicians report monthly copays of $20 to $50 per month for prescription prenatals
        • OTCs are a less expensive alternative
    • Physicians report that all of the “major” prescription prenatal vitamins are sampled to their office
      • Samples of prenatal vitamins are very important to OB/GYNs
      • Samples provide an opportunity for the patient to test tolerability before filling prescription
      • Patients are usually provided with several brands of samples and asked to decide for themselves
    • Use of OTC, as an alternative to high insurance copays
      • Copays reported to be $20-$50 per month
      • For patients without insurance coverage or poor coverage
    • Most OB/GYNs voice positive reactions
      • Positive reactions
        • Price of $19.99 per month is often cited
        • Plant-based DHA seen as a positive; no “fishy smell”
        • High dose of DHA (350 mg)
        • Easier to recommend an OTC than write a prescription
    Page
  • 35. Brainstrong Prenatal Market Objectives
    • Break the traditional “knee jerk” habit of writing a prescription for a prenatal vitamin by offering Brainstrong as a better alternative for both OB/Gyns and pharmacists.
    • Leverage Brainstrong OTC status as a way to provide patients with optimum benefits at a competitive price.
    • Focus most resources on OB/GYN’s as the primary audience
    • Create awareness and encourage recommendations of Brainstrong Prenatal among OBGYN’s, Nurse Midwives and Pharmacists, to gain a foothold with this growing market.

    • We successfully introduced BrainStrong to OB/GYNs, answered questions about BrainStrong and distributed product samples. In addition, we informally questioned physicians about their prenatal vitamin prescribing habits to gauge their reaction to and potential usage of BrainStrong. Overall their reaction was extremely positive!
    • The message, “the complete OTC vitamin with 350mg of DHA that has everything you need in a PNV at a competitive price,’ was on target with MDs.
    • Price was a big issue. Almost universally the first question asked was “how much does it cost?” When told $19.99 for a 30-day supply all were impressed, and usually stated that it was a lot less than current co-pays.
