A Study of TAK-771 in Japanese Participants With Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) and Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN)


About the study

The main aim of the study is to check for side effects from TAK-771, and to check how well TAK-771 controls symptoms in Japanese participants with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) and multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) The participants will be treated with TAK-771 for 45 months as a maximum. There will be many clinic visits. The number of visits will depend on the infusion cycles of study drug (every 2, 3, or 4 weeks).

Who can take part

You may be eligible to participate in the study if you meet the following criteria:


Inclusion criteria

  1. Be a Japanese person.
  2. The participant is male or female >=18 years old at the time of screening.
  3. Participant has a documented diagnosis of definite or probable CIDP (focal atypical CIDP and pure sensory atypical CIDP will be excluded) or definite or probable MMN, as confirmed by a neurologist specializing/experienced in neuromuscular diseases to be consistent with the European Federation of Neurological Societies/Peripheral Nerve Society (EFNS/PNS) 2010 criteria.
  4. Participant has responded to IgG treatment in the past (partial or complete resolution of neurological symptoms and deficits), and must currently be on stable doses of IVIG treatment within the dose range equivalent to a cumulative monthly dose of 0.4 to 2.4 g/kg BW (inclusive) administered intravenously for at least 12 weeks prior to screening. The dosing interval of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment must be between 2 and 6 weeks (inclusive). Variations in the dosing interval of up to ±7 days or monthly dose amount of up to +or-20% between participant's pre-study IgG infusions are within acceptable limits.

CIDP participants only - INCAT disability score between 0 and 7 (inclusive). Participants with INCAT scores of 0, 1 (whether from upper or lower extremities), or 2 (if at least 1 point is from an upper extremity) at screening and/or baseline will be required to have a history of significant disability as defined by an INCAT disability score of 2 (must be exclusively from the lower extremities) or greater documented in the medical record. Participants will be eligible if one of the below eligibility criteria are met:

  1. Screening and Baseline INCAT disability score between 3 and 7 inclusive.
  2. Screening and/or Baseline INCAT disability score of 2 (both points are from lower extremities)
  3. Screening and/or Baseline INCAT disability score of 2 (both points are not from lower extremities) AND has at least a score of 2 or greater documented in the medical record prior to screening. If a score was greater than 2 documented in the medical record prior to screening at least 2 points must be from lower extremities.
  4. Screening and/or Baseline INCAT disability score of 0 or 1 AND has at least a score of 2 or greater (both from lower extremities) documented in the medical record prior to screening, at least 2 points must be from lower extremities.
  5. If female of childbearing potential, the participant must have a negative pregnancy test at screening and agree to employ a highly effective contraceptive measure throughout the course of the study and for at least 30 days after the last administration of IP.
  6. The participant is willing and able to sign an Informed Consent Form (ICF).
  7. The participant is willing and able to comply with the requirements of the protocol.


Exclusion Criteria CIDP patients

  2. Participant with presence of prominent sphincter disturbance.
  3. Participant with any central demyelinating disorders such as multiple sclerosis.

Participant with any chronic or debilitating disease, or central nervous disorder that causes neurological symptoms or may interfere with assessment of endpoint measures, including (but not limited to) arthritis, stroke, Parkinson's disease, and diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

(Participants with clinically diagnosed diabetes mellitus who do not have diabetic peripheral neuropathy and who have adequate glycemic control with hemoglobin A1c [HbA1c] level of <7.5% at screening will be eligible for the study, provided the electrodiagnostic criteria are consistent with the diagnosis of a definite or probable CIDP consistent with the EFNS/PNS 2010 criteria and the participant agrees to maintain adequate glycemic control.)

  1. Participant with congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association [NYHA] class III/IV), unstable angina, unstable cardiac arrhythmias, or uncontrolled hypertension (defined as diastolic blood pressure >100 mmHg and/or systolic blood pressure >160 mmHg).
