Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of SelK2 to Prevent Blood Clots in Patients Undergoing Total Knee Replacement
A Phase 2, Randomized, Active Comparator-Controlled, Open-Label, Adaptive Design Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Intravenously-Administered SelK2 in Patients Undergoing Total Knee Arthroplasty
The main purpose of this study is to determine if an investigational medication called SelK2 works in preventing a condition called "venous thromboembolism" (VTE) in patients having a total knee replacement. SelK2 has been designed to attach to a protein found on blood cells and blood vessels. By attaching to this protein, SelK2 is designed to decrease the inflammatory process in the blood vessel wall that leads to the formation of blood clots in the vessel (called thrombosis). By decreasing the inflammatory process, SelK2 may reduce the risk of VTE following joint replacement surgery. In addition, because SelK2 is not a blood thinner, it is expected that the risk for bleeding will also be reduced.
Key Inclusion Criteria: Males or females, 18-80 years of age (inclusive) Planned to undergo elective, primary total unilateral Total Knee Arthroplasty under general anesthesia Key Exclusion Criteria: Previous deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the leg or pulmonary embolism (PE) within the past year Any underlying condition (e.g., atrial fibrillation, mechanical heart valve, or recent pulmonary embolism) that may lead to the required concomitant use of anticoagulants/antiplatelet agents (e.g., warfarin, dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, clopidogrel) that may affect study outcome or any other drug influencing coagulation (except low dose aspirin (100 mg or less)) Anticipated use of intermittent pneumatic compression devices and/or electrical/mechanical muscle stimulators post Total Knee Arthroplasty procedure

The primary efficacy endpoint was incidence of total VTE (reported as a percentage of patients) during the Treatment Phase up to venography day (10 ± 2 days after total knee replacement). All efficacy endpoint data was adjudicated by the blinded Central Independent Adjudication Committee (CIAC).
All suspected bleeding events were reviewed by the Central Independent Adjudication Committee (CIAC) in a blinded fashion and were adjudicated for categorization as Major Bleeding (MB), Clinically Relevant Non-Major Bleeding (CRNMB), Minor Bleeding, or combination of MB and CRNMB. The outcome measure assessed the incidence of MB or CRNMB.
