Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

The safety of MULPLETA was evaluated in 3 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials, L-PLUS 1, L-PLUS 2, and M0626, in which patients with chronic liver disease and thrombocytopenia were treated with MULPLETA (N=171) or placebo (N=170) at a dose of 3 mg daily for up to 7 days prior to a scheduled procedure.

The majority of patients were males (59%), and median age was 61 years (range 19-88). The racial and ethnic distribution was White (50%), Asian (47%), Black (<1%), and Other (3%).

The most common adverse reactions (those occurring in at least 3%) in the MULPLETA-treated group across the pooled data from the three trials are summarized in table 1.

The incidence of serious adverse events was 5% (9 of 171 patients) in the MULPLETA group and 7% (12 of 170 patients) in the placebo group. The most common serious adverse reaction reported with MULPLETA was portal vein thrombosis. No adverse reactions resulted in discontinuation of MULPLETA.
