Synopsis :
Added: Oct 11, 2017 4:48 pm
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) intends to award a purchase order toAlliance Pharma Inc. for Sample analysis of 48 total samples to quantify ManNAc and Neu5Ac.

The Nationall Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, & Kidney Diseases is currently conducting a clinical trial entitled "A Phase 1 Multiple Ascending Dose Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics of ManNAc in Subjects with Primary Podocyte Diseases " (16-DK-0036 ; clinicaltrials.gov identifier NTC02639260). ManNAc is converted inside cells to sialic acid (Neu5Ac). The basis for this clinical trial is that there is evidence that some subjects with primary glomerular diseases do not put enough sialic acids on glomerular proteins and so ManNAc therapy may increase sialic acid production and sialylation of glomerular proteins in these subjects. For this clinical trial, it is important that concentrations of ManNAc and sialic acid (Neu5Ac) will be measured in plasma at various times before and after oral dosing of ManNAc. These results will inform about the absorption of ManNAc by the GI tract/cells and the subsequent production of sialic acid in subjects with primary glomerular diseases.


Alliance Pharma developed validated (per FDA guidelines) LC/MSMS assays to measure ManNAc and Neu5Ac in plasma. We have been working with this company since the start of this trial and they have already performed these assays for 4 subjects under a different contract. The purpose of this project is to provide analysis of the compounds ManNAc and Neu5Ac.
