Health Condition(s) or Problem(s) studied
Therapeutic area: Diseases [C] - Nutritional and Metabolic Diseases [C18]
Wilson disease, also known as hepatolenticular degeneration, a rare automsomal, recessively inherited disorder which results in chronic copper intoxication.
MedDRA version: 20.0 Level: PT Classification code 10019819 Term: Hepato-lenticular degeneration System Organ Class: 10010331 - Congenital, familial and genetic disorders
Intervention(s)

Trade Name: Trientine dihydrochloride 300mg capsules
Pharmaceutical Form: Capsule, hard

Primary Outcome(s)
Main Objective: Assess the clinical course of Cu stores, neurological disease, and hepatic disease following initiation of treatment with trientine following withdrawal of d-Penicillamine. Retrospective data will be collected from visits at 6, 12, 24, 36 and 48 months, and at the last available follow up and will be based on the Investigator's score (unchanged, improved but not normal, improved to normal, asymptomatic over duration, and worsened).
Primary end point(s): Efficacy Endpoints: The clinical course of neurological and hepatic disease for each time point available after initiation of treatment (6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 months, and at the last available time point while taking second line trientine) will be scored (Investigator’s score) based on the status at the time of initiating trientine as: 1 = Unchanged 2 = Improved but not normal 3 = Improved to normal 4 = Asymptomatic over duration of therapy 5 = Worsened. ? The clinical course of hepatic disease at 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 months and at the last available time point while taking second line trientine, based on the Investigator’s score and based on hepatic status at the time of initiating trientine ? The clinical course of neurological disease at 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 months and at the last available time point while taking second line trientine, based on the Investigator’s score and based on neurological status at the time of initiating trientine ? Cu storage and metabolism, measured at 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 months and at the last available time point after initiating second line trientine therapy, by available tests, eg, 24-hour urinary Cu excretion, serum ceruloplasmin (CPN), and Serum Cu, compared to Cu storage values at the time of initiating trientine. Overall duration of treatment, defined as time to discontinuation of treatment due to AEs and/or inadequate response, will be assessed after initiation of trientine. ? Time to discontinuation of trientine due to AEs ? Time to discontinuation of trientine due to inadequate response measured by poor clinical outcome (failure to stabilise or reverse signs and symptoms) where: o Inadequate hepatic response is defined by: ? Progression to liver transplant ? Increase of at least 2 of 3 liver enzymes (aspartate aminotransferase [AST], alanine aminotransferase [ALT], gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase [GGT]) = 2 x normal or = 2 x baseline ? Increase of 24-hour urinary Cu excretion when collected in 2 consecutive measurements o Inadequate neurological response is defined by neurological deterioration (physician’s decision). ? Patient treatment status at the last available time point: o Treatment status o If trientine stopped: ? Reason for discontinuing ? When trientine discontinued o What new treatment prescribed. Safety Endpoint: ? Adverse events related to trientine treatment and AEs leading to discontinuation of trientine will be assessed at each available study time point.
Secondary Objective: - Assess the safety of trientine treatment based on reported adverse events (AEs), including AEs leading to discontinuation of treatment with trientine
- Determine duration of treatment with second line therapy trientine, defined as time to discontinuation of treatment due to AEs and/or inadequate response.

This study aims to show that trientine is likely to be better tolerated without compromising effective treatment management of Wilson disease when given 2nd line to d-Penicillamine.
Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point: The time point available after initiation of treatment (6, 12, 24, 36 and 48 months), and at the last available time point while taking second line trientine.
