COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

(BAL), and by increased GM-CSF autoantibodies in serum.

- Stable or progressive aPAP during a minimum period of two months prior to the Baseline
visit.

- Arterial oxygen concentration <75 mmHg/<10 kilo Pascal (kPa) at rest, OR desaturation

after a confirmed menstrual period using a highly efficient method of contraception
(i.e. a method with <1% failure rate such as combined hormonal contraception,
progesterone-only hormonal contraception, intrauterine device, intrauterine
hormone-releasing system, bilateral tubal occlusion, vasectomised partner, sexual
abstinence), during and until 30 days after last dose of double-blind trial treatment.
Females of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test at
Screening (Visit 1) and a negative urine pregnancy test at dosing at Baseline (Visit

and other trial procedures specified in the protocol as judged by the investigator
Minimum age
18 Years
Maximum age
75 Years
Gender
Both males and females
Can healthy volunteers participate?
No
Key exclusion criteria
- Diagnosis of hereditary or secondary pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP)

- WLL within one month of Baseline

- Treatment with GM-CSF within three months of Baseline

- Treatment with rituximab within six months of Baseline

- Treatment with plasmapheresis within three months of Baseline

- Treatment with any investigational medicinal product within four weeks of Screening

- Concomitant use of sputum modifying drugs such as carbocysteine or ambroxol

- History of allergic reactions to GM-CSF

- Connective tissue disease, inflammatory bowel disease or other autoimmune disorder
requiring treatment associated with significant immunosuppression, e.g. more than 10
mg/day systemic prednisolone

any kind of medicinal product

- History of, or present, myeloproliferative disease or leukaemia

Summary
Brief summary
This study evaluates inhaled molgramostim (recombinant human (rh) Granulocyte
Macrophage-Colony Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF)) in the treatment of autoimmune pulmonary
alveolar proteinosis patients. A third of the patients will receive inhaled molgramostim
daily for 24 weeks, a third will receive inhaled molgramostim intermittently (seven days on,
seven days off) for 24 weeks and a third will receive inhaled matching placebo for 24 weeks.
