TRIAL DESCRIPTION
Public title APC-AF-CLN-004
Official scientific title A South African multicenter, phase 2, non-blinded, randomized controlled trial to determine if aerosolized surfactant plus continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) compared to CPAP alone can improve the course of infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) by decreasing their need for intratracheal bolus surfactant in the first 72 hours of age.
Brief summary describing the background and objectives of the trial A South African multicenter, phase 2, non-blinded, randomized controlled trial to determine if aerosolized surfactant plus continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) compared to CPAP alone can improve the course of infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) by decreasing their need for intratracheal bolus surfactant in the first 72 hours of age.

STUDY DESIGN
Intervention assignment Allocation to intervention If randomised, describe how the allocation sequence was generated Describe how the allocation sequence/code was concealed from the person allocating the participants to the intervention arms Masking If masking / blinding was used
Parallel: different groups receive different interventions at same time during study Randomised Simple randomization using a randomization table created by a computer software program Allocation was determined by the holder of the sequence who is situated off site Open-label(Masking Not Used)
INTERVENTIONS
Intervention type Intervention name Dose Duration Intervention description Group size Nature of control
Experimental Group SFR1 1 Surfactant 216mg/k per dose 2 - 32 hours of age As soon as possible following randomization to the Intervention group, infants will receive one dose of aerosolized SF-RI 1 surfactant of 216 mg/k per dose if they have: a persistent FiO2 of 0.25 – 0.35 on nCPAP at 5-7cmH2O0 to maintain peripheral oxygen saturation of 90 -95%. FiO2 requirement needs to be sustained for at least 15 minutes. The dose of SF-RI 1 will be calculated by the designated study staff member. The estimated time to deliver a single dose of SF-RI 1 by aerosolization is: 1000 g: 60 - 90 minutes 1500 g: 90 – 120 minutes 2000 g: 120- 180 minutes . Infants randomized to the Intervention group may receive one additional dose of aerosolized SF-RI 1 surfactant of 216 mg/kg per dose (for a total of two doses) if the following re-dosing criteria are met: 30 minutes have elapsed since the end of the first dose and an ongoing and persistent FiO2 of 0.30 – 0.40 on nCPAP at 5-7 cmH2O to maintain peripheral oxygen saturation of 90 -95%. FiO2 requirement needs to be sustained for at least 15 minutes. 116
Control Group Intratracheal bolus surfactant 100mg/kg Anytime from randomisation to 72 hours of age If an infant meets failure criteria the infant is eligible to receive intratracheal bolus surfactant. At each site, . An FiO2 > 0.40 is consistent with the unit protocol to administer intratracheal bolus surfactant and aligns with the current standard of care. However, bolus intratracheal surfactant instillation will not be mandated and will be at the discretion of the clinician, who is guided by the unit protocol. Bolus surfactant may be administered by LISA, INSURE or intubation for surfactant delivery and ongoing mechanical ventilation. At most study sites, Beractant 100 mg/kg (Survanta) via LISA would be the standard of care for delivering intratracheal bolus surfactant. 116 Active-Treatment of Control Group

OUTCOMES
Type of outcome Outcome Timepoint(s) at which outcome measured
Primary Outcome To determine if aerosolized surfactant given to preterm infants with RDS on nCPAP, compared with nCPAP alone, reduces the need for intratracheal bolus surfactant instillation in the first 72 hours of age. 72 hours of age
Secondary Outcome To compare the need for repeat intratracheal bolus surfactant dosing between groups To compare the need for mechanical ventilation between groups To compare the duration of mechanical ventilation, CPAP, high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) and supplementary oxygen between groups To compare the rate of adverse events and usually reported selected comorbidities of prematurity between groups (see Appendix for definitions) To compare the incidence of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD), defined as the need for respiratory support at 36 weeks postmenstrual age, between groups To compare the incidence of death at any time between groups To compare the incidence of death or BPD between groups 72 hours of age
