A Study to Evaluate ASP0367 in Participants With Primary Mitochondrial Myopathy
The purpose of the phase 2 portion of this study is to select a biologically-active ASP0367 dose level by pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) evaluation. The phase 2 portion of this study will also assess the safety and tolerability of ASP0367. The purpose of the phase 3 portion of this study is to assess the effect of ASP0367 on functional improvement relative to placebo and will also assess the safety and tolerability of ASP0367 relative to placebo. The phase 3 portion of this study will also assess the effect of ASP0367 on functional improvement and fatigue relative to placebo and will assess the effect of ASP0367 in overall participant functioning relative to placebo.

Participants with pacemakers are allowed in the study per investigator's discretion and after discussion with the medical monitor, and as long as it is used for prevention and there is no underlying cardiac dysfunction. - Participant has a corrected mean QT interval using Fridericia's correction (QTcF) > 450 msec for male participants and > 480 msec for female participants at screening or randomization. If QTcF exceeds these limits, one additional triplicate ECG can be repeated on the same day in order to determine the participant's eligibility. - ECG evidence of acute ischemia, atrial fibrillation or active conduction system abnormalities with the exception of any of the following: - First degree atrioventricular (AV)-block - Second degree AV-block Type 1 (Mobitz Type 1/Wenckebach type) - Right bundle branch block - Left fascicular block - Bi-fascicular block - Participant requires any ventilator support. - Participant has severe vision impairment that may interfere with their ability to complete all study requirements. - Participant has an intractable seizure disorder that may interfere with their ability to complete all study requirements. - Active malignancy or any other cancer from which the participant has been disease-free for < 5 years, except for curative treated localized non-melanoma skin cancer (e.g., basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma). - Participant has a solid organ transplant and/or is currently receiving treatment with therapy for immunosuppression. - Participant has severe scoliosis or kyphoscoliosis that significantly impair respiratory capacity and pulmonary function tests or limit positioning due to pain who would be likely to require orthopedic surgical intervention within a year after study randomization. - Participant has a positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B or hepatitis C infection at screening. - Participant has previously received ASP0367. - Participant has a history of active substance abuse within 1 year prior to randomization. - Participant has used any peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) ligands such as fibrates and thiazolidinediones within 4 weeks prior to randomization. - Participant has initiated the use of CoQ10, carnitine, creatine or other mitochondrial disease-focused supplements within 3 months prior to study randomization. - Participant has a known or suspected hypersensitivity to ASP0367 or any components of the formulation used. - Participant has symptomatic coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection within 3 months prior to study randomization that required treatment (Monoclonal antibodies, ventilator support, hospitalization) and/or led to long-term sequelae or lingering symptoms. - Participant has BMI below 18.5 kilogram per meter square (kg/m^2) or above 35 kg/m^2 at screening - Participant has bulbar weakness due to either neuropathy or myopathy

Efficacy (i.e., functional improvement) will be assessed by a functional motor test, 6-minute walk test (6MWT). The study consists of the following portions: screening (4 weeks); phase 2 dose selection portion with 2 doses of ASP0367 versus matching placebo (2 weeks); phase 3 portion with selected, single dose treatment versus placebo (up to 52 weeks); open-label extension (OLE) (24 weeks); and follow-up (4 weeks). During the phase 2 portion of the study, participants will be randomly placed into 1 of 3 arms (low dose ASP0367, high dose ASP0367 or placebo). The relevant dose level will be selected based on the pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics and overall safety. Participants will maintain their original Phase 2 dose level and no new participants will be enrolled in the study until phase 3 dose selection is made. After the phase 3 dose is selected, all participants except the placebo group will switch to the selected dose level of ASP0367 for the remainder of the phase 3 portion of the study (up to a total 52 weeks including the phase 2 portion). Participants who were originally assigned to placebo will remain on placebo for up to 52 weeks. The remaining enrollment of participants will be randomized to either ASP0367 or matching placebo at a ratio of 1:1. All participants who have completed the phase 3 portion of the study and are eligible for the OLE will be offered the opportunity to take ASP0367 for an additional 24 weeks.
