Phase 1a Study in Healthy Smokers to Investigate the Effect With MMI-0100 on Airway Inflammation in Induced Sputum After Challenge With Inhaled Lipopolysaccharide
A Randomised, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Two-Way Crossover Study in Healthy Smokers to Investigate the Effect of Inhaled Dosing With MMI-0100 on Airway Inflammation as Assessed in Induced Sputum After Challenge With Inhaled Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)
Lead SponsorMoerae Matrix, Inc.
Indication/ConditionAcute Inflammatory Response to Non-antigenic Stimulus
A Phase 1a, randomized, placebo controlled, two-way crossover study is to determine the effect of inhaled MMI-0100 compared to placebo following LPS challenge on inflammatory markers.
The purpose of this Phase 1a, randomized, placebo controlled, two-way crossover study is to determine the effect of inhaled MMI-0100 compared to placebo on inflammatory markers following 5 days once daily (qd) dose of MMI-0100 or placebo administered by inhalation. On Day 5 of each treatment period, subjects will be challenged with inhaled LPS. Pharmacokinetics and biomarkers will be conducted at selected timepoints.
MMI-0100 Inhaled, once daily x 5, followed by 3 week washout period, followed by Placebo Inhaled, once daily x 5
