Safety and Pharmacokinetic Study of Hepalatide(L47) in Healthy Volunteers
A Randomized, Double-Blinded, Safety and Pharmacokinetic Study of Escalating Single Doses of Hepalatide in Healthy Volunteers
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of Hepalatide(L47) and characterize the clinical pharmacokinetics in healthy volunteers.
This is a randomized, double-blinded, dose escalating, phase Ia trial, which will be conducted in No. 302 Hospital of China. There are seven cohorts at dose of 0.21mg, 0.525mg, 2.1mg, 4.2mg, 6.3mg, 8.4mg and 10.5mg. The first cohort with 0.21mg is an open test with no placebo as control. All other healthy volunteers will be randomized into Hepalatide or placebo group at 4:1 rate, and will be received drug by abdominal subcutaneous injection and will be observed for 8 days.
There are seven cohorts as follows 0.21mg, 0.525mg, 2.1mg, 4.2mg, 6.3mg, 8.4mg and 10.5mg. Dose of 0.21mg is a pilot trial with no placebo. At each dose level, healthy volunteers will be received treatment drug by abdominal subcutaneous injection at the first day and monitored for 8 days.
There are six cohorts as follows 0.525mg, 2.1mg, 4.2mg, 6.3mg, 8.4mg and 10.5mg. At each dose level, healthy volunteers will be received control drug by abdominal subcutaneous injection at the first day and monitored for 8 days.
