Brief Summary

The study is being performed to assess the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) properties of single oral doses of DBPR108 in healthy male subjects.

Detailed Description

This study represents the first administration of dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP4) inhibitor DBPR108 to humans to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) properties following single oral doses in healthy subjects.

DPP4 is a validated drug target for the treatment of human type 2 diabetes. Objectives of the study will be to characterize the safety and tolerability of single doses of DBPR108; to characterize the single dose PK of DBPR108 in plasma and urine; to characterize the single dose PD of DBPR108 on glucose, glucagon, dipeptidyl peptidase 4 activity, and total and active forms of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in plasma levels and insulin and C-peptide in serum levels.
