Descripción detallada

This was a Phase I, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose study to assess the safety, tolerability, and PK of CD24Fc in healthy male and female adult subjects.

The population for this study was healthy males and females between the ages of 18 and 55 years, inclusive, with a body mass index between 18 kg/m2 and 30 kg/m2, inclusive.

A total of 40 subjects were enrolled in this study, in 5 cohorts of 8 subjects each. Six of the 8 subjects in each cohort received study drug and 2 subjects received placebo (0.9% sodium chloride, saline). The first cohort was dosed with 10 mg. Succeeding cohorts received 30 mg, 60 mg, 120 mg, and 240 mg of CD24Fc or matching placebo and were dosed at least 3 weeks apart to allow for review of safety and tolerability data for each prior cohort. Administration of the next higher dose to a new cohort of subjects was permitted only if adequate safety and tolerability had been demonstrated.

In each cohort, the initial 2 subjects were 1 study drug recipient and 1 placebo recipient on Day 1 (sentinel subjects). Subjects 3 to 5 and 6 to 8 were dosed after Day 7 (a minimum of 24 hours apart between the subgroups). Each subject was dosed at least 1 hour apart in the same subgroup. If necessary, dosing of the rest of the subjects was delayed pending review of any significant safety issues that may have arisen during the post-dose period involving the first or second subgroups in that cohort. The subsequent cohort was dosed at least 3 weeks after the prior cohort.

The total study duration for each subject was up to 63 days. Single dose administration occurred on Day 1.

The Screening Visit (Visit 1) occurred up to 21 days prior to the beginning of the active treatment period. After providing informed consent, subjects underwent screening procedures for eligibility.

Subjects were admitted to the Clinical Pharmacology Unit (CPU) on Day -1 (Visit 2), and the randomized treatment period began on Day 1 following a 10-hour minimum overnight fast. Subjects were randomly assigned to treatment with CD24Fc or placebo as a single dose. Subjects remained confined until the morning of Day 4.

All subjects returned to the CPU on Day 7, Day 14, Day 21, Day 28, and Day 42 (±1 day) for follow-up visits (Visit 3, Visit 4, Visit 5, Visit 6, and Visit 7). Visit 7 was the final visit for all subjects.

The assessment of safety was based primarily on the frequency of adverse events, clinical laboratory assessments (chemistry, hematology, and urinalysis), physical examinations, vital signs, 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs), and continuous telemetry monitoring. The Intent-to-Treat (ITT) Population was used for all summaries.

PK parameters were calculated using actual collection times. The following PK parameters for CD24Fc were calculated from the individual plasma concentrations profile by non compartmental approaches.

The PK Evaluable Population was defined as all subjects in the ITT Population who had evaluable concentration-time profiles for CD24Fc. The PK Evaluable Population was the population used for all PK analyses.

The PK listing, summary, and analysis were performed based on the plasma concentration of CD24Fc by treatment. Pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated using actual collection times. The PK parameters for CD24Fc (Cmax, Tmax, kel, t½, AUC0-42d, AUC0-inf, AUCextr, CL, and Vd) were calculated from the individual plasma concentrations profile by non-compartmental approaches.

The concentration of CD24Fc was summarized descriptively at each nominal time point by treatment (e.g., n, mean, standard deviation [SD], coefficient of variation [CV%], standard error, median, minimum, and maximum). Mean concentration (±SD) was plotted on a linear scale against nominal time points by treatment. Geometric mean concentration was plotted on a semi-logarithmic scale against nominal time points. The PK Evaluable Population was used for the summary and individual concentrations.

Individual concentration-time curves for CD24Fc were plotted on both a linear and semi-logarithmic scale against actual sampling times by subject.

Pharmacokinetic parameters were summarized for the PK Evaluable Population. All parameters were summarized by treatment with the number of observations, mean, SD, CV%, standard error, median, maximum, and minimum. Geometric mean and geometric CV% were also provided for the summary of AUCs and Cmax.

Dose proportionality of CD24Fc plasma PK parameters (AUCs and Cmax) was assessed using the power model: y = a DoseB, where y denotes the PK parameter being analyzed and a depends on subject. Dose proportionality implies that B = 1 and was assessed by estimated β along with its 90% confidence interval (CI). The exponent, B, in the power model was estimated by regressing the log-transformed PK parameter on log-transformed dose.

The power model was fitted by restricted maximum likelihood using SAS Proc Mixed. Both the intercept and slope were fitted as fixed effects. The mean slope was estimated from the power model and the corresponding 90% CI calculated.

The ITT Population consisted of all subjects who received at least 1 dose of the study drug. The ITT Population was the primary analysis population for subject information and safety evaluation.

The assessment of safety was based primarily on the frequency and nature of adverse events, clinical laboratory assessments (chemistry, hematology, and urinalysis), physical examinations, vital signs, 12-lead ECGs, and telemetry monitoring. The ITT Population was used for all summaries.

All adverse events were summarized by system organ class, preferred term, and treatment. A list of subjects who had serious adverse events (SAEs) and who discontinued from the study due to an adverse event was provided. The number and percentage of subjects who experienced at least 1 treatment-emergent adverse event (TEAE) were presented for each system organ class and for each preferred term by treatment. Treatment-emergent adverse events that were considered by the Investigator to be related to study drug were summarized in the same manner. Serious adverse events and adverse events leading to discontinuation from the study were listed separately.

Clinical laboratory evaluations (chemistry, hematology, and urinalysis) were summarized by treatment and visit. Change from baseline was also summarized. Vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and temperature) were summarized by treatment and time point. Change from baseline was also summarized. All physical examination data were listed. Electrocardiogram parameters and the change from baseline were summarized. Overall interpretations were listed.
