Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)

Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Ascending Single-dose Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of AMG 167 in Healthy Men and Postmenopausal Women

Further study details as provided by Amgen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The number (percent) of subjects reporting treatment-emergent adverse events. [ Time Frame: Cohort 1 - 29 days; cohorts 2, 3, 6, and 7 - 57 days; cohorts 4, 5, 8, and 9 - 85 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • The number of subjects experiencing clinically significant changes in safety laboratory tests, physical examinations, vital signs, or electrocardiograms (ECGs). [ Time Frame: Cohort 1 - 29 days; cohorts 2, 3, 6, and 7 - 57 days; cohorts 4, 5, 8, and 9 - 85 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • The number of subjects who develop anti-AMG 167 antibodies. [ Time Frame: Cohort 1 - 29 days; cohorts 2, 3, 6, and 7 - 57 days; cohorts 4, 5, 8, and 9 - 85 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic and phamacodynamic parameters [serum procollagen type 1 N-terminal propeptide (P1NP), BSAP, osteocalcin, sCTX, sclerostin levels, and bone mineral density (BMD) for higher dose levels] after single dose SC or IV administration of AMG 167. [ Time Frame: Cohort 1 - 29 days; cohorts 2, 3, 6, and 7 - 57 days; cohorts 4, 5, 8, and 9 - 85 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 69
Study Start Date: May 2009
Study Completion Date: November 2009
Primary Completion Date: November 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: B
Six female subjects in each of cohorts 1 to 5 will receive AMG 167; six male subjects in each of cohorts 6 and 8; three female subjects in each of cohorts 7 and 9.
Drug: Placebo
Subjects will be randomized to receive 1 of 5 doses of AMG 167 or equivalent volume of placebo administered as a single dose. Postmenopausal women will receive AMG 167 in fixed doses of 21 mg, 70, 210, 350, or 700 mg SC (under the skin), or 70 mg or 350 mg IV (in the vein), while men will receive doses of 70 mg or 350 mg SC or IV.
Placebo Comparator: A
Two female subjects in each of cohorts 1 to 5 will receive placebo; two male subjects in each of cohorts 6 and 8; and 1 female subject in each of cohorts 7 and 9.
Drug: AMG 167
Subjects will be randomized to receive 1 of 5 doses of AMG 167 or equivalent volume of placebo administered as a single dose. Postmenopausal women will receive AMG 167 in fixed doses of 21 mg, 70, 210, 350, or 700 mg SC (under the skin), or 70 mg or 350 mg IV (in the vein), while men will receive doses of 70 mg or 350 mg SC or IV.
