Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the safety and tolerability of SRT2379 (25, 75, 250, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000 mg/day [fasted] and 500 mg/day [fed]) in healthy male volunteers after single and multiple dose administration in the fasted and fed states. [ Time Frame: Single Dose Period PK samples will be collected on Day1 at 0h, 15min, 30min, 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 and 24hrs post-dose. Multiple Dose Period PK samples will be collected on Days1-6 at 0h only, and on Day7 at 0h, 15min, 30min, 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 and 24hrs post-dose. ]
  • To determine the pharmacokinetic profile of SRT2379 (25, 75, 250, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000 mg/day [fasted] and 500 mg/day [fed]) in healthy male volunteers after single and multiple dose administration in the fasted and fed states. [ Time Frame: AEs and clinically significant abnormal lab values will be recorded based upon Investigator observation and subject reporting. Safety will be monitored by AEs, VS, physical exam, labs and ECGs during the study. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To explore the effect of SRT2379 (25, 75, 250, 500, 1000, 2000, and 3000 mg/day [fasted] and 500 mg/day [fed]) on plasma concentrations of Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21). [ Time Frame: Biomarker samples for plasma FGF-21 analysis will be collected on Day1 (single dose period) and Day7 (multiple dose period) at 0h, 1h, 4h, 8h post-dose and 24hrs post-dose on Days2 (single dose period) and 8 (multiple dose period). ]

Detailed Description:

Prospective, single center, clinical study of SRT2379 administered orally. Randomized, placebo-controlled, single-blind, multiple-dose, dose-escalation inpatient/outpatient study to assess the safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of SRT2379 in healthy male volunteers. Approximately sixty-four (64) subjects aged 18-55, who fulfill the inclusion/exclusion criteria, will be enrolled in this study. Eight cohorts of eight subjects each will be examined. Subjects within each cohort will be randomized 6:2 to receive SRT2379 at one of seven escalating doses (A, B, C, D, E, F or G), likely to be 25, 75, 250, 500, 1000, 2000, and 3000 mg/day or placebo. All cohorts will be administered SRT2379 in the fasted state, with the exception of one cohort that will receive one of the stated doses of SRT2379 in the fed state (the dose of SRT2379 administered to subjects in the fed state is planned to be 500 mg, however this may be modified upwards or downwards following evaluation of safety and pharmacokinetic data from earlier cohorts. The fed cohort will be the final cohort dosed in the study.). Two subjects will be dosed on Day 1 of the single dose period with one subject receiving active treatment and one subject receiving placebo. The remainder of subjects within each cohort will be dosed on Day 2 of the single dose period with five subjects receiving active treatment and one subject receiving placebo, assuming that no safety issues arise in the two subjects dosed on Day 1. Subjects will remain on a fixed dose of test material for all dosing days in the study.

Each cohort of subjects will be dosed sequentially approximately three weeks apart for the single dose period, and return to the study unit approximately two weeks after their single dose administration to receive 7 consecutive days of dosing for the multiple-dose period. Each cohort of subjects in the multiple-dose period will be dosed sequentially, approximately, two weeks apart (from multiple dose period Day 7 of preceding cohort to multiple dose period Day 1 dose of the subsequent cohort), allowing for a comprehensive safety assessment prior to initiation of an escalated dose in a subsequent cohort.

Subjects will sign the informed consent form at the Screening Visit. If eligible and willing to participate, subjects will enter into the study. Subjects will have fasted for at least 10 hours overnight and be randomized to receive SRT2379 or placebo (test material). The subject cohort assigned to the fed dose will consume a standardized meal before receiving test material; all other subjects will receive test material in a fasted state. Subjects will be required to stay overnight at the study unit for two nights during the single dose period of the study and subsequently, for the duration of the seven-day multiple-dose period (8 consecutive overnight stays) to assess safety and to gather required PK samples. Subjects will be asked to return to the study center for an End of Study safety assessment approximately 1 week after the last administration of study drug during the multiple-dose period.

Dose escalation will be dependent on safety parameters (physical examination findings, vital signs, ECG studies, adverse events and laboratory values) and PK data.

  • Subject has participated in a clinical trial within the past three months.
  • Subject has a history of difficulty in donating blood or accessibility of veins in left or right arm.
  • Subject has donated blood (one unit or 350 mL) within three months prior to receiving test material.
  • Subject is taking herbal and dietary supplements or prescription drug therapy for which 5 times the half-life is longer than 21 days (i.e., the Screening period) prior to enrollment into the study. Please note: subjects must refrain from taking herbal or dietary supplements for the duration of the study.
