Drug: YH14618
Drug: Placebo
Phase 1
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Double-blind, Randomized, Parallel, Placebo Controlled, Phase I/II Clinical Trial to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of YH14618 Following Single Intradiscal Injection in Patients With Degenerative Disc Disease

Further study details as provided by Yuhan Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaulate the safety and tolerability after single intradiscal administation [ Time Frame: 12 weeks of observational period ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Safety outcomes

    • Adverse events
    • 12-lead EKG
    • Physical examination
    • Standard lab results(hematology, blood chemistry, coagulation, urinalysis etc.)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in disc height index at 12 week [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline in magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) index [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from oswestry diability index(ODI) at week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline in visual analogue scale(VAS) at week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
