The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and tolerability of ascending doses of SB 9200 given for up to 14 days to subjects with chronic Hepatitis C infection.
Hepatitis C Infection
Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Phase 1a/1b Multiple Ascending Dose Study to Assess the Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of SB 9200 in Treatment Naïve HCV Infected Adults
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Safety [ Time Frame: Up to 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Clinical safety data from 12-lead ECG, clinical laboratory tests, urinalysis, treatment-emergent adverse events, vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate).
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Pharmacokinetic profile of SB9200 [ Time Frame: Up to 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Pharmacokinetic parameters and the PK profile of SB 9200 at doses from 100 mg to 1500 mg given for up to 14 days to subjects with Hepatitis C.
- Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic relationship of SB9200 [ Time Frame: Up to 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Correlation between SB9200 exposure and Hepatitis C RNA level at doses from 100 mg to 1500 mg.
- Effect of food on exposure of SB 9200 [ Time Frame: Up to 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Comparison of exposure to SB9200 in fed and fasted states.
- Short Term Antiviral Efficacy [ Time Frame: Up to 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Short term antiviral efficacy of ascending doses of SB 9200 monotherapy given for up to 14 days to treatment naïve subjects with Hepatitis C.
- Viral Resistance [ Time Frame: Up to 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Viral resistance and describe any resistant mutants that appear during Investigational Product administration.
- IL28B Genotype [ Time Frame: Up to 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Association of IL28B genotype (CC, CT or TT) with virologic response to SB 9200 at the chosen dose.
Other Outcome Measures:
- Exploratory: IFN Expression and IFN pathways [ Time Frame: Up to 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Blood samples will be collected for potential exploratory evaluation of correlations between SB9200 dose and Interferon (IFN) expression, and induction of signalling proteins in IFN pathways such as Interferon Regulatory Factor (IRF)-3, IRF-7, Interferon Stimulated Gene 15 (ISG15) and Extra Erythrocytically expressed haemoglobin (EEEH) levels in plasma.

Experimental: Experimental Part A
Experimental: Part A: Part A will use a single ascending dose protocol in small, open-label cohorts to determine the starting dose for Part B in the potentially therapeutic range.
Part A open-label, single ascending doses of SB9200 from 100mg - 1500mg.
Experimental: Experimental Part B
Experimental: Part B: Part B will use a multiple ascending dose protocol to further explore the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of SB9200 over 7-14 days of dosing.
Intervention: SB9200 and Placebo
Part B randomised 6:2 (active:placebo) using recommended Part B starting dose, and ascending to up to 1500mg for 7-14 days of dosing.
Part B randomised 6:2 (active:placebo) using anhydrous lactose capsules identical to active comparator, minus active ingredient.
This is a First-in-human, Two-stage, Multi-centre study. Part A is an open-label, single ascending dose study in fed or fasted subjects and Part B is a randomized, placebo-controlled multiple ascending dose study. The study is designed to evaluate the safety and tolerability of ascending doses of SB 9200 given as monotherapy for up to 14 days to subjects with chronic Hepatitis C infection, and to determine the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic relationship over this dose range.
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years to 60 Years
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- Must provide written informed consent before any assessment is performed.
- Must be willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plan, laboratory tests, and other study procedures.
- Males or females of non-childbearing potential between the ages of 18 and 60 years, inclusive.
- Must have HCV and laboratory evidence of HCV infection for at least six months before the Screening Visit.
- Must have HCV-1 (1a or 1b or non-sub-typeable HCV-1), HCV-2 or HCV-3, as applicable for a given cohort.
- Subjects must have a plasma HCV RNA >5 log10 IU/mL (100,000 IU/mL).
- Must have fibrosis of Stage 2 or lower by Ishak or Metavir scoring system or equivalent as evidenced by a recent (within two years of screening) liver biopsy (i.e. no more than moderate fibrosis). If a recent liver biopsy is not available, Fibroscan of < 8.5 kilopascals at screening.
- Must have negative human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Hepatitis B screening test results.
- Must have a body mass index (BMI) of 18-32 kg/m2 (inclusive).
- Must have screening laboratory values within the reference ranges or if outside the normal range, not clinically significant as judged by the Investigator. ALT and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) must be within 2x the upper limit of normal.
- Must not consume grapefruit or grapefruit-related citrus fruits or juice from seven days prior to the first dose of study drug until collection of the final PK blood sample at 14 days after the last dose of study drug.
- Must be able to communicate with site personnel and understand instructions.
- Any previous treatment with an investigational or approved drug or drug regimen for the treatment of HCV. Note: SB 9200 is excluded from this criterion, i.e. subjects who complete Part A of the study will be eligible to participate in Part B of the study.
- History of hypersensitivity to any of the study drugs or to drugs of similar chemical classes.
- Use of nonprescription drugs, vitamins and dietary supplements within 14 days or five half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to the trial dose medication. Changes to prescription medication within 14 days prior to the first dose of study medication (i.e. only stable prescription medications are permitted whilst on study).

- Long QT syndrome or QTc > 450 msec for males and > 470 msec for females at screening or baseline.
- History of malignancy of any organ system (other than localized basal cell carcinoma of the skin), treated or untreated, within the past five years, regardless of whether there is evidence of local recurrence or metastases.
- Women of child-bearing potential.

- Prior liver biopsy (at any time in the past), indicating Stage 3 or higher fibrosis by Ishak or Metavir scoring system or equivalent (i.e. greater than moderate fibrosis).
- Any other cause of significant liver disease in addition to HCV, which may include, but is not limited to, malignancy with hepatic involvement, hepatitis B, drug or alcohol related cirrhosis, autoimmune hepatitis, hemochromatosis, Wilson's disease, or primary biliary cirrhosis.
- Evidence or history or clinically significant hematological, renal, endocrine, pulmonary, gastrointestinal cardiovascular, hepatic, psychiatric, neurologic, or allergic disease (including drug allergies, but excluding untreated, asymptomatic, seasonal allergies at time of dosing).
