Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Calculation of concentration-time data [ Time Frame: Day 1 through end of treatment (Day 150) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    For both Part A and Part B:

    • pharmacokinetic parameters
    • adverse events (AEs)
    • laboratory values
    • physical examination and vital sign findings
    • summary statistics

    For Part B, patients with culture-proven V. cholerae O1 infection will be evaluated independently of those with a negative culture. Those who are culture negative for V. cholerae but have received iOWH032 will remain in the study and the same protocol will be followed for their management including the follow up visit.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 7 days after receipt of the single dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The safety and tolerability endpoint for this study is adverse events (AEs). All participants and patients receiving investigational product (iOWH032) will be included in the safety analysis. Laboratory values, physical examinations and vital signs will be summarized over time and treatment group using the descriptive statistics and plots.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Males / Females (Healthy)
Part A: This initial part of the study will be conducted in adult Bangladeshi healthy volunteers (4 males, 4 females) to assess the pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of single doses of iOWH032. Participants will be admitted to the Clinical Trial Unit (CTU) of icddr,b (located at a 10 minute drive from the icddr,b main campus) the day prior to dosing and remain for 48 hours after dosing, unless treatment and/or follow-up of an adverse event (AE) require longer in-unit observation or treatment.
Drug: iOWH032

Part A: Participants will be randomized at a 3:1 ratio to receive treatment with iOWH032 or placebo. A randomisation code will be generated. Each participant will be assigned the next participant number available and thereby will be assigned randomly. Active treatment will consist of an oral tablet containing 300 mg of iOWH032. The placebo will consist of identical looking tablets.

Part B: There will be no randomization during this trial. All eligible patients will receive 300 mg of iOWH032.

Males (Patient)
Part B: Patients will be eligible for the study if they have clinically severe dehydration and meet all other inclusion and exclusion criteria. Upon signing consent, they will be admitted to the Research Ward of the Dhaka Hospital of icddr,b.
Drug: iOWH032

Part A: Participants will be randomized at a 3:1 ratio to receive treatment with iOWH032 or placebo. A randomisation code will be generated. Each participant will be assigned the next participant number available and thereby will be assigned randomly. Active treatment will consist of an oral tablet containing 300 mg of iOWH032. The placebo will consist of identical looking tablets.

Part B: There will be no randomization during this trial. All eligible patients will receive 300 mg of iOWH032.


Detailed Description:

This study will be conducted in two parts.

The first part (Part A) will evaluate the pharmacokinetics, safety and tolerability of iOWH032 in healthy, adult Bangladeshi volunteers.

The second part (Part B) will evaluate the pharmacokinetics, safety and tolerability of iOWH032 in adult Bangladeshi patients with cholera. While female participants will be included in Part A, only male patients will be enrolled in Part B. The rationale for excluding women in Part B is the difficulty in separating urine from stool in severely dehydrated females with rapid rates of purging. Moreover, it has been difficult to retain adult females in the hospital after improvement of their diarrhoea because of their household responsibilities, which might impact compliance in this small study. Further, no sex differences in the pharmacokinetics of iOWH032 were found in the study conducted in healthy subjects in the US, which included 42 males and females, nor have sex differnces been observed in preclinical studies.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 64 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

INCLUSION CRITERIA - Part A:

An individual will be considered eligible for participation in the trial if the following inclusion criteria are satisfied:

  1. Male or female between 18 and 55 years, inclusive;
  2. Female participants are non-pregnant and non-lactating. Female participants of childbearing potential (including perimenopausal women who had menstrual bleeding within the past two years) must use appropriate birth control (abstinence and/or double barrier methods) for 30 days after dosing. Acceptable double barrier methods are the following forms of contraception: condom, contraceptive sponge, hormonal contraceptives, intrauterine devices, and diaphragm or cervical ring with spermicidal gel or foam. Women are considered to be not of childbearing potential if they have been surgically sterilized (physician-documented hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy or bilateral tubal ligation). All female participants must have a negative pregnancy test at screening and on admission to the CTU.
  3. Written informed consent for participation in the study.
