Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to establish the safety of CD-NP in normal human volunteers.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Heart Failure, Congestive Drug: CD-NP Phase 1

Detailed Description:

The study will be conducted in two phases. The first phase, “ascending dose phase”, will be an open-label study in cohorts of four (4) subjects (entered two subjects at a time) with the primary objective of establishing the safety of CD-NP. The second phase, “MTD confirmation phase”, will be conducted under randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled conditions in a larger cohort of subjects (10 subjects). The primary objective of this phase will be to confirm the safety and pharmacodynamic findings at the apparent MTD.

Secondary objectives include evaluation of the effect of CD-NP on: mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR), urinary sodium and potassium excretion (UNaV and UKV, respectively), urinary flow rate (UV), and creatinine clearance. Plasma concentrations of CD-NP, angiotensin II, and aldosterone, and the urinary excretion rates of cGMP and CD-NP will also be determined.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Known hypersensitivity or allergy to CD-NP or its components, nesiritide, other natriuretic peptides, or related compounds
  • Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • Any disease or condition (medical or surgical) which, in the opinion of the investigator, might compromise the hematologic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal, gastrointestinal, hepatic, or central nervous system; or other conditions that may interfere with the absorption, distribution, metabolism or excretion of study drug, or would place the subject at increased risk

This exclusion is extended to 4 weeks for any drugs known to induce or inhibit hepatic drug metabolism. Use of NSAIDs, sulfonamides, probenecid or other drugs known to alter renal or tubular function is specifically prohibited for at least 5 half-lives prior to the first dose of any study related treatment.
  • Consumption of alcohol within 48 hours prior to dose administration or during any in-patient period.
  • A positive urine drug screen including ethanol, cocaine, THC, barbiturates, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, and opiates.
  • A history (within the last 2 years) of alcohol abuse, illicit drug use, significant mental illness, physical dependence to any opioid, or any history of drug abuse or addiction.
