Study to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of Single Doses of AZD8566.

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
AstraZeneca Identifier:
First received: September 5, 2008
Last updated: April 29, 2009
Last verified: April 2009
The purpose of this study is to determine how well tolerated and safe AZD8566 is at different dose levels. This study will also determine how AZD8566 is distributed around the body and how it leaves the body.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Volunteer Drug: AZD8566 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Phase I, Randomised, Double Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of Single Oral Doses of AZD8566 in Healthy Volunteers

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic profile: concentration of AZD8566 in blood [ Time Frame: Samples taken during Visit 2 (residential period) at up to 16 defined timepoints pre-dose and post- dose ]
  • Safety and tolerability of AZD8566 by assessment of vital signs, laboratory variables, ECG and adverse events [ Time Frame: Assessments taken at Visit 1 (enrolment), defined timepoints pre-dose and post-dose during Visit 2 (residential period) and at Visit 3 (follow up). Volunteers will be monitored throughout the study from Visit 1 to Visit 3 for adverse events. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic profile: concentration of AZD8566 in urine [ Time Frame: Samples collected over 48 hours from pre-dose to 48 hours post-dose. ]

Estimated Enrollment: 108
