Study to Investigate Safety and Tolerability Single Ascending Doses of AZD4017

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
AstraZeneca Identifier:
First received: November 12, 2008
Last updated: June 15, 2009
Last verified: June 2009
The primary aim of this study is to investigate the safety and tolerabilty of AZD4017 when given as single oral ascending doses to healthy volunters. This will be done by comparing the effect of AZD4017 to placebo. The study will aslo investigate the absorption, distrubution and disappearance of AZD4017 in the body. Information about plasma concentrations of AZD4017 vs time after dose intake will also be collected. The future indication for AZD4017 is planned to be Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Drug: AZD4017 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Official Title: A Randomized, Single-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Single-Centre, Phase 1Study in Healthy Volunteers to Assess the Safety, Tolerability andPharmacokinetics of AZD4017 After Single Ascending Oral Doses

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and Tolerability (Adverse events, vital signs, ECGs, physical examination, laboratoryvariables [ Time Frame: The variables will be measure predose and the repeatedly during the following 47 hours after dosing ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax), time to Cmax (tmax), terminal half-life, area under the plasma concentration-time curve and the apparent oral plasma clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: Blood samples for determination of AZD4017 concenration will be taken predose and repeatedly during the 47 hours post dose ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40
