Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disease caused by a mutation in the gene that makes the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator protein. As a result mucus stagnation, obstruction and plugging take place in the respiratory and gastrointestinal tract, the biliary and pancreatic duct, and in the reproductive system. The objective of this study is to determine the safety and tolerability of 3 days of daily dosing of OligoG CF-5/20 versus placebo in healthy volunteers.

Condition Intervention Phase
Cystic Fibrosis
Drug: OligoG CF-5/20
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Dose-escalation Phase I Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of Inhaled Aerosolised OligoG CF-5/20 (G-block Oligosaccharide Derived From Alginate Polysaccharide) in Healthy Volunteers
