AZD8683 Single Ascending Dose Study

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
AstraZeneca Identifier:
First received: September 17, 2009
Last updated: March 1, 2010
Last verified: March 2010
The aim of the study is to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of AZD8683 following single ascending dose administrations in healthy male subjects.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Volunteers
Drug: AZD8683
Drug: Placebo
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Phase I, Single Centre, Double-blind, Randomised, Placebo-controlled, Parallel-group Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of Inhaled AZD8683 After Single Ascending Doses in Healthy Male Subjects

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety variables (ECG, adverse events, blood pressure, pulse, body temp, safety lab) [ Time Frame: Frequent sampling occasions during study days, before and up to 48 h after dosing, and at a follow-up visit 7-13 days after dosing. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics: Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax), time to Cmax (tmax), terminal rate constant (λz), terminal half-life (t½λz) [ Time Frame: Frequent sampling occasions during study days, before and up to 48 h after dosing. ]
  • Pharmacokinetics: Area under the plasma concentration-time curve from zero to the time of the last measurable concentration (AUC(0-t)) and from zero to infinity (AUC), apparent plasma clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: Frequent sampling occasions during study days, before and up to 48 h after dosing. ]
  • Pharmacokinetics: Apparent volume of distribution during terminal phase (Vz/F), mean residence time (MRT), amount of drug excreted unchanged (Ae; % dose), and renal clearance (CLR). [ Time Frame: Frequent sampling occasions during study days, before and up to 48 h after dosing. ]
  • Pharmacodynamics: Lung function by spirometry (forced expiratory volume in the first second [FEV1] and forced vital capacity [FVC]), blood pressure, pulse, QTc, and heart rate. [ Time Frame: Frequent sampling occasions during study days, before and up to 48 h after dosing. ]
