Assessment of the Safety of ABT-308 in Healthy Volunteers and Subjects With Asthma

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Abbott Identifier:
First received: September 25, 2009
Last updated: April 12, 2011
Last verified: March 2011
The primary purpose of this study is to determine the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of ABT-308 in healthy volunteers and patients with mild to moderate controlled asthma.

Condition Intervention Phase
Asthma Drug: ABT-308 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Further study details as provided by Abbott:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability will be determined by evaluation of adverse events, vital sign monitoring, physical examination, electrocardiograms, lung function and laboratory assessments. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks after last dose ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics will be determined by measuring serum concentration of ABT-308. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks after last dose ]
  • Immunogenicity will be determined by measuring serum concentrations of anti-ABT-308 antibodies. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks after last dose ]

Estimated Enrollment: 47
Study Start Date: October 2009
Primary Completion Date: July 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
