Last verified: July 2010
The main purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of AZD5847 after receiving oral doses on a single day (Part A) or after receiving a single oral dose in two periods (Part B). For volunteers in Part B, the effect of food on the PK of AZD5847 will also be studied. Another purpose is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of AZD5847 and its metabolites in blood and urine.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: AZD5847
Drug: Placebo to AZD5847
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Phase-1, Single Center, Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Parallel-group Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics (Including Food Effect) of Ascending Oral Doses of AZD5847 in Healthy Male Subjects and Female Subjects of Non-childbearing Potential

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of AZD5847 administered orally will be assessed by incidence and severity of AE's, abnormalities in vital sign assessments, ECG's, telemetry, clinical laboratory assessments, physical exams and withdrawals [ Time Frame: Safety assessments are taken prior to and after drug administration. Volunteers will be monitored througout the study for adverse events. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the pharmacokinetics of AZD5847 in blood and urine following oral doses. [ Time Frame: Samples taken during the residential period at defined timepoints pre-dose and post-dose. ]
  • To assess the effect of food on the pharmacokinetics of AZD5847 following oral administration of AZD5847 [ Time Frame: Samples taken during the residential period at defined timepoints pre-dose and post-dose ]

Enrollment: 64
