Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine what the body does to ustekinumab (pharmacokinetics) in Chinese Male participants. [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of ustekinumab by evaluating laboratory tests, vital signs (e.g., blood pressure), and the occurrence and severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 001
ustekinumab Single dose of 45 mg subcutaneous injection
Drug: ustekinumab
Single dose of 45 mg subcutaneous injection
Experimental: 002
ustekinumab Single dose of 90 mg subcutaneous injection

Detailed Description:
This is a randomized (study medication assigned by chance), open-label (both the physician and subject know the assigned study medication) study to assess the safety, tolerability, immune response, pharmacokinetics (what the body does to the drug), of ustekinumab (Stelara). The study population will consist of 24 healthy male participants in China. Participants will receive a single dose of either 45mg or 90 mg ustekinumab. Participants will be in the study for up to 16 weeks. Safety assessments will be performed throughout the study and include obtaining and evaluating laboratory tests, vital signs (e.g., blood pressure), and the occurrence and severity of adverse events. A single dose of 45 mg or 90 mg ustekinumab.
