Official Title: A Phase 1, Single Centre, Single-Blind, Randomised, Placebo-controlled, Parallel-group Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Oral AZD7687 After Administration of Multiple Ascending Doses in Overweight to Obese But Otherwise Healthy Male Subjects

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety variables (adverse events, vital signs, physical examination, telemetry, digital electrocardiograms (dECGs), safety 12-lead paper electrocardiograms (pECG), and clinical laboratory assessments) [ Time Frame: Before, during and after dosing. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

  • Pharmacodynamic Biomarker sampling: (Triacylglycerol in serum, triacylglycerol, diacylglycerol, insulin and free fatty acids in plasma. Triacylglycerol and diacylglycerol in adipose tissue) [ Time Frame: Information will be collected from the time of day -2 throughout the study. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Genetic: Blood sampling at one occasion during the study. [ Time Frame: Once during study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
