This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Galapagos NV Identifier:
First received: May 20, 2010
Last updated: September 20, 2010
Last verified: September 2010

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of single ascending (SAD) oral dose of GLPG0492 compared to placebo in healthy subjects.

Also, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of GLPG0492 after single oral administration will be evaluated, and, if applicable, the maximum tolerated dose determined. Oral bioavailability (solution vs solid capsule fasting or fed) is evaluated in healthy elderly subjects.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: GLPG0492
Drug: placebo
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Official Title: Double Blind Placebo Controlled Dose Ranging Study for the Assessment of Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of Single Ascending Oral Doses of GLPG0492 in Healthy Subjects and Open Relative Bioavailability Study of Oral Solution Versus Solid Formulation, Fasted and Fed, in Elderly Subjects

Further study details as provided by Galapagos NV:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of single ascending doses in healthy young and elderly subjects. [ Time Frame: up to 10 days postdose ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics of single oral doses (solution) in young and elderly subjects. [ Time Frame: up to 10 days postdose ]
  • Determine oral bioavailability of GLPG0492 given to elderly subjects as oral solution or solid dosage form with or without food. [ Time Frame: up to 10 days postdose ]
  • Determine the maximum tolerated dose in young subjects. [ Time Frame: Up to 10 days postdose ]
