• To compare the safety profile of a single intravenous administration of AVP-21D9 as compared with Placebo


  • To evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of a single intravenous administration of AVP-21D9
  • To evaluate the immunogenicity of AVP-21D9

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment

Further study details as provided by Emergent BioSolutions:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety assessments [ Time Frame: 90 days following infusion ]
    Safety will be assessed by collecting data (physical exams, adverse event reporting, lab testing/analysis) and concomitant medications at each visit from pre-infusion period through post-infusion day 90 or the early withdrawl visit, if applicable.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics (PK) analysis [ Time Frame: 90 days following infusion ]
    PK parameters will be determined for a single intravenous administration of AVP-21D9 as measured by an immunoassay for AVP-21D9.

  • Immunogenicity analysis [ Time Frame: From day 1 up to day 90 following infusion ]
    Immunogenicity will be measured by blood testing/analysis on anti-AVP-21D9 antibody generation

Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: August 2010
