Drug: Abatacept
Phase 1

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

Further study details as provided by Bristol-Myers Squibb:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Single-dose pharmacokinetic parameters: Cmax (Maximum observed serum concentration) [ Time Frame: Over 71 days after single dose administered ]
  • Single-dose pharmacokinetic parameters: AUC 0-71 days (Area under the serum concentration-time curve from time zero to 71 days) [ Time Frame: Over 71 days after single dose administered ]
  • Single-dose pharmacokinetic parameters: AUC (INF) (Area under the serum concentration-time curve from time zero extrapolated to infinity) [ Time Frame: Over 71 days after single dose administered ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity determination will be based on titers of anti abatacept and anti-CTLA-4-T antibodies in serum over time [ Time Frame: Days 29, 57, and 71 after single dose administered ]
  • Safety assessments: adverse events, vital sign measurements, ECGs, physical examinations, and clinical laboratory tests. The incidence of observed adverse events will be tabulated and reviewed for potential significance and clinical importance [ Time Frame: Days 1, 2, 4, 8, 15, 22, 29, 43, 57 and 71 after single dose administration ]
