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 golimumab (Simponi). The study population will consist of 24 healthy male participants in China. Subjects will receive a single dose of either 50 mg or 100 mg golimumab. Subjects will be in the study for up to 14 weeks. Safety assessments will be performed throughout the study and include obtaining and evaluating laboratory tests, vital signs (eg, blood pressure), and the occurrence and severity of adverse events. A single dose of 50 mg or 100 mg golimumab as a subcutaneous injection.
