This is a single-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, ascending single-dose study of VIA-3196 to evaluate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of VIA-3196 in Healthy Subjects. Study dosing is organized into cohorts corresponding to escalating doses of VIA-3196 or matching placebo.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug Safety Drug: Placebo Drug: VIA-3196 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-Controlled, Ascending Single-Dose Study to Evaluate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of VIA-3196 in Healthy Subjects

Further study details as provided by Madrigal Pharmaceuticals, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Adverse Events as a measure of safety and tolerability of VIA-3196 [ Time Frame: up to 12 days ]
    Evaluation will start from predose (Day -1) until the follow-up visit (Day 7 to 11)

Secondary Outcome Measures:

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 55 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The subject must be willing and able to provide written informed consent.
  • Healthy, non-smoking, males and females between the ages of 18 and 55 years of age (inclusive).
  • If female, the subject is of non-child bearing potential (i.e., surgically [bilateral oophorectomy, hysterectomy, or tubal ligation] or naturally sterile [>12 consecutive months without menses]). Verify by FSH at screening as appropriate.
  • Body weight > 50 kg and BMI between 18 and 30 kg/m2 (inclusive).
  • LDL cholesterol > 85 mg/dL.
  • No clinically significant abnormal findings on blood pressure, heart rate, physical examination, clinical laboratory tests or 12-lead ECG.

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of thyroid disorder or abnormal thyroid function tests at screening. Repeat testing is allowed at the discretion of the Investigator.
  • History of unexplained syncope.
  • History of hepatobiliary disease; or AST, ALT or direct bilirubin greater than the upper limit of reference range at screening.
  • Positive screening test for HIV antibody, Hepatitis B surface antigen or Hepatitis C antibody.
  • Abnormal screening ECG: including machine-read QTc >450 msec, QRS >110 msec, intermittent bundle branch block, frequent premature atrial or premature ventricular contractions, or any rhythm other than normal sinus rhythm which is interpreted by the Investigator to be clinically significant.
  • History of sensitivity to a similar study drug (e.g., Karo Bio KB2115 or Metabasis MB7811), or a history of important drug or other allergy (except for untreated, asymptomatic seasonal allergies at time of dosing).
  • Sensitivity to thyroid medication.
  • History of asthma, or intolerance to beta-blockers.
  • Use of acetaminophen within 7 days before dosing and throughout the study.
  • History of regular use of tobacco or nicotine containing products within the past 6 months.
  • Positive urine drug screen or alcohol test at screening.
