Brief Summary:
This study assesses the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of ASP1941 orally administered as single doses to healthy adult male Taiwanese subjects.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Pharmacokinetics of ASP1941 Drug: ASP1941 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The subjects will be administered a single dose of ASP1941 or placebo under fasting condition. Plasma and urine levels of ASP1941 and glucose will be measured to investigate pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of ASP1941.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 56 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
