Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Multiple Oral Doses of GLPG0634 in Healthy Subjects

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Galapagos NV Identifier:
First received: August 17, 2011
Last updated: August 14, 2012
Last verified: August 2012

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of multiple ascending oral doses of GLPG0634 given to healthy subjects for 10 days compared to placebo.

During the course of the study, the amount of GLPG0634 present in the blood (pharmacokinetics) as well as the effects of GLPG0634 on mechanism of action-related parameters in the blood (pharmacodynamics) will be characterized.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Drug: GLPG0634 Drug: Placebo 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: Double-blind Placebo Controlled Dose-ranging Study for the Assessment of Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of Multiple Oral Dosing of GLPG0634 in Healthy Subjects

Further study details as provided by Galapagos NV:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: From screening up to 10 days after the last dose ]
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of GLPG0634 in comparison with placebo after multiple oral doses in healthy subjects in terms of adverse events, physical examinations, vital signs, ECG and lab assessments

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) [ Time Frame: From first dose up to 10 days after the last dose ]
    To determine the plasma levels of GLPG0634 as a measure of PK and the levels of immune- and inflammation-related parameters as a measure of PD
