Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to day 15 ]
    All Adverse events occuring from consent until subject completion will be reviewed at each clinic visit. Subjects will be questioned regarding any events that may have occured between clinic vists.

Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: July 2011
Study Completion Date: October 2011
Primary Completion Date: October 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: HF1020 Drug: HF1020
Single doses at 0.5 mg capsules, 2.5 mg capsules, 10 mg capsules, and 25 mg capsules in each of cohorts 1, 2, 3 and 4 respectively.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo Drug: HF1020 placebo
Single dose: HF1020 placebo capsule

Detailed Description:

This is a single-centre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, ascending dose study.

Male subjects will be randomised to give a total of 32 evaluable subjects.

Subjects will be sequentially enrolled into 4 cohorts of ascending dose.

Subjects in Cohort 1 will be randomised to receive 0.5 milligrams (mg) HF1020 or placebo (ratio 3:1). When at least 8 subjects within the cohort have completed Day 2 procedures (i.e. Day 1 + 24 hours) and all ongoing subjects have completed the final Day 15 visit, a Safety Review Committee (SRC) will meet, review all safety data prior to dose escalation to the next cohort.

Subjects in Cohort 2 will be randomised to receive 2.5 mg HF1020 or placebo.

Subjects in Cohort 3 will be randomised to receive 10mg HF1020 or placebo.

Subjects in Cohort 4 will be randomised to receive 25mg HF1020 or placebo.
