The purpose of this exploratory first-in-human study is to evaluate the amount of GLPG0974 present in the blood (pharmacokinetics) after single oral doses of GLPG0974 given to healthy subjects.

Furthermore, during the course of the study, safety and tolerability as well as the effects of GLPG0974 on mechanism of action-related parameters in the blood (pharmacodynamics) will be characterized compared to placebo.

Official Title: Exploratory Double-blind Placebo-controlled Study for the Assessment of Pharmacokinetics (PK), Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacodynamics (PD) of Single Ascending Oral Doses of GLPG0974 in Healthy Subjects

Further study details as provided by Galapagos NV:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The amount of GLPG0974 in plasma over time after a single oral dose [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To characterize the amount of GLPG0974 in plasma over time - pharmacokinetics (PK) - after a single oral dose in healthy subjects

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of GLPG0974 in comparison with placebo after a single oral dose in healthy subjects in terms of adverse events, physical examinations, vital signs, ECG and lab assessments

  • Inhibition of CD11b on neutrophils in blood after a single oral dose of GLPG0974 [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To characterize the pharmacodynamics (PD) of GLPG0974 by means of inhibition of expression of CD11b on neutrophils after a single oral dose in healthy subjects
