Research Into the Effect of a Clot-dissolving Agent and Its Inhibitor
Single-chain urokinase-type plasminogen activator (pro-urokinase) is a highly effective thrombolytic drug. At pharmacologic concentrations however, pro-urokinase is converted to urokinase - a non specific thrombolytic, limiting its therapeutic use. Mutant pro-urokinase (M5) is more stable and its conversion to urokinase is inhibited by C1-inhibitor.
The primary objectives of the study are:
- To assess the overall safety and tolerability related to systemic plasminogen activation of single doses of M5 over a wide dose range (study part I).
- To assess the effect of single doses of C1-inhibitor on the overall safety and tolerability of single doses of M5 and its effect on M5-induced coagulation changes (study part II).
