A First Time in Man Study to Asses the Safety and Tolerability of AZD7624 in Healthy Subjects

This study has been completed.

AstraZeneca Identifier:
First received: December 19, 2012
Last updated: April 1, 2015
Last verified: April 2015
This is a First in Human study to assess the safety and tolerability of AZD7624, following inhaled administration of single ascending doses in healthy male volunteers and female volunteers of non-child bearing potential. Pharmacokinetics (what the body does to the drug) and pharmacodynamic (what the drug does to the body) parameters will be also assessed as secondary objectives.

Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Drug: AZD7624
Drug: Placebo to match
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Double-blind Placebo-controlled, Randomised, Single Centre, First Time in Man Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Single Ascending Inhaled Doses of AZD7624 in Healthy Subjects

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety variables (adverse events, vital signs, body temperature, ECGs, clinical laboratory safety tests and spirometry) [ Time Frame: up to 55 days. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics of AZD7624 and assess dose proportionality of the pharmacokinetics following single ascending doses of AZD7624 by assessment of Cmax, t1/2, AUC and CL/F. [ Time Frame: Day 1 pre-dose, 5min, 15min, 30min, 1h, 2h, 4h, 6h, 9h,12h, 18h, 24h, 36h, 48h, 56h post dose ]
  • Pharmacokinetics of single doses of AZD7624 using the following urine PK parameters: Ae and CLR [ Time Frame: Day 1: during 0-6, 6-12, 12-24 and 24-48 hours post dose. ]

Enrollment: 57
Study Start Date: January 2013
Study Completion Date: August 2013
Primary Completion Date: August 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
