Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1, first time in human study enrolling approximately 33 healthy adult subjects (18-65 yrs) from one study site. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and PK of MEDI4893 in healthy adult volunteers administered as a single IV dose compared with placebo, across 4 cohorts. The 4 dose cohorts will enroll sequentially. Subjects will be followed for safety from the time of Informed Consent through 360 days post dose.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Staphylococcus Aureus Drug: Placebo Drug: MEDI4893 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is a phase 1, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalation study to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of MEDI4893, an extended half-life human monoclonal antibody against Staphylococcus aureus alpha toxin, in healthy adult subjects. Approximately 33 subjects will be enrolled across 4 fixed dose cohorts at 1 study site . This study will last approximately 389 days, constituting a screening period of up to 28 days, 1 day of investigational product administration, and a 360 day safety follow up period.
