  Purpose

The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a range of single intravenous (IV) and subcutaneous (SC) doses of BG00010 in healthy volunteers, and a range of multiple SC doses of BG00010 in participants with painful lumbar radiculopathy. Secondary objectives of this study are to determine the single IV and SC dose pharmacokinetics (PK) profile of BG00010 in healthy volunteers including assessment of bioavailability by comparing SC exposure to IV exposure in each participant, to determine the multiple SC dose PK profiles of BG00010 in participants with painful lumbar radiculopathy, to assess the single IV and SC dose immunogenicity of BG00010 in healthy volunteers, to assess the multiple SC dose immunogenicity of BG00010 in participants with painful lumbar radiculopathy, and to assess the potential of BG00010 to reduce pain following multiple SC administrations in participants with painful lumbar radiculopathy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The number of participants with Adverse Events (AEs)/Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to Day 75 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum observed concentration (Cmax) of BG00010 [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and up to 24 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to maximum serum concentration (Tmax) of BG00010 [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and up to 24 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Half life (t1/2) of BG00010 [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and up to 24 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Area under the serum concentration time curve (AUC) from zero to infinity AUC(0-∞) for BG00010 [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and up to 24 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Subcutaneous (SC) bioavailability [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and up to 24 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of participants with anti-BG00010 antibodies in serum [ Time Frame: Up to Day 75 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pain as measured by an 11-point numeric rating scale (NRS) [ Time Frame: Up to Day 75 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Numeric Rating Scale (NRS-11) is an 11-point scale for patient self-reporting of pain. The scale ranges from 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst pain imaginable).

  • Pain as measured by short form McGill pain questionnaire (SF-MPQ) visual analog scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: Up to Day 75 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A 10 cm visual analog scale ranging from 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain).
