Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : June 7, 2013
Last Update Posted : December 10, 2014

Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of ARC-520 in normal, adult volunteers.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: ARC-520 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 54 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Dose-Escalating Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of ARC-520 in Normal Adult Volunteers
Study Start Date : July 2013
Actual Primary Completion Date : September 2014
Actual Study Completion Date : November 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ARC-520
Single dose, intravenous administration of ARC-520.
Drug: ARC-520
Placebo Comparator: Normal Saline
Single dose, intravenous administration of Normal Saline
Drug: Placebo

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine the incidence and frequency of adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability of ARC-520 [ Time Frame: One month ]
    The incidence and frequency of adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs), related AEs, related SAEs, and AEs leading to withdrawal, dose modification, or treatment discontinuation will be summarized by dose and treatment group.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate the pharmacokinetics of ARC-520 at different dose concentrations [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    Plasma concentrations following a single dose of ARC-520 at different dose levels will be used to calculate the following ARC-520 pharmacokinetic parameters: Cmax, tmax, AUC0-24, AUCinf, and t1/2. Descriptive statistics of pharmacokinetic parameters will include mean, standard deviation, and coefficient of variation.
