Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: alpha-cyclodextrin
A placebo comparator composed of the same acid resistant HPMC capsules filled with 300mg of alpha cyclodextrin
Drug: alpha-cyclodextrin
Experimental: Sulforadex
100mg or 300mg size 00 acid resistant HPMC capsules
Drug: Sulforadex
Other Name: Stabilised sulforaphane

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with adverse events [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    Safety assessments will include standard laboratory safety tests (haematology, biochemistry, coagulation and urinalysis), vital signs, physical examinations, 12-lead ECG, telemetry and AE monitoring.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) of sulforaphane [ Time Frame: time 0, 30 min 1 2 4 8 12 & 24 hrs post dose on days 1,2 & 7 ]

    Plasma sulforaphane concentrations will be measured by LCMS/MS assay.

    • Area under the plasma concentration-time curve from zero to time t of the last measured concentration above the limit of quantification (AUC0-t).
