Further study details as provided by Evgen Pharma:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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:
  • 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).

  4. Subjects should not donate sperm from the time of the first administration of treatment or study medication until 3 months following administration of the last treatment or dose of study medication.
  5. Subjects must be capable of understanding and complying with the requirements of the protocol and must have signed the ICF prior to undergoing any study-related procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

  2. Subject has a clinically significant disease or any condition or disease that might affect drug absorption, distribution or excretion.
  3. Any clinically significant abnormal laboratory, vital signs or other safety findings as determined by medical history, physical examination or other evaluations conducted at screening or on admission.
  4. ECG abnormalities in the standard 12-lead ECG (at screening) which in the opinion of the Investigator is clinically relevant or will interfere with the ECG analysis.
  5. History or current evidence of any clinically relevant cardiovascular, pulmonary, hepatic, renal, gastrointestinal, haematological, endocrinological, metabolic, neurological, psychiatric, or other disease.
  6. Positive results in any of the serology tests for Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HbsAg), anti Hepatitis core antibody (anti HBc Ig G [and anti HBc IgM if IgG is positive], Hepatitis C virus antibodies (anti HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus HIV 1 and 2 antibodies (anti HIV 1/2).
  7. Confirmed positive results from urine drug screen (amphetamines, benzodiazepines, cocaine, cannabinoids, opiates, barbiturates, tricyclic antidepressants and methadone) or from the alcohol breath test at screening and on admission (Day -1).
  8. History or clinical evidence of alcohol or drug abuse.
