A Study of the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of HMPL-523

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02105129
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : April 7, 2014
Last Update Posted : April 28, 2016

Hutchmed ( Hutchison Medipharma Limited )

Brief Summary:

The primary objective of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of a single dose of up to 800 mg in Part A (evaluated in planned steps of 5, 20, 50, 100, 200, 300 mg under fasted conditions, followed by 300, 400, 600 and 800 mg HMPL-523 under fed conditions of a standard meal, followed by multiple doses of 200, 300, 400 and 500 mg of HMPL-523 in Part B, in healthy male volunteers.

The secondary objective is to determine the pharmacokinetic profile of single (Part A) and multiple (Part B) oral doses of HMPL-523 in healthy male volunteers and to determine the preliminary effect of food (Part C)
