Brief Summary:
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of escalating, single subcutaneous doses of MEDI7734 in adult subjects with type I interferon-mediated autoimmune diseases.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Dermatomyositis, Polymyositis, Sjogren's, SLE, SSc Biological: MEDI7734 Biological: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

MEDI7734 is a human monoclonal antibody that binds to and causes temporary depletion of plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs), a type of white blood cell. The objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety, drug levels, and pDC levels in subjects who are given a single injection of MEDI7734 or a placebo.

The study will be conducted in subjects with at least one of the five following autoimmune diseases: dermatomyositis, polymyositis, Sjogren's syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus, or systemic sclerosis.

After a screening period, subjects will be randomized in a 3:1 ratio to receive a single dose of MEDI7734 or matching placebo, administered as a subcutaneous (under the skin) injection. After that, subjects will be evaluated periodically at the study site over at least the next 85 days.

Biological: Placebo
One subject (cohort 1) and two subjects (cohort 2-5) will receive placebo, for a total of 9 subjects.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Day 85 ]
    The safety and tolerability of MEDI7734 as measured by the incidence of any adverse events that occur on or after the day of administration of investigational product through the end of follow-up. Laboratory measurements, vital sign measurements, and electrocardiogram (ECG) parameters will also be evaluated as part of safety.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Anti-drug antibodies [ Time Frame: Day 85 ]
    Presence of anti-drug antibodies (ADA)

  2. Pharmacokinetics Cmax [ Time Frame: Day 85 ]
    Maximum concentration of drug achieved

  3. Pharmacokinetics Tmax [ Time Frame: Day 85 ]
    Time at which maximum concentration of drug is achieved

  4. Pharmacokinetic [ Time Frame: Day 85 ]
    Half Life

  5. Pharmacokinetic [ Time Frame: Day 85 ]

  6. Pharmacodynamics [ Time Frame: Day 85 ]
    Blood levels of plasmacytoid cells.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Type I Interferon signature [ Time Frame: Day 85 ]
    Neutralization ratio of the type I IFN signature
