Brief Summary:
This study will be a phase I, first time in human (FiH), randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled, SAD study in male patients with T2DM, performed at a single study center. The study will consist of 2 parts, (A and B) up to 60 male patients with T2DM aged 18 to 65 years will be included

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Male Subjects With Type II Diabetes (T2DM) Drug: AZD8601+Placebo (SAD) Drug: AZD8601+Placebo Drug: Placebo+Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Part A will assess the safety and tolerability of SAD of intradermal (ID) injection of AZD8601 (modified VEGF-A RNA) and Part B will evaluate the pharmacodynamic effects of ID injection of AZD8601 in forearm skin. AZD8601 is a VEGF-A modified RNA under development as a novel modality for local production of human VEGF-A protein and is developed for the treatment of diabetic patients with ulcers. Each patient in Part A will be involved in the study for 7 to 8 weeks. Each patient in Part B will be involved in the study for 5 to 6 weeks.

Safety and tolerability variables includes Adverse events (AEs), Vital signs (BP, pulse), ECG, Hematology, Clinical chemistry, Urinalysis.

The study will include patients with T2DM that are on stable doses of 1 to 2 anti-diabetic medications. The T2DM patients may also be on medications for comorbidities such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, hyperuricemia, thyroid disorders, benign prostate hyperplasia etc. (e.g. diuretics, statins, allopurinol, thyroxin), but must be healthy otherwise.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Part A
Three cohorts with 9 subjects and each cohort received 2 treatments (AZD8601+Placebo/ Placebo+Placebo)
Drug: AZD8601+Placebo (SAD)

Six subjects are randomized to receive one treatment of AZD8601 and one treatment of Placebo.

Single ascending dose (SAD) with a sequential cohort design and three dose levels of AZD8601 are planned to be investigated. Subjects will receive 0.004 mg per injection of AZD8601/placebo with a total proposed dose of 0.024 mg.


Drug: Placebo+Placebo
Subjects are randomized to receive 2 placebo treatments.

Experimental: Part B
Subjects received 2 treatments (AZD8601+Placebo)
Drug: AZD8601+Placebo
Subjects will receive dose with sufficient vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A protein production and a good safety profile as determined in Part A and the total dose per patient will not exceed the maximum dose given in Part A.
