Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of single and multiple intravenous doses of SPR741 when administered to healthy adult volunteers.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Volunteers Drug: SPR741 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This Phase 1 First in Human study is designed to assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of single and multiple intravenous doses of SPR741 when administered to healthy adult volunteers. This is a double-blind, placebo controlled, ascending dose, multi-cohort trial. A total of ninety-six healthy volunteers will be enrolled in 12 cohorts. The study will be conducted in two phases: a single ascending dose (SAD) phase, followed by a multiple ascending dose (MAD) phase. In SAD, participants will receive one dose of SPR741 or placebo. In MAD, participants will receive multiple doses of SPR741 or placebo for 14 consecutive days. In both parts, sequential cohorts will be exposed to increasing doses of SPR741.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Two-part, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Phase I Study of the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of Single and Multiple Ascending Doses of SPR741 in Healthy Volunteers
Study Start Date : December 2016
Actual Primary Completion Date : July 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : September 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: SPR741

SPR741 is a novel chemical entity known as a potentiator that specifically interacts with the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria to increase the membrane's permeability. This increase in permeability allows Gram-positive antibiotics to enter and kill the cell.

SAD cohorts: Subjects will receive single doses of SPR741 over 60 minute IV infusion. Planned doses to be studied are 5, 15, 50, 100, 200, 400, 600 and 800 mg.

MAD cohorts: Subjects will receive SPR741 over 60 minute IV infusion three times a day (TID). Four dose groups will be studied. Doses will be determined by assessing SAD cohort data.

Drug: SPR741

SAD: Double-blind dosing will occur in cohorts 1 through 8. Six participants will receive single doses of SPR741. The dose escalation steps may be altered following review of the safety data upon completion of each cohort.

MAD: The Safety Management Group will evaluate the safety and tolerability data obtained for the participants in Cohorts 1-5 to determine the appropriate dose level of intravenous q8h dosing of SPR741 to be utilized in the first cohort (Cohort 9) in the MAD. Dosing will commence on the morning of Day 1. Three doses will be administered per day at approximately 8 hours apart. Daily dosing will continue for a total of 14 consecutive days.


Placebo Comparator: Placebo

The placebo used during this study is normal saline (0.9% sodium chloride for injection).

SAD: Subjects will receive single infusions of placebo (0.9% sodium chloride for injection) over 60 minutes.

MAD: Subjects will receive TID infusions of placebo over 60 minutes for 14 days

Drug: Placebo
0.9% sodium chloride for injection. SAD: Two participants in each cohort will receive matching placebo. MAD: Two participants in each cohort will receive matching placebo.
Other Name: 0.9% sodium chloride for injection

    Blood draws for PK: pre-dose (within 10 minutes), 30 minutes following the start of infusion, end of infusion and at 90, 150 minutes, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 hours following start of infusion (Day 1 (first dose) and Day 14 (last dose)). Five additional blood draws will be obtained at 10, 12, 24, 36 and 48 hours following the start of infusion of the last dose (morning of Day 14).

  3. Geometric means will be calculated for Concentration maximum (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 14 ]
    Blood draws for PK: pre-dose (within 10 minutes), 30 minutes following the start of infusion, end of infusion and at 90, 150 minutes, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 hours following start of infusion (Day 1 (first dose) and Day 14 (last dose)). Five additional blood draws will be obtained at 10, 12, 24, 36 and 48 hours following the start of infusion of the last dose (morning of Day 14).

    • Urine collection for PK: pre-dose Day 1 sample, total collection over 0-4, 4-8 hours following start of infusion of first dose on Day 1; then total collection over 0-4, 4-8, 8-12, 12-24 and 24-48 hours following start of infusion of the last dose (Day 14).

  5. Geometric means will be calculated for Concentration maximum (Cmax) Urine [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 14 ]
    • Urine collection for PK: pre-dose Day 1 sample, total collection over 0-4, 4-8 hours following start of infusion of first dose on Day 1; then total collection over 0-4, 4-8, 8-12, 12-24 and 24-48 hours following start of infusion of the last dose (Day 14).

  6. Mean SPR741 plasma concentration-time curves will be tabulated for each dose cohort. [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 14 ]
    • Blood draws for PK: pre-dose (within 10 minutes), 30 minutes following the start of infusion, end of infusion and at 90, 150 minutes, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 hours following start of infusion (Day 1 (first dose) and Day 14 (last dose)).
