Brief Summary:
Study BOS161721-01 is a randomized, single center, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial conducted to study the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics (PD) of single ascending intravenous (IV) and subcutaneous (SC) doses of BOS161721 or placebo in healthy adult male and female participants.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Participants Drug: BOS161721 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Study BOS161721-01 will consist of 7 single ascending dose (SAD) cohorts, each with 8 participants (6 active:2 placebo), and an eighth SAD cohort with 5 participants (all active). Participants will be randomized in a 3:1 ratio (BOS161721:placebo) and will either receive a single dose of BOS161721 (1, 3, 10, 22, 30, 60, 120, or 240 milligrams [mg]) or placebo. Participants in Cohort 1 will receive the lowest dose, administered IV (1 mg), followed by Cohort 2, in which participants will receive the second lowest dose, administered SC (3 mg). BOS161721 or placebo will also be administered SC in Cohorts 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8. Participants in Cohort 6 will be administered an IV dose of 22 mg (5 active) in parallel to the 60 mg SC-dosed fifth cohort. This dose has been selected to generate a similar exposure to that following the 30 mg SC dose. The actual Cohort 6 IV dose may be adjusted upon available PK data.

Participants will be in this study for up to 56 weeks, which includes a Screening Period of up to 28 days, a single-dose treatment day (during the in-subject treatment period), and a 52-week post-treatment Follow-up Period, which is required due to the potential half-life of BOS161721.

  • Participants who have a positive test, or have been treated, for Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C virus, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), cytomegalovirus (CMV) or Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Regarding Hepatitis B, any of the following would exclude the participant from the study:

    • Participants with positive Hepatitis B Surface antigen (HBsAg);
    • Participants with Hepatitis B DNA levels > 200 copies/mL (quantified by real-time polymerase chain reaction) in case the participant is positive for Hepatitis B surface antibody (HBsAb) but negative for HBsAg;
