Brief Summary:

The primary objective of this trial is to investigate the safety and tolerability of BI 1015550 in healthy male subjects following oral administration of single rising doses.

Secondary objectives are the exploration of the pharmacokinetics (PK) including dose proportionality of BI 1015550 after single dosing.

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years to 45 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Healthy male subjects according to the assessment of the investigator, based on a complete medical history including a physical examination, vital signs (Blood Pressure (BP), Pulse Rate (PR)), 12-lead Electrocardiogram (ECG), and clinical laboratory tests
  • Age of 20 to 45 years (incl.) at screening.
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18.5 to 25.0 kg/m2 (incl.) at screening.
  • Signed and dated written informed consent prior to admission to the study in accordance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and local legislation

Exclusion criteria:

  • Any finding in the medical examination (including Blood Pressure (BP), Pulse Rate (PR) or Electrocardiogram (ECG)) is deviating from normal and judged as clinically relevant by the investigator
  • Repeated measurement of systolic blood pressure outside the range of 90 to 140 mmHg, diastolic blood pressure outside the range of 50 to 90 mmHg, or pulse rate outside the range of 50 to 90 beats per minute (bpm) at screening
  • Any laboratory value outside the reference range that the investigator considers to be of clinical relevance at screening
  • Any evidence of a concomitant disease judged as clinically relevant by the investigator
  • Gastrointestinal, hepatic, renal, respiratory, cardiovascular, metabolic, immunological or hormonal disorders
  • Cholecystectomy and/or surgery of the gastrointestinal tract that could interfere with the pharmacokinetics of the trial medication (except appendectomy and simple hernia repair)
  • Diseases of the central nervous system (including but not limited to any kind of seizures or stroke), and other relevant neurological or psychiatric disorders, including but not limited to mood disorders and any history of suicidality
  • History of relevant orthostatic hypotension, fainting spells, or blackouts
  • Chronic or relevant acute infections including viral hepatitis, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and/or syphilis. (Subject with positive Hepatitis B core antibody will not allowed to participate in this trial)
  • History of relevant allergy or hypersensitivity (including allergy to the trial medication or its excipients)
  • Use of drugs within 30 days prior to administration of trial medication if that might reasonably influence the results of the trial (incl. QT/QTc interval prolongation)
  • Participation in another trial where an investigational drug has been administered within 60 days prior to planned administration of trial medication, or current participation in another trial involving administration of investigational drug
  • Smoker (more than 10 cigarettes or 3 cigars or 3 pipes per day)
  • Inability to refrain from smoking on trial days
  • Alcohol abuse (consumption of more 30 g per day)
  • Drug abuse or positive drug screening
  • Blood donation of more than 100 mL within 30 days prior to administration of trial medication or intended donation during the trial
  • Intention to perform excessive physical activities within one week prior to administration of trial medication or during the trial
  • Inability to comply with dietary regimen of trial site
  • A marked baseline prolongation of QT/QTc interval (such as QTc intervals that are repeatedly greater than 450 ms) or any other relevant ECG finding at screening
  • A history of additional risk factors for Torsades de Pointes (such as heart failure, hypokalemia, or family history of Long QT Syndrome)
  • Subject is assessed as unsuitable for inclusion by the investigator, for instance, because considered not able to understand and comply with study requirements, or has a condition that would not allow safe participation in the study
  • Male subjects who do not agree to minimize the risk of female partners becoming pregnant from the first dosing day until three months after the study completion.

Acceptable methods of contraception comprises barrier contraception and a medically accepted contraceptive method for the female partner (intra-uterine device or hormonal contraceptive since at least two months)

In addition, the following trial-specific exclusion criteria apply:

  • Positive or missing fecal occult blood (no retest allowed) at screening
  • Positive testing for fecal calprotectin (retest allowed) at screening
  • Positive testing for hematuria if confirmed by microscopic urine analysis (retest allowed) at screening
  • Any lifetime history of suicidal behavior (i.e. actual attempt, interrupted attempt, aborted attempt, or preparatory acts or behavior)
