Brief Summary:
Currently, there are no licensed therapeutics against Zika virus infection. Due to this unmet medical need, Zika Virus Immune Globulin (ZIKV-IG) is being developed as a therapeutic intervention against Zika virus infection. In this first-in-human study, evaluation of ZIKV-IG safety and pharmacokinetics (absorption, metabolism and excretion) will be conducted in healthy adult volunteers.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Zika Virus Infection Zika Virus Disease Biological: Zika Virus Immune Globulin (ZIKV-IG) Other: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This study will be evaluating safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of one dose level of ZIKV-IG (50 mL) in healthy adult volunteers. The study is a single-center, double-blind, randomized and placebo-controlled design. The primary objective is to assess safety of intravenously (IV) administered ZIKV-IG, while the secondary objective is to determine the PK profile of ZIKV-IG in healthy adult volunteers.

There will be a total of 30 subjects enrolled into the study; dosing of the first six subjects will be staggered over three separate days, wherein two subjects per day will be randomized 1:1 to either receive 50 mL of placebo IV or 50 mL of ZIKV-IG IV. After the first six subjects are dosed, the remaining 24 subjects will be randomized 2:1 to receive either ZIKV-IG or placebo. A safety monitoring committee will review safety data (collected up to 3 days post-dosing) of the first 12 dosed subjects prior to dosing of the remaining 18 subjects. Overall, there will be 19 subjects randomized to receive ZIKV-IG and 11 subjects randomized to receive placebo. On Days 1 and 2, safety and PK assessments will be conducted while the subjects are in the Phase 1 clinic. After the discharge on Day 2, the subjects will come back to the clinic for safety and PK assessments on Days 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 22, 29, 43, 57 and 85. Total study duration for each subject will be up to 4 months (from screening to Day 85).
