Brief Summary:
This study has been designed as a multicentre, randomised, open label study of AVT02 in healthy adult subjects. The study will assess the PK, safety and tolerability of AVT02 in Pre-Filled Syringe compared to AVT02 in Autoinjector Pen. Both arms will use single dose of 40mg of AVT02 (Adalimumab)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Plaque Psoriasis Drug: Adalimumab Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This study is designed as a multi-center, randomized, open-label, 2-arm parallel study of AVT02 administered via a PFS either manually via an autoinjector, in healthy adult subjects.

A total of 204 subjects will be recruited into this study and will be randomly assigned with a ratio of 1:1 to receive either AVT02 manually or via autoinjector. As the study is open-label, both the site staff and the subjects themselves will know which treatments are being administered.

The study consists of a screening period, admission and treatment period, assessment period and end of study (EOS) visit. Subjects will undertake a screening visit between Day -28 and Day -1 to determine eligibility in the study. Those subjects that meet the eligibility criteria will be admitted to the study site on the evening prior to dosing (Day -1) when continued eligibility will be assessed.

On Day 1 prior to dosing, baseline assessments will be performed. Subjects will then be dosed according to the randomization schedule. Following dosing, PK, safety, tolerability and immunogenicity assessments will be performed according to the study schedule (Table 6). Subjects will remain confined to the study site from Day -1 to Day 3 (48 hours post-dose). Subjects will return to the study site on Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8, Day 9, Day 12, Day 15, Day 22, Day 29, Day 36, Day 43, Day 50 and Day 57.

An EOS visit will occur at study Day 64 for final study assessments. The EOS visit will also be the early termination visit if required (to be completed within 7 days of early termination wherever possible).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AVT02 100mg/mL in PFS
Prefilled Syringe Arm
Drug: Adalimumab

AVT02, a proposed similar biological product (biosimilar) of Humira which contains adalimumab . Adalimumab is a recombinant, fully human monoclonal immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) antibody that binds specifically and with high affinity to the soluble and transmembrane forms of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α thereby inhibiting the binding of TNF-α with its receptor, and inhibiting TNF -α's biological function.

Tumor necrosis factor-α is a naturally occurring cytokine that is key to normal inflammatory and immune responses. Elevated levels of TNF-α are found in the synovial fluid of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis patients and psoriasis plaques and play an important role in both the pathologic inflammation and joint destruction that are hallmarks of these inflammatory disease

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area under the plasma concentration-time curve AUC0-t [ Time Frame: From baseline to day 64 ]
    Venous blood samples will be collected for measurement of Area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC 0-t) of AVT02 given in PFS and AVT02 given in autoinjector

  2. Area under the plasma concentration-time curve AUC0-inf [ Time Frame: From baseline to day 64 ]
    Venous blood samples will be collected for measurement of Area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC 0-t) of AVT02 given in PFS and AVT02 given in autoinjector

  3. Maximum serum concentration [ Time Frame: From baseline to day 64 ]
    Venous blood samples will be collected for measurement of Area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC 0-t) of AVT02 given in PFS and AVT02 given in autoinjector


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain, Tenderness, Erythema and Swelling [ Time Frame: From baseline to day 64 ]
    The injection sites will be monitored for pain, tenderness, erythema and swelling. Each injection site reaction will be categorised using the Injection Site Intensity Grading Scheme. All four outcome measures mentioned in the title will be measured from this one scheme. According to the Intensity Grading Scheme, the Pain, Tenderness, Erythema and Swelling will be measured as Absent (0), Mild (1), Moderate Severe(3) and Potentially Life Threatening.

  2. Anti Drug Antibodies (ADRs) [ Time Frame: From baseline to day 64 ]
    Immunogenicity response will be determined from all patients treated with AVT02 from baseline to day 64 with a validated assay. Immunogenicity results (number of positive tested subjects/number of negative tested subjects; titer) will be summarized by treatment group (prefilled syringe group vs. autoinjector group). Immunogenicity assessments include antidrug antibodies (ADAs) and neutralizing antibodies (NAbs).

  3. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Baseline to day 84 ]
    Adverse events will be coded using MedDRA and grouped by system organ class and preferred term and summarised, by treatment group at the time of onset of the AE. The summary tables will present the number and percentage of total subjects and number of events, by system organ class and by preferred term. Injection related reactions will be listed and summarised by reaction using frequency counts and percentage, by treatment group
