Brief Summary:

The purpose of this Phase I study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of ALLN-346 in in normal healthy volunteers, in an ascending dose design.

ALLN-346 is an (oral) enzyme that specifically degrades urate in the intestinal tract.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hyperuricemia Gout Drug: ALLN-346 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase I, 7-day, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple ascending dose study of orally administered ALLN-346 in normal healthy volunteers. Study will take place at a clinical pharmacology unit (CPU). Two sequential cohorts will be dosed and followed for safety through Day 28.

The study will evaluate safety and tolerability (including inflammation and immunogenicity), and pharmacodynamics of ALLN-346.
