Brief Summary:
This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose study to assess the safety and tolerability of PDC-APB by intramuscular (IM) injection compared to placebo.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Contact Dermatitis Drug: PDC-APB Other: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose study to assess the safety, tolerability and dermal reactogenicity in subjects shown to be sensitive to urushiol of PDC-APB by intramuscular (IM) injection compared to placebo. In this study, it is anticipated that up to 4 dose levels (5.0 mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, and 20 mg PDC-APB) will be studied in sequential cohorts. Each cohort will enroll 8 subjects, 6 subjects randomized to active treatment and 2 randomized to placebo, in a double-blind manner.

Safety will be assessed in each cohort before starting treatment at the next higher dose level. If the study treatment is tolerated and there are no findings that necessitate stopping the study, the next cohort will be treated at the next higher dose level, in the same manner. This process will continue until the highest intended dose is reached, or side effects that limit further dose escalation are observed.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 32 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Phase I, Single-Center, Double-Blind, Randomized Safety, Tolerability, and Dermal Reactogenicity Study of PDC-APB in Healthy Volunteers With a History of Contact Dermatitis Due to Poison Ivy Exposure
Estimated Study Start Date : November 1, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : November 1, 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 1, 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: PDC-APB
Study duration for each subject is approximately 15 weeks (105 days) for Screening including patch testing, Treatment, and the initial 30-day post-treatment periods. Approximately 6 weeks after treatment, subjects will receive a second patch test. In addition, each subject will be followed from T1 for 6 months by monthly telephone follow-up to monitor adverse events. Subjects in Cohorts 2, 3 and 4 and, if applicable, additional cohorts, will not be dosed until all subjects from the prior cohort have completed the assessments after IP dosing and the Safety Review Committee has reviewed the results prior to Day T14. All subjects will be followed for 6 months after IP dosing for safety assessments, which will be carried out at monthly intervals via telephone.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Adverse Events [Safety and tolerability] [ Time Frame: 24 Weeks ]

    The Primary outcome measure for this study will be the overall safety profile observed during the post-treatment observation period in the study population. AEs will be classified by organ class using the coding system and by severity (Grades 1-4, Toxicity Grading Scale for Healthy Adult and Adolescent Volunteers Enrolled in Preventive Vaccine Clinical Trials).

    The primary objective of the study is to assess the safety and tolerability of PDC-APB following single doses administered intramuscularly to healthy subjects between 18 and 65 years of age.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Urushiol Sensitivity [scored +/-, 0-4] [ Time Frame: 15 Weeks ]
    Secondary assessments will evaluate the effect of PDC-APB injection on urushiol sensitivity (scored +/-, 0-4). Local reactogenicity to the second urushiol patch applied 6 weeks after IP injection will be compared to the reactogenicity scores following application of the first patch 6 weeks prior to injection of IP.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Healthy male and female subjects, as determined by medical history and physical examination, from 18 to 65 years of age, inclusive.
  2. Documented history of urushiol exposure on the Allergic Contact Dermatitis Questionnaire.
  3. For female subjects: Surgically sterile or menopausal (at least 1-year absence of vaginal bleeding or spotting). Females of childbearing age/potential may be included provided they are using medically acceptable methods of birth control for 1 month prior to and for the duration of the study and 3 months thereafter. Dual methods, for example, a hormonal method used with a barrier method, must be used.
  4. For male subjects and their partners of childbearing potential: Willing to use 2 methods of contraception, 1 of which must be a barrier method, for the duration of the study and 3 months after the last dose of IP, and agree to not donate sperm for 3 months after the last dose of IP.
  5. Has sufficient normal skin area on the back to accommodate two patch applications (no scarring, acne, excessive hair, or tattooing)
  6. Able to participate and willing to give written informed consent and to comply with the study restrictions.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. History of alcohol or drug abuse within the past 24 months or related concerns of the investigator.
