Brief Summary:

This is a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose escalation study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and PK of single and multiple inhaled doses of imatinib inhalation solution (AER-901) in healthy adult volunteers. This study consists of 2 parts and an optional third part:

  • Part A: double-blind, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose (SAD).
  • Part B: double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple-ascending dose (MAD).
  • Part C (optional): an open-label, single-dose, 2-way crossover. Each part of the study will include a 28-day screening period, a treatment period, and follow-up period.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Drug: AER-901 Solution for Nebulization Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose escalation study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and PK of single and multiple inhaled doses of imatinib inhalation solution (AER-901) in healthy adult volunteers. This study consists of 2 parts and an optional third part:

  • Part A: double-blind, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose (SAD).
  • Part B: double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple-ascending dose (MAD).
  • Part C (optional): an open-label, single-dose, 2-way crossover.

The decision to proceed with Part C will be made by the Sponsor after reviewing unblinded safety and PK data from Part A and Part B of the study.

Oversight for the study will be provided by a safety review committee (SRC). The decision to progress from Cohort A1 to Cohort A2 will be based on safety and tolerability data from Cohort A1. The decision to progress from Cohort A2 to Cohort A3 will be based on review of safety and tolerability data from Cohort A2 and PK data from Cohort A1 by the SRC. A similar sequence will follow for subsequent progression decisions by the SRC for all the cohorts in Part A and Part B of the study.

Each part of the study will include a 28-day screening period, a treatment period, and follow-up period.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 78 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

In Part A of the study, participants will be enrolled into 1 of up to 5 sequential cohorts (Cohorts A1 to A5). Each cohort will consist of 8 participants (6 participants receiving AER 901 and 2 participants receiving placebo).

In Part B, participants will be enrolled into 1 of up to 4 cohorts (Cohorts B1 to B4). Each cohort will consist of 8 participants (6 participants receiving AER 901 and 2 participants receiving placebo).

Part C of the study (optional), which has a 2-way crossover design, will compare a single treatment of oral imatinib (Gleevec®) versus a single treatment of inhaled AER 901 (dose TBD). Participants will be enrolled into a single cohort (Cohort C1).

Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Masking Description: All parts of the study will be double masked. The Sponsor, Investigator, MM, study personnel, and participants are not to make any effort to determine which IP therapy is being received. Unmasked pharmacy personnel will be used in this study to prepare the IP.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants with Treatment Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: From randomization though study completion (up to 17 days following last treatment) ]
    TEAEs will be summarized by treatment group using frequency and percent for each system organ class and preferred term within each system, organ and class (SOC)

  2. Number of Participants with Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From randomization though study completion (up to 17 days following last treatment) ]
    SAEs will be summarized by treatment group using frequency and percent for each system organ class and preferred term within each system, organ and class (SOC)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Systemic exposure to imatinib (in plasma) after a single administration of AER-901 (Part A) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose through 72 hours post dose ]
    Plasma will be collected pre-dose, 0.5 h, 1 h, 2 h, 3 h, 4 h, 6 h, 9 h, 12 h , 24 h, 48 h, and 72 h post dose.

  2. Systemic exposure to imatinib (in plasma) after multiple administrations of AER-901 (Part B) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose through 96 hours post last dose ]
    Plasma will be collected at Days 1, 3, 5, and 7 at pre-dose, 0.5 h, 1 h, 2 h, 3 h, 4 h, 6 h, 9 h, 12 h (and 24 h, 48 h, 72 h, and 96 h post last dose).

  3. Systemic exposure to imatinib (in urine) after single administration of AER-901 (Part A) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose through 72 hours post dose ]
    Urine will be collected pre-dose, and post dose on Day 1, 24 h, 48 h, 72 h post dose

  4. Systemic exposure to imatinib (in urine) after multiple administrations of AER-901 (Part B) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose through 96 hours post last dose ]
