Brief Summary:
This is a study to asses the safety and tolerability of single and multiple ascending doses of EP395, administered by oral capsules, in healthy subjects with the aim to determine the safe dose range of EP395 for further clinical development

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Adult ALL Drug: EP395 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is a study to asses the safety and tolerability of single and multiple ascending doses of EP395, administered by oral capsules, in healthy subjects with the aim to determine the safe dose range of EP395 for further clinical development. The study consists of two parts, part A where single-ascending doses will be assessed and part B where multiple-ascending doses will be assessed. The primary objective being safety and tolerability as well as the pharmacokinetic properties of EP395.
