A Phase 1, Single Center, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Single (Part 1) and Multiple (Part 2) Ascending Dose Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, PK and PD of M281 Administered to Healthy Volunteers
Counts and Percentages of adverse events by treatment group [ Time Frame: Baseline until up-to 12 weeks post-dose ]
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Serum concentrations of M281 will be summarized using descriptive statistics (arithmetic means, SDs, coefficients of variation, sample size, minimum, maximum, and geometric means). [ Time Frame: Baseline up-to 12 weeks post-dose ]
PD of M281 will summarize changes in serum markers of inflammation. [ Time Frame: Up until 12 weeks post dose ]
