The main purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of AZD8418 after single increasing oral doses.

Another purpose of this study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (also called PK - how the study drug enters and leaves the body and how your body acts on the study drug) of AZD8418. Part B of the study will assess the effect of food on the safety and pharmacokinetics of AZD8418.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Drug: AZD8418 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Phase I, Single-center, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Single-ascending Dose, First Time Into Man Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics (Part A) and an Open-label Assessment of the Effect of Food on the Pharmacokinetics (Part B) of Orally Administered AZD8418

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the safety and tolerability of AZD8418 following the oral administration of single ascending doses and to estimate the maximum tolerated dose in healthy volunteers. [ Time Frame: Safety assessments will be obtained daily throughout the study ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterise the pharmacokinetics of AZD8418 and its metabolites in plasma and urine, and provisionally assess the dose proportionality of the pharmacokinetics following administration of single ascending doses of AZD8418. [ Time Frame: samples will be obtained pre and post dose ]
  • To assess the effect of food on the safety and pharmacokinetic profile of AZD8418 and its metabolites. [ Time Frame: samples will be obtained pre and post dose ]

Enrollment: 40
