Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Investigation on Safety, Tolerability and Bioavailability of Oral NN9924 in Healthy Male Subjects

Further study details as provided by Novo Nordisk A/S:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number and severity of adverse events (AEs) recorded [ Time Frame: from dosing to Day 22 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The uptake in blood of oral NN9924 compared to i.v. and s.c. administration of the same compound [ Time Frame: from 0 to 504 hours ]

Enrollment: 155
Study Start Date: December 2009
Study Completion Date: May 2010
Primary Completion Date: May 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Trial part 1 Drug: NN9924 (oral)
Subjects will be randomized to receive a single dose of NN9924, at escalating dose levels. Progression to next dose will be based on safety evaluation.
Drug: placebo
Subjects will receive a single dose of placebo as a comparator to NN9924, at all dose levels.
Experimental: Trial part 2 Drug: NN9924 (oral)
Subjects will be randomized to receive a single dose of NN9924 in one of three different concentrations. The dose will be selected based on the results of part 1.
Drug: placebo
Subjects will be randomized to receive a single dose of placebo.
Drug: NN9924 (s.c.)
As an active comparator, one standard dose will be given s.c. (under the skin) at one study visit
Drug: NN9924 (i.v.)
As an active comparator, one standard dose will be given i.v. (into the vein) at one study visit.
