Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1, first-in-human study designed to assess the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of NLY01, a PEGylated form of exenatide, in healthy volunteers. NLY01 is being developed as a potential treatment for neurodegenerative disorders including Parkinson's disease. This study is intended to identify the appropriate dose-range for evaluation in Parkinson's disease patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Safety and Tolerability in Healthy Volunteers Drug: NLY01 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 1, first-in-human, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, single and multiple-dose study to assess the safety, tolerability, and PK of NLY01, a PEGylated form of the anti-diabetic peptide exenatide, when administered by SC injection in healthy subjects.

In Part A of the study, 5 ascending-dose cohorts will be sequentially enrolled with an evaluation of safety and tolerability prior to each dose-escalation. Subjects in each cohort will be randomized to receive NLY01 or placebo. Each dose escalation and selection of doses for Part B will be conducted with oversight by an independently-chaired Safety Review Committee.

In Part B, subjects will receive once-weekly subcutaneous doses of NLY01 or placebo for 4 weeks. Three ascending-dose cohorts will be sequentially-enrolled with a safety review prior to each dose-escalation. Subjects in all Part B cohorts will receive fixed doses of NLY01 (or placebo) once-weekly for 4 weeks.

    Frequency and intensity of treatment-related adverse events as assessed using the CTCAE v4.03 criteria and the DMID Adult Toxicity Table for GI-related events.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics of NLY01 [ Time Frame: Periodic, predose through Day 29 (Part A) or Day 57 (Part B) ]
    Serum concentration-time profiles for NLY01

  2. Immunogenicity [ Time Frame: Periodic, predose through Day 29 (Part A) or Day 57 (Part B) ]
    Serum anti-drug antibody assessment

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Men or women, 18 to 65 years of age, inclusive.
  • BMI ≥ 18.5 and ≤ 32.0 kg/m2 at screening and check-in. BMI = weight (kg)/(height [m])2.
  • Women of child-bearing potential must agree to use a medically acceptable method of contraception from screening through 30 days after the final dose of study drug.
  • Non-childbearing potential.
  • Men who are sexually active and whose partners are women of child-bearing potential must agree to use condoms from screening through 90 days after administration of study drug, and their partners must be willing to use a medically acceptable method of contraception (a barrier method, intrauterine device, or hormonal contraception) from screening through 90 days after administration of the last dose of study drug.
  • Men must agree to not donate sperm from screening through 90 days after study drug administration.
  • Subjects must be able to communicate effectively with the study personnel.
  • Subjects must be healthy and without clinically significant abnormalities as assessed by review of medical and surgical history, physical examination, vital signs measurement, ECG, and laboratory evaluations conducted at screening and on Day -1 Check-in. A single repeat measurement/test may be performed to confirm vital signs, ECG, and clinical laboratory tests abnormalities (ie, to confirm that a subject is eligible).
