This study will assess the pharmacokinetic profile, safety and tolerability of an octreotide extended long-acting formulation after a single dose in humans. It will investigate the profile of a single dose of drug in a healthy volunteer subject in order to understand the timing and extent of fluctuations in octreotide concentrations in the blood with this formulation, the relationship of drug concentration with dose, and how long the drug remains in the body system.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010.
