A Single Ascending Dose Study of ACT-541468 in Healthy Male Subjects

2016-09-29 23:08:21 | BioPortfolio


The main objectives of this first-into-man study were to investigate the safety, tolerability and the pharmacokinetic profile of single oral doses of ACT-541468 in healthy male adults. Pharmacodynamic effects (through a battery of Central Nervous System tests) were also assessed.


The study consisted of ascending dose groups; each dose group was investigated in a new group of 8 healthy male subjects (6 on active drug and 2 on placebo). In addition, the study included a biocomparison part (dose group 2), an absolute bioavailability part (dose group 4), and a mass balance / metabolism part (dose group 3).
