Assessment of the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacodynamics After Administration of One Dose of AZD8601 to Male Patients With Type II Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM)

2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio


This study will be a Phase I, FiH, randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled, SAD study in male patients with T2DM, performed at a single study center. The study will consist of 2 parts, (A and B) up to 60 male patients with T2DM aged 18 to 65 years will be included.


Part A will assess the safety and tolerability of SAD of ID injection of AZD8601 (modified VEGF-A RNA) and Part B will evaluate the pharmacodynamic effects of ID injection of AZD8601 in forearm skin. AZD8601 is a VEGF-A modRNA under development as a novel modality for local production of human VEGF-A protein and is developed for the treatment of diabetic patients with ulcers. Each patient in Part A will be involved in the study for 7 to 8 weeks. Each patient in Part B will be involved in the study for 5 to 6 weeks.

Safety and tolerability variables includes Adverse events (AEs), Vital signs (BP, pulse), ECG, Hematology, Clinical chemistry, Urinalysis.

The study will include patients with T2DM that are on stable doses of 1 to 2 anti-diabetic medications. The T2DM patients may also be on medications for comorbidities such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, hyperuricemia, thyroid disorders, benign prostate hyperplasia etc. (e.g. diuretics, statins, allopurionol, thyroxin), but must be healthy otherwise.
