Salvianolic acid A has a variety of pharmacological effects, such as: anti-oxidation, scavenging oxygen free radicals, anti-fibrosis, anti-myocardial ischemia, anti-coagulation, anti-thrombosis, anti-tumor, etc. Professor Du Guanhua, at Institue of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, first discovered that salvianolic acid A can alleviate diabetic complications and improve patients' quality of life. With the support of major national science and technology projects, the preclinical research work of salvianolic acid A was completed, and the application was approved by the State Food and Drug Administration (Clinical Approval No.: 2016L06293).The purpose of this study is to assess the safety,tolerability, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of an extended dosing regimen ofsalvianolic acid A: open label, continuous subcutaneous infusion for 7 days were tested as ascending doses of salvianolic acid A from 90mg up to 180 mg.


This was a Phase I repeated incremental doses study in healthy volunteers. A total of 24 subjects was planned to be enrolled. This was performed according to a double blind, randomized, placebo controlled design and included two sequential dose groups of repeat doses. Each group enrolled 12 subjects on salvianolic acid A or placebo (ratio 9 experimental: 3 placebo) and received salvianolic acid A or placebo twice daily (90mg) or daily (180mg) for 7 days, and follow-up to 3 or 4 days.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.

Excessive thirst manifested by excessive fluid intake. It is characteristic of many diseases such as DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS; and NEPHROGENIC DIABETES INSIPIDUS. The condition may be psychogenic in origin.
