Single Ascending Dose Study of ALA-1000

2019-10-16 10:39:25 | BioPortfolio


An open-label study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of ALA-1000 in opioid-dependent subjects. To characterize the PK profile of ALA-1000 in 5 single ascending dose cohorts and a sixth cohort of single ALA-1000 after receiving buprenorphine sublingual films for 7 days.


The study will include opioid-dependent subjects who have been receiving stable, orally administered buprenorphine for at least 2 weeks or buprenorphine naïve subjects who will be stabilized on orally administered buprenorphine for 3 days prior to ALA-1000 administration.

All subjects will be washed off of oral buprenorphine for 7 days prior to ALA-1000 administration except Cohort 6 which will receive ALA-1000 administration after 7 days of buprenorphine sublingual film dosing.

The subsequent cohorts will be initiated after safety and PK information from the preceding cohorts is available.

The expected maximum duration of participation for each subject is 192 days approximately, consisting of up to a 7-day screening period, up to a 31-day residential phase, and up to a 154-day nonresidential period.

Case Series: Limited Opioid Withdrawal With Use of Transdermal Buprenorphine to Bridge to Sublingual Buprenorphine in Hospitalized Patients.

Prerequisite opioid withdrawal symptoms prior to buprenorphine induction are unacceptable to many patients. We assessed whether transdermal buprenorphine minimized withdrawal while bridging to subling...

Patterns of non-prescribed buprenorphine and other opioid use among individuals with opioid use disorder: A latent class analysis.

Non-prescribed buprenorphine (NPB) use increased in the US. This study aims to characterize heterogeneity in patterns of NPB and other opioid use among individuals with current opioid use disorder.

Use of naltrexone in treating opioid use disorder in pregnancy.

The mainstay of managing opioid use disorder in pregnancy is with methadone or buprenorphine medication assisted treatment (MAT). Methadone and buprenorphine are opioid agonist drugs. Naltrexone, an o...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A derivative of the opioid alkaloid THEBAINE that is a more potent and longer lasting analgesic than MORPHINE. It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors. The lack of delta-agonist activity has been suggested to account for the observation that buprenorphine tolerance may not develop with chronic use.

A pharmaceutical preparation that combines buprenorphine, an OPIOID ANALGESIC with naloxone, a NARCOTIC ANTAGONIST to reduce the potential for NARCOTIC DEPENDENCE in the treatment of pain. It may also be used for OPIATE SUBSTITUTION THERAPY.

Medical treatment for opioid dependence using a substitute opiate such as METHADONE or BUPRENORPHINE.

A form of retention cyst of the floor of the mouth, usually due to obstruction of the ducts of the submaxillary or sublingual glands, presenting a slowly enlarging painless deep burrowing mucocele of one side of the mouth. It is also called sublingual cyst and sublingual ptyalocele.

Use of a device (film badge) for measuring exposure of individuals to radiation. It is usually made of metal, plastic, or paper and loaded with one or more pieces of x-ray film.
