Summary

A study of the pharmacokinetics of ustekinumab in Chinese male subjects.

Description

This is a randomized (study medication assigned by chance), open-label (both the physician and subject know the assigned study medication) study to assess the safety, tolerability, immune response, pharmacokinetics (what the body does to the drug), of ustekinumab (Stelara). The study population will consist of 24 healthy male participants in China. Participants will receive a single dose of either 45mg or 90 mg ustekinumab. Participants will be in the study for up to 16 weeks. Safety assessments will be performed throughout the study and include obtaining and evaluating laboratory tests, vital signs (e.g., blood pressure), and the occurrence and severity of adverse events. A single dose of 45 mg or 90 mg ustekinumab.

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. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.

Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.

Process of evaluating the health of a patient and determining if they are healthy enough for surgery.
