Study information

Scientific title

A First-in-Human Phase I, double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled study in healthy male volunteers to investigate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of recombinant human soluble Fc gamma receptor IIb, sFcγRIIb (SM101) administered intravenously as single ascending doses


Study hypothesis

The primary objective of this first-in-human study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of escalating single doses of intravenously administered sFcγRIIb (SM101).

The secondary objective of this study is to assess the pharmacokinetic profile of sFcγIIRb (SM101) in healthy male subjects.

Ethics approval

Ethics Committee approval was obtained from the Aerztekammer Nordrhein on 08/04/2009 (ref 2008402)

Study design

Chronic Adult Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura


sFcγRIIb (SM101) is a recombinant, soluble, non-glycosylated version of the human Fcγ receptor FcγRIIb.

Seven consecutive regular dose groups (0.004, 0.04, 0.4, 1, 2.5, 5 and 10 mg/ kg) will receive one single intravenous administration of sFcγRIIb (SM101) or placebo over 60 minutes under fasted conditions. Further 4 intermediate dose groups may be included, if deemed necessary for safety reasons. Each dose group consists of 6 subjects (4 verum, 2 placebo). Decision on dose escalation will be subject to an independent DSMB.

After a 14-day screening period the subjects will either be enrolled in the verum or placebo arm and will be hospitalised one day before treatment start (day -1). They will be discharged 72 hours after dosing (day 4) and return to the site on day 6, 8 and 12 for ambulatory visits. The active part of the study will be completed on day 15 (conclusion visit). Subjects will attend a follow-up visit 6 months and 1 year after dosing to collect further safety data.

2. IL-6 and CRP (pre-dose, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72 hours after start of infusion and on days 6, 8, 12 and day 15, FU 6 months and FU 1 year)
3. Vital signs, 12-lead ECG (screening, day -1, and 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, 48 and 72 hours after drug administration and on day 15, FU 6 months and FU 1 year)
4. Physical examination (screening, day -1, 24 and 48 hours after drug administration and on day 4 before discharge, day 15, FU 6 months and FU 1 year)
5. Local tolerability (day 1 at 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 4 and 12 hours after start of infusion, days 2 and 3 and before discharge on day 4)
6. Adverse events (The National Cancer Institute [NCI] Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE] v 3.0)

Secondary outcome measures
