Plain English Summary

Background and study aims
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is an autoimmune disease of the digestive system with unknown causes that has two main types: Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and Crohn’s Disease (CD). CD and UC are not well managed with current drugs either because of limited effectiveness or significant side effects. BT-11 is a new drug targeting UC and CD. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in mouse models of IBD. The aim of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic profile of BT-11 (movement of drug through the body) after single and multiple increasing oral doses in healthy volunteers.

Who can participate?
Healthy male and female volunteers aged 18 to 65 years, inclusive

What does the study involve?
Participants are randomly allocated to receive either BT-11 or a placebo (dummy drug) as a single ascending dose (SAD) or multiple ascending dose (MAD) to measure the safety of the drug. The total maximum duration on study for SAD participants is about 35 days (up to 28-day screening period, 3-day treatment/confinement period, and 4-day follow-up). The total maximum duration on study for MAD participants is about 44 days (up to 28 days screening, 8 days treatment/confinement, and 8 days follow-up).

What are the possible benefits and risks of participating?
The patients were not expected to receive any direct medical benefits from the study. The information developed in this study may help people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. As this drug is new, it was not known what all the possible side effects may be and there may be unknown risks. However, based on animal data, no specific safety concerns have been identified.

Where is the study run from?
CMAX Clinical Research (Australia)

When is the study starting and how long is it expected to run for?
June 2018 to October 2018

Study information

Scientific title

A randomized, placebo-controlled, sequential single and multiple dose-escalation study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of oral BT-11 in healthy adult male and female volunteers

Acronym

Study hypothesis

BT-11 is a first-in-class modulator of LANCL2 signaling. Through its action on LANCL2, BT-11 intervention will suppress the pathology of IBD patients at 2 levels: by decreasing the production of inflammatory mediators and increasing anti-inflammatory molecules in the GI tract.

Intervention

This is a two-stage, single-center, double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled study of BT-11 in healthy male and female volunteers. The two stages are a single ascending dose (SAD), and multiple ascending dose (MAD).

All participants who were dosed were assigned a randomization number in accordance with the randomization schedule after confirmation of eligibility on Day 1.

The single ascending dose (SAD) cohorts consist of five groups of eight healthy male and female participants per cohort, each receiving a single oral dose of BT-11 or placebo in a 6-hour fasted state for a total n = 8, with n= 6 receiving active and n=2 receiving placebo. Five different doses were used for SAD (7.7 mg/kg, 25 mg/kg, 50 mg/kg, 75 mg/kg, and 100 mg/kg).

The multiple ascending dose (MAD) cohorts will consist of three cohorts of ten healthy male and female participants, each receiving an oral dose of BT-11 or placebo once daily for seven days, with n = 8 receiving active and n = 2 receiving placebo. For MAD three different doses were used (7.7 mg/kg, 50 mg/kg, and 100 mg/kg).

SAD Follow up: Total maximum duration on study for SAD participants will be approximately 35 days (up to 28-day screening period, 3-day treatment/confinement period, and 4- day follow-up period).

MAD Follow up: Total maximum duration on study for MAD participants will be approximately 44 days (up to 28 days screening, 8 days treatment/confinement, and 8 days follow-up).

Eligibility

Participant inclusion criteria

1. Healthy male and female volunteers aged 18 to 65 years, inclusive
2. Body weight 65 - 85 kg
3. Body Mass Index (weight in kg divided by square of height in meters) 19-31 kg/m2, inclusive

Male volunteers must agree to abstain, between dosing and 30 days post-dosing, from sexual intercourse with pregnant or lactating women and, if sexually active with a female partner, to use a condom in addition to his female partner’s use of another form of contraception (e.g., IUD, diaphragm, oral contraceptive, injectable progesterone contraceptive, subdermal implant contraceptive, or tubal ligation). A male practicing abstinence is also acceptable
5. Female subjects of child-bearing potential, with a fertile male sexual partner, should be willing to use adequate contraception from Day 1 until 30 days after the follow-up visit. Adequate contraception is defined as a combination of two methods of contraception known to be effective, such as an intrauterine device with a barrier method, or two different barrier methods.. Also, total abstinence, in accordance with the lifestyle of the subject, is acceptable
6. Volunteer agrees not to take any concomitant medications, including prescriptions or over-the-counter (OTC) medications during the interval from 3 days prior to dosing until after the last PK blood draw for the study

8. Volunteer is able to communicate effectively with study personnel
9. Volunteer is able to understand and comply with protocol and investigative site requirements, instructions, and restrictions.

10. History of drug or alcohol abuse (by DSM-IV definition) within 3 months prior to screening
11. Positive urine drug screen (including cotinine, cannabis, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, and other tests as determined by Investigator). Repeating analyses will be allowed if the PI suspects that there might be false positive results
12. Volunteer has a contraindication to blood sampling or is considered to have insufficient peripheral venous access
