Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Study Participants Who Tolerated ST-246 (250, 400 or 800mg) as Determined by Changes in Safety Parameters, According to the Division of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (DAIDS) Adverse Events (AE) Grading Table [ Time Frame: Days 1, 6, 14-16, 21-24, 28-31, and 51-53 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Evaluated safety parameters included:

    1. physical examination/vital signs
    2. electrocardiograms (heart rate, PR interval, QRS duration, QT interval, and QTc Bazett)
    3. laboratory safety tests (hematology, chemistry, urinalysis)
    4. adverse events (AEs) For a)-c), statistical values (mean, standard deviation, median, minimum, maximum) and changes from baseline (Day 1 pre-dose) to each time-point, were compared to laboratory normal reference ranges. If values for a)-d) were a Grade 3 or higher (in DAIDS AE Table)and ST-246-related, they were considered severe and significant, respectively.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: Cmax [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cmax: Maximum drug concentration in plasma determined directly from individual concentration-time data

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: Cmax [ Time Frame: Day 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cmax: Maximum drug concentration in plasma determined directly from individual concentration-time data

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: Cmax [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cmax: Maximum drug concentration in plasma determined directly from individual concentration-time data

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: Tmax [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tmax: Time to reach maximum drug concentration in plasma calculated from [plasma] versus time profiles.

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: Tmax [ Time Frame: Day 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tmax: Time to reach maximum drug concentration in plasma calculated from [plasma] versus time profiles.

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: Tmax [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tmax: Time to reach maximum drug concentration in plasma calculated from [plasma] versus time profiles.

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: t½ [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    t½: Observed terminal elimination half-life determined after the last dose on Day 21

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: AUCtau [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUCtau: Area under the plasma concentration-time curve for each dosing interval (from time 0 to 24 hours sample) determined using the linear trapezoidal rule

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: AUCtau [ Time Frame: Day 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUCtau: Area under the plasma concentration-time curve for each dosing interval (from time 0 to 24 hours sample) determined using the linear trapezoidal rule

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: AUCtau [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUCtau: Area under the plasma concentration-time curve for each dosing interval (from time 0 to 24 hours sample) determined using the linear trapezoidal rule

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: Ae(0-24) [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Ae(0-24): Cumulative amount of drug excreted unchanged in urine over 24 hours (three 8-hour collection periods), determined on Days 1 and 21

  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: Ae(0-24) [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Ae(0-24): Cumulative amount of drug excreted unchanged in urine over 24 hours (three 8-hour collection periods), determined on Days 1 and 21

Detailed Description:

This was a double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalating, multiple-dose study of orally administered ST-246 to 30 healthy volunteers ages 18-50 years, randomized to receive either active drug (8 subjects) or placebo (2 subjects) in 1 of 3 dosing groups (250, 400 or 800mg groups). Each dose group of 10 was divided into two cohorts of 5 subjects (4 active and 1 placebo). The first cohort was dosed approximately 4-8 weeks before the second cohort of each dose group. Dose groups completed the study treatment approximately 5 weeks prior to the start of the following dose group. Study procedures included several overnight stays, medical history/exam, laboratory testing done by blood draw, and electrocardiograms.
