The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, activity and pharmacokinetics of a new investigational drug (HQK-1001) in healthy human volunteers. This study will also evaluate if there are differences in these parameters when HQK-1001 is administered in a fed versus a fasted state.
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Phase 1, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled, Repeat-Dose Study of the Safety, Activity and Pharmacokinetics of HQK-1001 in Healthy Volunteers
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Safety as assessed by (1) adverse events, (2) laboratory values (3) vital signs (4) physical exam [ Time Frame: 41 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Pharmacokinetics assessed by plasma drug concentration levels [ Time Frame: 15 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Pharmacodynamics assessed by red blood cell production and induction of fetal hemoglobin [ Time Frame: 41 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Comparison of safety, PK and PD under fed versus fasting conditions [ Time Frame: 41 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Comparison of safety and PK when oral iron is administered with HQK-1001. [ Time Frame: 41 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
