  Purpose

This trial will be conducted in the United States of America (USA). The aim of this clinical trial is to investigate whether NNC 0070-0002-0349 is safe and well tolerated.

Groups of eight subjects will be administered subcutaneous injections of NNC 0070-0002-0349 or placebo on Day 1 beginning with a low dose; after which laboratory and vital sign data as well as subject reported adverse events will be evaluated. If safe to proceed, the next group of subjects will be given a higher dose and the safety evaluation performed again before proceeding. In total, 5 dose levels will be evaluated.

Subjects will be administered a dose and remain in the clinic until the morning of Day 8 after dosing and vital signs and safety labs as well as blood drawn for pharmacokinetic samples taken. Subjects will return to the clinic on Days 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 22 for repeat blood draws and safety labs. Day 22 is the final study visit.
