  Purpose

The purpose of this study was to assess the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of two clinical doses of the anti-orthopoxvirus drug, ST-246, administered as a single daily oral dose for 14 days to healthy, fed volunteers. The results of this trial determine which dose will be used in expanded pivotal safety trials.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Study Participants Who Tolerated a Single Daily Oral ST-246 Dose as Determined by Safety Parameter Changes According to the DAIDS (Division of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) Adverse Events (AE) Grading Table. [ Time Frame: Days 1 to 14; then 24, 48, 72, 96 and 120 hours and 4 weeks after final dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects were administered a single, daily oral dose of ST-246 (400 or 600 mg)and changes in safety parameteres were monitored. Safety parameters included adverse events, vital signs, physical examinations, laboratory tests (hematology, blood chemistry, and urinalysis) and electrocardiograms. The DAIDS AE grading table is a list of common terms and severity (intensity) of parameters used to describe adverse events occurring in NIAID-sponsored clinical studies/trials.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of Pharmacokinetic Parameters to Assess Interventions: Cmax [ Time Frame: Day 1 post-dose ] [ 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 14 post-dose ] [ 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 post-dose ] [ 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 14 post-dose ] [ 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: AUCtau [ Time Frame: Day 1 post-dose ] [ 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 14 post-dose ] [ 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: t½ [ Time Frame: Day 14 post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    t½: Observed terminal elimination half-life determined after the last dose on Day 14

Detailed Description:

This study is a Phase II, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-center (3 sites) trial to assess the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of 400 mg and 600 mg Form I ST-246 when administered as a single daily oral dose for 14 days to 107 healthy, fed volunteers between 18 and 74 years of age. Safety parameters included adverse events, vital signs, physical examinations, laboratory tests (hematology, blood chemistry, and urinalysis) and electrocardiograms.
