Effect of SRT2379 on Endotoxin-Induced Inflammation
SRT2379 is a potent small molecule activator of SIRT1 that has been found to inhibit systemic inflammation induced by intravenous injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in mice. The objective of this study is to test if SRT2379 may be a novel compound for the treatment of inflammatory disorders in man.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics/Dynamics Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
|Official Title:||A Phase I Study to Evaluate a Single Oral Dose of SRT2379 on the Endotoxin Induced Inflammatory Response in Healthy Male Subjects|
- To determine if a single dose of SRT2379 attenuates the inflammatory response in normal healthy male subjects after exposure to low-dose endotoxin (LPS). [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To determine PK of SRT2379 in normal healthy male subjects exposed to low-dose endotoxin (LPS). [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To determine the safety profile of SRT2379 in healthy male subjects exposed to low-dose endotoxin (LPS). [ Time Frame: 10 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
