Drug: BCI-838
Drug: BCI-1038, BCI-1206 & BCI-1283
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Single Ascending Dose Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetic and Food Effect of BCI-838; and, An Open-Label Minidose Bioavailability Study to Compare Several BCI-632 Pro-drug Candidates in Healthy Male Subjects

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Safety will be evaluated by adverse events, vital signs, ECG, clinical labs, and physical exam.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Cmax, tmax, t1/2 , AUC, CL/F, Vz/F, and Kel of BCI-838 and BCI-632 [ Time Frame: predose and at specified intervals up to 72 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The pharmacokinetics of BCI-838 and its metabolite BCI-632, an assessment of the dose proportionality of the pharmacokinetics following single ascending doses of BCI-838, and an evaluation of the relative bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of the metabolite BCI-632 following oral administration of several new pro-drug candidates will be completed by assessment of Cmax, tmax, t1/2 , AUC, CL/F, Vz/F, and Kel.

Eight subjects will be enrolled, 6 will receive BCI-838 and 2 will receive matching placebo.
Drug: BCI-838
BCI-838 administered as a single 30 mg oral dose or matching placebo under fasted and fed conditions in a crossover design
Experimental: BCI-838 Fasted Dosing (100 & 300 mg)
Eight subjects will be enrolled, 6 will receive BCI-838 and 2 will receive matching placebo.
Drug: BCI-838
BCI-838 100 mg and 300 mg or matching placebo administered as single oral doses under fasted conditions in a sequential design
Experimental: BCI-1038, BCI-1206 & BCI-1283
Six subjects will be enrolled, all 6 will receive single doses of BCI-1038, BCI-1206 and BCI-1283.
Drug: BCI-1038, BCI-1206 & BCI-1283
Three new pro-drugs administered as a 1 mg single oral doses under fasted conditions in a sequential design
Experimental: BCI-838 Fasted Dosing (900 mg)
Eight subjects will be enrolled, 6 will receive BCI-838 and 2 will receive matching placebo.
Drug: BCI-838
BCI-838 900 mg or matching placebo administered as a single oral dose under fasted conditions

Detailed Description:

The first phase of this study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of BCI-838 following oral administration of single doses of BCI-838 in healthy male subjects. The pharmacokinetics of BCI-838 and its metabolite BCI-632 following single ascending doses of BCI-838 will be evaluated, as will the effect of food on the pharmacokinetics of BCI-838 and its metabolite following single oral doses of BCI-838 in healthy male subjects.

The second phase of this study will evaluate and compare the relative bioavailability and PK of the metabolite BCI-632 following single oral administration of several new pro-drug candidates in healthy male subjects.
