Last verified: December 2013
  Purpose

Dose cohorts may be dosed with one of up to 4 possible total weekly doses (0.3 mg, 1 mg, 2 mg, 4 mg). Dose escalation or repetition will be governed by pre-specified safety and activity rules. Subjects will be confined on days 1-3 and/or days 8-10. Follow-up visits are required periodically through day 43. Subjects with sustained reductions in HbsAg will be requested to return for additional follow-up follow-up visits at 3 and 6 months post last dose. Study procedures involve blood draws for pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic, virologic, and safety assessments

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of adverse events in single and multiple oral doses of GS-9620 [ Time Frame: Periodically Day 1 to 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Assessments include adverse events, laboratory abnormalities, 12-lead ECG abnormalities and interval measurements, and vital signs measurements


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of plasma drug concentrations of GS-9620 using non-compartmental methods [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    SAD and MAD Cohorts:serial blood samples will be collected on Day 1 at 0 (pre-dose), 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 48, and 96 hours post-dose.

    Mad Cohorts: serial blood samples will also be collected on Day 8 at 0 (pre-dose), , 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, and 24 hours post-dose.


  • Measurement of pharmacodynamic markers (cytokines and interferon-stimulated genes [ISGs]) [ Time Frame: Days 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Single ascending dose (SAD) Cohorts: Whole blood and serum for pharmacodynamic (PD) assessments (RNA and cytokine analysis) will be drawn on Day 1 at pre-dose, 8, 24 and 48 hours post-dose, and on Days 5 and Day 8

    Multiple ascending dose (MAD) Cohorts: Whole blood and serum for PD assessments (RNA and cytokine analysis) will be drawn on Day 1: Pre-dose and 8 hours Postdose, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 5 Day 8: Pre-dose and 8 hours Post-dose, Day 9, 10, 12, and Day 15


  • Reduction of hepatitis B (HBV) viral load from baseline [ Time Frame: Screening, Baseline, Day 8 or 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    SAD cohort: HBsAg+ levels will be drawn at Day 1: Pre-dose, Day 2, 3, 5, 8 and both Follow-up Visits.

    MAD cohorts: HBsAg+ levels will be drawn at Day 1: Pre-dose, Day 2, 3, 5, Day 8: Pre-Dose, 9, 10, 15, and both Follow-Up Visits.
