  Purpose

A Phase 1, single-center, open-label, single arm, baseline-controlled (for safety) study in normal volunteers. Study will determine biodistribution and excretion of the radioactive drug substance and evaluate the safety and tolerability of 99mTC-Etarfolatide in normal volunteers.


Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy
Drug: Etarfolatide (EC20)
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: A Single-Center Phase I Clinical Study to Evaluate The Biodistribution and Safety of 99mTC-Etarfolatide (EC20) in Normal Volunteers

Further study details as provided by Endocyte:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Biodistribution of Radioactive Drug Substance [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To track biodistribution of 99mTc-EC20 injection, blood and urine samples will be collected at set times within the first 24hrs post 99mTc-EC20 injection for all patients and radioactivity measured.

  • Excretion of Radioactive Drug Substance [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To track excretion of 99mTc-EC20 injection, blood and urine samples will be collected at set times within the first 24hrs post 99mTc-EC20 injection for all patients and radioactivity measured.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of 99mTc-Etarfolatide in Normal Volunteers [ Time Frame: 4 days post-injection of EC20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Asses any adverse events and serious adverse events experienced by volunteers.

  • Tolerability of 99mTc-Etarfolatide in Normal Volunteers [ Time Frame: 4 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Asses any adverse events and serious adverse events experienced by volunteers.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of SPECT images of Normal Volunteers with or without injection of Folic Acid [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Comparison made of SPECT images taken of volunteers who received folic acid injection prior to 99mTc-EC20 injection and those who did not receive folic acid injection.

    Readability of scans, background "noise" as well as evaluation of any other differences will be noted.
