  • Safety and tolerability of the administered repeated doses of elsiglutide (ZP1846) will be evaluated [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 32 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Safety will be evaluated by monitoring:

    • Physical examination
    • Vital signs
    • Clinical laboratory parameters (hematology, blood chemistry, urinalysis)
    • 12-lead ECG
    • AEs
    • Immunogenicity testing in a subset of patients
  • PK of elsiglutide will be evaluated [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The followin standard PK parameters will be evaluated:

    Tmax, Cmax, AUC0-t, AUC0-24, AUC0-∞, t1/2Z, λZ, CL/F, VZ/F, the effect of multiple dosing will be evaluated (accumulation ratio). Blood sampling for PK will be performed at: pre-dose, 2h, 4, 6, 12, 24 h post-dose

Proof-of-Concept Study in Cancer Patients to Assess Efficacy of Elsiglutide in Preventing Chemotherapy-Induced Diarrhea
Phase II, Double-blind, Randomized, Two-stage, Placebo-controlled Proof of Concept Study in Colorectal Cancer Patients Receiving 5-FU Based Chemotherapy to Assess the Efficacy of Elsiglutide (ZP1846)Administered s.c. in the Prevention of Chemotherapy Induced Diarrhea(CID)

The main objective of this study will be to obtain data on the efficacy of elsiglutide in preventing Chemotherapy Induced Diarrhea (CID) in patients with colorectal cancer receiving 5-FU based chemotherapy (FOLFOX4 or FOLFIRI regimen) in comparison to placebo.
