The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01319903

Brief Summary:
The novel humanized monoclonal antibody CaCP29 was developed to control the inflammatory response to various stimuli in humans and espacially during sepsis. Purpose of this phase I clinical trial in healthy human males is to investigate various parameters concerning safety and tolerability of CaCP29 and assess pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Drug Safety Biological: CaCP29, a humanized monoclonal antibody Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The acute inflammatory innate host response, as being present during the development of sepsis and various other acute inflammatory diseases, represents a powerful mechanisms which can lead to destruction of host tissue and severe organ dysfunction. CaCP29 was developed to lower the complement mediated acute inflammatory response and thereby control the extend of a strongly activated often times self-destructive inflammatory response by controlling activation of a key inflammatory mechanism.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 26 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Single Ascending, Placebo-controlled, Double-blind Study in Healthy Male Subjects to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of the New Humanized Monoclonal Antibody CaCP29
Study Start Date : March 2011
Primary Completion Date : October 2011
Study Completion Date : October 2011

Intervention Details:
    Biological: CaCP29, a humanized monoclonal antibody
    CaCP29 or placebo single i.v. infusion in ascending doses in healthy human males

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number and extent of changes in safety relevant parameters after injection of CaCP29 [ Time Frame: pre-dose, days 1,2,3,7,14,28 and 70 ]

    Safety relevant parameters include changes from baseline of:

    • cytokine levels over time (IL-6, IL-8, IFN-gamma, TNF-alpha, IL-10)
    • CH50 activity over time
    • standard hematology, clinical chemistry and coagulation laboratory parameters
    • 12-lead ECG
    • vital signs

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assessment of pharmacokinetic parameters of CaCP29 over time [ Time Frame: pre-dose, day 1,2,3,7, 14, 28 and 70 ]
    • Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) of CaCP29
    • Peak Plasma Concentration (Cmax) of CaCP29 and time to reach Cmax
    • terminal phase half-life
    • clearance
    • volume of distribution during the terminal phase

  2. Number of Participants developing anti-CaCP29 antibodies - Immunogenicity [ Time Frame: pre-dose, days 28 and 70 ]
  3. Bioactivity of CaCP29 in human whole blood over time after injection [ Time Frame: pre-dose, days 1,2,3,7,14,28 and 70 ]
