Brief Summary:
This study will characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of certolizumab pegol (CZP) and evaluate safety of CZP in healthy Chinese subjects. 36 subjects will be randomized to receive one of 3 dose levels of CZP or placebo. The total study duration will be approximately 71-94 days for each subject.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Subjects Biological: Certolizumab Pegol Other: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase 1, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single-center, single escalating dose study in healthy Chinese subjects. The primary objective of the study is to characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of certolizumab pegol (CZP) in healthy Chinese subjects after a single subcutaneous (sc) dose. The secondary objective is to evaluate safety of CZP in healthy Chinese subjects after a single sc dose. 36 healthy Chinese subjects (18 male and 18 female) will be randomized to receive one of 3 dose levels of CZP (100 mg, 200 mg and 400 mg) or placebo given by sc injections. Each dose group begins treatment staggered by a minimum of 14 days. The total duration of the study will be approximately 71 to 94 days for each subject. This includes a 2 to 21 days Screening Period, 1 day of treatment and 70 days Observation Period after administration of a single dose of investigational medicinal product.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time zero up to the last analytically quantifiable concentration (AUC 0-t) [ Time Frame: D1 (pre-dose and 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 hrs post-dose), D2 (24, 36 hrs post-dose), D3 (48 hrs post-dose), D4 (72 hrs post-dose), D5 (96 hrs post-dose), D6, D8, D15, D22, D29, D43, D57 and D70 ]
    AUC 0-t is within a period of 70 days following the dose of CZP, reported in units of μg/mL·h, as determined using the linear trapezoidal rule.

  2. Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: D1 (pre-dose and 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 hrs post-dose), D2 (24, 36 hrs post-dose), D3 (48 hrs post-dose), D4 (72 hrs post-dose), D5 (96 hrs post-dose), D6, D8, D15, D22, D29, D43, D57 and D70 ]
    The maximum observed plasma concentration of CZP.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area under the plasma concentration-time curve from zero up to infinity (AUC) [ Time Frame: D1 (pre-dose and 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 hrs post-dose), D2 (24, 36 hrs post-dose), D3 (48 hrs post-dose), D4 (72 hrs post-dose), D5 (96 hrs post-dose), D6, D8, D15, D22, D29, D43, D57 and D70 ]
    AUC is calculated as AUC=AUC(0-t)+Clast/λz, where Clast is the last quantifiable plasma concentration and λz is the apparent terminal elimination rate constant.

  2. Time to reach a maximum plasma concentration (Tmax) [ Time Frame: D1 (pre-dose and 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 hrs post-dose), D2 (24, 36 hrs post-dose), D3 (48 hrs post-dose), D4 (72 hrs post-dose), D5 (96 hrs post-dose), D6, D8, D15, D22, D29, D43, D57 and D70 ]
    The time of occurrence of Cmax.

  3. Terminal half-life (t½) [ Time Frame: D1 (pre-dose and 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 hrs post-dose), D2 (24, 36 hrs post-dose), D3 (48 hrs post-dose), D4 (72 hrs post-dose), D5 (96 hrs post-dose), D6, D8, D15, D22, D29, D43, D57 and D70 ]
    t½ is reported in units of hours, as determined via simple linear regression (slope=-λz) of natural log(ln) concentration vs time for data points in the terminal phase of the concentration-tim curve. t½ is calculated as ln(2)/λz.
