Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: NX-13 250mg
Dose escalation in Part A will be conducted in 5 cohorts (Cohorts 1 to 5). Seven participants will be enrolled in each cohort and randomized to receive either NX-13 or placebo (ratio 5:2). NX-13 will be administered to Cohort 1 participants at the starting dose of 250 mg and increased in each new cohort. Five nominal dose levels in the range of 250 to 4000 mg have been selected for evaluation in Part A. The starting dose level in Part B will be determined by the SRC based on safety and tolerability data obtained in Part A. A dose level will only be evaluated in Part B if determined to be safe and tolerable in Part A. It is anticipated that 3 dose levels will be evaluated in Part B in a total of 3 cohorts (Cohorts 6 to 8). Seven participants will be enrolled in each cohort and will be randomized to receive a single oral dose of either NX-13 or placebo (ratio 5:2), once daily for seven days. NX-13 dose levels to be evaluated in Part B will be in the range of 500 to 4000 mg.
Drug: NX-13 250 mg

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Specific assessments to evaluate the incidence, severity and relationship of adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]
    Specific assessments to evaluate treatment safety and tolerability include the following: the incidence, severity, and relationship of AEs

  2. Incidence of abnormal Physical examination findings [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]
    Specific assessments to evaluate treatment safety and tolerability include the following: physical examinations

  3. Measurement of body weight (Part B only) [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]
    Specific assessments to evaluate treatment safety and tolerability include the following: measurement of body weight (Part B only)

  4. Incidence of abnormal clinical laboratory test results [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]
    Specific assessments to evaluate treatment safety and tolerability include the following: change from baseline in clinical laboratory parameters (ie, hematology, serum chemistry, coagulation, and urinalysis parameters)

  5. Incidence of abnormal ECG results [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]
    Specific assessments to evaluate treatment safety and tolerability include the following: 12-lead ECG

  6. Incidence of abnormal vital signs [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]
    Specific assessments to evaluate treatment safety and tolerability include the following: vital signs


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Plasma concentration of NX-13 [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]
    Blood samples for pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis will be collected prior to dosing and at several timepoints up to 48 hours post-dose. Plasma concentrations of NX-13 will be determined at each timepoint and used to calculate PK parameters.

  2. Urine concentration of NX-13 [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]
    Urine samples for analysis of NX-13 concentrations may also be collected prior to dosing and within 0-48 hours post-dose.

  3. Fecal concentration of NX-13 [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]
    Fecal samples for analysis of NX-13 concentrations may also be collected prior to dosing and within 24-48 hours post-dose.

  4. Measurement of NX-13 levels in stool [ Time Frame: Part A: 37 days Part B: 44 days ]

    A small stool sample will be collected pre and post-dose for the measurement of calprotectin in the feces.

    Changes in fecal calprotectin levels following administration of NX-13 will be evaluated. Elevated fecal calprotectin indicates the migration of neutrophils to the intestinal mucosa, which occurs during intestinal inflammation.
