Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: April 4, 2014)
  • Pharmacokinetics of AG-348 [ Time Frame: 4 days ]
    Descriptive statistics will be used to summarize PK parameters of AG-348 for each dose group and, where appropriate, for the entire population. Standard non-compartmental PK parameters will be calculated from individual plasma concentration data.
  • Pharmacodynamic (PD) relationship of AG-348 and metabolic biomarkers [ Time Frame: 4 days ]
    The potential relationship between AG-348 and metabolic biomarkers will be explored with descriptive and graphical methods. Details on the evaluation of exploratory analyses of pyruvate kinase (PKR) activity and other potential PD biomarkers will be described.

Brief Title  ICMJE A Phase I Study of AG-348 in Healthy Volunteers
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase I, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Single Ascending Dose, Safety, Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Study of Orally Administered AG-348 in Healthy Volunteers
Brief Summary This is a dose escalation study that will be conducted in healthy volunteers. Multiple cohorts of volunteers will receive ascending oral doses of AG-348 to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a single oral dose of AG-348, the pharmacokinetics (PK) of a single dose of AG-348, and the pharmacodynamic profile of AG-348 with specific biomarkers assessed in the blood.

  • Subjects must agree to refrain from strenuous exercise prior to admission through final visit.
  • Subjects must refrain from use of alcohol starting 7 days prior to admission through final visit.
  • Subjects must agree not to donate blood products for duration of study participation.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects who have previously received AG-348.
