A First-in-human, Single-center, Placebo-controlled, Randomized, Double-blind Study in Healthy Subjects to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, Food Effect and Interaction With Midazolam After Oral Single and Multiple Ascending Dosing of KAND145
The goal of this study is to learn more about the study candidate drug, KAND145, when given to healthy volunteers. The study will consist of two parts. In Part 1, the goal is to find out if the study drug KAND145 is safe and tolerable after a single dose. First, a small group of participants will receive a liquid for swallowing containing a low dose of the study drug or a liquid for swallowing that does not contain any drug. If this is safe and tolerable, higher doses will be given to subsequent groups of participants. Additionally, the effect of food on the metabolism of the study drug will be studied. In Part 2, the goal is to find out how the body absorbs, distributes, and gets rid of the study drug when it is taken twice a day for 8 days. As in Part 1, first a liquid for swallowing containing a low dose of the study drug or a liquid for swallowing that does not contain any study drug will be given to a first group of participants; additional doses will then be given to subsequent groups of participants. Additionally, it will be studied if the study drug KAND145 affects the pharmacokinetics of the medicine midazolam.
