Summary
Brief summary
Avastin (Registered Trademark) is currently used in many countries for the treatment of certain cancers.
The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the similarities in the manner in which a new drug, BAT1706 is distributed around the body compared with European approved and USA licensed Avastin. Who is it for? You may be eligible to join this study if you are a healthy male adult from 18 to 50 years of age with a BMI of 19.0 to 29.0 kg/m2 and body weight of 65 to 100kg. Participants enrolled in this study will be randomly allocated (by chance) to receive either the new BAT1706 drug, USA licensed Avastin or European approved Avastin. All participants will receive a single dose which is adjusted for their weight. Participants will have a number of blood samples taken until Day 99 after the dose and will be monitored for side effects for 99 Days. It is hoped that the findings of this study will provide information regarding the similarity of drug distribution and safety of the new drug BAT1706 compared to currently used Avastin for the treatment of certain types of cancer.
