Please note the ANZCTR will be unattended from Friday 20 December 2019 for the holidays. The Registry will re-open on Tuesday 07 January 2020. Submissions and updates will not be processed during that time.

Please be advised that as the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first. International submissions should allow additional time for registration. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Study type
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Healthy volunteer study with single dose and multiple ascending doses:

For the SAD, VE-01902 will be administered to fasted patients as an enterically coated oral tablet or as an oral suspension starting at 45mg/kg/day for 1 day of dosing. There will be 6 cohorts, with an option to add a 7th if a certain PD threshold has not been met, and there were no serious safety signals. The second cohort will be used to investigate the differences between the different tablet strengths. Dosing levels will be adaptively decided after each dosing of a cohort via reviewing the PD and safety data by the safety review committee (SRC). There will be a maximum increase of 3x. Once a cohort hits a certain biologically relevant dose, a portion of subjects from a single cohort will be brought back for the same dose of drug, after a 9 day washout period. This dose will be administered after a high-fat breakfast to assess the effect of food on the drug. The ensuing SAD cohorts will be dosed in a fasted or fed state, depending on these results. The maximum dose will be decided by reviewing PD and safety data, passed down from the SRC.

For the MAD, VE-01902 will be administered, to either fasted or fed patients depending on the food effect cohort, as an enterically coated oral tablet or as an oral suspension starting at a dose level decided from the SAD's available data, for 7 consecutive days of once-a-day dosing in the first MAD cohort. After the first cohort, the dose will be administered for 5 consecutive days of once-a-day dosing. There will be 4 cohorts, with an option to add a 5th if a certain PD threshold has not been met, and there were no serious safety signals. The maximum dose will be decided by reviewing PD and safety data, passed down from the safety review committee.

Adherence will be monitored through visual confirmation of dosing.
Intervention code [1] 301641 0
Treatment: Drugs
Comparator / control treatment
Placebo, an enterically coated oral tablet composed of microcrystalline cellulose and mannitol, will be administered in both the SAD and MAD phases of the study. For participants in both the SAD and MAD in cohort sizes of six, two participants will be allocated to placebo and four participants will be allocated to active. For participants in both the SAD and MAD in cohort sizes of twelve, three participants will be allocated to placebo and ten participants will be allocated to active. If the participants are in an oral suspension cohort, the placebo will be crushed placebo tablets suspended in water.

5. Routine laboratory screening tests as specified below should be within normal limits or any abnormalities should be not clinically significant, as determined by the investigator at screening and day -1; however, results of the coagulation panel, platelet count and hemoglobin should be within normal limits, and liver function tests (specifically, total bilirubin, ALT and AST) should not exceed 1.5x the upper limit of normal;
6. Negative screen for alcohol and drugs of abuse at screening and admission;
7. Non-smokers or casual smoker who uses no more than 10 cigarettes (or equivalent quantity of any other nicotine containing products e.g. cigars, chewing tobacco, snuff, vaping, e-cigarettes, and etc.) per week. Subject must abstain from smoking 5 days prior to admission and throughout the entire study period, and test negative on Day -1 for urine cotinine test. ;
Female participants:
8. Must be of non-child-bearing potential by surgical sterilization or postmenopausal (no menses for the previous 12 months without alternative medical cause and confirmed by FSH testing),
9. Must not be pregnant, breast feeding, or planning to become pregnant AND must be practicing both a highly effective method of birth control for at least 30 days after the last dose of study drug and a barrier method (such as condom use). Highly-effective methods of birth control include: hormonal contraception (e.g. birth control pill, injection, implant, transdermal patch or vaginal ring), an intrauterine device, tubal ligation or a sole partner with a vasectomy. Progestin-based contraception that suppresses ovulation (e.g. Depo-Provera) is allowed. Estrogen-containing contraceptives that provide suppression of ovulation may be allowed. However, high-dose estrogen (greater than 35 microgram ethinyloestradiol)-containing contraceptives are not allowed in this study. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist contraceptives are not allowed in this study. Abstinence from penile-vaginal intercourse for the above duration is acceptable, if it is consistent with the usual and preferred lifestyle of the participant;
