Purpose:

Designed as a single center, two-part, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of RJX in healthy participants.


Study summary:

Part 1 is designed as a Single Ascending Dose (SAD) escalation study with 6 cohorts. Participants will undertake a screening visit between Day -21 and Day -1 to determine eligibility in the study. Those participants that meet the eligibility criteria will be admitted to the study site on the day prior to dosing (Day -1). Participants will receive a single dose of investigational product via IV infusion on Day 1. The first cohort will include the initial dosing of a sentinel group. The remaining participants in Cohort 1 will be dosed if, in the opinion of the investigator or delegate, there are no significant safety concerns identified in the sentinel participants within the first 24 hours after administration of the dose. Participants will be confined to the study site from Day -1 to Day 2 (24 hours post dose) and then required to return to the study site on Day 5 for a final follow up visit. Safety and PK assessments will be performed at selected time points throughout the study. Part 2 is designed as a Multiple Ascending Dose (MAD) escalation study with 3 cohorts. The MAD arm of the study will commence in parallel with Cohort 6 of Part 1 following completion and review of safety and PK findings for Cohorts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 in Part 1. Participants will undertake a screening visit between Day -21 and Day -1 to determine eligibility in the study. Those participants that meet the eligibility criteria will be admitted to the study site on the day prior to dosing (Day -1). Participants will be randomly assigned to receive 1 of 3 proposed doses of investigational product via IV infusion every day for 7 days.Participants will be confined to the study site from Day -1 to Day 8 (24 hours post the final dose on Day 7) and then return to the study site on Day 12 for a final follow up visit. Safety and PK assessments will be performed at selected time points throughout the study.


Criteria:

Given written informed consent prior to any study procedures being performed Exclusion Criteria: 1. Have a history of clinically relevant cardiovascular disease, cancer, respiratory, hepatic, renal, gastrointestinal, endocrine (diabetes), hematological, or neurological disorders. Cohort 6 only - elderly participants with well controlled hypercholesterolemia on a stable dose of statin therapy or well controlled hypertension on a stable dose of antihypertensive medication(s), excluding diuretics, are allowed in Cohort 6 per the clinical judgment of the investigator. 2. Have impaired renal function (defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate <90 cc/min/1.73m2 Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-Epi) creatinine equation at screening); 3.

Participants will be excluded for using any of the following medication: - aspirin, multivitamins/vitamins or mineral preparations within 14 days prior to investigational product administration or 24 hours post the last infusion; - prescription, herbal or over the counter medications within 14 days of investigational product administration, with the exception of: - simple analgesics such as paracetamol, excluding aspirin - oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs - thyroid treatment, estrogen replacement therapy - hormonal contraception - Statins and anti-hypertensives are permitted for elderly participants in Cohort 6 (Part 1) - see inclusion criteria #1 12.
