Type of study

The purpose of the study is to investigate the safety and tolerability of the study medication and how quickly and to what
extent the study medication is absorbed and eliminated in the body (this is called pharmacokinetics [PK]). This study is not intended to improve your health, but is necessary for the further development of the study medication.

The study will only take place after it has been approved by the Independent Ethics Committee.

Setup and duration of the study

The actual study will consist of one period in which you will receive the study medication once administered as a 1 hour infusion. During the study you will stay in our clinical research centre in Groningen (location Martini) for 4 days (3 nights). After your stay in our research facility there will be 4 short visits.

Before the start of the study you will visit the medical screening centre in Groningen (location Martini). Blood samples will be taken regularly during the study.

Risks and medical supervision

All drugs have the potential to cause adverse events. You should be aware that the mentioned adverse effects underneath and possibly other, still unknown adverse effects, may occur during the study.

The study medication is not registered as a drug and has not been given to humans before. The study medication is investigated in animals at dose levels up to 100 mg/kg. This high dose was well tolerated and there was no evidence of harmful effects. The study medication acts by inhibiting inflammation. It is expected that side effects that may occur has something to do with the suppression of the immune system, such as an increased likelihood of infections.
