Summary

The objective of this study is to investigate the pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of AK159 administered to healthy postmenopausal women.

Clinical Details

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics/Dynamics Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Basic Science

Primary outcome:

Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) of teriparatide

Peak Plasma Concentration (Cmax) of teriparatide

Number of Participants with Adverse Events, Vital signs, ECG parameters, and 24-hour ECG holter recording (for Part 2 of the study).

Secondary outcome:

Change from Baseline in bone turnover markers within 24 hrs at each administration

Residual teriparatide in the patch after application

Detailed description: This study consists of Part 1 and Part 2. Part 1 will be conducted according to a single-centre, randomized, single-dose, 3-period, 5-treatment alternating crossover design in two groups of healthy post-menopausal women The pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of a single dose of AK159 (4 levels) will be investigated versus teriparatide acetate for injection as a control. Part 2 will be conducted according to a multiple-centre, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, repeated dose parallel design of healthy post-menopausal women The pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of AK159 (4 levels) for 8 weeks will be investigated versus teriparatide acetate for injection and placebo as controls. Pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability following long-term application will also be investigated.
