Baltimore, Maryland 21225


Purpose:

Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalation study in healthy male and female volunteers. Subjects will be randomly assigned to 1 of 7 treatment cohorts (Cohorts 1 - 7) of 8 subjects each, to receive either Q203 or placebo (6 active treatment : 2 placebo) in a fasting state. Dose escalation to the next cohort may be considered when at least 6 out of 8 subjects, in a cohort, completes all procedures and none of the subjects has a clinically significant adverse event (AE) that is being followed, or at the discretion of the PI if no drug-related serious adverse events (SAEs) have occurred. A food effect cohort will be enrolled to test administration of Q203 in a fed state, at 100 mg dose level (this dose level may change based on PK analysis results). Subjects who received 100mg dose in a fasting state will return and receive the second dose, with food. Subjects will be followed up for AEs, SAE or pregnancy for 30 days postdrug administration.


Study summary:

Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalation study in healthy male and female volunteers. Subjects will be randomly assigned to 1 of 7 treatment cohorts (Cohorts 1 - 7) of 8 subjects each, to receive either Q203 or placebo in a fasting state. Every attempt will be made to include at least 2 females in each cohort, at least one of whom will be assigned to receive Q203. Dose escalation to the next cohort may be considered when at least 6 out of 8 subjects, in a cohort, completes all procedures and none of the subjects has a clinically significant adverse event (AE) that is being followed, or at the discretion of the PI if no drug-related SAEs have occurred. A food effect cohort will be enrolled to test administration of Q203 in a fed state, at 100 mg dose level (this dose level may change based on PK analysis results). Subjects who received 100mg dose in a fasting state will return and receive the second dose, with food. In this cohort, all eight subjects will proceed to receive either Q203 or placebo in a six to two ratio (six active treatment : 2 placebo). Every attempt will be made to include at least 2 females in this cohort, at least one of whom will be assigned to receive Q203. Subjects will be followed up for AEs, SAE or pregnancy for 30 days postdrug administration.

Resting heart rate (HR) during screening or baseline ECG fewer than 50 beats per minute (bpm). 8. History of seizures. 9. History of drug (including amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine, opiates, phencyclidines, and cannabinoids) or alcohol abuse or addiction within the past 2 years or, if male, consumes more than 28 units of alcohol per week or, if female, consumes more than 21 units of alcohol per week (1 unit of alcohol equals 250 mL of beer, 100 mL of wine, or 25 mL of spirits). 10. Any history of abnormal pulmonary function (e.g., asthma or related respiratory illnesses). 11. Current or recent (within the past 3 months) use of tobacco or other nicotine-containing product or positive results for nicotine testing at screening or check-in. 12.

Any prior exposure to Q203 or participation in another investigational drug study within the previous 30 days before screening. 16. Any donation of blood, plasma, or platelets or significant loss of blood within 56 days before dosing. 17. Laboratory results outside the normal range, if considered clinically significant by the PI or his designee. 18. Hemoglobin concentration < LLN. 19. Any condition that might interfere with the absorption of the study medications. 20. History of hypersensitivity or idiosyncratic reaction to any of the products administered during the study. 21. History of unexplained syncope or fainting from the collection of blood, i.e., autonomic dysfunction. 22. History of hypotension, including orthostatic hypotension. 23.
