Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Long Acting Human Growth Hormone (hGH) Product (MOD-4023) in Healthy Caucasian and Japanese Volunteers

Official Title

A Randomized, Double-blind, Vehicle-controlled, Parallel Group, Single Dose Trial to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Three Doses of Long Acting HGH Product (MOD-4023) in Healthy Caucasian and Japanese Volunteers

Brief Summary

      The study is a Phase 1, randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled, single-dose, three dose
      levels study in healthy Caucasian and Japanese male volunteers.

      Following a 4-week screening period, eligible male subjects will be stratified by ethnic
      group and will be randomized to one of six groups. On dosing day, designated as Day 1, each
      subject will receive single SC injection of study medication according to group allocation
      and will be followed up for a month for safety monitoring.
