Description of intervention(s) / exposure
MET642 is a tablet that is administered orally.
In Part A, eligible participants will be assigned to 1 of 8 groups based on when they participate in the study. Within each group, participants are randomly assigned to receive a single dose of MET642 or placebo. Doses range from 5mg to 300mg and will be determined and adjusted based on emerging data.
In Part B, eligible participants will be assigned to 1 of 6 groups based on when they participate in the study. Within each group, participants are randomly assigned to receive daily doses of MET642 or placebo for 2 weeks. Doses for will range from 5mg to 150mg and will be determined and adjusted based on emerging data.
Participants will only participate in either Part A or Part B, not both.
All doses will be administered in the clinic by qualified professionals.
