Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Treatment: Drugs - EHP-101 Liquid single dose
Treatment: Drugs - EHP-101 Liquid multiple doses
Treatment: Drugs - Matching placebo

Experimental: Single dose study part - there will be 7 cohorts of healthy volunteers dosed with single doses of EHP-101 (7 planned dose levels) or with placebo and 1 potential additional cohort (also dosed with single dose of EHP-101 or placebo)

Experimental: Multiple dose study part - there will be 3 cohorts of healthy volunteers dosed with multiple doses of EHP-101 (3 planned dose levels) or placebo and 1 potential additional cohort (also dosed with multiple doses of EHP-101 or placebo)


Treatment: Drugs: EHP-101 Liquid single dose
One single oral administration with EHP-101 liquid formulation. The doses will be ascending per cohort from 0.91 mg to 200 mg. The initially planned once daily dose regimen may be modified by the Safety Review Committee based on emerging PK data, eg, assigned dose levels may be divided into 2 doses administered 12 hours apart (twice a day).

Treatment: Drugs: EHP-101 Liquid multiple doses
One single daily administration with EHP-101 liquid formulation during 7 consecutive days. The doses will be ascending per cohort. Each ascending level will not exceed the tested dose levels in the single dose part of the study. The initially planned once daily dose regimen may be modified by the Safety Review Committee based on emerging PK data, eg, assigned dose levels may be divided into 2 doses administered 12 hours apart (twice a day)

Treatment: Drugs: Matching placebo
