Please be advised that due to the high volume of submissions, the ANZCTR is currently experiencing delays in processing submissions from those outside of Australia and New Zealand. As the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first. International submissions should allow additional time for registration. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
All consented patients would be screened up to 14 days prior to randomization. At screening the patients will be assessed on their suitability to enter the study. Assessments preformed include: medical history, physical exam, laboratory assessment, ECG, concomitant and adverse events. Eligable subjects will be randomized.

Patients randomised to receive BMS-943539 will be administered the study drug via IV at day 1 and day 15 at different dose levels according to cohort. Cohort 1 will receive 0.1mg/kg. Cohort 2 will receive 0.3mg/Kg. Cohort 3 will receive 1.0mg/Kg

Patients will be observed after the 1st infusion on day 1 (observation period 1) and also after the second infusion day 15 (observation period 2).

After all the subjects in Cohort 1 have completed their Day 29 visits; the PK findings have been assessed (expected up to 4 weeks); and assuming criteria surpassing the defined no observed adverse event level (NOAEL) have not been met (see below), Cohort 2 will begin the study. Similarly, Cohort 3 will not begin until completion and PK assessment of Cohort 2, assuming the NOAEL has not been surpassed.
The NOAEL will be defined as the dose level 1 level below the lowest dose level in which either a) 2 or more actively treated (non-placebo) subjects experience any grade 2 National Cancer Institute (NCI; US)-Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE v4.03) BMS-943539-related toxicity or b) at least 1 actively treated subject experiences any grade greater than or equal to 3 BMS-943539-related toxicity.

The NOAEL will be the highest dose level completed if neither of these criteria is met. In the case that NOAEL criteria are surpassed in Cohorts 2 or 3, the next lower cohort will be declared the NOAEL and all remaining subjects
will be treated at the NOAEL, such that a total of 37 subjects (28 receiving BMS and 9 receiving placebo)
are treated in the study. This is in order to maintain the statistical precision sought to support the pharmacokinetic (PK) and immunogenicity research hypotheses, and to support an adequate number of subjects with safety observations. If the dose level of Cohort 1 is found to exceed the NOAEL, then no additional subjects will be dosed and the study will terminate.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 259667 0
To assess the average time it takes for BMS-943539 to lose half of its pharmacologic activity (mean T-Half) following infusions on day 1 and day 15 in healthy male volunteers.

The mean T-Half will be assessed using Pharmacokinetic sampling and analysis.
Timepoint [1] 259667 0
PK samples will be collected on days 1 and 15 before infusion, 0.5 (mid-infusion) and 1 (end infusion), 1.5, 2, 3, 5, 7, 24, 48, 72, 96 or 120, and 168 hours after the start of each infusion. Also single random sample for BMS-943539 plasma concentration on after infusion on days 29, 36, 43, 50, and 57.
Secondary outcome [1] 266358 0
To assess the safety and tolerability of BMS-943539.

The following assessments will be used to determine the safety and tolerability; medical history, physical exam, vital signs, ECG, and safety laboratory assessments (biochemistry, haematology, coagulation panel, urinalysis).

Screening, day -1, day 1-6, day 8, day 14-20, day 22, day 29, day 36, day 43, day 50, day 57
Secondary outcome [2] 266365 0
To assess the immunogenicity of BMS-943539

Autoimmunity tests (ANA, C3, C4) will be performed.
Samples will be collected for the assessment of anti-BMS-943539 antibodies (anti-drug antibodies; ADA). Subjects with positive ADA results at Day 57 will be asked to return for follow-up assessment approximately every 28 days for ADA, ANA, C3, and C4 testing and immunological AE assessment until resolved, judged to be chronic or stable by the investigator, or the subject lost to follow-up.

Secondary outcome [3] 266366 0
To assess the effects of BMS-943539 on PR and QTc intervals

All ECGs will be 12-lead ECG recorded with the subject in the supine position. All ECGs are to be single assessments. Each individual ECG assessment must include assessment of heart rate and PR, QRS, QT, and QTcF (or QTcB) intervals. ECGs should be obtained prior to performing PK sample collection at the matching times.

Treatment
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Subjects will be allocated a randomization number by blinded site staff when they are randomized onto the study. This randomization number will be provided to the unblinded pharmacist who will have access to the randomization code list. The subjects randomization number will coincide with the randomization schedule that the unblinded pharmacist has and which describes which infusion the subject will receive - BMS-943539 or placebo. Each randomized subject will be assigned an infusion ( BMS-943539 or placebo) based on the information contained in the randomization schedule. Allocation is not concealed to the pharmacist but it is concealed to all other study staff including the patient.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
A randomisation code will be generated by an unblinded independent statistician. This randomisation code list will be provided to the unblinded pharmacist. When the patient is randomised into the study, the blinded study team will assign each patient a randomisation number. The unblinded pharmacist will use the assigned randomisation number and the randomisation code list to determine the subject treatment assignment.

Summary
Brief summary
BMS-943539 is a non-therapeutic Adnectin (Trademark) with binding affinity for human serum albumin (HSA). It is intended to serve as an albumin binder to extend the serum half-life (T-HALF) when integrated into a single polypeptide chain with a separate therapeutic Adnectin or other protein that would otherwise be rapidly eliminated. Cohorts of subjects will be treated with 0.1, 0.3, or 1.0 mg/kg BMS-943539 or placebo once every two weeks for a total of two drug administrations.
