COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

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

Purpose of the study
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Following screening, subjects who meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria are to be randomly assigned to receive either GB221 or Herceptin Registered Trademark (1:1 ratio). There will be 16 subjects in each treatment group. Both site staff and subjects will be blinded as to which treatment they are to receive. Pharmacy staff will be responsible for assigning subjects to treatment groups as per the randomisation list provided by Genor Biopharma Co. Ltd. Randomisation will be via a master randomisation list produced by Trident Clinical Research.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Randomisation will be via a master randomisation list produced by INC Research.

Brief summary
This study is a randomised controlled trial to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetics of a single intravenous dose of the new drug GB221, compared to the drug Herceptin (also known as trastuzumab, Registered Trademark) in healthy volunteers. Who is it for? This trial is open to males aged between 18 and 45 years of age, with additional details listed in the Inclusion Criteria section of this form. The trial has been designed to look at how safe and well-tolerated GB221 is when administered to humans intravenously as compared to Herceptin Registered Trademark. The study will also look at how quickly GB221 is absorbed into the blood, how much of it is absorbed and how long it takes to body to remove it (this is known as the study of pharmacokinetics) when compared to Herceptin (Registered Trademark). You will be randomised to one of two intervention arms, where in one arm you will receive a dose of the new investigational drug being tested, GB221, administered as a single IV injection (8mg/kg) over 90 minutes. In the other arm, you will receive Herceptin (trastuzumab) at a dose of 8mg/kg administered as an IV infusion over 90 minutes. 10 weeks following this intervention, you will be assessed on various safety outcomes to determine the usefulness of the drug.
