We are experiencing 4 week turn-around time in review of submissions and resubmissions. We recommend commencing this process concurrently with your ethics submission and allowing at least 8 weeks for registration to be completed from date of first submission. We currently do not have the capacity to expedite reviews.

Note also there are delays to review of updates. We appreciate your patience.

Study type
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Participants in all cohorts (impaired renal function and matched normal renal function) will receive a single dose of 100 mg Remdesivir on Day 1 in the morning, IV infusion for 30 minutes ± 5 minutes. The participants will be supervised by a health care professional during the infusion and will be confined to the clinic for up to 11 days.

Brief summary
The current study is an open-label, parallel-group, single-dose study. This study will be
conducted in non-COVID-19-infected population and within a confined Phase 1 unit. This
design will allow for more robust evaluation of the effect of reduced renal function on PK of
RDV and metabolites relative to the matched healthy participants with normal renal
function without the potential confounding effects of target disease.
Four cohorts are planned for this study, each enrolling 10 participants with reduced renal
function. Each renally impaired participant will have a matched participant enrolled with normal renal function in the matched group (matched for age, gender, and body mass index [BMI]). Participants with normal renal function can serve as a control for other cohorts, as long as the RDV dose is the same and the matching criteria are met.
