Study type
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
NVK031 is an investigational sterile ophthalmic solution for topical administration to the eye.
Mode of Administration: NVK031 (test products A, B, C or D) will be dosed by topical ocular administration.
Dose is only single administration- single drop in each eye.
Observation period is 6hr post-dose.

Study is open-label. Each cohort is assigned a specific concentration of NVK031.

method of allocation used in this form: Cohort dosing with one cohort open at a time and balanced for eye colour (brown vs non-brown).

Primary outcome [1] 325629 0
Proportion of eyes that demonstrate pupil constriction in each dose group.
Outcome is measured by a digital pupilometer.
Timepoint [1] 325629 0
Measured on Day 1(Dosing day) post-dose(1, 2, 3, 4, 6-hour time points).
Secondary outcome [1] 388599 0
Incidence and percentage of ocular and non-ocular adverse events.
It is a composite outcome. Outcomes is assessed via Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA).
Timepoint [1] 388599 0
Measured from baseline till the end of the study (Day 8 post-dose)

Brief summary
The study will be a multi-center, open-label, single-dose, parallel-arm evaluation of the ocular effect and safety of NVK031 in healthy volunteers with brown eyes and non-brown eyes. In this study, four test products of NVK031 will be evaluated. Approximately 44 eligible subjects will be healthy volunteers who are 18 to 55 years old and free of clinically significant ocular pathology. The primary objectives are to identify a MED and to assess the overall effect of NVK031 on the change from baseline (pre-dose at Visit 2) in mesopic pupil diameter for subjects receiving the MED.
