Details and patient eligibility


Hemay005 is a novel phosphodiesterase type 4(PDE4) inhibitor being developed for the treatment of psoriasis. This study is the first administration of Hemay005 in humans to establish the initial safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetic profile following single doses of Hemay005. A total of approximately 44 subjects will be randomized into 6 cohorts(10mg, 20mg, 40mg, 80mg, 120mg, 180mg), approximately 8 healthy subjects will be enrolled (6 active and 2 placebo) at each dose cohort by sentinel method(1 active and 1 placebo,5 active and 1 placebo), with the exception of 10mg (4 active) cohort. This study includes an 28-day Screening Period, a 1-day Treatment Period, and an End of Study Visit occurring approximately 11days (±3 days) after study drug administration.
