We are conducting a clinical trial for a potential new medicine that could be used to treat people with cancer (cutaneous T-cell lymphoma). In this study, we are asking healthy male volunteers aged 18 to 40 years to test the drug so we can see how well tolerated the medicine is and how long it stays in your body. You will be paid for your time and commitment if you participate in this clinical trial.

If you are interested in participating in the trial:-

This trial will involve you staying with us for a few days (see below) at our private medical facility in London Bridge.

  • You will need to attend a screening appointment so we can check if you are suitable to take part in the trial. At this appointment we perform a number of tests including taking blood samples, checking your heart and carrying out a physical examination to see if it will be OK for you to take part in the study.
  • If results from your screening appointment show you are a good candidate for the trial, you will be invited to take part.
    • This will involve a stay of 4 days / 3 nights in our research unit.
    • The new medicine will be given to you once by injection.
    • After your stay with us you will be required to return for 4 follow-up visits on Days 8, 15, 22, and 29 of the study. This means the whole process takes approximately 6 weeks from your screening visit through to your final visit.
    • In total, if you are included in the study you will come to the research unit 6 times
  • During your stay with us you will receive the single dose of the new medicine and we will conduct a number of assessments (repeats of the tests we did at screening) to check how well you tolerate the drug and to help us understand how your body processes and then gets rid of the drug. We will also perform a biopsy (i.e. remove a small piece of skin from a discrete area of your back or thigh) on Days 1, 2, 8, and 15 of the study.
  • On the four days you are not required to attend the unit, a text messaging system will be used to conduct a check-up assessment until your next visit to the unit.
