About the study

This study is the first administration of GSK3858279 in humans and will be conducted in two parts: Part A will consist of a single ascending dose escalation design to evaluate safety, tolerability, PK, TE and immunogenicity of either a single intravenous (IV) or a single subcutaneous (SC) dose. Approximately 48 healthy participants will be enrolled in 6 cohorts and randomized to 3:1 ratio (GSK3858279 or placebo). Part B will evaluate safety, tolerability, efficacy (pain), PK, TE and immunogenicity after repeat SC dosing. Approximately 50 OA participants will be randomized in a parallel group design to receive either GSK3858279 or placebo in a 1:1 ratio.

Who can take part?

You may be eligible to participate in the study if you meet the following criteria:

  4. basis) and agree to remain abstinent OR must agree to use contraception/barrier as detailed below: agree to use a male condom and should also be advised of the benefit for a female partner to use a highly effective method of contraception as a condom may break or leak when having sexual intercourse with a woman of childbearing potential who is not currently pregnant. - A female participant is eligible to participate if she is of non-reproductive potential. - Capable of giving signed informed consent.

  9. basis) and agree to remain abstinent or must agree to use contraception/barrier as detailed: Agree to use a male condom and should also be advised of the benefit for a female partner to use a highly effective method of contraception as a condom may break or leak when having sexual intercourse with a woman of childbearing potential who is not currently pregnant. - A female participant is eligible to participate if she is of non-reproductive potential. - Capable of giving signed informed consent.
