A Study of Ramucirumab (LY3009806) in Healthy Participants


This study evaluates a new formulation of ramucirumab, a drug approved for several types of cancer.

In this study of healthy participants, a small amount of ramucirumab will be given by injection either into a vein or just under the skin. Study doctors will measure the amount of ramucirumab in the bloodstream.

Side effects and tolerability will be documented. The study will last for about 16 weeks for each participant, including screening and follow up. Screening is required within 28 days prior to entering the study.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Number of Participants with One or More Serious Adverse Event(s) (SAEs) Considered by the Investigator to be Related to Study Drug Administration
    • Time Frame: Baseline through Day 90
    • A summary of SAEs and other non-serious adverse events (AEs), regardless of causality, will be reported in the Reported Adverse Events module
  • Percentage of Participants with an Injection Site Reaction (ISR[s])
    • Time Frame: Day 1 Predose through Day 90
    • Percentage of Participants with an ISR(s)
  • Pharmacokinetics (PK): Area Under the Concentration Versus Time Curve (AUC) of Ramucirumab
    • Time Frame: Baseline through Day 90
    • PK: AUC of Ramucirumab
  • PK: Maximum Concentration (Cmax) of Ramucirumab
    • Time Frame: Baseline through Day 90
    • PK: Cmax of Ramucirumab
