As quoted in the press release:

“The start of clinical trials for CK-274 marks an important milestone in our continuing innovation of potential sarcomere-directed medicines,” said Fady I. Malik, M.D., Ph.D., Cytokinetics’ Executive Vice President of Research & Development. “Our scientists pioneered this emerging area of muscle pharmacology and have now advanced a next-generation drug candidate that was optimized for pharmacokinetic properties and therapeutic index. This first trial will elaborate on CK-274 and its potential to be best-in-class and we look forward to reporting data in 2019.”

The primary objective of this Phase 1 double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-part, single and multiple ascending dose trial is to assess the safety and tolerability of single and multiple oral doses of CK-274. The study design includes eight single ascending dose cohorts and three multiple ascending dose cohorts, with eight healthy subjects per cohort. Additional objectives include describing the pharmacokinetics (PK) of CK-274 and its pharmacodynamic effects (PD) as measured by echocardiography, as well as characterizing the relationship between the two with regards to cardiac function.
