A Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Single and Multiple Doses of ION547

This is a Phase 1, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, dose escalation study of ION547 in up to 76 participants. Participants will be randomized to receive single and multiple doses of ION547 or placebo SC. The maximum length of participation in the study will be approximately 34 weeks.

Purpose of Study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of single and multiple doses of the antisense inhibitor ION547 administered subcutaneously (SC) in healthy participants.
