Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. Incidence rate of drug allergy following ID injection of the IP [2 days]

    Subject developing either immediate or delayed allergic reaction are considered to have drug allergy.

  2. Safety and tolerability assessment following SC injection of the IP [4 weeks]

    Incident rate of adverse events, including systemic and administration site-related adverse events.

Eligibility Criteria


Ages Eligible for Study:
19 Years and Older
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Inclusion Criteria:

  • Female subjects or male subjects' female partners who have received a sterilization procedure (removal of ovary and/or uterus)

  • Subjects who have agreed to practice total abstinence during the study period [For female subjects, periodic abstinence (e.g., ovulation, symptothermal, or post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception.]

  • When female subjects or male subjects' female partners are women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) who have not received a sterilization procedure, they must agree to use of following contraceptive methods:

  • Hormones (implantable, patch, and oral)

  • Intrauterine device (IUD)

  1. WOCBP or females who have the last menstrual period within 12 months must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test at Screening (Visit 1).

  2. Subjects who have voluntarily decided to take part in the study and able to comply with the study protocol

  3. Subjects who have no tattoo, acne, dermatitis, pigmentation or lesion on the administration site and who have no damage in the skin, so that they can receive the IP and allergy test

  4. Subjects determined eligible for the study through Screening tests (vital signs, physical examination, medical history and surgery history, ECG, and laboratory tests)
