  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to establish bioequivalence of paliperidone ER tablets manufactured at Gurabo as compared to paliperidone ER tablets manufactured at Vacaville, administered as a single dose of 12 mg under fasted conditions to healthy male volunteers, and to assess the safety and tolerability of both formulations.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To establish bioequivalence of paliperidone ER tablets manufactured at Gurabo compared with paliperidone ER tablets manufactured at Vacaville, administered as a single oral dose of 12 mg under fasted conditions

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To asses the safety and tolerability of both formulations

Enrollment: 72
Study Start Date: March 2007
Study Completion Date: May 2007
Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, open-label, 2-way crossover study in healthy male adults.The study consists of a screening phase and an open label treatment phase during which each patient will receive the 2 treatments of the study drug separated by a washout period of 7 to 14 days. Treatment A will consist of a single oral dose of 12-mg paliperidone ER, tablets manufactured at Gurabo, administered under fasted condition. Treatment B will consist of a single oral dose of 12-mg paliperidone ER, tablets manufactured at Vacaville, administered under fasted condition. Blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis will be collected at pre-dose and for 96 hours post-dose for each period. As a change in manufacturing site will take place, bioequivalence between 12 mg tablets (highest dose strength) from the 2 production sites (Gurabo [Puerto Rico, USA] and Vacaville [California, USA]) needs to be demonstrated. This pivotal bioequivalence study is designed to examine the pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of paliperidone ER manufactured at Gurabo in comparison with paliperidone ER manufactured at Vacaville

Two single oral doses of paliperidone ER 12 mg

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Clinically significant abnormal physical examination, vital signs or 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG) at screening or at admission to the study center
  • At screening, has signs of autonomic dysfunction as indicated by a decrease of > 20 mmHg in systolic blood pressure or a decrease of > 10 mmHg in diastolic blood pressure after standing for at least 2 minutes that is not associated with an increase of >15 beats per minute (bpm) in heart rate
  • Bradycardia (heart rate <40 bpm) as determined by screening 12-lead ECG
  • Use of any prescription or nonprescription medication (including vitamins and herbal supplements), except for paracetamol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen, within 14 days before the first dose of the study drug is scheduled

  • Known history of drug-induced dystonia or Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome
  • Positive test for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibodies, hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), or hepatitis C antibodies
  • History of smoking or use of nicotine-containing substances within the previous 2 months, as determined by medical history or volunteer's verbal report
