Detailed Description:

GSK2251052 is a member of a novel mechanistic and structural class of antibiotics that inhibits the bacterial enzyme leucyl tRNA synthetase (LeuRS) by forming a boron adduct with tRNA and is currently in development for the treatment of hospital acquired Gramnegative infections (including E. coli, K. pneumoniae, and Enterobacter spp.). This is a multi-part study. Part A is a randomized, open-label, single dose, three-period, incomplete block design to evaluate the relative bioavailability of five oral formulations of GSK2251052. Approximately 24 healthy subjects will be enrolled to receive treatment with GSK2251052 at a dose of 2000 mg and randomized to receive three of the following five formulations: 1) enteric-coated tablet (Treatment A), 2) modified release tablet (Treatment B), 3) enteric-coated powder for oral suspension (Treatment C), 4) immediate release tablet (Treatment D), and 5) oral solution (Treatment E). One or two formulations from Part A will be selected on the basis of acceptable safety and pharmacokinetic criteria for further dose evaluation in Part B. If no formulations are deemed to have the desired PK characteristics, Part B will not be conducted. Part B is a randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalation evaluation of the selected formulation(s) from Part A. Approximately 8 subjects will be randomly assigned to receive GSK2251052 at the planned starting dose of 2000 mg or respective placebo in Period 1. In Period 2, the next dose level will be administered at an increment of 500 mg and/or based on the PK and safety of the preceding period. Additional periods may be conducted with the selected formulation pending acceptable safety in order to achieve target pharmacokinetic concentrations. Part C is a randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled, two-cohort, two period, crossover study of the selected formulation of GSK2251052 in Part B to evaluate its multiple-dose safety and pharmacokinetics in both young and elderly, male and female healthy volunteers. Approximately 16 subjects will be enrolled (8 per cohort with an equal number of females if possible) and will be randomized to receive either active treatment or placebo for 5 days both fasted and with a meal. Cohorts will be evaluated sequentially, with cohort 1 (young) conducted first, and pending acceptable safety, proceeding with an evaluation in cohort 2 (elderly) subsequently. Part D is identical in design and conduct to Part C except it will evaluate the multipledose pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of an immediate release formulation given thrice daily at a dose of 2000 mg. Part D is conditional and will only be conducted if none of the new formulations demonstrate appropriate pharmacokinetics, safety and tolerability. This study will be conducted at a single center in Australia.

  Eligibility

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • AST, ALT, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin ≤1.5xULN (isolated bilirubin >1.5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%.
  • Abnormal LFT tests may be repeated once at the discretion of the Investigator. If an abnormality is repeated, the subject would not be eligible for inclusion.
  • Healthy as determined by a responsible and experienced physician, based on a medical evaluation including medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests and cardiac monitoring. A subject with a clinical abnormality or laboratory parameters outside the reference range for the population being studied may be included only if the Investigator and the GSK Medical Monitor agree that the finding is unlikely to introduce additional risk factors and will not interfere with the study procedures. Subjects with coagulation, reticulocyte, or Hgb values outside the normal range should always be excluded from enrolment.
  • Part A, Part B, and young healthy cohort in Parts C and D: Male or female between 18 and 64 years of age inclusive, at the time of signing the informed consent. Part C and Part D for healthy elderly cohorts: Male or female ≥65 years of age at the time of signing the informed consent.
  • A female subject is eligible to participate if she is of:
  • Non-childbearing potential defined as pre-menopausal females with a documented tubal ligation or hysterectomy; or postmenopausal defined as 12 months of spontaneous amenorrhea [in questionable cases a blood sample with simultaneous follicle stimulating hormone (FSH greater than 40 MlU/ml and estradiol less than 40 pg/ml (<147 pmol/L) is confirmatory).
  • Male subjects with female partners of child-bearing potential must agree to use one of the contraception methods listed in Section 8.1. This criterion must be followed from the time of the first dose of study medication until at least 90 days post-last dose.
  • Body weight ≥50 kg and BMI within the range 19 - 32 kg/m2 (inclusive).
  • Capable of giving written informed consent, which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the consent form.
  • QTc, QTcB or QTcF < 450 msec; or QTc < 480 msec in subjects with Bundle Branch Block.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • A positive pre-study Hepatitis B surface antigen or positive Hepatitis C antibody result within 3 months of screening
  • Current or chronic history of liver disease, or known hepatic or biliary abnormalities (with the exception of Gilbert's syndrome or asymptomatic gallstones).

  • A positive test for HIV antibody.
  • History of regular alcohol consumption within 6 months of the study defined as:
  • an average weekly intake of >21 units for males or >14 units for females. One unit is equivalent to 8 g of alcohol: a half-pint (appromimately 240 ml) of beer, 1 glass (125 ml) of wine or 1 (25 ml) measure of spirits.
  • The subject has participated in a clinical trial and has received an investigational product within the following time period prior to the first dosing day in the current study: 30 days, 5 half-lives or twice the duration of the biological effect of the investigational product (whichever is longer).
  • Exposure to more than four new chemical entities within 12 months prior to the first dosing day.
  • Use of prescription or non-prescription drugs, including vitamins, herbal and dietary supplements (including St John's Wort) within 7 days (or 14 days if the drug is a potential enzyme inducer) prior to the first dose of study medication, unless in the opinion of the Investigator and GSK Medical Monitor the medication will not interfere with the study procedures or compromise subject safety. However, in elderly cohorts of Part C and Part D, use of concomitant medications may be considered on a case by case basis by the PI in consultation with the GSK Medical monitor.
  • History of sensitivity to any of the study medications, or components thereof or a history of drug or other allergy that, in the opinion of the investigator or GSK Medical Monitor, contraindicates their participation.
  • Where participation in the study would result in donation of blood or blood products in excess of 500 mL within a 56 day period.
  • Pregnant females as determined by positive serum or urine hCG test at screening or prior to dosing..
  • Lactating females.
  • Unwillingness or inability to follow the procedures outlined in the protocol14. Subject is mentally or legally incapacitated.

  • Subjects who have asthma or a history of asthma, (e.g., for any FTIH where risk of bronchoconstriction is unknown, or compound specific where risk of bronchoconstriction).
  • Urinary cotinine levels indicative of smoking or history or regular use of tobacco- or nicotine-containing products within 6 months prior to screening.
  • Consumption of red wine, seville oranges, grapefruit or grapefruit juice and/or pummelos, exotic citrus fruits, grapefruit hybrids or fruit juices from 7 days prior to the first dose of study medication.
