  Purpose

The aim of this study is to determine the bioequivalence of 5 x 0.1 milligram (mg) capsules compared to 1 x 0.5 mg capsule of dutasteride in healthy male subjects. The results of this study are expected to support registration applications for androgenetic alopecia (AGA) in Japan and other international markets.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Serum pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters: maximum observed concentration (Cmax) and Area under the concentration-time curve from time zero to last time of quantifiable concentration within a subject (AUC[0-t]) for dutasteride [ Time Frame: From pre-dose up to 72 hrs ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serum PK samples will be collected pre-dose and 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, and 72 hours post dose for both treatment periods


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to Cmax (tmax) for dutasteride as data permit [ Time Frame: From pre-dose up to 72 hrs ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serum PK samples will be collected pre-dose and 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 6 8, 10, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, and 72 hours post dose for both treatment periods

  • Safety and tolerability of all treatments as assessed by vital signs, electrocardiogram (ECG) measurements, review of adverse events (AEs) and clinical laboratory safety data [ Time Frame: From screening till Follow-up visit (10-14 days post-last dose)& 50-54 days post-last dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Vital signs will include pulse rate and blood pressure measurements.12-lead ECGs will be obtained at the planned time point. An AE is any untoward medical occurrence temporally associated with the use of the medicinal product, whether or not considered associated with the product. Clinical laboratory tests will include hematology, clinical chemistry and urinalysis parameters.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Sequence AB
Subjects will be hospitalized to the clinical unit on the evening of Day -1. All subjects will receive 1 x 0.5mg oral dose of dutasteride (Sequence A), in the morning; Subjects will remain in the clinical unit until completion of all assessments at 24 hours post-dose on Day 2 including collection of the 24 hour post-dose PK sample. Subjects will return to the unit for the remaining PK samples at 36, 48 and 72 hours. The subject will receive or 5 x 0.1mg oral dose of dutasteride (Sequence B) in similar fashion as that of Sequence A. The two treatment sequences will be separated by a minimum washout period of 28 days to ensure that dutasteride is effectively eliminated from the subject between dosing occasions.
Drug: GI198745 0.1 mg
It is available as soft gelatin capsule to be administered as 5 X 0.1 mg capsules as single oral dose with approximately 250 mL of water.
Drug: GI198745 0.5 mg
It is available as soft gelatin capsule to be administered as 1 X 0.5 mg capsules as single oral dose with approximately 250 mL of water.
Experimental: Sequence BA
Subjects will be hospitalized to the clinical unit on the evening of Day -1. All subjects will receive 5 x 0.1mg oral dose of dutasteride (Sequence B) in the morning; Subjects will remain in the clinical unit until completion of all assessments at 24 hours post-dose on Day 2 including collection of the 24 hour post-dose PK sample. Subjects will return to the unit for the remaining PK samples at 36, 48 and 72 hours. The subjects will receive 1 x 0.5mg oral dose of dutasteride (Sequence A) in similar fashion as that of Sequence B, The two treatment sequences will be separated by a minimum washout period of 28 days to ensure that dutasteride is effectively eliminated from the subject between dosing occasions.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Males aged between 18 and 65 years of age inclusive, at the time of signing the informed consent.
  • 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 parameter(s) which is/are not specifically listed in the inclusion or exclusion criteria, outside the reference range for the population being studied may be included only if the Investigator, in consultation with the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Medical Monitor if required, judges and documents that the finding is unlikely to introduce additional risk factors and will not interfere with the study procedures.

  • Able to swallow and retain oral medication.
  • Alanine aminotransferase, Aspartate aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin <= 2.0 x upper limit of normal (ULN) (isolated bilirubin >1.5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%).
  • Based on single or averaged corrected QT interval (QTc) values of triplicate ECGs obtained over a brief recording period: QT duration corrected for heart rate by Fridericia's formula (QTcF) < 450 milliseconds.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of regular alcohol consumption within 6 months of the study defined as:

An average weekly intake of >21 units for males. In Australia one unit (=standard drink) is equivalent to 10 gram of alcohol: 270 milliliter (mL) of full strength beer (4.8%), 375 mL of mid strength beer (3.5%), 470 mL of light beer (2.7%), 250mL pre-mix full strength spirit (5%), 100 mL of wine (13.5%) and 30 mL of spirit (40%).

  • 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.
  • History of myocardial infarction, coronary bypass surgery, unstable angina, cardiac arrhythmias, clinically evident congestive heart failure, or cerebrovascular accident prior to Screening visit;
  • History of diabetes or peptic ulcer disease which is uncontrolled by medical management.
  • History of: Breast cancer or clinical breast examination finding suggestive of malignancy; Malignancy within the past five years, except for basal cell carcinoma of the skin. Subjects with a prior malignancy who have had no evidence of disease for at least the past 5 years are eligible.
  • Prior medical history or evidence of prostate cancer (e.g., positive biopsy, or suspicious ultrasound, or suspicious digital rectal examination [DRE]). Patients with suspicious ultrasound or DRE who have had a negative biopsy within the preceding 6 months and stable prostate specific antigen (PSA) are eligible for the study.
  • A positive pre-study Hepatitis B surface antigen or positive Hepatitis C antibody result within 3 months of screening
  • A positive pre-study drug/alcohol screen.
  • A positive test for HIV antibody.
  • Creatinine >1.5xULN normal
  • Where participation in the study would result in donation of blood or blood products in excess of 500 mL within a 56 day period.
  • 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.
  • Unable to refrain from the 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) or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) 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.
