  Purpose

This study is being conducted to confirm that GSK1322322 has no negative impact on hormone levels and contraceptive efficacy when co-administered with a frequently prescribed oral contraceptive thereby to facilitate the use of GSK1322322 in women of child-bearing potential receiving oral contraceptive (OC) pre-infection. This study is designed to investigate steady-state plasma ethinyl estradiol (EE) and norethindrone (NE) pharmacokinetic (PK) following administration of Ortho-Novum (EE/NE) 1 tablet every 24 hours (q24h) fed with and without GSK1322322 1500 milligram (mg) q12h fed. Each subject will participate in the study for approximately 12 weeks: a 30 day screening period, 4-week run-in period, three 7 day treatment periods, and a 3-5 day follow-up period. The study is planned to enroll approximately 24 subjects (18 active/6 placebo).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Composite of PK parameters of EE/NE to compare the steady state plasma PK. If data permit, after EE/NE alone for 7 days and after EE/NE with GSK1322322 for 7 days. [ Time Frame: Plasma PK samples will be collected at pre-dose, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24 hours on Day 7, 14 and 21 of both run-in phase and on treatment phase. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PK parameters include: steady-state area under the concentration-time curve over the dosing interval (AUC[0-tau]), maximum observed concentration (Cmax), time of occurrence of Cmax (Tmax), minimum observed concentration (Cmin), and terminal phase half-life (t1/2)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Composite of PK parameters of GSK1322322 following co-administration of GSK1322322 and EE/NE for 7 days [ Time Frame: Plasma PK samples will be collected at pre-dose, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 12 hours post morning dose on day 7, 14, and 21 of treatment phase. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PK parameters include: steady-state AUC(0-tau), Cmax, Tmax

  • Number of subjects with adverse events (AEs) as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AEs will be collected from the start of Study Treatment and until the follow-up contact.

  • Concurrent medication assessment as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Laboratory parameter assessment as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG) assessment as a measure of safety and tolerability. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    12-lead ECGs will be obtained at each time point using an ECG machine that automatically to calculate the heart rate and measures PR, QRS, QT, and QT interval corrected for heart rate

  • Vital sign measurement as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Vital sign measurements will include systolic and diastolic blood pressure, temperature, and pulse rate

  • Pre-dose serum level of Lutenizing Hormone (LH). [ Time Frame: 7 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    LH will be evaluated as surrogate marker of contraceptive efficacy

  • Pre-dose serum level of Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) [ Time Frame: 7 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FSH will be evaluated as surrogate marker of contraceptive efficacy

  • Pre-dose serum level of Progesterone [ Time Frame: 7 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progesterone will be evaluated as surrogate marker of contraceptive efficacy
