Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Plasma concentration of canagliflozin following the dose of 2 CANA/MET XR FDC tablets [ Time Frame: Day 1, Day 7 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Plasma concentrations of canagliflozin are used to evaluate how long canagliflozin stays in the body.

  • Plasma concentration of metformin following the dose of 2 CANA/MET XR FDC tablets [ Time Frame: Day 1, Day 7 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Plasma concentrations of metformin are used to evaluate how long it stays in the body.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of participants with adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Screening, up to Day 10 of the follow-up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: January 2014
Study Completion Date: March 2014
Primary Completion Date: February 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Canagliflozin/Metformin XR
Each patient will receive 2 tablets of CANA/MET XR combination of total dose 300/2000 mg
Each tablet contains Canagliflozin/extended release Metformin (CANA/MET XR) fixed dose combination (FDC) of 150 mg/1,000 mg, to be taken orally (by mouth)

Detailed Description:

This is an open-label (physicians and participants know the identity of the assigned treatment), multiple-dose, single-center, pharmacokinetic study of a fixed dose combination (FDC) of 150 mg/1,000 mg Canagliflozin/extended release Metformin (CANA/MET XR) tablets. The study will consist of 3 phases: a Screening Phase of approximately 3 weeks, an Open-Label Treatment Phase, (when the participants will be confined to the study center for 11 days), and a Follow-up Phase of about 10 days. The total duration of the study will be about 42 days for each participant. During the Open-Label Treatment Phase, approximately 12 healthy adult participants will receive a single oral dose of 2 CANA/MET XR tablets once daily for 7 days after a provided dinner. Participants will be required to fast from the end of lunch until the dinner (a period of at least 6.5 hours) on Days 1 and 7 only.
