This compound, GR270773, is a lipid based compound being developed to treat Sepsis. Lipids are broken down in the body by the liver. This study is designed to see whether the effect of the drug in people with poorly functioning livers is any different to the effect on healthy adults.

Condition Intervention Phase
Sepsis Septic Shock Drug: Intravenous GR270773 - Phospholipid emulsion Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-Label, Non-Randomised, Pharmacokinetic, Metabolic Disposition and Safety Study of a 3 Day Continuous Infusion of GR270773 in Healthy Subjects and Subjects With Hepatic Impairment.

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare drug concentrations in the blood between patients with impaired liver function and normal healthy adults, after 72 hours. Determine whether administration of study drug alters the lipid make-up of healthy adults in any way.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine drug concentrations in blood after 2 hour run-in period and after 72 hour infusion period. Determine whether administration of study drug alters the lipid make-up of patients with impaired liver function in any way.
