Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals )
  Purpose
This is a single center, four-treatment, four period, crossover study to evaluate the effect of food on the relative bioavailability of a single dose of imatinib (STI571) given as a 800 mg modified release tablet, MR2 compared to twice-daily doses of 400 mg film-coated imatinib tablets. There will be a 10 day wash out phase between treatments and a 1 week safety period at the end of the study. Each participant will receive all four treatments

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Drug: imatinib Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I, Open-label, Randomized, Crossover Study to Investigate the Effect of Food on the Bioavailability of a Single 800 mg Imatinib Dose in a Modified Release Formulation (MR2) and Compare the Bioavailability Between MR2 and Imatinib 400 mg Twice Daily Immediate Release Tablet (IR) in Healthy Subjects

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the effect of food on bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of modified and immediate release formulations of imatinib

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare safety and tolerability of 800 mg modified release formulation with or without food.
  • To compare the relative bioavailability of a single dose 800 mg modified release formulation (with a low fat breakfast) with the marketed 400 mg immediate release tablet administered (with a low fat breakfast) twice daily

Enrollment: 16
