A 5-way Treatment Period Trial of Single Doses of Intranasal GSK256066 in Patients With Rhinitis

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
GlaxoSmithKline Identifier:
First received: April 20, 2007
Last updated: May 31, 2012
Last verified: February 2011
This current study is planned as a dedicated pharmacodynamic (effect of drug on the body) study to investigate the dose response in rhinitic subjects at doses where GSK256066 has been proven to work (200mcg) or expected to (50mcg) work. This study also aims to investigate the lower end of the predicted therapeutic range.

Condition Intervention Phase
Rhinitis, Allergic, Seasonal Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis SAR Drug: GSK256066 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single Blind
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomised, Open, Placebo-controlled 5-way Crossover Trial of Single Doses of Intranasal GSK256066 in Subjects With Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (SAR).

Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Effects of GSK256066 on ribonucleic acid (RNA) levels, which show phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4) inhibition in nasal scrape samples and on protein biomarkers of PDE4 inhibition in lavage samples

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To explore the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of single doses of GSK256066 in mild to moderate allergic rhinitic subjects. To explore the effects of GSK256066 on additional markers of PDE4 inhibition in nasal lavage.

  • Any respiratory disease other than mild stable asthma that is controlled with occasional use of as-needed short-acting beta-agonists and associated with normal lung function.
  • The subject has a history of drug or other allergy that may contraindicate participation.
  • The subject has participated in a study with a new molecular entity during the previous 4 months or in any clinical study in the previous 3 months
  • The subject is concurrently participating in another clinical study and is exposed to an investigational or a non-investigational drug or device.

  • Past or present disease which may affect study. outcome
  • The subject regularly, or on average, drinks more than 4 units of alcohol per day - where 1 unit = ½ pint of beer (284mL), or 1 glass of wine (125mL), or 1 measure of spirit (25mL).
