Brief Summary:

16448 is being investigated for the treatment of primary premature ejaculation (PE) using a novel mode of action. There are no approved therapies for premature ejaculation, and novel therapies are needed for this syndrome.

16448 has been shown to increase ejaculatory latency in the PCA rat model of premature ejaculation.

A novel instrument, the Sexual Assessment Monitor (SAM), will be used to measure ejaculatory latency time in this study. This device, which measures ELT under standard conditions, has been shown to provide a more reliable measure of ejaculatory latency compared to the use of a stopwatch during sexual intercourse

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Premature Ejaculation Drug: 16448 Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 18 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Two-session Study to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of an 16448 in Healthy Males With Premature Ejaculation.
Study Start Date : December 2006

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. -vital signs, ECGs, clinical laboratory tests, adverse events at 24h -area under plasma drug concentration versus time curve [AUC (0-t),AUC (0-8)], maximum observed plasma concentration (Cmax),time at max concentration(Tmax)& half life (T1/2) [ Time Frame: 24h ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Measurement of ELT following a single dose of 16448 compared to placebo at approximately 1-2h, post-dose [ Time Frame: 1-2h, post-dose ]
