This is an open-label study that will compare the pharmacokinetic and safety effects of naproxcinod in hepatic impaired patients vs. matching healthy subjects.

Condition Intervention Phase
Liver Disease Drug: naproxcinod Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Phase 1, Repeated-Dose, Open-Label Study to Investigate the Pharmacokinetics and Safety of Naproxcinod 750 mg Bid Administered to Patients With Impaired Hepatic Function Compared to Matching Healthy Subjects

Further study details as provided by NicOx:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the pharmacokinetics of naproxcinod and its metabolites after repeated 750 mg bid oral administration of naproxcinod in hepatic impaired patient in comparison with matching healthy subjects [ Time Frame: 8 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess safety and tolerability of repeated 750 mg bid oral administration of naproxcinod in hepatic impaired patients in comparison with matching healthy subjects. [ Time Frame: 8 days ]

Estimated Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: January 2008
Primary Completion Date: April 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
750 mg naproxcinod
Drug: naproxcinod
750 mg bid

Detailed Description:
This is an open-label, non-randomized, parallel-group study that will be conducted at two study sites. Patients with hepatic impairment and matched healthy subjects will receive naproxcinod 750 mg bid for 6 days and qd for the last day.
