Further study details as provided by NicOx:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess differences in the plasma pharmacokinetics profile of naproxcinod and naproxen (total and unbound) between renal impaired patients and healthy subjects. [ Time Frame: 8 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess differences in the plasma and urinary pharmacokinetic profile of naproxcinod metabolites between renal impaired patients and healthy subjects. [ Time Frame: 8 days ]
  • To assess the general safety of naproxcinod in renal impaired patients and in healthy subjects as shown by the biological tolerance and the adverse events (AE) profile. [ Time Frame: 8 days ]

Estimated Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: May 2008
Study Completion Date: October 2008
Primary Completion Date: September 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: naproxcinod
naproxcinod 750mg(375mg caps x2), administered twice a day.
Drug: naproxcinod

Detailed Description:
This is an 8-day, repeated dose, open label study to investigate the pharmacokinetics and safety of naproxcinod in order to guide initial dosing and achieve the optimal dose of naproxcinod in Renal impaired patients.
