Last verified: July 2012

This is a Phase 4, multicenter, open label, 1 period study. A total of 16 subjects are planned (8 subjects in Group A and 8 subjects in Group B):

The 2 groups will be comparable in terms of age, gender, and body mass index (BMI); the ranges for comparison will be obtained from the pooled demographic data of the renally impaired subjects. The mean age of Group B will be within 5 years of the mean age of Group A, the mean BMI of Group B will be within 18% of the mean BMI of Group A, and the ratio of men to women in Group B will be the same as in Group A.

Condition Intervention Phase
Severe Renal Impairment Drug: Pitavastatin 4mg Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Official Title: A Study to Compare the Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetic Profile of a Single Oral Dose of Pitavastatin 4 mg in Adult Volunteers With Severe Renal Impairment Who Are Not Being Treated With Hemodialysis Versus Healthy Adult Volunteers

Study Start Date: December 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: April 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Pitavastatin 4mg renal impaired
Subjects with severe renal impairment (glomerular filtration rate [GFR] of 15 to 29 mL/min/1.73 m2, inclusive) who are not being treated with hemodialysis
Drug: Pitavastatin 4mg
Pitavastatin 4mg single dose
Active Comparator: Pitavastatin 4mg healthy subjects
Healthy subjects (GFR greater than or equal to 90 mL/min/1.73 m2)
Drug: Pitavastatin 4mg
Pitavastatin 4mg single dose


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject is an adult male or female subject aged 18 years or older. Females of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test before beginning the study.
  • Subject has no clinically significant medical conditions (other than renal impairment and associated diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia, for subjects in Group A) as determined by medical history, physical examination, 12-lead ECG, clinical laboratory results (hematology, serum chemistry, and urinalysis [if able to pass urine]), and serology results (hepatitis B surface antigen, hepatitis C virus antibody, and human immunodeficiency virus types 1 and 2 antibody). Subjects with positive results for hepatitis C virus but who have normal liver enzymes will not be excluded. Any subjects who have impaired hepatic function that will potentially affect drug metabolism should be excluded.
  • Subject provides written informed consent before any study-specific evaluation is performed.
  • Subject is able and willing to comply with the protocol and study procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject is on maintenance hemodialysis.
  • Subject has a BMI of >37 kg/m2.
