The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability pharmacokinetics (how the drug is absorbed in the body, how it is distributed within the body and how it is removed from the body over time) and pharmacodynamics (the effects of the drug) of JNJ-41443532 in healthy male and female Caucasian and male Japanese participants.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: Placebo
Drug: JNJ-41443532
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: Single Dose Study to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of JNJ-41443532 in Healthy Male and Female Caucasian and Male Japanese Subjects

Further study details as provided by Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research & Development, L.L.C.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the pharmacokinetic properties of a single dose JNJ-41443532 as determined by blood level concentrations. [ Time Frame: 6 Weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To explore the pharmacodynamic (PD) effects of JNJ-41443532 and to compare differences in the PD profile by age, sex, and race. [ Time Frame: 6 Weeks ]
  • To explore the relationship between JNJ-41443532 plasma concentrations (blood levels) and pharmacodynamic effects (concentration-effect relationships). [ Time Frame: 6 Weeks ]
  • Determine the safety and tolerability of JNJ-41443532 as determined by evaluation of adverse events, lab results, cardiac monitoring, vital signs, and physical exams. [ Time Frame: 6 Weeks ]

Detailed Description:
This is a randomized (study drug assigned by chance), double-blind (neither physician nor participant knows the name of the assigned drug), placebo-controlled, parallel group, single dose study in male and female Caucasian and male Japanese participants. The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) study in healthy male and female caucasian and male Japanese participants. For each participant, the study will consist of a screening examination (within 28 days of first dose on Day 1), a single period of open label treatment (all people involved know the identity of the intervention) upon entry in the study and discharge on Day 3), and a final, follow-up examination between 7-10 days after discharge from the study. Safety assessments include monitoring of adverse events, and evaluation of lab results, cardiac parameters, vital signs, and physical exams. Participants receive study medication (JNJ-41443532 or placebo) by mouth on Day 1 after an overnight fast of at least 10 hours; planned dose is 250 mg.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Senior)

  • Weight = 50 kilograms and Body Mass Index (BMI) between 18.5 and 29.9 kg/m2 (inclusive)
  • Healthy on the basis of physical examination, medical history, vital signs, and electrocardiogram (ECG) and clinical laboratory tests performed at screening
  • Men must agree to use a double barrier method of birth control (e.g. condom and use of spermicide with diaphragm, hormonal contraceptives or intrauterine devices by female partner) and to not donate sperm during the study and for 3 months after receiving the last dose of study drug
