A randomized two-way crossover study to determine whether concomitant administration of CYP P450 3A4 inhibitor ketoconazole and fluticasone furoate/GW642444M combination significantly increases the systemic effects and exposure to repeat dose fluticasone furoate and/or GW642444 in healthy subjects. Key assessments will include blood potassium, heart rate, blood pressure, QTc, serum cortisol and pharmacokinetic parameters, and safety including vital signs, ECGs, adverse event monitoring and laboratory safety tests, including blood glucose.

Detailed Description:
This will be a single centre, randomized, double-blind (with respect to ketoconazole), two-way cross-over study in healthy male and female subjects. Subjects will attend for a screening visit within 28 days prior to the first treatment period. There will be two study periods, each consisting of 14 days. Ketoconazole or matching placebo will be administered for 11 days with fluticasone furoate/GW642444M inhalation powder co-administered on Days 5-11. During each period subjects will be required to report to the unit on Day -1 and will remain there until 1 hour post-dosing with ketoconazole or placebo on Day 1. Subjects will return to the unit on the mornings of Day 2 to Day 4 for dosing with ketoconazole or placebo. Subjects will then return on the evening of Day 4 and leave the unit on the morning of Day 6 (2 nights). Subjects will return to the unit on the mornings of Day 7 to Day 10 for dosing and pre-fluticasone furoate/GW642444M dose safety assessments. Subjects will return on the evening of Day 10 and leave the unit on the morning of Day 12 (2 nights). Subjects will make two outpatient visits, one in the evening on Day 12 and one in the morning on Day 13, to complete a few study related procedures. The two treatment periods will be separated by a washout of at least 7 days and no more than 14 days. Pharmacodynamic profiles for potassium, heart rate, QTc, blood pressure and serum cortisol will be taken on Day 11 with fluticasone furoate and GW642444 pharmacokinetic profiles on Days 5 and 11. Safety assessments will include vital signs, ECGs, adverse event monitoring and laboratory safety tests, plus blood glucose and blood potassium profiles on Day 5.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 64 Years   (Adult)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Healthy male or female between 18 and 64 years of age inclusive
  2. A female subject is eligible to participate if she is of:

    • Non-childbearing potential defined as pre-menopausal females with a documented tubal ligation or hysterectomy; or postmenopausal defined as 12 months of spontaneous amenorrhea [in questionable cases a blood sample with simultaneous follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) > 40 MlU/ml and estradiol < 40 pg/ml (<140 pmol/L) is confirmatory]. Females on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and whose menopausal status is in doubt will be required to use one of the contraception methods in Section 8.1 if they wish to continue their HRT during the study. Otherwise, they must discontinue HRT to allow confirmation of post-menopausal status prior to study enrollment. For most forms of HRT, at least 2-4 weeks will elapse between the cessation of therapy and the blood draw; this interval depends on the type and dosage of HRT. Following confirmation of their post-menopausal status, they can resume use of HRT during the study without use of a contraceptive method.
    • Child-bearing potential and agrees to use one of the contraception methods listed in Section 8.1 for an appropriate period of time (as determined by the product label or investigator) prior to the start of dosing to sufficiently minimize the risk of pregnancy at that point. Female subjects must agree to use contraception until completion of the follow-up visit.
  3. Body mass index within range of 18.5-29.0 kg/m2 inclusive.
  4. Subjects who are current non-smokers, who have not used any tobacco products in the 12 month period preceding the screening visit, and have a pack history of </= 5 pack years.
  5. AST, ALT, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin </= 1.5xULN (isolated bilirubin >1.5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%).
  6. No significant abnormality on 12-lead ECG at screening, including the following specific requirements:

    • QTcF < 450 msec
  7. No clinically significant abnormality on the Holter ECG at screening.

Use of prescription or non-prescription drugs, including vitamins, herbal and dietary supplements (including St John's Wort) within 7 days (or 14 days if the drug is a potential enzyme inducer) or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of study medication, unless in the opinion of the Investigator and GSK Medical Monitor the medication will not interfere with the study procedures or compromise subject safety.
  12. The subject has taken oral corticosteroids less than 8 weeks before the screening visit.
  13. The subject has taken inhaled, intranasal or topical steroids less than 4 weeks before the screening visit.
  14. History of alcohol/drug abuse or dependence within 12 months of the study. Abuse of alcohol defined as an average weekly intake of greater than 21 units or an average daily intake of greater than 3 units (males) or defined as an average weekly intake of greater than 14 units or an average daily intake of greater than 2 units (females).
  15. The subject has participated in a clinical trial and has received an investigational product within the following time period prior to the first dosing day in the current study: 3 months, 5 half-lives or twice the duration of the biological effect of the investigational product (whichever is longer).
  16. Exposure to more than four new chemical entities within 12 months prior to the first dosing day.
  17. Where participation in the study would result in donation of blood or blood products in excess of 500 mL within 3 months of the start of the trial.
  18. A positive pre-study Hepatitis B surface antigen or positive Hepatitis C antibody result within 3 months of screening.
  19. The subject has tested positive for HIV antibodies.
  20. A positive pre-study urine drug screen or when randomly tested during the study.
