This open-label study will assess the effects of hepatic impairment on the pharmacokinetics of a single oral dose of aleglitazar in subjects with mild or moderate hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh class A or B) and in matched control subjects with normal hepatic function. Subjects will receive a single oral dose of aleglitazar, with assessment of the pharmacokinetics of aleglitazar on Days 1-5. Anticipated duration of study for each enrolled subject is approximately 6 weeks.

Further study details as provided by Hoffmann-La Roche:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Effects of mild and moderate hepatic impairment on the pharmacokinetics (AUCinf, Cmax) of aleglitazar following a single oral dose [ Time Frame: Days 1-5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability in subjects with mild and moderate hepatic impairment following a single oral dose: Adverse events, ECG, vital signs, laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: from baseline to Day 10 (+/- 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
