GSK962040 is a novel small molecule motilin agonist. The Phase I studies (MOT107043 and MOT109681) demonstrated that single doses of GSK962040 up to 150 mg and repeat dosing of up to 125 mg/day for 14 days were well tolerated with adverse events not occurring in greater prevalence than placebo, and no significant abnormal vital sign, ECG, or clinical laboratory findings. Pharmacokinetic parameters were linear and approximately dose proportional over the range of doses administered. Single doses of 50 mg - 150 mg GSK962040 significantly increased the rate of gastric emptying up to 40% as measured by the 13C octanoic acid stable isotope breath test. A similar effect of 50 mg and 125 mg on gastric emptying was observed throughout repeated dosing to healthy volunteers for 14-days.

The aims of the present investigation (MOT114479) are to assess the pharmacodynamic effects (gastric emptying and symptoms), safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of GSK962040 after 28 days of once-daily dosing in Type I and Type II diabetic subjects with gastroparesis. An additional aim is to characterize the dose/exposure - pharmacodynamic effect relationship.

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Type I or II Diabetes Mellitus (HbA1C < 10%)
  • Male or female between 18 and 80 years of age, inclusive.
  • Patient has gastroparesis at screening (gastric half-time of emptying > upper limit of normal as determined by 13C-oral breath test)
  • Patient must have a > or = 3 month history of relevant symptoms of gastroparesis (e.g., chronic post-prandial fullness, early satiety, postprandial nausea), patients will have a mean of the daily scores over a minimum of 7 days indicating > or = mild (2) and < or = severe (4) post-prandial fullness assessed using the GCSI-DD during the screening period prior to randomization.
  • A female patient 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, or a value consistent with the local laboratory standard value, is confirmatory. OR 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 patients must agree to use contraception for at least 5 days following the last dose of study medication.
