Tibotec Pharmaceuticals, Ireland
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to compare absorption of TMC435 formulated as 2 different types of capsules. After that, the absorption of one chosen TMC435 capsule will be compared when taken under fasting conditions or together with a standard or a high-fat meal. This will be done in healthy volunteers.

Condition Intervention Phase
Hepatitis C Drug: TMC435 HPMC capsule Drug: TMC435 HPMC or gelatin capsule Drug: TMC435 gelatin capsule Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I, Open-label, Randomized, Single-dose, 2-panel, Crossover Trial in Healthy Subjects to Assess the Relative Bioavailability of TMC435 HPMC Capsule Compared to the TMC435 Gelatin Capsule and to Assess the Effect of Different Meal Types on the Bioavailability of Both Formulations

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Absorption of TMC435 following administration of the HPMC capsule and of the gelatin capsule [ Time Frame: Over 72 hours for every treatment session ]
  • Absorption of TMC435 following administration of the HPMC or gelatin capsule in the fed (following different meal types) and fasted state [ Time Frame: Over 72 hours for every treatment session ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with adverse events and the severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: During maximum 7 weeks ]
  • Percentage of abnormal values for laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: Up to maximum 7 weeks ]
  • Observed values and changes from baseline of cardiovascular variables [ Time Frame: Up to maximum 7 weeks ]
  • Evaluation of pulse and blood pressure values, based on changes from baseline and the percentage of participants with values beyond clinically important limits [ Time Frame: Up to maximum 7 weeks ]
  • Physical examination findings and changes from baseline. [ Time Frame: Up to maximum 7 weeks ]

Detailed Description:
This is an open-label, randomized, single-dose, crossover trial in healthy volunteers. Crossover means that participants may receive different interventions sequentially during the trial. Randomized means that you will be assigned to a treatment sequence by chance, like flipping a coin. Open-label means that you and your physician will know what treatment you will receive. The study will consist of 3 phases: a screening phase, a treatment phase and a follow-up phase. Total study duration for an individual participant will be up to 6 or 7 weeks. Once found eligible after the screening phase, participants will take part in one of the two parts of the treatment phase. In the first part, a group of 24 participants will receive two treatment sessions, A and B. The order in which the treatments are given will be determined by chance. Treatment A is a single dose of TMC345 as one formulation (1 capsule). Treatment B is a single dose of TMC435 as another formulation (1 other type of capsule). Both treatments will be taken without food. In between the 2 sessions, there will be at least 7 days. In the second part, another group of 24 participants will receive 3 treatment sessions, C, D, and E. The order in which these treatments are given will be determined by chance. All 3 treatments will consist of a single dose of TMC435 as one of the 2 formulations given in the first part. In Treatment C this will be given without food, in Treatment D with a standardized breakfast and in Treatment E with a high-fat breakfast. In between the sessions, there will be at least 7 days. For all treatment sessions, participants will enter the study center the day before dosing and will remain there until the evening of the day after. The 3 following mornings, participants will come back to the study center. Five to 7 days after dosing, participants will have a last follow-up visit at the study center (follow-up phase). During the study, safety will be monitored, and during the treatment phase, at specified timepoints, blood samples will be taken for pharmacokinetic evalutions (effect of the body on the drug). In every treatment session, a single oral 150 mg TMC435 capsule will be given. One formulation will be a gelatin capsule. The other formulation will be a hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) capsule.
