Pharmacokinetics, Safety, and Tolerance Study of Single Dose Administration of Risperidone ISM®
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The study will comprise two dosing periods in two different cohorts of healthy volunteers. The investigators will begin with a single dosage period I (1 injection of 25 mg of Risperidone for each subject); single dosage period II, different from the previous one (1 injection of 37.5 mg of Risperidone for each subject), in a second group of healthy volunteers different from the first group will not start until after a preliminary analysis has been made of the safety data and plasma concentration data are known for the formulation of prolonged release Risperidone using the ISM® technology.

Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years to 50 Years (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Healthy volunteers of both sexes with a minimum age of 18 years and a maximum age of 50 years.

Each volunteer must be capable of understanding enough to complete all tests and exams required in the protocol.
Each volunteer must understand the nature of the study and sign an informed consent document.
Vital signs (systolic and diastolic blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature) and ECG record within the normal range.
The results of the laboratory tests (complete blood count and biochemistry) and ECG should fall within the normal reference ranges or show minor deviations that the investigator does not consider clinically relevant.
The investigator must consider the volunteers suitable candidates for prolonged release intramuscular administration.
Healthy volunteers must have a body mass index between 19 and 27 kg/m2, and weigh between 50 and 100 kg.
Healthy volunteers may not have known cardiovascular disease, orthostatic hypotension, seizures, a family history of prolonged QT interval, bradycardia, electrolyte disturbances (hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia), or hyperprolactinemia.
Pregnant women, nursing women, and female volunteers who are not using effective contraceptive methods.
Previous history of alcohol, drug, or substance abuse during the month prior to the selection. Average daily alcohol consumption exceeding 2 units (20 g/d). Smokers of more than 5-10 cigarettes per day in the 3 months prior to the start of the study.
History of allergy, idiosyncrasy, hypersensitivity or severe adverse reactions to medications, or contraindications to treatment with Risperidone as recorded in the data sheet of the drug.
Positive serology for hepatitis B or C, or for HIV.
History or clinical evidence of cardiovascular disease, respiratory, renal, hepatic, endocrine, gastrointestinal, hematological, neurological, psychiatric, or other chronic diseases that may interfere with the objectives of the trial.
Major consumer of stimulating beverages (> 5 cups of coffee, tea, cola drinks, or similar per day).
Positive urine test for ethanol, cannabis, cocaine, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, or opiates.

Having participated in another clinical trial during the three months before the start of the study.
Having donated blood within 4 weeks before the start of the study.
Having taken medication regularly in the month prior to the start of the study or symptomatic medication in the week before the start of the study, except for oral contraceptives, vitamins, herbal remedies, or dietary supplements that, according to the Principal Investigator or co-workers designated by him/her, do not involve a risk for the subjects and do not interfere with the objectives of the study.
