Relative Bioavailability Study of a Pediatric Granule Formulation of Dolutegravir
Dolutegravir (DTG, GSK1349572) is an integrase inhibitor currently in Phase 3 clinical trials for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. A granule formulation has been developed as an alternative to the current tablet formulation for administration in pediatric populations.
This is a single-center, randomized, open-label, 5-way crossover study in healthy adult subjects. The study will evaluate the relative bioavailability of a 50 mg granule formulation of dolutegravir when administered 1) directly to mouth; 2) with purified water; 3) with Contrex brand water; and 4) with milk-based infant formula compared to the current 50 mg tablet formulation administered with tap water. Safety evaluations and serial PK samples will be collected during each treatment period. A taste assessment of the granule will also be performed. A follow-up visit will occur 5-7 days after the last dose of study drug.
Pharmacokinetic assessments during the study will include area under the concentration-time curve from time zero (pre-dose) extrapolated to infinite time (AUC(0-infinity)), area under the concentration-time curve from time zero (pre-dose) to last time of quantifiable concentration within a subject across all treatments (AUC(0-t)), maximum observed concentration (Cmax), terminal phase half-life (t½), lag time before observation of drug concentrations in sampled matrix (tlag), time of occurrence of Cmax (tmax), concentration at 24 hours post-dose (C24), and apparent clearance following oral dosing (CL/F).

Experimental: Single arm
Subjects will have a screening visit within 30 days prior to the first dose of study drug, five treatment periods containing a single dose of study drug, followed by 48 hours of serial PK collection. In the 5 treatment periods subjects will receive DTG granule formulation 1) directly to mouth; 2) with purified water; 3) with Contrex brand water; and 4) with milk-based infant formula. They will also receive the current 50 mg tablet formulation administered with tap water. These treatments will be administered in a random order. Subjects will check out of the unit on Day 3 after the 48 hour PK sample in each period. Study periods will be separated by at least 5 days. Subjects will have a follow-up visit 5-7 days after last dose of DTG given.
