Brief Summary:
This is a pharmacokinetics and safety study over 3 weekly applications.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: AG200-15 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
Pharmacokinetic study to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetic profile of AG200-15 following application at three different anatomical sites (abdomen, buttock and upper torso).

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 24 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Pharmacokinetic Study of the Agile TCDS AG200-15 Following Weekly Application to Three Anatomical Sites (Abdomen, Buttock and Upper Torso) in Healthy Female Volunteers
Study Start Date : February 2011
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 2011
Actual Study Completion Date : April 2011

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AG200-15
Subjects will be randomly assigned to one of six treatment (site of application) sequences. Each sequence will include three patch application sites: abdomen, buttock, or upper torso excluding breasts.
Drug: AG200-15
A transdermal contraceptive delivery system for LNG and EE. A total of 3 patches will be worn during the study. Each patch will be worn for 1 week followed by a patch free week.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetic profile of LNG and EE [ Time Frame: Sampling will occur at 0 hour, 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, 72, 120, 144, 168 hours and after patch removal at 174, 180, 192, 216, 240 hours. ]

    Pharmacokinetic (PK) sampling will be done after exposure to each anatomic location. PK results will be reported in pg/mL.

    Log-transformed PK parameters (AUCs Cmax and Css) will be analyzed with an analysis of variance (ANOVA) model.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Patch adhesion [ Time Frame: 168 hour timepoint ]
    Adhesion assessed immediately prior to patch removal

  2. Safety [ Time Frame: Adverse Events will be collected from first dose through 30 days post-dosing ]
    Safety evaluations are based on the number of discontinuations due to Adverse Events, changes in physical and gynecological examination, and treatment-emergent changes in vital signs and body weight.
