Study Description
Brief Summary:
Agomelatine (AGO178) was developed for the treatment of depression. A new formulation is being tested in the present study: a tablet to be placed and dissolved under the tongue (sublingual tablet). The goal of this trial is to study the pharmacokinetics of agomelatine given as sublingual tablet in patients with liver impairment and to compare the results to those of healthy volunteers who receive the same treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hepatic Impairment Drug: AGO178 Phase 1 Phase 2

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cmax of agomelatine (AGO178) [ Time Frame: Predose, 2 min , 5 min , 10 min, 20 min, 30 min, 45 min, 1h, 1.5h, 2h, 3h, 4h, 6h, 12h, 24h, 36h Post dose ]
    Blood samples will be collected at various time points on day 1 and day 2

  2. Area under the plasma curve (AUC) of agomelatine (AGO178) [ Time Frame: Predose, 2 min , 5 min , 10 min, 20 min, 30 min, 45 min, 1h, 1.5h, 2h, 3h, 4h, 6h, 12h, 24h, 36h Post dose ]
    Blood samples will be collected at various time points on day 1 and day 2


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of patients with adverse events [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 8 ]
    Adverse events will be based on evaluation of physical signs, electrocardiograms and clinical laboratory assessments (clinical chemistry, hematology, urinalysis).
