Information provided by (Responsible Party):
GlaxoSmithKline
  Purpose
This is a randomized, single center, open label, single dose, four way crossover study in fasted healthy male subjects to compare the pharmacokinetics of nicotine following administration of 3 prototype 4mg nicotine lozenge to an internationally marketed 4mg nicotine lozenge. Blood samples will be drawn at pre-specified intervals for a total of 12 hours post dose in each treatment session and plasma samples analyzed for nicotine levels.

Condition Intervention Phase
Smoking Cessation Drug: nicotine Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Cross-Over, Single Dose Pharmacokinetic Study of 4mg Nicotine Lozenges.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Area Under the Curve From Time 0 to t, AUC (0-t) [ Time Frame: Blood samples were collected pre-dose and at 5, 10, 15, 30 and 45 minutes and 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post dosing ]
    Area under the plasma concentration time curve from zero and extrapolated to the time of last quantifiable sample was determined from plasma concentration time profile of nicotine. AUC(0 -t) was based on the baseline adjusted nicotine plasma concentration data.

  • Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Blood samples were collected pre-dose and at 5, 10, 15, 30 and 45 minutes and 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post dosing ]
    Maximum plasma nicotine concentration was determined from plasma-concentration time profiles. Cmax was based on the baseline adjusted nicotine plasma concentration data.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC(0-inf) [ Time Frame: Blood samples were collected pre-dose and at 5, 10, 15, 30 and 45 minutes and 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post dosing ]
    Area under the plasma nicotine concentration-time curve from zero extrapolated to infinity was determined. AUC(0-inf) was based on the baseline adjusted nicotine plasma concentration data.

  • Time to Maximum Plasma Concentration (Tmax) [ Time Frame: Blood samples were collected pre-dose and at 5, 10, 15, 30 and 45 minutes and 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post dosing ]
    Tmax was determined from plasma concentration time profiles. Tmax was based on the baseline adjusted nicotine plasma concentration data.

  • Rate of Elimination (Kel) [ Time Frame: Blood samples were collected pre-dose at 5, 10, 15, 30 and 45 minutes and 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post dosing ]
    Elimination rate constant for nicotine was calculated. Kel was based on the baseline adjusted nicotine plasma concentration data.

  • Plasma Half Life (t1/2) [ Time Frame: Blood samples were collected pre-dose and at 5, 10, 15, 30 and 45 minutes and 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours post dosing ]
    Half-life of elimination of nicotine was determined. t1/2 was based on the baseline adjusted nicotine plasma concentration data.
