Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is characterize the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and steady-state plasma levels after once-daily oral dosing of prucalopride (R108512) as a solution, 0.01 mg/kg to 0.03 mg/kg, given to paediatric subjects with functional faecal retention (FFR) for 8 weeks.

Hypothesis:

Pharmacokinetic profile of prucalopride in paediatric subjects is expected to resemble the adult pharmacokinetic profile. Safety and tolerability profile are expected to resemble the adult profile.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Constipation Drug: prucalopride Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a multicentre, open-label trial in which paediatric subjects (ages 4 to 12 years) with FFR were administered prucalopride in oral solution once daily for 8 weeks. Subjects who entered this extension trial had completed PRU-USA-12, a single-dose pharmacokinetic trial, usually within the previous week.

Evaluations for efficacy, safety and tolerability were performed, and plasma samples for analysis of prucalopride levels were obtained at 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks.

The initial dosage of prucalopride oral solution was 0.02 mg/kg/day. Dependent on the subject's response, the parent could adjust the dosage within a range of 0.01 mg/kg/day to 0.03 mg/kg/day.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: prucalopride
0.01 mg/kg/day to 0.03 mg/kg/day prucalopride (R108512) oral solution
Drug: prucalopride
0.01 mg/kg/day to 0.03 mg/kg/day prucalopride (R108512) oral solution




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse events

    Adverse events (AEs) to be recorded by spontanous reporting or after non-leading questioning i.e. reporting of all AEs and its duration during the course of the trial. In addition at bi-weekly visits laboratory assessments, vitals signs, ECGs and physical examinations, reported as mean values and clinical significant abnormalities to be tabulated.

    Efficacy: reporting of bowel movements and its characteristics in a diary.


  2. Efficacy
    Reporting of bowel movement frequency, i.e. average number of bowel movements on a weekly base.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Secondary efficacy variables: steady-state plasma levels after once-daily oral dosing of prucalopride (R108512) as a solution, 0.01 mg/kg to 0.03 mg/kg, given to paediatric subjects with functional faecal retention (FFR) for 8 weeks. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
