Long-term PK and Safety/Tolerability Testing LDLL600 Against Esmolol in Healthy Volunteers

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01741519
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : December 5, 2012
Last Update Posted : April 21, 2015

AOP Orphan Pharmaceuticals AG

Brief Summary:
The study will compare the pharmacokinetics (PK), safety and tolerability of long-term infusion of lyophilized landiolol (LDLL600) against esmolol (Brevibloc) by measurement of blood concentrations of landiolol, esmolol and their metabolites, and by monitoring systemic cardiovascular and local tolerability, blood pressure (BP), ECG including heart rate (HR) and adverse events (AEs).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: LDLL600 Drug: Brevibloc Phase 1

Detailed Description:

12 subjects will be administered LDLL600 and Brevibloc in a double-blind, randomized, cross-over setting. PK, systemic cardiovascular and local tolerability and safety of 24-hour long infusions of three dose levels of both Investigational Medicinal Products (IMPs) during each treatment period will be assessed.

Each treatment period will consist of:

Dose level 1 (LOW) for 2 hours (h) Dose level 2 (MEDIUM)for 2 hours Dose level 3 (HIGH)for 2 hours PK and tolerability observation at dose level 3, 2 or 1 will be continued for 18 hours in order to end up with a total infusion period of 24 h Post-infusion follow-up (FU)for 6 hours after infusion termination

The duration of the wash-out period between treatment periods will be at least two days. Each subject, if confirmed eligible, will complete two treatment periods in total.

In case of poor tolerability, alternative dosing schemes will be followed.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: LDLL600
Landiolol hydrochloride, intravenous infusion of 10, 20 and 40 µg/kg/min for 2 h each followed by 18 h long-term infusion of best tolerated dose.
Drug: LDLL600
Comparison of 3 different doses LDLL600 in long-term infusion. 54 PK samples, BP and ECG measurement time points, several local tolerability measurement time points.
Other Name: Landiolol hydrochloride

Active Comparator: Brevibloc
Esmolol, intravenous infusion of 50, 100 and 200 µg/kg/min for 2 h each followed by 18 h long-term infusion of best tolerated dose.
Drug: Brevibloc
Comparison of 3 different doses Esmolol in long-term infusion. 54 PK samples, BP and ECG measurement time points, several local tolerability measurement time points.
Other Name: Esmolol

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PK [ Time Frame: 24 h ]
    PK as measured by Cmax, Tmax, area under curve (AUC), residual area, T1/2, total body clearance (CL) and V

  2. Safety [ Time Frame: 24 h ]
    Safety as measured by Adverse events, clinical chemistry, hematology, urinalysis, physical examination, ECG (HR, PQ, QRS, QT and QTc) and BP in mmHG.

  3. Local Tolerability [ Time Frame: 24 h ]
    Local tolerability as measured by signs and symptoms of inflammation judged by the clinical investigator on a 6-symptom, 4-point venous score.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacodynamics (PD) [ Time Frame: 24 h ]
    PD as measured by ECG (HR, PQ, QRS, QT and QTc) and BP in mmHG.
