The objective of this study is to compare the absorption of a niacin metabolite (1-methylnicotinamide, 1-MNA) from TRIA-662 (1-methylnicotinamide chloride)relative to the production of 1-MNA from Niaspan. The 1-MNA information obtained from this study will be used to adjust the top dose of a planned TRIA-622 efficacy study.
Endpoint Classification: Bio-availability Study
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Open Label
||A Single-Dose, Randomized, Open-Label, Crossover, Comparative Bioavailability Study of TRIA-662 500 mg Immediate-Release Tablets and NIASPAN 1000 mg Extended-Release Tablets in Healthy Male and Female Volunteers Under Fed Conditions
Primary Outcome Measures:
- ANOVA and 90% Confidence Intervals on ln-transformed, baseline corrected molar urine recovery data of niacin metabolites. [ Time Frame: 96 hours of urine collection ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Peak plasma concentration (Cmax)of each niacin metabolite [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and at 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 12, 16, 20, 24 and 30 hours after dosing in each study period. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Plasma area under the curve to the last measureable timepoint, AUCt [ Time Frame: Pre-dose and at 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 12, 16, 20, 24 and 30 hours after dosing in each study period. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
