To evaluate the effects of a single dose of trientine in children ≥6 years and adult patients with Wilson's disease.
Drug: trientine dihydrochloride
||Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Phase 1 Pharmacokinetic Profiling Study in Patients Receiving Trientine Dihydrochloride for the Treatment of Wilson's Disease.
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Pharmacokinetic measurements [ Time Frame: Evaluation of PK parameters will occur at 11 time points:Pre-dose), and at 30 minutes, 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 12 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The main objective of the study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of a single dose of trientine dihydrochloride in children ≥6 years and adult patients with Wilson's disease by PK analysis.
Non-compartmental or model-independent methods will be used to derive pharmacokinetic parameters using individual patient plasma concentration-time data. Pharmacokinetic parameters will include the Cmax, Tmax, T1/2, and the concentration-time curved (AUC0-t) and AUCinf.

Experimental: Trientine dihydrochloride
Drug: trientine dihydrochloride
Patients will take their normal prescribed dose (x1) of trientine dihydrochloride 300mg
An open, single-dose study to determine the pharmacokinetics, and safety of oral administration of trientine dihydrochloride in both children and adult patients with Wilson's Disease. Blood samples will be taken pre-dose and at 10 time-points post-dose to investigate the pharmacokinetic profile of trientine dihydrochloride up to 12 hours after intake of study medication in 20 patients.
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||6 Years to 90 Years (Child, Adult, Senior)
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- Children ≥ 6 years and adult patients
- Confirmed diagnosis of Wilson's disease by Leipzig-Score >3 (Ferenci et al 2003)
- Current treatment with trientine dihydrochloride
- Signed informed consent including parental consent in patients ≤ 18 years
- Agree to remain in the study site1 for the PK measurements period.
- Known clinically significant allergy or hypersensitivity to drugs that, in the opinion of the investigator, may affect the patient's safety
- Have any clinically significant conditions that would interfere with the collection or interpretation of the study results or would compromise the patient's health
- Women of child bearing potential who do not use contraceptives, breastfeeding, or pregnant women
- Severe anaemia (haemoglobin <9 mg/dL)
- In the judgment of the Investigator, is likely to be noncompliant or uncooperative during the study, or unable to cooperate because of a language problem or poor mental development
- Participation in any interventional clinical study at the same time or within the 4 weeks prior his study.
