Primary Outcome Measures:
  • PK profile of metformin and furosemide from plasma [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 5 ]
    Profile in terms of maximum observed concentration (Cmax), time of occurence of maximum observed concentration (Tmax), area under the concentration-time curve (AUC), and apparent terminal half-life (t1/2).

  • PK profile of furosemide from urine [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 5 ]
    Profile in terms of renal clearance (CLr) and amount of compound excreted into urine unchanged (Ae).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of Adverse Events and Changes in Laboratory, Electrocardiogram, and Vital Signs Parameters [ Time Frame: 5 weeks ]

Enrollment: 23
Study Start Date: October 2013
Study Completion Date: January 2014
Primary Completion Date: November 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Lesinurad and Metformin

Sequence A- Day 1: Metformin 850 mg; Day 5: Lesinurad 400 mg with metformin 850 mg

Sequence B- Day 1: Lesinurad 400 mg with metformin 850 mg; Day 5: Metformin 850 mg

Drug: Lesinurad 400 mg Drug: Metformin 850 mg
Experimental: Lesinurad and Furosemide

Sequence C - Day 1: Furosemide 40 mg; Day 5: Lesinurad 400 mg with furosemide 40 mg

Sequence D - Day 1: Lesinurad 400 mg with furosemide 40 mg; Day 5: Furosemide 40 mg

Drug: Lesinurad 400 mg Drug: Furosemide 40 mg

Detailed Description:
Leinurad is a weak in vitro inhibitor of the hepatic transporter OCT1 and the renal transporters OAT1 and OAT3 (OAT1/3). To assess the clinical relevance of these in vitro findings, this clinical study will evaluate the effect of lesinurad on the PK of metformin (OCT1 substrate) and furosemide (OAT1/3 substrate).
