Detailed Description:
This is a multi-center, randomized, blinded, placebo controlled study to evaluate the safety of GSK1278863 and its acute and short-term (e.g. 14d) effects on calf muscle endurance and walking ability in subjects with PAD and symptomatic claudication. Functional assessments will be performed following a single high dose (300mg), a single low dose (15mg), and following 14 days of low dose treatment (15mg q.d.). The objectives of this study are to: 1) Evaluate the safety and tolerability of GSK1278863 administered as a single dose and as sub-chronic low dosing (i.e. 14 days) in subjects with peripheral artery disease; 2) To demonstrate the potential pharmacodynamic effect of GSK1278863 on functional measures of calf muscle endurance and fatigability and timed walking distance following a single high or low dose and after 14 days of multiple low dose administration in subjects with claudication-limited peripheral artery disease. In this hypothesis-generating study, multiple assessments of ambulatory and skeletal muscle function will be made during standardized tests of claudication-limited exercise performance, and 3). Characterize the relationship, if any, between the doses and plasma concentrations of GSK1278863 and the pharmacodynamic effects.

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects ≥ 40 years of age.
  • Male subjects must use one of the contraceptive methods listed in Section 8.1 for 90 days post-last dose.
  • Females must be postmenopausal, surgically sterilized, or practicing a suitable method of birth control so that in the opinion of the investigator they will not become pregnant during the course of the study.

A female subject is eligible to participate if she is of child-bearing potential and agrees to use one of the contraception methods listed in Section 8.1 for an appropriate period of time (as determined by the product label or investigator) prior to the start of dosing to sufficiently minimize the risk of pregnancy at that point. Female subjects must agree to use contraception until 30 days post-last dose.

  • Peripheral artery disease defined as an ankle-brachial index (ABI) at rest ≤ 0.90 in at least one leg in which the patient experiences claudication. For all subsequent evaluations, the Index Leg refers to the symptomatic leg with the lowest ABI.
  • Claudication symptoms with stable severity for at least 3 months prior to screening.
  • The patient is able to provide written informed consent to participate in this study.
  • AST and ALT < 2xULN; alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin greater than or equal too 1.5xULN (isolated bilirubin >1.5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%).
  • Confirmed QTcB or QTcF < 450 msec; or QTc < 480 msec in subjects with bundle branch block.
  • Subjects must be able to perform performance/exercise testing

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), open peripheral vascular procedures, or major surgical procedures within 6 months prior to screening or patients likely to require revascularization during the course of the trial. Endovascular procedures within 3 months prior to screening.
  • Any unstable vascular syndromes (such as TIA, CVA, unstable angina or acute MI), including major changes to related medications, within 6 months prior to randomization.
  • Critical leg ischemia classified as Fontaine Stage III-IV (rest pain, tissue necrosis or gangrene).
  • Pregnant or nursing women (women capable of childbearing must have a negative pregnancy test).

  • Patients with a pre-existing condition interfering with normal gastrointestinal anatomy or motility, and/or hepatic function that could interfere with the absorption, metabolism, and/or excretion of the study drugs. Examples of conditions that could interfere with normal gastrointestinal anatomy or motility include gastrointestinal bypass surgery, partial or total gastrectomy, small bowel resection, vagotomy, malabsorption, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or celiac sprue.
  • Use of prescription drugs within 7 days prior to first dose of study drug (Day 1) until after completion of all study drug doses and Day 35 assessments:

which are known to be inhibitors of CYP 2C8 OR which are known to be both CYP 2C8 and OATP1B1 substrates OR which rely mainly on OATP1B1/1B3 for hepatic clearance as described in Section 9 of the protocol.

  • Use of prescription drugs within 14 days prior to first dose of study drug (Day 1) until completion of all study drug doses and Day 35 assessments, which are known to be inducers of CYP 2C8, as described in Section 9 of the protocol.
  • Use of non-prescription drugs, including vitamins, herbal and dietary supplements (including St John's Wort) within 7 days (or 14 days if the drug is a potential enzyme inducer) or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of study drug (Day 1) through the Follow-up Visit (Day 65), unless, in the opinion of the Investigator, medication will not interfere with the study procedures or compromise subject safety and GSK Medical Monitor concurs.
  • History of sensitivity to any of the study drugs, or components thereof, or a history of drug or other allergy that, in the opinion of the investigator or GSK Medical Monitor, contraindicates their participation.
  • Patient is mentally or legally incapacitated.
