Evaluating Celecoxib Activity in Mycobacterium Tuberculosis: A Whole Blood Bactericidal Activity Study 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. Identifier: NCT02602509
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : November 11, 2015

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the bactericidal activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis of celecoxib in combination with established drugs used to treat tuberculosis (TB). Pharmacokinetics (PK) and whole blood bactericidal activity (WBA) will be measured in healthy volunteers following administration of the study drugs alone and in combination.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Tuberculosis Drug: Celecoxib Drug: Rifampicin Drug: Pyrazinamide Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The whole blood bactericidal activity (WBA) assay is an ex vivo model for measuring the combined effects of administered drugs, host factors and strain factors on mycobacterial sterilisation. If performed in parallel with PK measurements, the method can be used to evaluate the effect of drugs throughout the dosing cycle. Celecoxib is a COX-2 inhibitor with immuno-modulatory properties important in the host defence against tuberculosis (TB). The aim of this trial is to investigate the effect on WBA of manipulation of the host response to TB using celecoxib, in combination with established TB drugs.
