Brief Summary:
This is a single-center, open-label, non-randomized, single dose of 14C-NW-3509 capsule study in 6 healthy male subjects.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: Evenamide Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is a single-center, open-label, non-randomized, single dose study in a single cohort of 6 healthy male subjects, including up to 2 cytochrome P450 (CYP)2D6 poor metabolizer subjects. Each subject will receive a single oral administration of 14C-NW-3509 capsule in the fasted state.The screening period and study admission to completion is estimated to be up to 43 days. The following data will be analyzed urine and feces data for total radioactivity, plasma and whole blood data for total radioactivity and plasma concentration data for NW-3509.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 6 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: An Open Label, Single-Dose, Single-Period Study Designed to Assess the Mass Balance Recovery, Metabolite Profile and Metabolite Identification of [14C]-NW-3509 in Healthy Male Subjects
Actual Study Start Date : April 2, 2018
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 23, 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 2018

Intervention Details:
  • Drug: Evenamide
    This is an orally available small molecule that potently blocks voltage-gated sodium channels (VGSCs) in vitro and is indicated for the treatment of patients with schizophrenia, mania, and bipolar disorder.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Metabolic profiling for NW-3509 will be determined in plasma, urine and fecal samples [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    Percent of each radio labeled drug-related material will be determined in plasma, urine and feces

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Routes and rate of elimination of NW-3509 in plasma, urine and feces [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    The routes and rate of elimination of 14C-NW-3509 by measurement of 14C-NW-3509 and its major metabolites in plasma, urine and feces

  2. The identification of major metabolites of NW-3509 in plasma, urine and feces [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    Metabolic profiling will be performed using liquid chromatography-radio-detection, with subsequent mass spectrometry

  3. Safety and Tolerability of NW-3509 [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    This will be assessed by Adverse events, Clinical chemistry, Clinical Hematology and Urinalysis, Vital signs and Physical Examination

  4. Oral Pharmacokinetics of NW-3509 in plasma, urine and feces [ Time Frame: 15 days ]
    Several parameters will be measured Cmax, Tmax, AUC, elimination half-life, Tlag etc
