Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: January 23, 2009)
  • Maximum plasma concentration, total, plasma clearance, steady-state volume of distribution of esomeprazole [ Time Frame: Day 4 of study ]
  • Safety and tolerability will be assessed by AEs, laboratory values, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, and ECG [ Time Frame: Days 1-4 (during treatment), Days 1-28 (post treatment) ]
  • Evaluate main metabolites of esomeprazole (sulphone metabolite and 5-hydroxy metabolite) by assessment of max plasma conc, total area under the plasma concentration vs time curve within a dosing interval, clearance scaled by fraction metabolised [ Time Frame: Day 4 ]

Brief Title  ICMJE Phase 1 Pharmacokinetics of Intravenous Nexium in Children
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase I, Randomised, Open-label, Multi-National Study to Evaluate the Pharmacokinetics of Repeated Once-Daily Intravenous Doses of Esomeprazole in Paediatric Patients 0 to 17 Years Old, Inclusive.
Brief Summary The purpose of this research study is to evaluate how much of repeated once daily intravenous (IV, meaning through a vein) doses of esomeprazole gets into the bloodstream of hospitalized children aged 0-17 years old that require acid suppression therapy.
