  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to compare the pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of intranasally administered esketamine in elderly participants (greater than equal to [>=] 75 years of age) and younger healthy adult participants (18 to 55 years of age, inclusive).

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Drug: Esketamine Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-Label, Single-Dose Study to Assess the Pharmacokinetics, Safety, and Tolerability of Intranasally Administered Esketamine in Elderly (>= 75 Years of Age) and Healthy Younger Adult Subjects (18 to 55 Years of Age, Inclusive)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours after study drug administration ]
    The Cmax is the maximum plasma concentration.

  • Time to reach maximum concentration (tmax) [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours after study drug administration ]
    The Tmax is time to reach the maximum plasma concentration.

  • Area Under the Plasma Concentration-Time Curve From Time Zero to 12 Hours (AUC [0-12]) [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours after study drug administration ]
    The AUC (0-12) is the area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to 12 hours post-dose.

  • Area Under the Plasma Concentration-Time Curve From Time Zero to Last (AUC [0-last]) [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours after study drug administration ]
    The AUC (0-last) is the area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time zero to last quantifiable time, calculated as the sum of AUC(last) and C(last)/lambda(z), wherein AUC(last) is area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time zero to last quantifiable time; and C(last) is the last observed quantifiable concentration; and lambda(z) is elimination rate constant.

  • Area Under the Plasma Concentration-Time Curve From Time Zero to Infinite Time (AUC [0-infinity]) [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours after study drug administration ]
    The AUC (0-infinity) is the area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time zero to infinite time, calculated as the sum of AUC(last) and C(last)/lambda(z), wherein AUC(last) is area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time zero to last quantifiable time; and C(last) is the last observed quantifiable concentration; and lambda(z) is elimination rate constant.

  • Elimination half-life period (t1/2) associated with the terminal slope (Lambda z) [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours after study drug administration ]
    Elimination half-life associated with the terminal slope (lambda[z]) of the semi logarithmic drug concentration-time curve, calculated as 0.693/lambda(z).

  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: 42 days ]
    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant who received study drug without regard to possibility of causal relationship. An SAE is an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly.


Enrollment: 16
Study Start Date: December 2014
Study Completion Date: January 2015
Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Cohort 1
Elder participants will receive esketamine hydrochloride solution (containing 14 milligram (mg) of esketamine base per 100 microliter [mcl] of intranasal spray) by intranasal route using nasal spray pump at 0, 5 and 10 minutes on Day 1.
Drug: Esketamine
Esketamine 84 mg will be self-administered by participants as intranasal spray at 0, 5 and 10 minutes on Day 1.
Other Names:
  • Esketamine hydrochloride
  • JNJ-54135419
Experimental: Cohort 2
Younger adults will receive esketamine hydrochloride solution (containing 14 milligram (mg) of esketamine base per 100 microliter [mcl] of intranasal spray) by intranasal route using nasal spray pump at 0, 5 and 10 minutes on Day 1.
Drug: Esketamine
Esketamine 84 mg will be self-administered by participants as intranasal spray at 0, 5 and 10 minutes on Day 1.
Other Names:
  • Esketamine hydrochloride
  • JNJ-54135419

Detailed Description:
This is a single-center, 2-cohort, single-dose, open-label study. The duration of study will be approximately 42 days per participant. The study consists of 3 parts: Screening (that is, 28 days before study commences on Day 1) and open-label Treatment (Day 1) and Follow-up (up to Day 13). Esketamine will be administered by intranasal route (delivery of medications through the nasal mucosa) on Day 1. Participants' safety will be monitored throughout the study.
