|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|HIV Infections||Drug: Ribavirin Drug: Raltegravir||Phase 1|
Phase I (study day 1 - 14):
- 14 healthy volunteers with a documented negative HIV-1 antibody test during screening procedures will be enrolled.
- On day 1, fasted subjects will be administered ribavirin 800 mg without food (witnessed dosing). This will be followed be a 12 hour detailed pharmacokinetic assessment; blood sampling drawn at 0 (pre-dose), 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 12 hours.
- This will be followed by a wash-out period.
- As steady state pharmacokinetics of ribavirin are not reached for several weeks, single dosing pharmacokinetics will be assessed in this study
Phase II (study days 15 - 19):
- On day 15, subjects will commence raltegravir 400 mg twice daily. Subjects will attend for safety visits and witnessed dosing during this phase.
- Day 19 - after 4 days of dosing when steady state pharmacokinetics has been reached, subjects will attend for a 12 hour detailed pharmacokinetic visit where following witnessed administration of raltegravir 400 mg without food, blood sampling will be drawn at 0 (pre-dose), 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 12 hours post dose for the assessment of raltegravir plasma exposure.
Phase III (study day 20):
• Subjects will be administered raltegravir 400 mg and ribavirin 800 mg without food. This will be followed by a 12 hour detailed pharmacokinetic assessment with blood sampling drawn at 0 (pre-dose), 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 12 hours.

Ribavirin then Raltegravir + Ribavirin
800mg once daily
Other Name: Copegus
400mg twice daily
- Ribavirin Alone Maximum Plasma Concentration [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]On day 1 participants were administered a single dose of Ribavirin 800mg and then intensive pharmacokinetic blood samples were collected at 0 (pre-dose), 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 12 hours
- Raltegravir Alone Maximum Plasma Concentration [ Time Frame: Day 19 ]After a 14 day wash out participants took raltegravir 400 mg twice daily for 4 days. on day 19 they attended for intensive pharmacokinetic tests at 0 (pre-dose of raltegravir 400mg)then 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 12 hours
- Ribavirin Maximum Plasma Concentration When Co-administered [ Time Frame: Day 20 ]On day 20 participants were administered raltegravir 400 mg and ribavirin 800 mg this was followed by intensive pharmacokinetic testing at 0 (pre-dose), 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 12 hours.
- Raltegravir Maximum Plasma Concentrations When Co-administered [ Time Frame: Day 20 ]On day 20 participants were administered raltegravir 400 mg and ribavirin 800 mg this was followed by intensive pharmacokinetic testing at 0 (pre-dose), 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 12 hours.
