Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum drug concentration (Cmax) of lacosamide in plasma. [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Area under the curve from 0 to the time of the last quantifiable concentration (AUC(0-t)) of lacosamide in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Area under the curve from 0 to infinity (AUC) of lacosamide in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to reach maximum plasma concentration (tmax) of lacosamide in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Terminal half-life (t½) of lacosamide in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Apparent total body clearance (CL/F) of lacosamide in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Apparent volume of distribution (Vz/F) of lacosamide in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Mean resident time (MRT) of lacosamide in plasma. [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • First order terminal elimination rate constant (λZ ) of lacosamide in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Maximum drug concentration (Cmax) of SPM12809 in plasma. [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Area under the curve from 0 to the time of the last quantifiable concentration (AUC(0-t)) of SPM12809 in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Area under the curve from 0 to infinity (AUC) of SPM12809 in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Time to reach maximum plasma concentration (tmax) of SPM12809 in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Terminal half-life (t½) of SPM12809 in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • First order terminal elimination rate constant (λZ ) of SPM12809 in plasma [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Total amount of drug excreted in urine (Ae) of lacosamide and SPM12809 [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Fraction of dose excreted in urine (fe) of lacosamide and SPM12809 [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Renal clearance (CLR) of lacosamide and SPM12809 [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • Apparent formation clearance of metabolites (CLfm/F) [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
  • AUC Ratio [ Time Frame: Multiple sampling from 0 to 72 hours following single dose in each treatment period ]
