First received: May 3, 2012
Last updated: May 7, 2012
Last verified: May 2012
This study has been designed in compliance with the ICH-E14 guideline 2005 to evaluate the QT/QTc interval prolongation and proarrhythmic potential for non-antiarrhythmic drugs.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Drug: sotrastaurin Drug: placebo to sotrastaurin Drug: Avelox Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Randomized, Partially Blinded, 4-period, Crossover Study to Assess the Effects of Single-dose AEB071 Administration (300 and 900 mg) on Electrocardiographic QT Intervals Compared to Placebo in Healthy Volunteers

Further study details as provided by Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals ):

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in the corrected QT interval (QTc) in healthy volunteers as compared to placebo. [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in concentration of exposure-response AEB071 and AEE800 (a metabolite of AEB071) concentrations compared to cardiac repolarization intervals [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
  • Tolerability of 300 and 900 mg of AEB071. [ Time Frame: 72 hours ]

Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: July 2009
Primary Completion Date: September 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: AEB071 300 mg Drug: sotrastaurin
Experimental: AEB071 900 mg Drug: sotrastaurin
Placebo Comparator: Placebo to AEB071 Drug: placebo to sotrastaurin
Active Comparator: Moxifloxacin Drug: Avelox
