Brief Summary:
This study will be conducted in 2 separate stages, the first in adolescents and the second in children. Both Stages 1 and 2 will use an adaptive, single or multiple cohort open-label, single-treatment, fasting design examining the pharmacokinetic (PK) effects of up to 2 separate modified release (MR) formulations (B and C) of HLD200 (54 mg).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Drug: B-HLD200 54mg capsules Drug: C-HLD200 54mg capsules Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Both stages of this study will be divided into two phases: Screen and Active Period. During Screen, subjects will be screened over the course of 14 days, and washed off their existing ADHD medication during the final 5 days of outpatient screening. During the active period, subjects will receive a single treatment of B-HLD200 and plasma samples for PK will be collected during the night and through the next 48 hours. In addition, pediatric subjects will undergo math testing using the pen-and-paper PERMP both prior to and post dosing. This study procedure will be carried out across three sequential groups of 6 subjects until the full B-HLD200 formulation cohort of 18 subjects have completed all study procedures. Following the first cohort of 18 subjects, the entire sequence may be repeated in second subject cohort tested with C-HLD200.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Adolescents (13-17yrs)
Drug: B-HLD200 54mg capsules (Methylphenidate Modified Release B Formulation) or Drug: C-HLD200 54mg capsules (Methylphenidate Modified Release C Formulation)
Drug: B-HLD200 54mg capsules
Drug: C-HLD200 54mg capsules
Experimental: Children (6-11 yrs)
Drug: B-HLD200 54mg capsules (Methylphenidate Modified Release B Formulation) or Drug: C-HLD200 54mg capsules (Methylphenidate Modified Release C Formulation)
Drug: B-HLD200 54mg capsules
Drug: C-HLD200 54mg capsules

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PK [ Time Frame: 48hrs ]
    The primary endpoint is the rate and extent of absorption of MPH utilizing the following parameters: AUC0-tz, AUC0-∞, Cmax, Tmax, absorption lag time, λz, and t1/2elim.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety [ Time Frame: 48hrs ]
    A secondary endpoint will include safety and tolerability and will be assessed by clinical monitoring of blood pressure, pulse rate, laboratory data, suicidality and the reporting of adverse events.

  • Clinical value outside of the acceptable ranges, unless deemed NCS significant per the Investigator;
  • Positive history for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV);
  • Positive screening for illicit drug use, and/or current health conditions or use of medications that might confound the results of the study or increase risk to the subject;
  • Use of prescription medications (except ADHD medications) within 7 days and over-the counter medications (except birth control) within the 3 days preceding study enrollment, unless deemed acceptable by the Investigator and Clinical and/or Medical Monitor;
