OBJECTIVE Glycopyrronium (NVA237), a novel once-daily long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA), has recently been approved for maintenance treatment of COPD. This study evaluated the effect of organic cation transporter inhibition on inhaled glycopyrronium disposition using cimetidine as a probe inhibitor. METHODS In this open-label, two-period,(More)
To compare the pharmacokinetics of intravenous (IV), oral immediate-release (IR) and oral modified-release (MR) formulations of mavoglurant in healthy subjects, and to assess the food effect on the MR formulation’s input characteristics. Plasma concentration-time data from two clinical studies in healthy volunteers were pooled and analysed using NONMEM®.(More)
A simple, sensitive, and selective liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry method was validated for the identification and quantification of mavoglurant (AFQ056) in human plasma. The chromatographic separation was performed using a Cosmosil 5 C18 (150 × 4.6 mm, 5 μm) column at 40 ± 0.5 °C with a mobile phase consisting of acetic acid in water (0.1%,(More)
Mavoglurant (MVG) is an antagonist at the metabotropic glutamate receptor-5 currently under clinical development at Novartis Pharma AG for the treatment of central nervous system diseases. The aim of this study was to develop and optimise a population whole-body physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (WBPBPK) model for MVG, to predict the impact of drug–drug(More)
Whole-body physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models are increasingly used in drug development for their ability to predict drug concentrations in clinically relevant tissues and to extrapolate across species, experimental conditions and sub-populations. A whole-body PBPK model can be fitted to clinical data using a Bayesian population approach.(More)
