AIMS To characterize the effects of levofloxacin on QT interval in healthy subjects and the most appropriate oral positive control treatments for International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) E14 QT/QTc studies. METHODS Healthy subjects received a single dose of levofloxacin (1000 or 1500 mg), moxifloxacin (400 mg) or placebo in a four-period crossover(More)
AIMS The aims of this study were three-fold and were to (i) investigate the effect of food (fasted and fed state) on the degree of QT prolongation caused by moxifloxacin under the rigorous conditions of a TQT study, (ii) differentiate the effects on QTc that arise from changes in PK from those arising as a result of electrophysiological changes attributable(More)
AIMS Food is known to shorten the QT(c) (QT(c)I and QT(c)F) interval and has been proposed as a non-pharmacological method of confirming assay sensitivity in thorough QT (TQT) studies and early phase studies in medicines research. Intake of food leads to a rise in insulin levels together with the release of C-peptide in equimolar amounts. However, it has(More)
The interest in adaptive study design is evident from the growing amount of clinical research employing this model in the mid to later stages of medicines development. Little has been published on the practical application and merits of adaptive study design in early phase clinical research. This paper describes a retrospective analysis performed on a(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to compare alginate products with the same amount of active ingredients but different dosage forms, in the suppression of reflux provoked by a standard meal in healthy human volunteers, using ambulatory oesophageal pH monitoring. METHODS This was a single centre, randomised, open, three-period crossover, controlled study(More)
The pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of rivastigmine were compared in Japanese and white healthy participants who were given ascending single doses of the novel rivastigmine transdermal patch. Rivastigmine patch strengths were 4.6 mg/24 h (5 cm2, 9 mg rivastigmine loaded dose), 9.5 mg/24 h (10 cm2, 18 mg), and 13.3 mg/24 h (15 cm2, 27 mg) (per label)(More)
AIMS Lomitapide is a licensed treatment for patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia in the USA, the EU, Canada, and Mexico. This study was conducted to compare the pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics, safety, and tolerability of lomitapide between Japanese and Caucasian subjects with elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C)(More)
In this randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study, the safety of therapeutic (675 mg) and supra-therapeutic (2,700 mg) doses of nitazoxanide was evaluated in accordance with the ICH E14 guidelines. Fifty six (56) subjects participated in four treatment periods and received single doses of nitazoxanide 675 mg, nitazoxanide 2,700 mg, moxifloxacin 400(More)
This article attempts to define terminology and to describe a process for writing adaptive, early phase study protocols which are transparent, self-intuitive and uniform. It provides a step by step guide, giving templates from projects which received regulatory authorisation and were successfully performed in the UK. During adaptive studies evolving data is(More)
