Clinical Trials Related to Adalat CC (Nifedipine)

Nifedipine Bioavailability Study With Oral Single Doses Under Fasting and Fed Conditions [Completed]
The present study will be performed to investigate and to compare the in-vivo performance of the two investigational products Gen-nifedipine extended release, (previously referred to as Gen-Nifedipine XL (Genpharm ULC, Canada)) and Nifedipine(Bayer Healthcare AG manufactured as Adalat« XL«, Adalat« LA, Adalat« Crono, Adalat« OROS) by comparing their pharmacokinetic parameters after oral single dose administrations in the fasted and fed state.

Bioavailability Of A Single Dose Of Nifedipine Oral Solution Compared To Adalat Capsules In Healthy Female Volunteers [Completed]
Phase I, crossover, randomised, single dose, relative bioavailability clinical trial of a new oral solution of nifedipine compared to Adalat soft gelatine capsules in healthy female volunteers.

Nifedipine Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics When Used as a Tocolytic in Acute Threatened Preterm Labour [Recruiting]
Preterm birth is the leading cause of perinatal mortality and morbidity. According to WHO, 15 million children are born prematurely (gestational age < 37 weeks) in the world each year while 7% of them die because of complications associated with prematurity. Despite constant improvement of obstetrical care, the number of preterm births has increased over the last decades and prematurity is still the most frequent cause of prenatal hospitalization in industrialized countries. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as well as the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists recommend nifedipine as a first-line tocolytic in case of acute threatened preterm labour. Clinical experience show however an important variability in treatment response among pregnant women. In spite of its large use in obstetrics as a tocolytic agent, nifedipine is prescribed off-label. As a consequence no international consensus on optimal dose schedule has so far been proposed. Small sample size and heterogeneousness of tocolysis administration protocols make it difficult to compare the little data available on the pharmacokinetics of nifedipine in pregnant women. Nevertheless an important interindividual variability in concentrations has been identified (CV=12-76%) but very few studies have investigated the possible reasons of this variability in pregnant women. Genetic and environmental factors involved in drug distribution and metabolism (e. g. enzymatic activity, CYP 3A5 genotype) might partially explain variability in drug levels and therefore differences in treatment response. The goal of this study is to quantify the variability in nifedipine pharmacokinetics and identify potential genetic and non-genetic sources of variability in nifedipine pharmacokinetics in pregnant women. The relationship between concentration and treatment response will be evaluated and will serve to propose optimal dosage regimen to improve efficacy and reduce side effects associated with this treatment.

Nifedipine (Adalat CR, BAY A1040) High Dose PK/PD Study [Completed]
This is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, 6 x 3 cross-over study. All patients who meet the entry criteria will be required to stop taking any other anti-hypertensive agents than Adalat CR (controlled release), if taken, before starting 4 weeks (▒7days) open-label Adalat CR 40 mg once daily (OD) treatment phase (baseline treatment period). Of them, those who are confirmed with their eligibility as subjects for the present study at the end of the baseline treatment period will be randomly allocated to one of the 6 treatment sequences on the basis of a computer-generated randomization list. Subsequently, BAY A1040 CR tablet 40 mg OD, 40 mg twice daily (BID) or 80 mg OD will be administered to a total of 6 weeks, 2 weeks per each treatment period (Period 1-3) under double-blind conditions using BAY A1040 CR tablet 40 mg and its placebo as follows (Double-blind treatment period).

Pivotal Bioequivalence FDC Nifedipine / Candesartan vs. Loose Combination of Single Components, Fed [Completed]
Randomized, open label, single dose, 2-way crossover study to investigate the bioequivalence of a new fixed dose combination (FDC) tablet of nifedipine GITS and candesartan with the corresponding loose combination under fed conditions.
