Condition(s) targeted: Healthy

Intervention: Niaspan (Drug); TRIA-662 (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Cortria Corporation

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Eugenio A Cefali, PharmD, PhD., Study Chair, Affiliation: Cortria Corporation


The objective of this study is to compare the absorption of a niacin metabolite (1-methylnicotinamide, 1-MNA) from TRIA-662 (1-methylnicotinamide chloride)relative to the production of 1-MNA from Niaspan. The 1-MNA information obtained from this study will be used to adjust the top dose of a planned TRIA-622 efficacy study.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Single-Dose, Randomized, Open-Label, Crossover, Comparative Bioavailability Study of TRIA-662 500 mg Immediate-Release Tablets and NIASPAN 1000 mg Extended-Release Tablets in Healthy Male and Female Volunteers Under Fed Conditions

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Bio-availability Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Primary outcome: ANOVA and 90% Confidence Intervals on ln-transformed, baseline corrected molar urine recovery data of niacin metabolites.

Secondary outcome:

Peak plasma concentration (Cmax)of each niacin metabolite

Plasma area under the curve to the last measureable timepoint, AUCt


Minimum age: 35 Years. Maximum age: 65 Years. Gender(s): Both.
