Condition(s) targeted: Infections, Bacterial

Intervention: GSK1322322 (Drug); EE/NE (Drug); GSK1322322 Placebo (Drug); EE/NE Placebo (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Withdrawn

GSK Clinical Trials, Study Director, Affiliation: GlaxoSmithKline


This study is being conducted to confirm that GSK1322322 has no negative impact on hormone levels and contraceptive efficacy when co-administered with a frequently prescribed oral contraceptive thereby to facilitate the use of GSK1322322 in women of child-bearing potential receiving oral contraceptive (OC) pre-infection. This study is designed to investigate steady-state plasma ethinyl estradiol (EE) and norethindrone (NE) pharmacokinetic (PK) following administration of Ortho-Novum (EE/NE) 1 tablet every 24 hours (q24h) fed with and without GSK1322322 1500 milligram (mg) q12h fed. Each subject will participate in the study for approximately 12 weeks: a 30 day screening period, 4-week run-in period, three 7 day treatment periods, and a 3-5 day follow-up period. The study is planned to enroll approximately 24 subjects (18 active/6 placebo).

Clinical Details

Official title: A Phase 1, Randomized, Single Blind Study to Evaluate the Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Safety of an Oral Contraceptive Containing Norethindrone and Ethinyl Estradiol When Co-administered With GSK1322322 in Healthy Adult Women of Childbearing Age Who Are of Non-Childbearing Potential Due to Surgical Sterilization or IUD Placement (PDF112163)

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics/Dynamics Study, Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 45 Years. Gender(s): Female.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Healthy as determined by a responsible and experienced physician, based on a medical

evaluation including medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests, and cardiac monitoring. A subject with a clinical abnormality or laboratory parameters outside the reference range for the population being studied may be included only if the Investigator feels that the finding is unlikely to introduce additional risk factors and will not interfere with the study procedures.

- Non smoking female (of childbearing age), between 18 and 45 years of age inclusive,

at the time of signing the informed consent.

- A female subject is eligible to participate if she is of: Non-childbearing potential

defined as pre-menopausal females with a documented tubal ligation or hysterectomy without oophorectomy (at least one functioning ovary required) or child bearing age with the presence of non-drug eluting intra uterine device (IUD) i. e. copper. NOTE: The IUD placement needs to be confirmed by an obstetrician-gynecologist.

- Subjects must be willing to use EE/NE in combination with one of the following

appropriate contraceptive methods from at least 14 days prior to the first dose of study drug until completion of the follow-up visit Complete abstinence from intercourse for at least 14 days prior to the first dose of IP, throughout the study, and for the subsequent post study monitoring or; A barrier method plus a spermicide (e. g., condom or diaphragm with spermicidal foam/gel/cream/ suppository for at least 14 days prior to the first dose of IP throughout the study, and for the subsequent post study monitoring or Sterilization (vasectomy) of male partner prior to commencement of female subject's last normal menstrual period prior to IP administration and the male partner is the sole partner for that female subject

- Body weight >=50 kilograms (kg) (110 pounds [lbs]) and <114kg (<250 lbs) and body

mass index within the range 19 to 32 kg/meter^2 (inclusive).

- Alanine aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin <=1. 5xupper limit of

normal (ULN) (isolated bilirubin >1. 5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%) at screening and check-in (repeat allowed at check-in only).

- QT interval corrected for heart rate by Bazett's formula (QTcB) < 450 millisecond

(msec) at screening and check-in.

- Capable of giving written informed consent, which includes compliance with the

requirements and restrictions listed in the consent form Exclusion Criteria:

- Pregnant females as determined by positive human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) test at

screening or prior to dosing.

- History of any condition that would contraindicate Ortho-Novum administration
