Condition(s) targeted: Healthy

Intervention: LDLL600 (Drug); Brevibloc (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: AOP Orphan Pharmaceuticals AG

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Ivan Ulc, MD, Principal Investigator, Affiliation: Cepha s.r.o


The study will compare the pharmacokinetics (PK), safety and tolerability of long-term infusion of lyophilized landiolol (LDLL600) against esmolol (Brevibloc) by measurement of blood concentrations of landiolol, esmolol and their metabolites, and by monitoring systemic cardiovascular and local tolerability, blood pressure (BP), ECG including heart rate (HR) and adverse events (AEs).

Clinical Details

Official title: A Single Centre Prospective, Randomized, Double Blind, Crossover, Pharmacokinetic, Safety and Tolerability Study to Compare Long-term Infusion Administration of LDLL600 Against Esmolol in Healthy Volunteers.

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:



Local Tolerability

Secondary outcome: Pharmacodynamics (PD)

Detailed description: 12 subjects will be administered LDLL600 and Brevibloc in a double-blind, randomized, cross-over setting. PK, systemic cardiovascular and local tolerability and safety of 24-hour long infusions of three dose levels of both Investigational Medicinal Products (IMPs) during each treatment period will be assessed. Each treatment period will consist of: Dose level 1 (LOW) for 2 hours (h) Dose level 2 (MEDIUM)for 2 hours Dose level 3 (HIGH)for 2 hours PK and tolerability observation at dose level 3, 2 or 1 will be continued for 18 hours in order to end up with a total infusion period of 24 h Post-infusion follow-up (FU)for 6 hours after infusion termination The duration of the wash-out period between treatment periods will be at least two days. Each subject, if confirmed eligible, will complete two treatment periods in total. In case of poor tolerability, alternative dosing schemes will be followed.
