Condition(s) targeted: Hypertension

Intervention: Reference Treatment: 5 mg amlodipine + 50 mg losartan (Drug); Reference Treatment:5 mg amlodipine + 100 mg losartan (Drug); FDC 5/50 amlodipine/ losartan (Drug); FDC 5/100 amlodipine /losartan (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

This is a three-period, three sequence, reference replicated, cross-over study to determine the bioequivalence of two amlodipine and losartan FDC tablet formulations FDC5/50 and FDC5/100 (GSK2944406; 5 mg amlodipine and 50 mg and 100 mg losartan) to reference amlodipine and losartan tablets co-administered in two groups enrolling 102 healthy adult male and female subjects under fasting conditions. A description of each treatment is provided below: A (Reference) = 1 x 5 mg amlodipine tablet and 1 x 50 mg losartan tablet. B (FDC5/50) = 1 x 5 mg amlodipine and 50 mg losartan tablet C (Reference) = 1 x 5 mg amlodipine tablet and 1 x 100 mg losartan tablet D (FDC5/100) = 1 x 5 mg amlodipine and100 mg losartan tablet The treatments will be administered in accordance with the randomisation schedule as. Group 1: A → A → B or A → B → A or B → A → A Group 2: C → C → D or C → D → C or D → C → C All subjects will attend a screening visit within 28 days of their first dosing period (Day 1). The baseline assessments will be conducted the day before the first dosing. In each treatment period, subjects will be admitted to the clinic in the evening before Day 1. All subjects will receive a single oral dose of amlodipine and losartan in the morning on Day 1. All the subjects will remain in the clinical unit until completion of all assessments at 24 hours post-dose on Day 2 including collection of the 24 hour post-dose PK sample. Subjects will return to the clinic for pharmacokinetic samples at 36, 48, 72 and 96 hours post-dose. The three treatment periods will be separated by a washout period of 10-17 days. Upon completion of the last dosing period, or early withdrawal, subjects will return to the clinical unit within 14-21 days for a follow up visit.

Official title: An Open-label, Randomised, Single Dose, Three-way Crossover, Parallel Groups Study to Determine the Bioequivalence of Two Fixed Dose Combination (FDC) Tablet Formulations of Amlodipine and Losartan FDC5/50 and FDC5/100 to Respective Reference Dosages in Healthy Adult Male and Female Subjects Under Fasting Conditions

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Bio-equivalence Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Plasma pharmacokinetic parameters for amlodipine and losartan in relevant treatments

Secondary outcome:

Plasma pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters tmax, Clast, percentage AUCex and t½ for amlodipine and losartan

Plasma Pharmacokinetic parameters for carboxylic acid (active losartan metabolite)

Measure of clinical laboratory test values to access safety and tolerability

Safety assessed by vital sign measurements

Number of subjects with adverse events (AE)s


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 65 Years. Gender(s): Both.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Age & Gender: Male or female between 18 and 65 years of age inclusive, at the time of

signing the informed consent.

kilogram/meter squared.

- Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin limit of normal (ULN).

- Normal electrocardiogram (ECG) measurements. Average QT duration corrected for heart

rate by Fridericia's formula (QTcF) <450 millisecond (msec) or QTcF <480 msec in subjects with Bundle Branch Block based on an average from three ECGs obtained over a brief recording period.

- Female subjects of non-child bearing potential. Females of child bearing potential

are eligible to enter if they are not pregnant and willing to use protocol-specified methods of contraception to prevent pregnancy.

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


- Capable of giving written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

- The subject has a positive: drug/alcohol screen, Hepatitis, human immunodeficiency

virus(HIV) screen

- Subject with systolic blood pressure less than 90 mmHg or diastolic less than 60 mm

Hg irrespective of associated symptoms at the time of admission

- If there is a drop in 20 mmHg of systolic pressure (and a 10 mmHg drop in diastolic)

and a 20 beats per minute increase in heart rate between supine measurement and after two minutes standing at the time of admission.

- Current or chronic history of liver disease, or known hepatic or biliary

abnormalities (with the exception of Gilbert's syndrome or asymptomatic gallstones).

- A positive pre-study drug/alcohol at the time of admission.

- Abuse of alcohol

dosing day.
