Condition(s) targeted: Healthy Subjects; Nausea and Vomiting, Chemotherapy-Induced

Intervention: GW679769 Oral Tablets (Drug); dexamethasone oral tablets & intravenous (Drug); ondansetron oral tablets & intravenous (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: GlaxoSmithKline

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):

GW679769 may affect liver enzymes that metabolize dexamethasone and ondansetron. This study is designed to test the safety and the extent of the GW679769 affect on dexamethasone and ondansetron levels in humans.

Clinical Details

Official title: An Open-Label, Phase I Study to Assess the Pharmacokinetic Interaction Between Repeat Doses of Oral Casopitant [GW679769] and Intravenous and Oral Doses of Dexamethasone and Intravenous and Oral Doses of Ondansetron When Administered in Healthy Adult Subjects

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

Primary outcome: Part A: Period 1 & 2: Plasma levels of casopitant, dexamethasone, & ondansetron will be checked on Day 1, 2 and/or 3. Part B: Period 1, 2 & 3: Plasma levels of casopitant, dexamethasone, & ondansetron will be checked on Day 1, 2 and/or 3.

Secondary outcome:

Safety is evaluated by: Clinical Lab Tests done

Vitals Signs taken & Adverse Events monitored

12 lead ECGs & Serum Pepsinogen level tests


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 55 Years. Gender(s): Both.
