This is a Phase 4, randomized, 2-way crossover, pharmacokinetic study of Lysteda (tranexamic
acid) tablets administered as single doses of 0. 65 g and 1. 3 g in fasting adolescent female
subjects ages 12-16 years with heavy menstrual bleeding.
Minimum age: 12 Years.
Maximum age: 16 Years.
- Generally healthy non-smoking (for at least 3 months) adolescent females 12-16 years
of age with a history of at least 1 year of cyclic heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB)
- Subjects must report regularly occurring menstrual periods ≤10 days in duration, with
21-45 days from the start of one period to the start of the next menstrual period
- Diagnosis of HMB based on the medical judgment of the Principal Investigator.
- Subjects should either be sexually inactive (abstinent) or be using one of the
following acceptable birth control methods and agree to continue its use throughout
- copper IUD in place for at least 3 months;
- barrier methods (condom, diaphragm) with spermicide for at least 1 month prior
to the first dose and throughout the study.
- Negative pregnancy test results
- Subject's legally authorized representative (e. g., parent, guardian) must voluntarily
sign a parental permission/informed consent form (ICF), and the subject must sign an
assent, before the conduct of any study procedure
- Breast-feeding, or a history of abortion in the last 6 months
- Known bleeding or coagulation disorders based on medical history and/or laboratory
- Known systemic hematologic diseases (e. g., all types of sickle-cell disease,
thalassemia of all types, multiple myeloma, hemolytic anemia)
- Clinical evidence of any significant chronic illness, including cardiovascular,
renal, neurologic, hepatic, endocrine, gastric, central nervous system disease, any

- Subjects whose sitting blood pressure is less than 90/60 mmHg at screening
- Subjects whose pulse is lower than 50 b. p.m. at screening
- Subjects whose PR interval is >200 msec at screening and prior to dosing
- Subjects whose QTc interval >450 msec
- Subjects with positive tests for hepatitis B, C, or HIV
