Condition(s) targeted: Healthy

Intervention: Oral contraceptive (Drug); Canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research & Development, L.L.C.

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether there is a drug-drug interaction between multiple doses of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) and single doses of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel. The safety and tolerability of canagliflozin will also be assessed in healthy volunteers.

Clinical Details

Official title: An Open-label Drug-Drug Interaction Study in Healthy Female Subjects to Explore the Effects of Multiple Doses of JNJ-28431754 on the Pharmacokinetics and Safety of Single Doses of an Oral Contraceptive Containing Ethinyl Estradiol and Levonorgestrel

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Plasma concentrations of ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel

Secondary outcome: Plasma concentrations of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754)

Detailed description: This study will be an open-label (all volunteers and study staff know the identity of the assigned treatment), single-center, fixed-sequence study (all volunteers receive the same medication on the same days), to determine how canagliflozin (a drug currently being investigated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus) affects the pharmacokinetics (ie, how the body affects the drug) of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel. The study will consist of 3 phases; a screening phase, an open-label treatment phase, and an end-of-study (or follow-up) phase. Each volunteer will participate in the study for approximately 33 days.


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