Condition(s) targeted: Acute Coronary Syndrome

Intervention: Losmapimod (Drug); Moxifloxacin (Drug); Losmapimod matched Placebo (Drug); Moxifloxacin Placebo (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: GlaxoSmithKline

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
GSK Clinical Trials, Study Director, Affiliation: GlaxoSmithKline

Summary

This will be a double-blind, 4-period, randomized, cross-over study conducted in healthy adult subjects. The purpose of this study is to characterize the effect of orally administered losmapimod on the electrocardiogram (ECG) parameters with a focus on cardiac repolarization as measured by the corrected QT interval (QTc) duration, compared with placebo and moxifloxacin. Moxifloxacin (Avelox) is a drug with a known potential to create a mild QTc interval prolongation; therefore, it will serve as a positive control to validate the ability of this study to detect a change in the QTc interval. All subjects will participate in 4 study periods separated by a minimum washout period of 5 days. Each subject will receive one of 4 regimens (A = Losmapimod 7. 5 milligram [mg] Twice daily [BID] x 5 days, B = Losmapimod 20 mg Once daily [QD] x 5 days, C = moxifloxacin 400 mg on Day 5, D = Losmapimod matched placebo and moxifloxacin placebo x 5 days) in each of the 4 planned study periods in a randomized, cross-over fashion. Subjects will be assigned to one of four treatment sequences following a Williams design (ABDC, BCAD, CDBA, DACB). Follow-up visit will occur 10 to 14 days after end of Period 4

evaluation including medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests and cardiac safety monitoring. A subject with a clinical abnormality or laboratory parameters outside the reference range for the population being studied may be included only if the Investigator and the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Medical Monitor agree that the finding is unlikely to introduce additional risk factors and will not interfere with the study procedures

- Male or female between 18 and 65 years of age inclusive, at the time of signing the

informed consent
