  Purpose

The purpose of the trial is to demonstrate a faster recovery from neuromuscular block induced by 1.2 mg/kg Zemuron® after reversal at 3 minutes by 16.0 mg/kg of Org 25969 compared with recovery after a neuromuscular block induced by 1.0 mg/kg succinylcholine.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
rocuronium plus Org 25969
Drug: Sugammadex
Subjects were to receive an intubating dose of 1.2 mg/kg rocuronium followed by 16.0 mg/kg Org 25969 three minutes after the start of rocuronium administration.
Other Name: Org 25969
Active Comparator: 2
succinylcholine
Drug: succinylcholine
Subjects were to receive an intubation dose of 1.0 mg/kg succinylcholine and allowed to recovery spontaneously from neuromuscular blockade.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • ASA Class 1 or 2;
  • 18 to 65 years of age (inclusive);
  • Scheduled for elective surgical procedure under general anesthesia requiring a short duration of neuromuscular block with the use of rocuronium or succinylcholine and requiring endotracheal intubation;
  • Scheduled for surgery in supine position;
  • Body mass index (BMI) < 30;
  • Given written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with ischemic heart disease or history of myocardial infarction within the last year;
  • Subjects in whom a difficult intubation is expected due to anatomical malformations;
  • Subjects known or suspected to have neuromuscular disorders impairing neuromuscular blockade and/or significant renal dysfunction;
  • Subjects known or suspected to have a (family) history of malignant hyperthermia;
  • Subjects known or suspected to have an allergy to narcotics, muscle relaxants, midazolam, anesthetics or other medications used during surgery;
  • Subjects receiving medication known to interfere with neuromuscular blocking agents such as anticonvulsants, antibiotics and Mg2+;
  • Subjects in whom the use of neostigmine and/or glycopyrrolate may be contraindicated;
  • Female subjects who are pregnant or breast-feeding;
  • Females subjects of childbearing potential not using an acceptable method of birth control [condom or diaphragm with spermicide, vasectomized partner (> 6 months), IUD, abstinence];
  • Subjects who had already participated in a Org 25969 trial including Protocol 19.4.303;
