  Purpose

This is a Phase I/IIa randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, PK, and efficacy of Retapamulin ointment, 1% applied twice daily for 3 or 5 days to the anterior nares of healthy adult subjects who are nasally colonized with S. aureus. Approximately 57 healthy subjects who are nasal carriers of S. aureus will be enrolled and stratified in a 2:1 ratio so that at least 38 persistent carriers and 19 intermittent carriers complete the study. Each eligible subject will participate in three screening visits, a treatment period, and two follow-up visits. Each subject's participation in the study will be approximately 6 to 10 weeks from screening to the last follow-up visit. Subjects will participate in up to three screening visits to determine S. aureus culture positivity and colonization status.

    Comparison of nasal S. aureus eradication in persistent carrier participants on 7, 12, and 33 days after treatment stratified by S. aureus carriage in the pharyngeal area

  • Percentage of Participants With Nasal Recolonization With S. Aureus on Study Days 12 and 33 Who Were Persistant Carriers Who Tested Positive in the Pharyngeal Region on Days 12 and 33 But Negative in the Nasal Region on Day 7 or Days 7 and 12 [ Time Frame: Days 7, 12, and 33 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage of participants that were recolonized on Day 12 (D12) and Day 33 (D33) that were negative (neg.) for S. aureus in the pharyngeal region on days 12 or 33 and negative in the nasal region on day 7 (D7) or days 7 and 12. Pharyngeal culture, PC; nasal culture, NC.

  • Prevalence of S. Aureus Nasal and Pharyngeal Carriage by Visit. [ Time Frame: Screening Visits 1 (Day -42 to Day -14), 2 (Day -11 to Day -4), and 3 (Day -11 to Day -4) and Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    All participants were assessed for nasal and pharyngeal carriage at Screening Visits 1, 2, and 3. Participants were randomized into the study only if they had positive cultures at screening visit 1 and screening visit 2 and/or screening visit 3. Day 1 data were collected only for those participants who were randomized into the study.

  • Number of Participants With a Nasal Culture Negative for MRSA (Methicillin-resistant S. Aureus) [ Time Frame: Days 7, 12, and 33 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    • child-bearing potential has a negative pregnancy test at screening. In addition, she must be willing to abstain from sexual intercourse or must use a nonhormone contraception such as an IUD or diaphragm with spermicide, in addition to having their male partner use condom/spermicide. This criterion must be followed from at least the commencement of her last normal period prior to the first dose of study medication or from screening (whichever is earlier) until completion of all follow-up procedures (33 days after the last dose of study medication).

  • The subject is able to understand and comply with requirements, instructions and restrictions listed in the consent form.
  • Signed and dated written informed consent prior to admission to the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Negative nasal culture for S. aureus on the first screen visit.
  • Negative nasal cultures for S. aureus on second and third screen visits.

  • Evidence of active rhinitis, sinusitis, or upper respiratory infection.
  • Within the judgment of the Principal Investigator and the Sponsor Medical Monitor, any clinically significant hematologic, endocrine, cardiovascular, hepatic, renal, gastrointestinal, and/or pulmonary disorder; any predisposing condition that might interfere with the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and/or excretion of drugs; or any clinically relevant abnormality identified on physical examination, 12-lead ECG, or clinical laboratories at screening. A single repeat for clinical laboratories or 12- lead ECG will be allowed to determine eligibility.
  • The subject's systolic BP is outside the range of 90-150mmHg, or diastolic BP is outside the range of 45-95mmHg or HR is outside the range of 50-100 bpm for female subjects or 40-100 bpm for male subjects.
  • Subjects who have a history of allergy to the study drug or drugs of this class, or a history of drug or other allergy that, in the opinion of the investigator, contraindicates participation in the trial. In addition, if heparin is used during PK sampling, subjects with a history of sensitivity to heparin or heparin-induced thrombocytopenia should not be enrolled.
  • The use of prescription or non-prescription drugs, including vitamins, herbal and dietary supplements (including St. John's Wort) within 7 days (or 14 days if the drug is a potential enzyme inducer) or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of study medication, unless in the opinion of Investigator and Sponsor the medication will not interfere with the study procedures or compromise subject safety. Use of nasal medications is strictly prohibited from 7 days prior to the first screening visit and then 7 days prior to the 2nd screening visit through the final follow-up visit.
  • Treatment with an investigational drug within 30 days or five half-lives (whichever is longer) preceding the first dose of study medication.
  • The subject has a history of alcohol or substance abuse or dependence within 12 months of the study: History of regular alcohol consumption averaging > 7 drinks/wk for women or > 14 drinks/wk for men. 1 drink is equivalent to 12g alcohol = 5 oz (150ml) of wine or 12oz (360ml) of beer or 1.5 oz (45ml) of 80 proof distilled spirits within six months of screening.
  • Positive for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) antibody, hepatitis B virus surface antigen or hepatitis C virus antibody at screening.
