To evaluate the single-dose and steady-state pharmacokinetics of desloratadine and fexofenadine in desloratadine slow metabolizers. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of desloratadine compared to fexofenadine following single and multiple oral doses administered to desloratadine slow metabolizers.
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Randomized, Double-blind, Repeat-dose, Crossover Study to Evaluate the Pharmacokinetics, Safety, and Tolerability of Desloratadine (Clarinex®) Compared to Fexofenadine (Allegra®) in Healthy Adults Who Have Been Identified as Slow Metabolizers for Desloratadine.
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Endpoints will be the AUC and Cmax for desloratadine, 3-OH desloratadine, and fexofenadine. [ Time Frame: Serial, Trough, and Terminal blood samples over 8 days. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Endpoints will include Tmax, elimination half-life (t1/2), and accumulation index, as the data permit. [ Time Frame: Serial, Trough, and Terminal blood samples over 8 days. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
