  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine if the relative difference in Pharmacokinetics (PK) between extensive metabolizers (EMs) and poor metabolizers (PMs) is the same with desvenlafaxine SR and venlafaxine ER when a single dose is administered.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Concentration (Cmax) of Venlafaxine After Single Dose of Venlafaxine Extended-release (VEN ER) by Metabolizer Status [ Time Frame: single dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cmax is a measure of drug metabolism and presented as least squares geometric mean with 90% Confidence Interval. Variations in drug metabolism among individuals can be due to differences in genetic expression (phenotype) of Cytochrome P450 (CYP450) enzymes. Enzyme CYP2D6 has 4 metabolizer phenotypes: poor (PM), intermediate (IM), extensive (EM), and ultrarapid (UM) metabolizers.

  • Area Under the Concentration-time Curve (AUC) of Venlafaxine After Single Dose of VEN ER by Metabolizer Status [ Time Frame: single dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUC is drug level over time and measures drug metabolism. Variations in drug metabolism among individuals can be due to differences in genetic expression (phenotype) of Cytochrome P450 (CYP450) enzymes. Enzyme CYP2D6 has 4 metabolizer phenotypes: poor (PM), intermediate (IM), extensive (EM), ultrarapid (UM) metabolizers.

  • Maximum Concentration (Cmax) of Desvenlafaxine After Single Dose of VEN ER by Metabolizer Status [ Time Frame: single dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Healthy men and women aged 18 to 55 years. Healthy as determined by the investigator on the basis of medical history and physical examination, laboratory test results, vital signs, and 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG).
  • History of being a nonsmoker for at least 1 year.
  • Subjects have to be either extensive CYP2D6 metabolizers with a normal complement of 1 or 2 fully active enzyme gene alleles or poor CYP2D6 metabolizers (lack of active enzyme gene alleles) via genetic testing of a blood sample.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Presence or history of any significant cardiovascular, hepatic, renal, respiratory, gastrointestinal, endocrine, immunologic, dermatologic, hematologic, neurologic, or psychiatric disease or any severe conditions of the ears, eyes or throat (such as glaucoma or increased intraocular pressure).
  • Known or suspected alcohol abuse or consumption of more than 2 standard units per day (a standard unit equals 12 ounces of beer, 1½ ounces of 80-proof alcohol, or 6 ounces of wine) within the past 6 months.
  • Known or suspected current abuse of prohibited drugs or other substances. Use of any hormonal therapy within 30 days before study day -1 until the end of the partial inpatient confinement period.
