Detailed Description:

In this Phase I, open-label, 3-period crossover trial the potential pharmacokinetic interaction between TMC125 and fluconazole and between TMC125 and voriconazole will be investigated. Fluconazole and voriconazole are triazole antifungal agents.

Fluconazole and voriconazole are inhibitors of CYP isoenzymes 2C19, 2C9 and CYP3A4. Fluconazole is metabolized by the liver to a small extent. Approximately 80% of the administered fluconazole dose appears in the urine in unchanged form. Voriconazole is metabolized by CYP2C19, 2C9 and 3A4. TMC125 is also metabolized by CYP3A, 2C9 and 2C19. Because of the effect of fluconazole and voriconazole on the metabolic pathways relevant for TMC125 metabolism, concomitant administration of TMC125 and fluconazole or voriconazole might increase TMC125 pharmacokinetics. Because of the effect of TMC125 on the metabolic pathways relevant for voriconazole metabolism, concomitant administration of TMC125 and voriconazole might also modify voriconazole pharmacokinetics. Since the elimination of fluconazole is mainly via the kidneys, an effect of TMC125 on fluconazole pharmacokinetics is not expected. The current trial aims to assess the 2-way pharmacokinetic interaction between TMC125 and fluconazole, and between TMC125 and voriconazole, to provide dosing recommendations for combined use in the treatment of HIV infected patients.In this trial the pharmacokinetic interaction between TMC125 and fluconazole, and between TMC125 and voriconazole, all at steady-state will be investigated in 18 healthy subjects. During the first two sessions, each subject will receive 2 treatments (Treatments A and B) in a randomized way. In Treatment A, 200 mg TMC125 twice a day. will be administered from Day 1 to Day 7 with an additional morning dose on Day 8. In Treatment B, 200 mg fluconazole once a day in the morning will be administered from Day 1 to Day 16, co-administered with 200 mg TMC125 twice a day from Day 9 to Day 16.

These sessions are followed by a third session, Treatment C, in which 400 mg voriconazole twice a day will be administered on Day 1 and 200 mg voriconazole twice a day will be administered from Day 2 to Day 15, with an additional morning dose on Day 16. From Day 9 to Day 15, 200 mg TMC125 twice a day will be co-administered, with an additional morning dose on Day 16. All TMC125 and fluconazole intakes will be under fed conditions, within 10 minutes after a meal. Voriconazole will be administered 1.5 hour before a meal. Between subsequent treatment sessions, there will be a washout period of at least 2 weeks. Full pharmacokinetic profiles will be determined for one dosing interval (12 hours) for TMC125 on Day 8 of Treatment A and on Day 16 of Treatments B and C. For fluconazole, full pharmacokinetic profiles will be determined for one dosing interval (24 hours) on Days 8 and 16 of Treatment B. For voriconazole, full pharmacokinetic profiles will be determined for one dosing interval (12 hours) on Days 8 and 16 of Treatment C. Safety and tolerability will be monitored continuously throughout the trial. Treatment A: 200 mg TMC125 twice daily, orally from Day 1 to 7 and a morning dose on Day 8. Treatment B: 200 mg fluconazole once daily, orally from Day 1 to 16, co-administered with 200 mg TMC125 twice daily from Day 9 to 16. Treatment C: 400 mg voriconazole twice daily, orally on Day 1 and 200 mg voriconazole twice daily will be administered from Day 2 to 15, with a morning dose on Day 16. From Day 9 to 15, 200 mg TMC125 twice daily will be co-administered, with a morning dose on Day 16.

  • Clinical evidence or history of long QT syndrome and history of additional risk factors for Torsade de Pointes, such as cardiomyopathy, heart failure, hypokalemia, family history of known Long QT Syndrome, or sudden unexplained death at a young age (= 40 years) in a firstdegree relative (i.e., biological parent, sibling, or offspring)
  • Clinically relevant heart rhythm disturbances known or suggested by history, or on 12-lead ECG at screening or on Day 1 (predose) of the first treatment period
  • Electrolyte abnormalities (hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia), grade 2 or greater, within 21 days prior to intake of the investigational medication
  • History of galactose intolerance, lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption
  • Use of concomitant medication, including over-the-counter products and dietary supplements
  • Systemic over-the-counter medication must have been discontinued at least 7 days prior to the first dose of study medication

  • Participation in an investigational drug trial within 60 days prior to the first intake of trial medication
  • Donation of blood or plasma within the 60 days preceding the first drug intake
  • Having participated in more than 1 trial with TMC125 (etravirine), TMC120 (dapirivine) and/or TMC278 (rilpivirine, formerly known as R278474) or having developed rash, erythema or urticaria while participating in a trial with the aforementioned compounds
