Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic endpoints will include darapladib AUC (0-τ), Cmax and Tmax. Metabolites pharmacokinetic parameters AUC (0-τ), Cmax and Tmax will be evaluated as data permit. [ Time Frame: After 10 days of repeat dosing ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical safety data (spontaneous AE reporting, vital signs, nursing/physician observation, and clinical laboratory tests) will be the primary safety endpoint [ Time Frame: Over 10 days of repeat dosing ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: July 2010
Study Completion Date: October 2010
Primary Completion Date: October 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: moderate hepatic impaired subjects Drug: darapladib
darapladib 40 mg oral dose
Experimental: normal healthy volunteers Drug: darapladib
darapladib 40 mg oral dose

Detailed Description:

This study is an open-label, non-randomised study to assess the pharmacokinetics and safety/tolerability of repeat oral 40 mg doses of darapladib in subjects with moderate hepatic impairment (as defined by a Child-Pugh score of 7-9) in comparison to matched healthy volunteers.

The hepatically impaired and healthy volunteer groups will receive repeat oral doses of darapladib for 10 consecutive days. The pharmacokinetics of darapladib and its metabolites will be evaluated. The effect of liver impairment on the plasma protein binding of darapladib and metabolites will also be determined as data permit. Safety will be assessed by clinical laboratory tests (hematology, chemistry and urinalysis), vital signs (blood pressure and heart rate measurements), 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) and monitoring for adverse events (AEs).

Subjects will be housed in the clinical unit from the evening before first dose until 24 hours after the final dose of 10 days of repeat dosing. A follow-up period will include 2 visits, one of which will be conducted approximately 10-14 days from the last dose of study drug and the second visit will be 35 days +/- one week after the last dose of study drug

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • A male or female is eligible to enter and participate in this study if he/she is a healthy subject OR a moderately hepatically impaired subject with a Child-Pugh score of 7-9.
  • Age between 18 and 65 years inclusive, at the time of signing the informed consent.

  • Capable of giving written informed consent, which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the consent form.
  • QTcB < 480 msec in all subjects, including those with bundle branch block at screening ECG
  • Healthy subjects only: AST, ALT, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin less than or equal to 1.5xULN (isolated bilirubin greater than 1.5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin less than 35%)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Hepatically Impaired Group:
  • A positive pre-study drug/alcohol screen, except where subject has prescription for pain or anxiolytic medication that would cause positive test.
  • Subjects using any concurrent prohibited medication, and/or receiving concurrent therapy that cannot be safely discontinued and is not approved by the investigator
  • The subject has participated in a clinical trial and has received an investigational product within the following time period prior to the first dosing day in the current study: 30 days, 5 half-lives or twice the duration of the biological effect of the investigational product (whichever is longer)
  • Exposure to more than four new chemical entities within 12 months prior to the first dosing day.
