Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • area under the plasma concentration-time curve during a dosing interval (AUCτ) and observed maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Multiple assessments during day 8 and 9. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Venlafaxine and O-desmethylvenlafaxine (ODV) on Day 8 (after multiple dose administration of venlafaxine for 4 days) and Day 9 (after concomitant administration of venlafaxine and ticagrelor):

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Venlafaxine and ODV on Days 8 and 9: time to Cmax (tmax) [ Time Frame: Multiple assessments during day 1 and 9-11 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Ticagrelor and AR-C124910XX on Day 1 (after single dose administration of ticagrelor) and Day 9 (after concomitant administration of venlafaxine and ticagrelor): area under the plasma concentration-time curve from zero to infinity (AUC), Cmax, tmax and apparent terminal half-life t½λz

  • Safety and tolerability of ticagrelor and venlafaxine when given concomitantly by assessments of amount of adverse events [ Time Frame: Multiple assessments from day -1 do day 12 and a single assessment at follow up visit. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
