  Purpose

This was a non-randomized, open label study in healthy male and female volunteers. A single intranasal dose of 30 mg ketorolac tromethamine was administered to all subjects on Days 1 and 6; in addition, subjects received a daily intranasal dose of 200 µg fluticasone propionate on Days 2-6. Subjects remained resident in the Clinical Unit from the evening of Day 1 until the morning of Day 2 and from the evening of Day 5 until the morning of Day 7, and made ambulatory visits to the Clinical Unit on the morning of Days 3-5. A post study medical was performed within 7 days of study completion.

The objective of this study was to assess the effects of chronic administration of fluticasone propionate on the pharmacokinetics of intranasal ketorolac in healthy male and female subjects.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cmax (the Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration of Ketorolac Tromethamine) [ Time Frame: PK parameters were determined using the following blood sampling times: pre-dose (within 10 minutes of ketorolac tromethamine administration), 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 15 and 24 h post administration of study drug on Days 1 and 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Tmax (the Time to Maximum Concentration of Ketorolac Tromethamine) [ Time Frame: PK parameters were determined using the following blood sampling times: pre-dose (within 10 minutes of ketorolac tromethamine administration), 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 15 and 24 h post administration of study drug on Days 1 and 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • AUC 0-t (the Area Under the Plasma Concentration-time Curve (AUC) From Time Zero to the Last Quantifiable Time Point Post-dose of Ketorolac Tromethamine). [ Time Frame: PK parameters were determined using the following blood sampling times: pre-dose (within 10 minutes of ketorolac tromethamine administration), 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 15 and 24 h post administration of study drug on Days 1 and 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • AUC Inf (the AUC From Time Zero to Infinity, Where Possible) [ Time Frame: PK parameters were determined using the following blood sampling times: pre-dose (within 10 minutes of ketorolac tromethamine administration), 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 15 and 24 h post administration of study drug on Days 1 and 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • t1/2z (the Terminal Half-life of Ketorolac Tromethamine, Where Possible) [ Time Frame: PK parameters were determined using the following blood sampling times: pre-dose (within 10 minutes of ketorolac tromethamine administration), 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 15 and 24 h post administration of study drug on Days 1 and 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • MRT (the Mean Residence Time of Ketorolac Tromethamine, Where Possible) [ Time Frame: PK parameters were determined using the following blood sampling times: pre-dose (within 10 minutes of ketorolac tromethamine administration), 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 15 and 24 h post administration of study drug on Days 1 and 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
