Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cmax of favipiravir [ Time Frame: predose and 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 2, 4, 6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48 hours post-dose on Day 1 and Day 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The PK parameters for favipiravir and its metabolite in hepatically impaired adult subjects relative to healthy adult subjects matched for age, weight, gender, and race status on Day 1 and on Day 5.

  • AUC of favipiravir [ Time Frame: predose and 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 2, 4, 6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48 hours post-dose on Day 1 and Day 5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The PK parameters for favipiravir and its metabolite in hepatically impaired adult subjects relative to healthy adult subjects matched for age, weight, gender, and race status on Day 1 and on Day 5.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • vital signs [ Time Frame: 13 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • electrocardiograms [ECGs] [ Time Frame: 13 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • clinical laboratory assessment [ Time Frame: 13 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • adverse events [AEs] [ Time Frame: 13 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • physical examination [ Time Frame: 13 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
