  Purpose

Very low dose (VLD) cyclobenzaprine at bedtime has shown promise as a treatment for fibromyalgia, but the chemistry of cyclobenzaprine requires new formulation technology for bedtime use. The present trial is designed to assess the safety and tolerability of TNX-102 2.4 mg (a new formulation of cyclobenzaprine designed to result in increased dosage precision and decreased potential for morning grogginess) and to compare the bio-availability of TNX-102 2.4 mg and cyclobenzaprine 5 mg tablets under fasting or fed conditions.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measured levels of cyclobenzaprine and norcyclobenzaprine in plasma and urine [ Time Frame: 23 time points per period for blood assessment ; 4 pooled analyses in urine, safety monitoring throughout the shoe study period.. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Blood samples will be taken per period: within 30 minutes pre-dose and 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.33, 3.67, 4,4.33, 4.67, 5, 5.5, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 36, 48, 72, and 96 hours post-dose. A single urine sample will be collected within 30 minutes pre-dose (one sample), and urine will be pooled from 0-24, 24-48, 48-72, and 72-96 hours post-dose.

  • Safety and tolerability of TNX-102 2.4 mg [ Time Frame: Continuously until the end (day 5) of each study period + 8-10 days after end of last period (total duration: about 1 month) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Every adverse events occurring during the study period will be reported.

Detailed Description:

Very low dose (VLD) cyclobenzaprine at bedtime has shown promise as a treatment for fibromyalgia, but the chemistry of cyclobenzaprine requires new formulation technology for bedtime use. Employing a proprietary mixture of approved lipids with cyclobenzaprine, TNX-102, is designed to provide predictable absorption of cyclobenzaprine and to result in increased dosage precision and decreased potential for morning grogginess.

As a first step in the development of TNX-102 in the treatment of fibromyalgia, the present single-center, randomized, open-label, single-dose, three-way-crossover trial is designed to assess the safety and tolerability of TNX-102 2.4 mg (a dose based on the results of a previous Phase 2a, proof-of-concept study - VPI-CY-0001.1) and to compare the rate and extent of absorption of TNX-102 2.4 mg and cyclobenzaprine 5 mg tablets under fasting or fed conditions.
