  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether there is a drug-drug interaction between multiple doses of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) and single doses of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel. The safety and tolerability of canagliflozin will also be assessed in healthy volunteers.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Plasma concentrations of ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel [ Time Frame: Up to Day 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Comparison of plasma concentrations of ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel, before and after administration of multiple doses of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754). This will be used to determine whether there is a pharmacokinetic interaction between multiple doses of canagliflozin and single doses of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Plasma concentrations of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) [ Time Frame: Days 8 and 9 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Comparison of plasma concentrations of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) before and after administration of a single dose of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel. This will be used to determine whether there is a pharmacokinetic interaction between multiple doses of canagliflozin and single doses of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel.

Primary Completion Date: March 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Canagliflozin + oral contraceptive
Each volunteer will receive a single dose of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel on Day 1, followed by canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) once daily on Days 4 through 8. On Day 9 volunteers will receive a single dose of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel in combination with a single dose of canagliflozin.
Drug: Oral contraceptive
One tablet (0.150 mg of levonorgestrel and 0.030 mg of ethinyl estradiol) taken orally (by mouth) on Day 1 and Day 9.
Other Name: Levora
Drug: Canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754)
One 200 mg tablet taken orally (by mouth) on Days 4 through 9.
Other Name: JNJ-28431754

Detailed Description:

This study will be an open-label (all volunteers and study staff know the identity of the assigned treatment), single-center, fixed-sequence study (all volunteers receive the same medication on the same days), to determine how canagliflozin (a drug currently being investigated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus) affects the pharmacokinetics (ie, how the body affects the drug) of an oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel. The study will consist of 3 phases; a screening phase, an open-label treatment phase, and an end-of-study (or follow-up) phase. Each volunteer will participate in the study for approximately 33 days.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 45 Years

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:
