The purpose of this study is to determine how a single dose of cyclosporin affects the pharmacokinetics (ie, how the body affects the drug) of multiple doses of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754). The safety and tolerability of canagliflozin will also be assessed in healthy volunteers.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: Canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754)
Drug: Cyclosporine
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Plasma concentrations of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) [ Time Frame: Day 7 and Day 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Comparison of the maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) and the area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) (measures of the body's exposure to canagliflozin) before and after administration of a single dose of cyclosporine. This will be used to determine whether there is a pharmacokinetic interaction between cyclosporine and canagliflozin.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The number of volunteers with adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Up to 47 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 18
Study Start Date: February 2011
Study Completion Date: April 2011
Primary Completion Date: April 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Canagliflozin + cyclosporine
Each volunteer will receive canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) once daily on Days 1 through 8 with a single dose of cyclosporine on Day 7.
Drug: Canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754)
One 300 mg capsule-shaped tablet taken orally (by mouth) on Days 1 through 8.
Other Name: JNJ-28431754
Drug: Cyclosporine
Four 100 mg capsules (400 mg total dose) taken orally 30 minutes before the last dose of canagliflozin (JNJ-28431754) on Day 8.

Detailed Description:

This study will be an open label (all volunteers and study staff know the identity of assigned treatments), single-center, multiple-dose study to determine how cyclosporin (a drug which reduces the activity of a patient's immune system) affects the pharmacokinetics of canagliflozin (a drug currently being investigated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus). 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 47 days.
