A Study of Axiron® in Healthy Participants

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02004132
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : December 6, 2013
Results First Posted : August 19, 2014
Last Update Posted : August 19, 2014

Eli Lilly and Company

Brief Summary:
The study involves application of Axiron to each underarm. The study will evaluate the transfer of testosterone from underarms to the clothing items that the participant is wearing and other fabric items washed with participant's' clothes. The study is approximately 6 days, not including screening. Screening is required within 28 days prior to the start of the study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 12 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Phase 1, Single-Dose Study to Evaluate Testosterone on Clothing After Axiron® Use in Healthy Male Subjects
Study Start Date : December 2013
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : December 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Axiron
Axiron administered topically via metered dose pump to each underarm on Day 1
Drug: Axiron
Solution administered topically using pump and applicator
Other Names:
  • LY900011
  • Testosterone

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Amount of Testosterone on T-shirts [ Time Frame: 12 hours after application of study drug ]
    This is a summary of the amounts of testosterone measured on a 10 centimeters (cm) × 10 cm of material excised from the underarm area of participant's unwashed t-shirt halves.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Amount of Testosterone Following Laundering [ Time Frame: 12 hours after application of study drug ]
    This is a summary of the amounts of testosterone measured on a 10 cm × 10 cm of material excised from the underarm area of washed t-shirt halves following laundering in a standard washing machine.

  2. Amount of Testosterone on Unworn Textiles Laundered With the Testosterone Exposed T-shirts [ Time Frame: 12 hours after application of study drug ]

    This is a summary of the amounts of testosterone measured on unworn textile items washed with t-shirt halves exposed to testosterone in a standard washing machine. Total amounts of testosterone on each laundered item other than the t-shirt halves was calculated based on the weight of the fabric sample analyzed and the total weight of the item, assuming a uniform distribution of testosterone across each item as:

    (weight of laundered item / weight of laundered sample) x amount of testosterone on laundered sample.
