Brief Summary:
This Pharmacokinetic (PK) study is going to provide supplemental PK data for supporting bipolar Phase III study for New Drug Application (NDA) filing according to regulatory requirement. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the PK of lamotrigine following repeat dosing of lamotrigine dispersible tablet in healthy Chinese subjects. This study consisted of Screening Phase (Days-14 to 0), Open-label Phase (Days 1 to 51) and follow-up Phase (10-17 days after last dosing). After signing the informed consent and confirm the eligibility, subjects will start dosing with lamotrigine 25 mg dispersible tablet once daily at Day 1 and remain at this dose level for two weeks (Days 1-14), then will be titrated to 50 mg once daily at Day 15 and last for weeks 3-4 (Days 15-28), and then titrated to 100 mg once daily at Day 29 during weeks 5-6 (Days 29-42). The total duration of the study will be approximately 10 weeks including screening and follow-up phase.

Drug Information available for: Lamotrigine

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Lamotrigine dispersible tablets 25mg, 50mg, 100mg
Each subjects will start dosing with lamotrigine 25mg dispersible tablet once daily at Day 1 and remain at this dose level for 2 weeks (Days1-14), then will be titrated to 50 mg once daily at Day 15 and last for weeks 3-4 (Days 15-28), and then titrated to 100 mg once daily at Day 29 during weeks 5-6 (Days 29-42).
Drug: Lamotrigine
Lamotrigine dispersible tablets supplied in 3 different strengths 25 mg, 50 mg and 100 mg. These dispersible tablets appear as white or off-white tablets.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PK profile will be assessed by AUC (0-tau[24 hours]); Cmax; and accumulation ratios (Rcmax and Ro) following single and repeat dosing of lamotrigine dispersible tablet [ Time Frame: Days 1, 14, 15, 28, 29, 42 and 44 to 51 ]
    Blood samples for PK analysis will be collected on Days 1, 14, 28, and 42 before dosing (pre-dose) and at 0.5,1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24 hours after administration. Other blood samples will be taken at 1 and 3 hours post dose on Day 15, and at 2 and 4 h post dose on Day 29. Additional blood samples will be taken at 48, 72, 96, 120, 168 and 216 hours after the administration of last dose on Day 42. Area under the concentration-time curve for a dose interval (AUC [0-tau{24 hours}]); observed maximum concentration (Cmax); and accumulation ratios (Rcmax and Ro) will be determined from the serum concentration-time data. Accumulation ratio will be calculated as follows: Ro = AUC(0-24) of Day14/AUC(0-24) of Day 1; and Rcmax = Cmax of Day14 / Cmax of Day 1


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PK profile will be assessed by Tmax; T1/2; Cssmax; Css,min; Css,avg; CL/F; and Vz/F and DF following single and repeat dosing of lamotrigine dispersible tablet. [ Time Frame: Days 1, 14, 15, 28, 29, 42 and 44 to 51 ]
    Blood samples for PK analysis will be collected on Days 1, 14, 28, and 42 before dosing (pre-dose) and at 0.5,1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24 hours after administration. Other blood samples will be taken at 1 and 3 hours post dose on Day 15, and at 2 and 4 h post dose on Day 29. Additional blood samples will be taken at 48, 72, 96, 120, 168 and 216 hours after the administration of last dose on Day 42. Time to reach maximum concentration (Tmax), Terminal half-life (T1/2), Maximum concentration at steady state (Css,max), minimum concentration at steady state (Css,min), average steady state concentration (Css,avg), Apparent clearance (CL/F), Appearent volume of distribution (Vz/F), and Degree of fluctuation (DF) will be determined from the serum concentration-time data, as data permit.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Capable of returning to study site for follow-up according to requirement of protocol and willing to comply with the policy, procedure and restriction of the study. Capable of actively communicating with the investigator and completing the study-related documents; Capable of understanding the contents of the informed consent and signing a written informed consent prior to any study related procedures.
