Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part 1: AUC0-∞ (area under the concentration-time curve of the analyte (rosuvastatin) in plasma over the time interval from 0 extrapolated to infinity) [ Time Frame: Up to 96 hours ]
  2. Part 1: Cmax (maximum measured concentration of the analyte (rosuvastatin) in plasma) [ Time Frame: Up to 96 hours ]
  3. Part 2: AUC0-∞ (area under the concentration-time curve of the analyte (dabigatran) in plasma over the time interval from 0 extrapolated to infinity) [ Time Frame: Up to 72 hours ]
  4. Part 2: Cmax (maximum measured concentration of the analyte (dabigatran) in plasma) [ Time Frame: Up to 72 hours ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part 1: AUC0-tz (area under the concentration-time curve of the analyte (rosuvastatin) in plasma over the time interval from 0 to the last quantifiable data point) [ Time Frame: Up to 96 hours ]
  2. Part 2: AUC0-tz (area under the concentration-time curve of the analyte (dabigatran) in plasma over the time interval from 0 to the last quantifiable data point) [ Time Frame: Up to 72 hours ]

Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion criteria:

  • Healthy male subjects according to the assessment of the investigator, as based on a complete medical history including a physical examination, vital signs (Blood pressure (BP), Pulse rate (PR)), 12-lead Electrocardiogram (ECG), and clinical laboratory tests
  • Age of 18 to 55 years (inclusive)
  • Body mass index (BMI) of 18.5 to 29.9 kg/m^2 (inclusive)
  • Signed and dated written informed consent prior to admission to the study, in accordance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and local legislation

Exclusion criteria:

  • Any finding in the medical examination (including Blood pressure (BP), Pulse rate (PR) or Electrocardiogram (ECG)) deviating from normal and assessed as clinically relevant by the investigator
  • Repeated measurement of systolic blood pressure outside the range of 90 to 140 mmHg, diastolic blood pressure outside the range of 50 to 90 mmHg, or pulse rate outside the range of 45 to 90 bpm
  • Any laboratory value outside the reference range that the investigator considers to be of clinical relevance (including positive or missing faecal occult blood test in Part 2, retest allowed)
  • Any evidence of a concomitant disease assessed as clinically relevant by the investigator
  • Gastrointestinal, hepatic, renal, respiratory, cardiovascular, metabolic, immunological or hormonal disorders
  • Cholecystectomy or other surgery of the gastrointestinal tract that could interfere with the pharmacokinetics of the trial medication (except appendectomy or simple hernia repair)

  • History of relevant orthostatic hypotension, fainting spells, or blackouts
  • Chronic or relevant acute infections
  • History of relevant allergy or hypersensitivity (including allergy to the trial medication or its excipients)
  • Use of drugs within 30 days of planned administration of trial medication that might reasonably influence the results of the trial (including drugs that cause QT/QTc interval prolongation)
  • Intake of an investigational drug in another clinical trial within 60 days of planned administration of investigational drug in the current trial, or concurrent participation in another clinical trial in which investigational drug is administered
  • Smoker (more than 10 cigarettes or 3 cigars or 3 pipes per day)
  • Inability to refrain from smoking on specified trial days
  • Alcohol abuse (consumption of more than 24 g per day)
  • Drug abuse or positive drug screening

  • A history of additional risk factors for Torsade de Pointes (such as heart failure, hypokalaemia, or family history of Long QT Syndrome)
