Brief Summary:
This study was a pharmacokinetic and safety evaluation of the S-adenosylmethionine formulation MSI-195, and a commercial comparator. The study was broken into two stages. The first stage was an exploratory single ascending dose design of MSI-195 in 8 healthy normal male volunteers. The second stage was a single dose evaluation, targeting 26 male and female volunteers at set doses of MSI-195 and commercial comparator in a cross-over design followed by a food effect study on MSI-195. Plasma samples were collected and assayed for S-adenosylmethionine. Pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated using that data.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Major Depressive Disorder Drug: Ademetionine Phase 1

Detailed Description:

The study was focussed on the safety and pharmacokinetic evaluation of MSI-195; a novel patented formulation of S-adenosylmethionine. MSI-195 is a 400 mg dosage strength, tablet formulation comprising a core tablet, a seal coat and an enteric coat. The commercial comparator is SAM-e CompleteTM, manufactured by Pharmavite under the NatureMadeTM brand.

This study consisting of two stages. The first stage was an exploratory single ascending dose design of MSI-195 in 8 healthy normal male volunteers. The second stage was a more comprehensive single dose evaluation, targeting 26 male and female volunteers at set doses of MSI-195 and commercial comparator in a cross-over design followed by a food effect study on MSI-195.

Stage 1 design In each period of this stage of the study, ascending single doses of 400 mg, 800 mg and 1600 mg of MSI-195 was orally administered under fasted conditions, followed by 24 hours of blood draws at periodic intervals for the determination of plasma concentration of S-adenosylmethionine in a repeated-measure design. The drug administrations were separated by a wash-out of 7 calendar days.

Stage 2 design In the first 2 periods of this stage of the study, a single 800 mg dose of MSI-195 and a single 1600 mg dose of commercial comparator were orally administered under fasted conditions, in a 2-way crossover design. During the 3rd period, a single 800 mg dose of MSI-195 was administered under fed conditions to all subjects. The drug administrations were separated by a wash-out of 7 calendar days. For each dosing, subjects had periodic blood draws over a 24 hour period to determine the plasma concentration of S-adenosylmethionine as a function of time.

Male and female volunteers were included in the study. Subjects were in good health as determined by a medical history, complete physical examination (including vital signs), electrocardiogram (ECG), neurological examination and a panel of clinical laboratory tests.

Blood samples were collected and stored frozen until assayed. The samples were assayed for S-adenosylmethionine using a validated HPLC method with MS/MS detection.

For pharmacokinetic assessments, the main absorption and disposition parameters were calculated using a non-compartmental approach with a log-linear terminal phase assumption. The pharmacokinetic parameters of this trial were Cmax, Tmax, AUCT, AUC∞, AUCT/∞, Kel and T½el.

The safety parameters assessed included the occurrence of adverse events, the measurement of clinical laboratory parameters, vital signs, neurological function tests, physical examination and ECG

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence and severity of treatment-related adverse events (safety and tolerability) as measured by vital signs, ECG, laboratory tests, neurological function tests, and the occurance of adverse events [ Time Frame: for 24 hours after dosing ]
    Incidence and severity of treatment-related adverse events determined by changes from screening (baseline) of findings from physical examination, vital signs, ECG, laboratory tests, neurological function tests, and the occurance of adverse events.

  2. Pharmacokinetics was evaluated by measuring the systemic plasma concentration of ademetionine [ Time Frame: for 24 hours after dosing ]
    plasma concentrations of ademetionine were measured as a function of time using a validated bioanalytical assay
