Antacid Interaction Study


This study will assess the potential effects of calcium carbonate and aluminum/magnesium hydroxide-containing antacids on the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of lesinurad in healthy, adult male subjects.

Full Title of Study: “A Phase 1, Randomized, Open-Label, Drug-Drug Interaction Study to Evaluate the Potential Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Interaction Between Lesinurad and Calcium Carbonate and Aluminum/Magnesium Hydroxide-Containing Antacids in Healthy Adult Male Subjects”

Study Type

  • Study Type: Interventional
  • Study Design
    • Allocation: Randomized
    • Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
    • Primary Purpose: Basic Science
    • Masking: None (Open Label)
  • Study Primary Completion Date: December 2013

Detailed Description

In this study, lesinurad and antacid will be administered in the fed state, antacid doses will be attenuated to reflect the more commonly used doses, baseline PD assessments will be performed both in presence and absence of antacid treatment, and the sequence of treatments (lesinurad +/- antacid) will be randomized.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • PK profile of lesinurad from plasma and urine
    • Time Frame: Day 2 and Day 7
    • Plasma in terms of maximum observed concentration (Cmax), time of occurrence of maximum observed concentration (Tmax), area under the concentration-time curve (AUC), apparent terminal half-life (t½), renal clearance (CLR), and adverse event (Ae).
  • PD profile of Lesinurad from serum and urine
    • Time Frame: Day 2 and Day 7
    • Serum PD in terms of serum urate concentration, urine uric acid excretion amount, renal clearance of uric acid, and fractional excretion of uric acid.

Secondary Measures

  • Incidence of Adverse Events and Changes in Laboratory, Electrocardiogram, and Vital Signs Parameters
    • Time Frame: 5 weeks
