Bioavailability of Lesinurad and Intravenous [14C]Lesinurad


This study will assess the absolute bioavailability of a single oral dose of lesinurad and evaluate the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of lesinurad and [14C]lesinurad in healthy adult male subjects.

Detailed Description

In this study a single dose of lesinurad will be administered after an overnight fast followed by a single 15-minute infusion of a radiolabeled intravenous micro tracer dose of [14C]lesinurad to assess the in vivo performance of lesinurad.


  • Drug: Lesinurad 400 mg
  • Drug: [14C]lesinurad (100 μg per 10 mL)

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: Lesinurad and [14C]lesinurad
    • Single oral dose of lesinurad and single infusion of [14C]lesinurad

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Characteristics of bioavailability in terms of lesinurad Pharmacokinetics (PK) profile from plasma.
    • Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 5
    • PK profile 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), mean residence time (MRT), mean absorption time (MAT), and absolute bioavailability (F).
  • PK profile of [14C]lesinurad from plasma
    • Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 5
    • PK profile in terms of Cmax, AUC, t½, MRT, total body clearance (CL), and volume of distribution at steady state (Vss).

Secondary Measures

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

Participating in This Clinical Trial

Inclusion Criteria

  • Subject has a body weight ≥ 50 kg (110 lbs) and body mass index ≥ 18 and ≤ 30 kg/m2.
  • Subject is free of any clinically significant disease or medical condition, per the Investigator's judgment

Exclusion Criteria

  • Subject has a history or suspicion of kidney stones.
  • Subject has undergone major surgery within 3 months prior to Screening.
  • Subject donated blood or experienced significant blood loss (>450 mL) within 12 weeks prior to Screening or gave a plasma donation within 4 weeks prior to Screening.
  • Subject has inadequate venous access or unsuitable veins for repeated venipuncture.
  • Subject does not have a normal or clinically acceptable physical examination, per the Investigator's judgment.
  • Subject has clinically relevant abnormalities in blood pressure, heart rate, or body temperature, per the Investigator's judgment.
  • Subject has Screening clinical safety laboratory parameters (serum chemistry, hematology, or urinalysis) that are outside the normal limits and are considered clinically significant by the Investigator.
  • Subject has clinically relevant abnormalities in 12-lead electrocardiogram, per the Investigator's judgment.
  • Subject has a Screening serum urate level > 7 mg/dL.
  • Subject had radiation exposure that exceeds 5 mSv in the last 12 months or 10 mSv in the last 5 years. This includes radiation exposure from the present study or other clinical studies, including diagnostic X-rays and other medical exposures but excluding exposure to background radiation. No occupationally exposed worker, as defined in the Ionising Radiation Regulations 1999, shall participate in the study.
