A Study to Evaluate the Effect of Multiple Doses of Esomeprazole on the Pharmacokinetics of Isavuconazole

Overview

The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of multiple doses of esomeprazole on the pharmacokinetics of isavuconazole. In addition, safety and tolerability of isavuconazole alone and in combination with esomeprazole will be assessed

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Pharmacokinetics of plasma isavuconazole concentration: Area under the concentration-time curve during the time interval between consecutive dosing (AUCtau)
    • Time Frame: Day 5 (Arm 1) and Day 10 (Arm 2)
  • Pharmacokinetics of plasma isavuconazole concentration: Maximum concentration (Cmax)
    • Time Frame: Day 5 (Arm 1) and Day 10 (Arm 2)
  • Pharmacokinetics of plasma isavuconazole concentration: Time after dosing when Cmax occurs (tmax)
    • Time Frame: Day 5 (Arm 1) and Day 10 (Arm 2)
  • Safety assessed through adverse events
    • Time Frame: up to Day 17
  • Safety assessed through clinical laboratory evaluations
    • Time Frame: up to Day 11
    • Laboratory assessments will include hematology, serum chemistry and urinalysis parameters
  • Safety assessed by 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs)
    • Time Frame: up to Day 11
  • Safety assessed through vital signs
    • Time Frame: up to Day 11
    • Vital signs will be measured including oral temperature, pulse, and sitting blood pressure

  • The subject has a known or suspected allergy to any of the components of the trial products or the azole class of compounds, or a history of multiple and/or severe allergies to drugs or foods, or a history of severe anaphylactic reactions
  • The subject has used tobacco or nicotine containing products in the last 6 months
  • The subject has had treatment with any prescribed or non-prescribed drugs (including vitamins, natural and herbal remedies, e.g. St. John's wort) in the 2 weeks prior with the exception of hormonal methods of contraception, hormone replacement therapy, or occasional use of acetaminophen up to 2 g/day
  • The subject has participated in any interventional clinical study or has received any investigational drugs within past 30 days or 5 half-lives, whichever is longer
  • The subject has had any significant blood loss, donated one unit (450 mL) of blood or more, or received a transfusion of any blood or blood products within 60 days or donated plasma within 7 days prior to clinic admission
  • The subject anticipates an inability to abstain from alcohol or caffeine use for 48 hours prior and throughout the duration of the study; or from grapefruit, grapefruit juice, star fruit, or Seville oranges or any products containing these items from 72 hours prior and throughout the duration of the study
  • The subject has history of consuming more than 14 units of alcoholic beverages per week within 6 months prior to screening or has a history of alcoholism or drug/chemical/substance abuse within past 2 years prior to screening (Note: one unit = 12 ounces of beer, 4 ounces of wine or 1 ounce of spirits/hard liquor) or the subject tests positive for alcohol or drugs of abuse (amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cannabinoids, cocaine, and opiates)
