A Study to Investigate the Effect of CYP3A4 Inhibition on the Single Dose Pharmacokinetics of ASTX660 and the Effect of a Single Dose of ASTX660 on the Pharmacokinetics of the CYP3A4 Substrate Midazolam

Overview

In Part 1, the primary objective is to investigate the effect of multiple doses of itraconazole, an inhibitor of CYP3A4, on the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of a single dose of ASTX660.

In Part 2, the primary objective is to investigate the effect of a single dose of ASTX660 on the pharmacokinetics of the CYP3A4 substrate midazolam and its metabolite, 1-hydroxy midazolam.

Safety and tolerability of a single dose of ASTX660 in the absence and presence of multiple doses of the CYP3A4 inhibitor itraconazole and in the presence of a single dose of the CYP3A4 substrate midazolam will also be evaluated.
