Effects of Dual Cyclooxygenase-2 and Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibition
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors have become a common analgesic treatment option for patients with arthritis. However, long-term treatment has been associated with increased cardiovascular risk. With the past withdrawals and rejections of approval for COX-2 inhibitors the treatment options are now very limited.
This translates for example to about 10 million osteoarthritis patients in the US who cannot receive COX-2 inhibitors because of concomitant hypertension. And this exemplifies the unmet medical need to develop and offer safe treatment options for this particular patient population.
This trial investigates pharmacodynamic aspects of CG100649 which is being developed as a novel COX-2 inhibitor. Preclinical data show a dual mechanism of action, which consists of the inhibition of the two enzymes COX-2 and carbonic anhydrase-I/-II (CA-I/II) and through which the cardiovascular risk of COX-2 inhibition might be attenuated.
Part 1 and 2 (staged analysis): Single dose of study drugs [celecoxib, placebo] followed by 3 days of blood draws as Period I; then after a wash-out phase, single dose of study drugs [CG100649 2mg and 8mg, celecoxib 200mg, placebo], followed by blood draws on 6 days and bi-weekly urine collections for 8 weeks.
Part 3: Five-way cross-over of single doses of study drugs with a CG100649 single dose level as determined by part 1 and 2, celecoxib 200mg, naproxen 500mg, acetazolamide 250mg and placebo.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An envelope of loose gel surrounding a bacterial cell which is associated with the virulence of pathogenic bacteria. Some capsules have a well-defined border, whereas others form a slime layer that trails off into the medium. Most capsules consist of relatively simple polysaccharides but there are some bacteria whose capsules are made of polypeptides.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
An anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic and antipyretic properties. Both the acid and its sodium salt are used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other rheumatic or musculoskeletal disorders, dysmenorrhea, and acute gout.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
Hard or soft soluble containers used for the oral administration of medicine.
This is a Phase I, open-labeled, randomization and 2x2 Cross trial to compare the pharmacokinetic effects between ketoconazole and CG100649 for healthy male volunteers.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 3 loading and maintenance dose levels of CG100649 administered for 21 days in the treatment of osteoarthritis...
