2016-05-31 15:08:22 | BioPortfolio


The main objective is to evaluate the effect of single dose Propionyl-L-Carnitine Hydrochloride on clinical pharmacokinetic characteristics and its effect of clinical pharmacokinetic characteristics and safety on healthy Chinese subjects to provide a basis for market authorization registration.


Before the official start of the study, to determine the appropriate dosing interval and a preliminary assessment of drug safety, first carried out the pre-trial, 4 subjects with different gender in half, after 7 days of run-in period, collect baseline background sampling point at day 4, no medication but water intake. At day 8 fasting oral propionyl L-carnitine hydrochloride tablets 0.5g, according to pre-designed schedule for blood samples, urine samples and clinical indicators, provide a reference for official trial.

Official trial is a single, open label, self-controlled, three-period, dose escalation, period fasting single oral administration trial. 12 chinese healthy adult subject met the inclusion criteria 12 people, each gender in half. Each subject first pass 7 days of run-in period, to eliminate the residual substances in food L-carnitine, stable baseline level of endogenous L-carnitine class substance within the subject; at day 4 was baseline sampling point, tno medication but water intake; at day 8 (1st period day 1) fasting oral propionyl L-carnitine hydrochloride tablets 1g; at day 12 (2nd period of day 1) fasting oral hydrochloride propionyl L-carnitine tablets 2g; the first 16 days (3rd period day 1) fasting oral propionyl L-carnitine hydrochloride tablets 4g.Throughout the trial period, control the subjects' diet, eating only allowed as far as possible food without substance L-carnitine class and drink boiled water,diet at sampling day 4, 8, 12, 16 need to be fixed consistently. Every 4 days of dosing interval washout period.

Subject need to follow blood, urine collection and diet control as required by protocol before the day of run-in period. During the trial should avoid vigorous exercise, meanwhile to avoid long-time bedding.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.

A respiratory stimulant that enhances respiration by acting as an agonist of peripheral chemoreceptors located on the carotid bodies. The drug increases arterial oxygen tension while decreasing arterial carbon dioxide tension in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It may also prove useful in the treatment of nocturnal oxygen desaturation without impairing the quality of sleep.

An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of O-acetylcarnitine from acetyl-CoA plus carnitine. EC

Lack of perfusion in the EXTREMITIES resulting from atherosclerosis. It is characterized by INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION, and an ANKLE BRACHIAL INDEX of 0.9 or less.

A high-affinity, ATP-binding, co-transporter for CARNITINE that is highly expressed in kidney, skeletal muscle, heart, and placental tissues. It transports one sodium ion with one carnitine molecule. It has a lower affinity for other organic cations and transports them independently of sodium. Mutations in the SLC22A5 gene are associated with systemic carnitine deficiency.
