Pharmacokinetic Study of Artemether-lumefantrine and Amodiaquine in Healthy Subjects

2019-09-12 02:34:39 | BioPortfolio


This is an open-label pharmacokinetic study in 16 healthy Thai subjects. To assess the safety and tolerability and pharmacological interactions of the combination of artemether-lumefantrine and amodiaquine.


This study will enroll 16 healthy subjects both male and female, aged 18-60 years, at the Clinical Therapeutic Unit, Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University. Subjects will be healthy HIV-1, hepatitis B and C uninfected individuals who comprehend the purpose of the study and have provided written consent. All subjects will undergo screening assessments (visit 1). Screening assessments (visit 1) may be carried out over more than one day, provided that all required assessments are completed within the 14 days prior to visit 2. If the interval between screening (visit 1) and day -1 visit 2 is three days or less, the clinical laboratory screening test result and serum pregnancy test result can be used for enrolment evaluation on day -1 visit 2. In such cases, these tests would not need to be repeated at day-1 visit 2.

Visit 1 (Screening visit): All laboratory assessments (chemistry, hematology, FBS and urinalysis) must be drawn in the fasting state (8 hours fast) including serum pregnancy testing (if appropriate)

Visit 2-4: 16 healthy subjects who fulfill the eligibility criteria will be recruited and randomized to the study. All laboratory assessments (chemistry, hematology, FBS and urinalysis) must be drawn in the fasting state (8 hours fast). Results of these tests are to be available and reviewed prior to each subject receiving the study drug on day 0.
