The purpose of this study is to compare in healthy volunteers levels of TMC435 in the blood circulation after intake of 2 new capsule formulations with the level of TMC435 in the blood circulation after intake of the capsule formulation used in the Phase IIb studies.
This is a randomized (study drug assigned by chance), open-label (all people involved know the treatment), single dose, crossover (volunteers will receive different treatments sequentially during the trial) study in healthy volunteers. The trial will evaluate the levels of TMC435 in the blood circulation after a single dose of 150 mg TMC435 administered as 3 different capsule formulations following breakfast. There will be a 7-day washout period between treatments and a 4-5 week follow-up at the end. Each volunteer will receive all three treatments. The main focus of the trial is the pharmacokinetic characteristics (how drugs are absorbed in the body, how they are distributed within the body and how they are removed from the body over time) of the different formulations. This evaluation requires multiple blood samples from Day 1 through 72 hours after dosing. Safety assessments (lab work, blood pressure, pulse and electrocardiogram) will follow a different schedule and are measured on Day -1 (day prior to taking first dose of drug), Day 1 (without lab work) and Day 4 of each treatment period, and 1 and 4-5 weeks after the last treatment. Each volunteer will receive 3 treatments, 7 days apart from each other. Each treatment consists of one single oral dose of 150 mg TMC435.

Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) is a defective agent that only replicates in the presence of the hepatitis B virus. Accordingly, HDV acquisition may occur as superinfection of HBsAg+ carriers or following...

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection is an emerging problem in developed countries. At least 2 zoonotic genotypes of the virus (HEV-3 and HEV-4) infect human beings. There are some data suggesting that f...
Accumulated evidence has suggested associations between glucose abnormalities and insulin resistance with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections. However, few studies have repo...
A family of hepatotropic DNA viruses which contains double-stranded DNA genomes and causes hepatitis in humans and animals. There are two genera: AVIHEPADNAVIRUS and ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS. Hepadnaviruses include HEPATITIS B VIRUS, duck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, DUCK), heron hepatitis B virus, ground squirrel hepatitis virus, and woodchuck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, WOODCHUCK).
A species in the genus HEPATOVIRUS containing one serotype and two strains: HUMAN HEPATITIS A VIRUS and Simian hepatitis A virus causing hepatitis in humans (HEPATITIS A) and primates, respectively.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS, a defective RNA virus that can only infect HEPATITIS B patients. For its viral coating, hepatitis delta virus requires the HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGENS produced by these patients. Hepatitis D can occur either concomitantly with (coinfection) or subsequent to (superinfection) hepatitis B infection. Similar to hepatitis B, it is primarily transmitted by parenteral exposure, such as transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products, but can also be transmitted via sexual or intimate personal contact.
A strain of HEPATITIS A VIRUS which causes hepatitis in humans. The virus replicates in hepatocytes and is presumed to reach the intestine via the bile duct. Transmission occurs by the fecal-oral route.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS C VIRUS, a single-stranded RNA virus. Its incubation period is 30-90 days. Hepatitis C is transmitted primarily by contaminated blood parenterally, and is often associated with transfusion and intravenous drug abuse. However, in a significant number of cases, the source of hepatitis C infection is unknown.
