A Study to Determine the Effects of Multiple Doses of Mipomersen (200 mg SC) on the Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacokinetics of Single-dose Warfarin

2014-08-27 03:13:20 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to assess how blood clotting and thinning time is effected when a single dose of warfarin is given alone and when a single dose of warfarin is given with mipomersen; to assess the blood levels of a single dose of warfarin, a single dose of mipomersen, and a single dose of warfarin when given with mipomersen; and to assess the safety of mipomersen when given with or without warfarin.


This will be a Phase 1, open-label, single-sequence, 2-period, crossover study to determine the effect of multiple doses of mipomersen (200 mg SC given every other day for a total of 4 doses) on the PD and PK of warfarin and to evaluate the PK of mipomersen when administered alone and in combination with warfarin. Subjects will be admitted to the clinic on Day -1 until discharge from the clinic on Day 18 and return for outpatient visits on Days 19, 20, and 78. All subjects will receive a single 25-mg oral dose of warfarin given alone on Day 1 (designated the reference treatment). All subjects will then receive 200-mg SC doses of mipomersen given every other day on Days 8, 10, 12, and 14 (total of 800 mg mipomersen) with a single 25-mg oral dose of warfarin also given on Day 14 (combination designated the test treatment).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.

An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.

A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of CARDIOMYOCYTES. Defects in the SCN5A gene, which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel, are associated with a variety of CARDIAC DISEASES that result from loss of sodium channel function.

Stable sodium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element sodium, but differ in atomic weight. Na-23 is a stable sodium isotope.

A family of membrane proteins that selectively conduct SODIUM ions due to changes in the TRANSMEMBRANE POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE. They typically have a multimeric structure with a core alpha subunit that defines the sodium channel subtype and several beta subunits that modulate sodium channel activity.
