A Study to Evaluate the Effect of Mipomersen on Cardiac Repolarization Conducted in Healthy Subjects

2014-08-27 03:15:04 | BioPortfolio


To assess the electrocardiogram (ECG) effects of mipomersen administered as a 200-mg subcutaneous (SC) therapeutic and a 200-mg intravenous (IV; [2-hour infusion]) supra-therapeutic dose relative to placebo in healthy adult male and female subjects; and to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of mipomersen when administered as a single therapeutic (200 mg) SC and a single, supra-therapeutic (200 mg) IV dose.


This will be a randomized, double-blind, single-site, crossover study in healthy male and female subjects to determine if mipomersen administered as a single therapeutic (200 mg) SC and a single supra-therapeutic (200 mg) IV dose delays cardiac repolarization as determined by the measurement of QT/corrected QT (QTc) interval. A total of 60 healthy male and female subjects will be enrolled in this 4-way crossover study, randomly assigned to 1 of 8 treatment sequences, and cross over into 4 treatment periods where each subject will receive both a single SC injection and a single IV infusion during each period.

The subfornical organ in sodium appetite: recent insights.

To maintain sodium homeostasis, animals will readily seek and ingest salt when salt-depleted, even at concentrations that they typically find aversive when sodium replete. This innate behaviour is kno...

Effects of the Inhibition of Late Sodium Current by GS967 on Stretch-Induced Changes in Cardiac Electrophysiology.

Mechanical stretch increases sodium and calcium entry into myocytes and activates the late sodium current. GS967, a triazolopyridine derivative, is a sodium channel blocker with preferential effects o...

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.

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.

Cell membrane glycoproteins selective for sodium ions. Fast sodium current is associated with the action potential in neural membranes.
