Colchicine is a supressor of hepatic CYP1A2 and theophylline is a sensitive CYP1A2 probe substrate. When the two are co-administered the potential exists for a clinically significant drug interaction. This study aims to determine the effect of steady-state colchicine on the pharmacokinetics of theophylline administered as a single dose. A secondary goal is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of this regimen in healthy volunteers. All study subjects will be monitored for adverse events throughout the entire study period.
Colchicine is a supressor of hepatic CYP1A2 and theophylline is a sensitive CYP1A2 probe substrate. When the two are co-administered the potential exists for a clinically significant drug interaction . This study aims to determine the effect of steady-state colchicine on the pharmacokinetics of theophylline administered as a single dose. After a fast of at least 10 hours, thirty healthy, non-smoking, non-obese, non-pregnant adult volunteers between the ages of 18 and 45 will be given one dose of 300mg (80mg/15ml concentrate) theophylline (theophylline elixir) on Day 1. Fasting will continue for 4 hours after the dose. Blood samples will be drawn from all participants before dosing and for 24 hours post-dose on a confined basis at times sufficient to adequately determine the pharmacokinetics of theophylline. Blood sampling will then continue on a non-confined basis on days 2-3. A four day washout period will be completed after the theophylline dose on Day 1 and prior to administration of the first colchicine dose on Day 5. Participants will return to the clinic on days 5-18 for non-confined dosing of colchicine (0.6mg every 12 hours). Administered dosing on these days will not necessarily be in a fasted state.
On Day 19 after a fast of at least 10 hours, all study participants will receive 300mg theophylline (80mg/15ml) and 0.6 mg colchicine (1 x 0.6mg tablet) together. Fasting will continue for 4 hours following these co-administered doses. All subjects will be confined to the clinic for dosing and the following 24-hour period. Blood samples will be drawn at times sufficient to adequately determine the pharmacokinetics of theophylline in the presence of colchicine at steady state. Blood sampling will continue on a non-confined basis on Days 20-21. The final dose of colchicine (1x0.6mg) will be administered to subjects the evening of Day 19.
A further goal of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of this regimen in healthy volunteers. Subjects will be monitored throughout participation in the study for adverse reactions to the study drug and/or procedures. Seated blood pressure and pulse will be measured prior to dosing and at approximately 1, 2, and 3 hours following drug administration on Days 1, 5 (after the morning dose) and 19. All adverse events whether elicited by query, spontaneously reported, or observed by clinic staff will be evaluated by the Investigator and reported in the subject's case report form.

Three, alpha, beta, and gamma isomers of ultraviolet degradation products of colchicine that lack many of the physiological actions of the parent; used as experimental control for colchicine actions.
A drug combination that contains THEOPHYLLINE and ethylenediamine. It is more soluble in water than theophylline but has similar pharmacologic actions. It's most common use is in bronchial asthma, but it has been investigated for several other applications.
A methyl xanthine derivative from tea with diuretic, smooth muscle relaxant, bronchial dilation, cardiac and central nervous system stimulant activities. Theophylline inhibits the 3',5'-CYCLIC NUCLEOTIDE PHOSPHODIESTERASE that degrades CYCLIC AMP thus potentiates the actions of agents that act through ADENYLATE CYCLASE and cyclic AMP.
Agents that aid or increase the action of the principle drug (DRUG SYNERGISM) or that affect the absorption, mechanism of action, metabolism, or excretion of the primary drug (PHARMACOKINETICS) in such a way as to enhance its effects.
