16 patients




18 to 50 years old


Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Inclusion criteria

  • Healthy male according to the investigator's assessment, based on a complete medical history including a physical examination, vital signs (BP, PR), 12-lead ECG, and clinical laboratory tests
  • Age of 18 to 50 years (incl.)
  • BMI of 18.5 to 29.9 kg/m2 (incl.)
  • Signed and dated written informed consent prior to admission to the study in accordance with Good Clinical Practice and local legislation

Exclusion criteria

  • Any finding in the medical examination (including BP, PR or ECG) is deviating from normal and judged as clinically relevant by the investigator
  • Repeated measurement of systolic blood pressure outside the range of 100 to 140 mmHg, diastolic blood pressure outside the range of 60 to 90 mmHg, or pulse rate outside the range of 50 to 90 bpm
  • Any laboratory value outside the reference range that the investigator considers to be of clinical relevance
  • Any evidence of a concomitant disease judged as clinically relevant by the investigator
  • Gastrointestinal, hepatic, renal, respiratory, cardiovascular, metabolic, immunological or hormonal disorders
  • Cholecystectomy and/or surgery of the gastrointestinal tract that could interfere with the pharmacokinetics of the trial medication (except appendectomy and simple hernia repair)
  • Diseases of the central nervous system (including but not limited to any kind of seizures or stroke), and other relevant neurological or psychiatric disorders
  • History of relevant orthostatic hypotension, fainting spells, or blackouts
  • Chronic or relevant acute infections
  • History of relevant allergy or hypersensitivity (including allergy to the trial medication or its excipients)
  • Intake of drugs with a long half-life (more than 24 h) within 30 days or less than 10 half-lives of the respective drug prior to administration of trial medication
  • Within 10 days prior to administration of trial medication, use of drugs that might reasonably influence the results of the trial or that might prolong the QT/corrected QT interval
  • Participation in another trial where an investigational drug has been administered within 60 days prior to planned administration of trial medication
  • Smoker (more than 10 cigarettes or 3 cigars or 3 pipes per day)
  • Inability to refrain from smoking on specified trial days
  • Alcohol abuse (consumption of more 24 g per day for males)
  • Drug abuse or positive drug screening
  • Blood donation of more than 100 mL within 30 days prior to administration of trial medication or intended donation during the trial
  • Intention to perform excessive physical activities within one week prior to administration of trial medication or during the trial
  • Inability to comply with dietary regimen of trial site
  • A marked baseline prolongation of QT/corrected QT interval (such as corrected QT intervals that are repeatedly greater than 450 ms in males) or any other relevant ECG finding at screening
  • A history of additional risk factors for Torsades de Pointes (such as heart failure, hypokalemia, or family history of Long QT Syndrome)
  • Subject is assessed as unsuitable for inclusion by the investigator, for instance, because considered not able to understand and comply with study requirements, or has a condition that would not allow safe participation in the study
