About

This study investigated the pharmacokinetics (how a drug is taken up and excreted from the body), safety, and tolerability of 2 new tapentadol (CG5503) tablet formulations compared to a previously characterized tapentadol prolonged-release (PR) tablet formulation.

Full description

The study was performed to evaluate the pharmacokinetic characteristics (relative bioavailability) of 2 new tapentadol (CG5503) tablet formulations (Test Product 1 and Test Product 2) containing 116 mg tapentadol hydrochloride each, as compared to a 116-mg tapentadol hydrochloride PR tablet (Reference Product) and to explore the effect of food on the bioavailability of the 2 new tapentadol formulations. Participants received a single dose of each of the test formulations under fasting or fed conditions and of the reference formulation under fasting conditions in a randomized order. There was a wash-out period of at least 3 days between consecutive treatments. Blood samples were taken from pre-dose up to 32 hours post-dose for pharmacokinetic analyses. Furthermore, the study compared the safety and tolerability of the test formulations with that of the reference. Adverse events and vital signs were documented at screening, pre-dose, and up to 32 hours post-dose. Clinical laboratory parameters were determined and 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECG) were recorded at screening and at discharge. A final medical examination was performed at 2-14 days after discharge following the last treatment.
