Aims: To explore the effect of food intake on the relative bioavailability of R1663 and on its pharmacodynamic effects (prothrombin time (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT)) after a single oral dose of 200 mg. Methods: This was a prospective, open-label, randomized, two-way crossover study. Eight healthy male volunteers received R1663 on two occasions, after a high fat/high calorie breakfast and after an overnight fast of 10 h, with a 7-day washout between doses. Blood was sampled up to 48 h for the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic evaluation of R1663. Pharmacokinetic parameters (area under the plasma concentration-time curve from Time 0 extrapolated to infinity (AUC0-∞) and maximal concentration (Cmax)) as well as pharmacodynamic parameters (area under the effect curve over 48 h (AUE0-48) and maximal effect (Emax)) were determined on both occasions. Geometric mean ratios fed/ fasted (GMR) and 90% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated for AUC0-∞ and Cmax of R1663 and AUE0-48 and Emax of PT and aPTT. Results: Following food intake, Cmax was reduced by 10% with CI extended outside the bioequivalence range (GMR, 0.90; CI 0.72 - 1.13). R1663 tmax was delayed in the fed state (4 h) as compared to the fasted state (1 h). There was no significant food effect on R1663 AUC0-∞ (GMR, 1.09; CI 0.97 - 1.24). Although the Emax of PT showed statistically significant reduction with food, the 90% CIs for Emax and AUE0-48 of PT and aPTT were all contained within the bioequivalence range (0.80 - 1.25). Conclusions: These findings will allow the administration of R1663 without regard to food in the upcoming trials.
