Saniona, a leading biotech company in the field of ion channels, today announced that it has dosed the first 10 participants in a Phase 1 pharmacokinetic study of Tesomet using the new patented single tablet formulation. The trial will comprise a total of 60 volunteers. Saniona expects to report results from the trial in the second quarter 2018.
"We have invested significant time and effort into producing our new patented and GMP validated Tesomet fixed dose combination tablets together with our formulation partner Solural. It is very exciting for us to evaluate this innovative formulation in humans for the first time," commented Jørgen Drejer, CEO of Saniona.
The primary objective of this Phase 1 study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile and bioavailability of a single dose of the Tesomet fixed-dose combination tablet (containing both tesofensine and metoprolol) compared to the co-administration of separate tesofensine and metoprolol tablets.
This is a randomized, open-label, parallel-arm study in 60 healthy male subjects. Each subject will participate in a screening period, a baseline period, and a single-dose treatment period with an on-site observation period of at least 48 hours after the dose. The study is being conducted by Parexel in Germany at their clinical site in Berlin.
Further details about the trial can be found at ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT03286829
