Phase I study of Y-20811, a new long-acting thromboxane synthetase inhibitor by oral administration.

The safety, pharmacological action and pharmacokinetics of the thromboxane (TX) synthetase inhibitor Y-20811, a prospective medication for ischemic vascular disorder, were investigated in Phase I clinical trials in which single and repeated doses were administered orally to 32 healthy adult male volunteers. In the single-dose study, subjects were given single doses of 2.5, 5, 10, 25, 50, and 100 mg; in the repeated-dose study, a single dose of 50 mg was administered daily for 5 days. In the repeated-dose study, slight elevation of liver function test parameters in 1 subject was observed, but throughout the trials, no abnormality attributable to the test drug was found in other routine laboratory tests, subjective and objective findings, vital signs (blood pressure, pulse rate, body temperature, respiration rate), ECG, or bleeding time; nor did any finding indicate a problem concerning the safety of Y-20811. In both single- and repeated-dose studies, inhibition of the serum TXB2 production and an increase in the 6-keto-prostaglandin F1 alpha production during whole-blood coagulation, and inhibition of arachidonic acid-induced platelet aggregation were observed from 1 hour after administration of Y-20811. The duration of these actions was long, the former two lasting 168 hours (1 week) and the latter 48-72 hours or more. Slight inhibition of adenosine diphosphate-induced secondary platelet aggregation was also observed. The maximum plasma concentration time (tmax) of Y-20811 was 0.5-1.1 hours. The initial-phase half-life (t1/2 alpha) was 0.8-1.1 hours and the final-phase half-life (t1/2 beta) was 4.7-9.2 hours.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)[1]
