Information source: Celgene Corporation
ClinicalTrials.gov processed this data on August 23, 2015
Link to the current ClinicalTrials.gov record.

Condition(s) targeted: Healthy

Intervention: Lenalidomide (Drug); Quinidine (Drug); Temsirolimus (Drug); Diphenhydramine (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Celgene Corporation

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Edward O'Mara, MD, Study Director, Affiliation: Celgene Corporation


To find out if the blood level of lenalidomide can be changed when a drug that prevents p-glycoprotein (a protein naturally present in the body that helps carry substances across cell membranes that is found in many parts of the body like the intestines, liver, and kidneys) from working (called a P-gp inhibitor) when taken together with lenalidomide. The study is also trying to find out if blood level of temsirolimus can be changed when a subject takes lenalidomide together with temsirolimus.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Phase 1, Open-Label, Two-Part, Fixed-Sequence Crossover Study to Evaluate the Effect of P-glycoprotein Inhibition on Lenalidomide Pharmacokinetics in Healthy Male Subjects

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Primary outcome:

Lenalidomide PK-AUC (0-24)

Lenalidomide PK-(Cmax)

Lenalidomide PK-(Tmax)

Lenalidomide PK-AUC(0-t)

Lenalidomide PK-AUC(0-∞)

Lenalidomide PK-(T1/2)

Temsirolimus and Sirolimus PK-AUC (0-24)

Temsirolimus and Sirolimus PK-(Cmax)

Temsirolimus and Sirolimus PK-(Tmax)

Temsirolimus and Sirolimus PK-(AUC 0-t)

Secondary outcome: Number of participants with adverse events

Detailed description: This will be a single-center, open label, 2-part study. Part 1 will be a two-period, fixed-sequence crossover study with lenalidomide alone in Period 1, followed by lenalidomide in combination with quinidine in Period 2. Part 2 will be a fixed-sequence, three-period, crossover study with lenalidomide alone in Period 1, temsirolimus (via direct intravenous infusion) in Period 2, and lenalidomide in combination with temsirolimus (via direct intravenous infusion) in Period 3. Diphenhydramine (given via intravenous injection) will be administered shortly before temsirolimus in order to decrease the chances of an allergic reaction to temsirolimus. Part 1 and Part 2 will be conducted at the same time. Subjects can only participate in either Part 1 or Part 2.
