Condition(s) targeted: Infections, Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Hepatitis

Intervention: Ethinyl Estadiol (Drug); Levonorgestrel (Drug); GSK1265744 (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):

This open-label, fixed-sequence crossover study aims to evaluate the effect of GSK1265744 (744) oral administration on the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of a commonly used oral contraceptive (OC) product (combination of ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel), in 20 healthy female subjects. Each subject will participate in a Run-in Period (if needed), followed by a single-sequence Treatment Period. Subjects will receive oral contraceptive containing Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol on Days 1 to 21 and be OC free on Days 22 to 28, during which withdrawal menses should occur. Subjects will receive OC alone on Days 1 to 10. Levonorgestrel (LNG) and ethinyl estradiol (EE) PK will be determined on Day 10. Subjects will then co-administer 744 and OC on Days 11 to 21. Levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol PK will be determined again on Day 21 to assess if co-administration with 744 results in a significant change in OC exposure compared to OC alone. Subjects will return to the study center for final follow-up evaluations 7 to 14 days after the last dose of study medication (Days 28 to 35).

Safety and tolerability of 744 when given with and without OC as assessed by Electrocardiogram (ECG)

Safety and tolerability of 744 when given with and without OC as assessed by vital signs

Composite of plasma pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of 744

Predose serum levels of Progesterone, Luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)

Composite of plasma PK parameters of 744 - AUC(0-tau), Cmax, tmax, Ctau and CL/F


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 45 Years. Gender(s): Female.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Healthy female subjects, as determined by a responsible and experienced physician,

based on a medical evaluation including medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests and cardiac monitoring.

- Females aged between 18 and 45 years of age inclusive, at the time of signing the

informed consent.

- A female subject is eligible to participate if she is of: Child-bearing potential

with negative pregnancy test as determined by serum hCG test at screening AND agrees to use one of the contraception methods listed in the protocol in addition to OC (containing levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol ) from Day 1 of the Run-In Period (if required) or Day 1 of Treatment Period 1 until 14 days after the last dose of study drug to sufficiently minimize the risk of pregnancy. Female subjects must agree to use an additional form of contraception throughout the study and for the subsequent post-study follow-up period OR Has only same-sex partners, when this is her preferred and usual lifestyle.

- Female subject's with a body mass index (BMI) of 18to 30 kilogram per meter square

(kg/m^2) and body weight >=50 kg (110 pounds [lbs]) and <114 kg (<250 lbs).

- Capable of giving written informed consent, which includes compliance with the

requirements and restrictions listed in the consent form

- Alanine transaminase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin <=1. 5x upper limit of

normal (ULN) (isolated bilirubin >1. 5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%). Exclusion Criteria:

- History of any condition that would contraindicate OC administration (which may

include hypertension, stroke, ischemic heart disease, venous thromboembolism or family history of thromboembolism, known factor V Leiden mutation or other gene mutations associated with increased risk of thromboembolism, migraine headaches, carcinoma of the breast, liver or endometrium, gallbladder disease, history of undiagnosed abnormal uterine bleeding, etc.).

- Current or chronic history of liver disease, or known hepatic or biliary

abnormalities (with the exception of Gilbert's syndrome or asymptomatic gallstones).

- History of regular alcohol consumption within 6 months of the study defined as: an

average weekly intake of >14 units for females. One unit is equivalent to 8 grams of alcohol: a half-pint (~240 milliliter [mL]) of beer, 1 glass (125 mL) of wine or 1 (25 mL) measure of spirits.

- History of sensitivity to any of the study medications, or components thereof or a

history of drug or other allergy that, in the opinion of the investigator or GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Medical Monitor, contraindicates their participation.

- A positive pre-study Hepatitis B surface antigen (or positive Hepatitis B core

antibody with negative hepatitis B surface antibody) or positive Hepatitis C antibody result within 3 months of screening

- A positive pre-study drug/alcohol screen.

- A positive test for Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody.

- The subject's systolic blood pressure is outside the range of 80-140 millimeter of

mercury (mmHg), or diastolic blood pressure is outside the range of 45-90mmHg.

- Exclusion criteria for screening ECG (Heart rate: <50 and >100 beats per minute

[bpm], PR Interval: <120 and >220 milliseconds [msec], QRS duration: <70 and >120 msec, QTc interval [Bazett]: >450 msec): evidence of previous myocardial infarction (Does not include ST segment changes associated with repolarization); any conduction abnormality (including but not specific to left or right complete bundle branch block, atrioventricular (AV) block [2nd degree or higher], Wolf Parkinson White [WPW] syndrome); sinus pauses > 3 seconds; any significant arrhythmia which, in the opinion of the principal investigator and GSK medical monitor, will interfere with the safety for the individual subject; non-sustained or sustained ventricular tachycardia (>=3 consecutive ventricular ectopic beats).

- Use of prescription or non-prescription drugs, including vitamins, herbal and dietary

supplements (including St John's Wort) within 7 days (or 14 days if the drug is a potential enzyme inducer) or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of study medication, unless in the opinion of the Investigator and GSK Medical Monitor the medication will not interfere with the study procedures or compromise subject safety.

- Where participation in the study would result in donation of blood or blood products

in excess of 500 mL within a 56 day period.

- Lactating females.

- Unwillingness or inability to follow the procedures outlined in the protocol.

- Subject is mentally or legally incapacitated.

- The subject has participated in a clinical trial and has received an investigational

product within the following time period prior to the first dosing day in the current study: 30 days, 5 half-lives or twice the duration of the biological effect of the investigational product (whichever is longer).

- Exposure to more than four new chemical entities within 12 months prior to the first

dosing day.
