Condition(s) targeted: Healthy

Intervention: Telmisartan/Amlodipine low dose (Drug); Telmisartan/Amlodipine high dose (Drug); Japanese meal (Other)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Boehringer Ingelheim


Study to investigate the relative bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of the fixed-dose combination tablets (telmisartan 40 mg/amlodipine 5 mg and telmisartan 80 mg/amlodipine 5 mg) in the fed condition compared with those of the same fixed-dose combination in the fasting condition in healthy Japanese male volunteers.

Clinical Details

Official title: Influence of Food on the Bioavailability of Telmisartan 40 mg/Amlodipine 5 mg Fixed-dose Combination and of Telmisartan 80 mg/Amlodipine 5 mg Fixed-dose Combination in Healthy Japanese Male Volunteers (a Phase I, Open-label, Randomised, Single-dose, Two-way Crossover Trial)

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:

Area under the concentration-time curve of the analyte in plasma over the time interval from 0 to the time of the last quantifiable data point (AUC0-tz)

Maximum measured concentration of the analyte in plasma (Cmax)

Secondary outcome:

Area under the concentration-time curve of the analyte in plasma over the time interval from 0 extrapolated to infinity (AUC0-∞)

Time from dosing to the maximum concentration of the analyte in plasma (tmax)

Terminal rate constant of the analyte in plasma (λz)

Terminal half-life of the analyte in plasma (t1/2)

Mean residence time of the analyte in the body after po administration (MRTpo)

Number of subjects with adverse events


Minimum age: 20 Years. Maximum age: 35 Years. Gender(s): Male.
