Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Boehringer Ingelheim


Study to investigate the effect of food intake on the bioavailability of a fixed dose combination of 80 mg telmisartan / 10 mg amlodipine following a high fat breakfast

Clinical Details

Official title: Influence of Food on the Bioavailability of 80 mg Telmisartan/10 mg Amlodipine Fixed Dose Combination in Healthy Male and Female Volunteers. An Open-label, Randomised, Single-dose, Two Period, Crossover Study

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

Primary outcome:

Maximum measured concentration of the analyte in plasma (Cmax)

Secondary outcome:

Area under the concentration-time curve of telmisartan and amlodipine in plasma over the time interval zero to the last quantifiable data point (AUC0-tz)

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

Terminal rate constant in plasma (λz)

Terminal half-life in plasma (t1/2)

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

Apparent plasma clearance after p.o. administration (CL/F)

Apparent volume of distribution during the terminal phase λz after p.o. administration (Vz/F)

Number of subjects with adverse events

Assessment of tolerability by investigator on a 4-point scale


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 55 Years. Gender(s): Both.

Use of drugs which might reasonably influence the results of the trial (especially unspecific inducing agents like St. John´s wort (Hypericum perforatum) or inhibitors like cimetidine) or that prolong the QT/corrected QT interval based on the knowledge at the time of protocol preparation within 10 days prior to administration or during the trial 11. Participation in another trial with an investigational drug within one month prior to administration or during the trial 12. Smoker (> 10 cigarettes or > 3 cigars or > 3 pipes/day) 13.

Drug abuse 16. Blood donation (more than 100 mL within four weeks prior to administration or during the trial) 17. Excessive physical activities (within one week prior to administration or during the trial) 18. Any laboratory value outside the reference range that is of clinical relevance 19. Inability to comply with dietary regimen of trial site 20. Any history of relevant low blood pressure 21. Supine blood pressure at screening of systolic <110 mm Hg and diastolic <60 mm Hg 22. History of urticaria 23. History of angioneurotic edema 24. Fructose intolerance For female subjects: 25.

Females, who have not a vasectomised partner, are not sexually abstinent or surgically sterile will be asked to additionally use barrier contraception methods (e. g. condom, diaphragm with spermicide) 27.
