Taiwan, having four ethnic Chinese grandparents, holding a Chinese passport or
identity papers and being able to speak Chinese.

Japanese, Korean and Chinese subjects should also have lived outside their respective
countries for less than 10 years.

variants at screening.

- History of postural hypotension, dizziness, poor hydration, vertigo, vaso-vagal
reactions or any other signs and symptoms of orthostasis, which in the opinion of the
investigator could be exacerbated by tamsulosin and result in putting the subject at
risk of injury.

- Current or chronic history of liver disease, or known hepatic or biliary abnormalities
(with the exception of Gilbert's syndrome or asymptomatic gallstones.

- A positive pre-study Hepatitis B surface antigen or positive Hepatitis C antibody
result within 3 months of screening.

non-prescription drugs, including vitamins, herbal and dietary supplements (including
St John's Wort, Black Khosh, Dong Quai, Milk Thistle, licorice) 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.

- History of sensitivity to tamsulosin HCl or dutasteride, components thereof or drugs
of this class or a history of drug or other allergy that, in the opinion of the
investigator or GSK Medical Monitor, contraindicates their participation.

- A history of sensitivity to heparin or heparin-induced thrombocytopenia

- 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.

Lifestyle Exclusions:

- A positive pre-study drug/alcohol screen. A minimum list of drugs that will be
screened for include amphetamines, barbiturates, cocaine, opiates, cannabinoids and
benzodiazepines.

- History of regular alcohol consumption within 6 months of the screening visit defined
by the following Australian guidelines:

Males: An average weekly intake greater than 21 units or an average daily intake greater
than 3 units. One unit is equivalent to 270 mL of full strength beer, 470 mL of light beer,
30 mL of spirits and 100 mL of wine.

Subjects must be able and willing to abstain from beverages and foods containing alcohol 24
hours prior to and during the dosing day.

- Consumption of red wine, grapefruit juice, grapefruit and related hybrids from 7 days
prior to the first dose of study medication.

- Where participation in the study would result in donation of blood or blood products
in excess of 500 mL within a 56 day period.

Summary
Brief summary
This study is an open-label, randomized, single dose, multi-stage, cross-over study in
healthy male subjects of North East Asian ancestry. The aims are to:

- evaluate the pharmacokinetic parameters of several formulations of a fixed dose
combination (FDC) capsule of dutasteride and tamsulosin hydrochloride (0.5 mg/0.2 mg)
relative to co-administration of dutasteride 0.5 mg capsules and tamsulosin
hydrochloride 0.2 mg tablets in the fasted state in order to define a formulation which
is bioequivalent to a 0.2 mg orally disintegrating tamsulosin tablet, (Harnal-D Tablets)

- determine the effect of food on the relative bioavailability of tamsulosin in the FDC
product which is assessed to be bioequivalent to Harnal-D Tablets in the fasted state

- assess the effect of water on the relative bioavailability of tamsulosin in Harnal-D
Tablets in the fasted state

- assess the safety and tolerability of dosing with the different FDC capsule formulations
Subjects will receive single oral doses in at least one treatment period; treatment
periods will be separated by a 5-10 day washout period. Blood samples for
pharmacokinetic analysis will be taken at regular intervals after dosing. Safety will be
assessed by measurement of blood pressure, heart rate and review of adverse events. Each
stage of the study will enrol 18 subjects to ensure 16 complete. Subjects may consent to
participate in more than one stage.
