Please be advised that due to the high volume of submissions, the ANZCTR is currently experiencing delays in processing submissions from those outside of Australia and New Zealand. As the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first. International submissions should allow additional time for registration. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Health condition
Health condition(s) or problem(s) studied:
Bioequivalence study conducted in healthy volunteers comparing two formulations of clobazam with no health condition or problem studied.

Although this study is being conducted in healthy volunteers who are not being treated for the condition to which the medicine is used, clobazam is a benzodiazepine indicated for adjunctive treatment of seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) in patients 2 years of age or older. In New Zealand clobazam is a category C5 Controlled drug and is a Schedule IV controlled substance in the U.S.

Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Single dose, crossover study design whereby each participant receives the test formulation of clobazam (1 x 20 mg of 2.5 mg/mL) on one occasion and the innovator formulation of clobazam (1 x 20 mg of 2.5 mg/mL) on one occasion with each dose seperated by a three week washout period. The intervention for this trial is the test formulation of clobazam.

No water is allowed for 1 hour prior to dosing until 1 hour after dosing (except for the water consumed with the dose).

Participants are required not to eat for 10 hours before receiving a standardised high fat content meal and to fast for approximately 4 hours after each dose. Subjects will be required to consume the entire contents of the standardised high fat content meal prior to their scheduled dosing time.. They will be given 30 minutes before dosing to consume the meal.

Bathroom visits will be supervised to ensure no unauthorised water or food intake and for personal safety. Participants will be confined at the Clinical Site for 10 hours prior to dosing to ensure compliance and will be monitored for 24 hours including pulse oximetry and vital sign for 8 hours after dosing.

Standard meals will be consumed at the Clinical Site with no additional food intake allowed. Alcohol breath testing will be performed upon each participant reporting to the Clinical Site 10 hours prior to dosing.

Pre and post study laboratory tests will be completed to assess the health of participants along with HIV, Hepatitis and drugs of abuse testing.

Each dose will be taken orally with 240 ml of water at ambient temperature. Medication must be swallowed whole and a mouth check will be conducted to ensure the medication has been taken as directed.

Comparator / control treatment
Single dose, crossover study design whereby each participant receives the test formulation of clobazam (1 x 20 mg of 2.5 mg/mL) on one occasion and the innovator formulation of clobazam (1 x 20 mg of 2.5 mg/mL) on one occasion with each dose seperated by a three week washout period. The comparator/control for this trial is the innovator formulation of clobazam.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 299840 0
To compare the bioavailability of clobazam (as summarised by Cmax and AUC) for the formulation. All plasma samples will be assayed for clobazam using one fully validated LC/MS/MS method. Validation will be conducted to comply with EU and FDA guidelines.

Treatment
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
All formulations will be labelled as Formulation A and B. The identification of each treatment will only be known to the Managing Director and the Section Head - Trials and Regulatory Affairs or their delegates. The Trial Physician and Principal Investigator are completely blinded and do not know what treatments are allocated to each subject who has been deemed eligible for participation. Allocation concealment to each formulation is completed by central randomisation by computer.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Each participant will be identified by a 3 digit screening number and a 2 digit subject number. The screening number will be issued once the participant has given written consent to participate in the study and the two digit subject number (randomisation number) after acceptance into the study. Allocation of the subject number is completed by simple randomisation using a randomisation table created by computer software.
