LCB01-0371 is a novel oxazolidinone antibiotic that blocks protein production by binding to bacterial 23S ribosomes. This antibiotic is active against Gram-positive bacteria. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of food on the pharmacokinetics (PKs) of LCB01-0371 and evaluate its safety profile.
A randomized, open-label, two-way crossover study was performed in 18 healthy Korean male subjects. All subjects received a single oral 800 mg dose of LCB01-0371 in each period under fed or fasting condition with a 7-day washout in between. The fed condition was defined as consumption of a meal of 800–1,000 kcal containinĝ50% of fat content. Serial blood samples were collected over 24 h after dosing, and the PK parameters were calculated by noncompartment analysis. All available data of the subjects who received LCB01-0371 at least once were included in the safety data summaries.
In the fed condition, both the maximum plasma concentration ( C max) and the total systemic exposure (area under the plasma concentration–time curve from time zero to the last observed time point [AUC last]) decreased by ~33% and 10%, respectively. The time to reach C max was delayed by ~1.25 h in the fed condition, whereas the mean elimination half-life remained similar in both conditions. In the fed/fasting condition, the geometric mean ratios and 90% CI of the C max and AUC last were 0.666 (0.470–0.945) and 0.897 (0.761–1.057), respectively. There were no drug-related adverse events (AEs) or serious AEs.
