In this study, the safety and pharmacokinetics of 10 % terbinafine hydrogen chloride (HCl) nail lacquer wre investigated by comparison with vehicle control and 1% terbinafine cream

Study summary:

This was a double-blind, randomized, parallel-design, placebo-controlled Phase 1 study comparing 10% Terbinafine HCl Nail Lacquer vs. Placebo Nail Lacquer (i.e., vehicle control). For comparative purposes, the study also included a contemporaneous assessment of 1% Lamisil® Cream (1% terbinafine HCl) and Lamisil® Tablets (terbinafine HCl labeled as 250 mg of terbinafine). Forty (40) onychomycosis (Groups 1 and 2) and 16 tinea pedis (Group 3) patients were enrolled at 3 study centers. In Group 1, 10% Terbinafine HCl Nail Lacquer, and, in Group 2, its vehicle (0% terbinafine HCl), were applied topically by brushing on a dose volume of approximately 10 μL per nail twice daily for 28 days to each toenail and to 5 mm of adjacent skin. The patients visited the study center on Days 3, 7, 14, 21, and 28 for assessments of clinical signs and to obtain blood samples. In addition, a 24-hour urine sample was collected and assessed on Day 28 and Day 35. Fifty six (56) patients (20 in Group 1, 20 in Group 2, and 16 in Group 3) received a single oral dose of a 250 mg Lamisil® Tablet after a 7-day washout period. For comparative purposes, the study also evaluated the local and systemic safety, and plasma levels of terbinafine, and its 3 major metabolites (i.e., desmethyl terbinafine, carboxybutyl terbinafine, and desmethyl carboxybutyl terbinafine) following administration of 1% Lamisil® Cream in comparison with 10% Terbinafine HCl Nail Lacquer. In Group 3, approximately 0.5 g of 1% Lamisil® Cream was applied twice a day for 7 days to the area of the foot affected with tinea pedis. The patients visited the study center on Day 3 and on Day 7 for assessments of clinical signs and collection of blood samples. A 24-hour urine sample was collected and assessed on Day 7 and Day 14.
