GS-9857, an inhibitor of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) nonstructural protein (NS) 3/4A, demonstrates potent activity against HCV genotypes 1-6 and improved coverage against commonly encountered NS3 resistance-associated variants (RAVs). In this study, the safety, tolerability, antiviral activity and pharmacokinetics (PK) of GS-9857 were evaluated in patients with chronic HCV genotype 1-4 infection. Patients with genotype 1-4 infection received placebo or once-daily GS-9857 at doses ranging from 50 to 300 mg for 3 days under fasting conditions. GS-9857 was well tolerated; all reported adverse events (AEs) were mild or moderate in severity. Diarrhoea and headache were the most commonly reported AEs. Grade 3 or 4 laboratory abnormalities were observed in 17% of patients receiving GS-9857; there were no Grade 3 or 4 abnormalities in alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase or alkaline phosphatase levels. GS-9857 demonstrated potent antiviral activity in patients with chronic HCV infection, achieving mean and median maximum reductions in HCV RNA of ≥3 log10 IU/mL following administration of a 100-mg dose in patients with HCV genotype 1a, 1b, 2, 3 or 4 infection. The antiviral activity of GS-9857 was unaffected by the presence of pretreatment NS3 RAVs. In patients with genotype 1-4 infection, GS-9857 exhibited linear PK and was associated with a median half-life of 29-42 h, supporting once-daily dosing. Thus, the tolerability, efficacy and pharmacokinetic profile of GS-9857 support its further evaluation for treatment of patients with chronic HCV infection. © 2016 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Cabozantinib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor approved for the treatment of patients with progressive, metastatic medullary thyroid cancer. Two clinical pharmacology studies were conducted to characterize single-dose pharmacokinetics (PK) of cabozantinib in renally or hepatically impaired subjects. Study 1 enrolled 10 subjects, each with mild or moderate impairment of renal function; 12 healthy subjects were matched to the moderate group for age, sex, and body mass index (BMI). Study 2 enrolled 8 males each with mild or moderate hepatic impairment; 10 healthy males were matched to the moderate group for age, BMI, and ethnicity. All subjects received one 60 mg cabozantinib oral capsule dose followed by PK sampling over 21 days. Plasma concentration and protein binding were determined by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry and equilibrium dialysis, respectively. PK parameters were computed using noncompartmental methods. Geometric least squared mean (LSM) ratios for plasma cabozantinib AUC0-∞ for impaired to normal organ function cohorts were (1) approximately 30% and 6% higher in subjects with mild and moderate renal impairment, respectively, and (2) approximately 81% and 63% higher in subjects with mild and moderate hepatic impairment, respectively. The percentage of unbound drug was slightly higher in both moderately impaired cohorts. No deaths or discontinuations due to adverse events occurred in either study. Cabozantinib should be used with caution in subjects with mild or moderate renal impairment. Subjects with mild or moderate hepatic impairment administered cabozantinib should be monitored closely for potential treatment-emergent drug toxicity that may necessitate a dose hold or reduction. © 2016, The American College of Clinical Pharmacology.
