Transition from Syringe to Autoinjector Based on Bridging Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of the P2Y12 Receptor Antagonist Selatogrel in Healthy Subjects

Publication: Clinical Pharmacokinetics


Selatogrel is a potent, reversible, and selective antagonist of the platelet P2Y12 receptor currently developed for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). In the completed Phase I/II studies, selatogrel was subcutaneously (s.c.) administered as a lyophilizate-based formulation by syringe by a healthcare professional. In the Phase III study, selatogrel will be self-administered s.c. as a liquid formulation with an autoinjector at the onset of AMI symptoms to shorten treatment delay. This clinical bridging study compared the pharmacokinetics (PK) of selatogrel between the different formulations.
