Paroxetine plasma PK profile
TMC125 is a next-generation NNRTI with
demonstrated activity in treatment-experienced HIV-
infected patients, including those with NNRTI resistance.
TMC125 800mg bid
Paroxetine is widely used for the treatment of psychiatric
disorders and is primarily metabolised by CYP2D6.
TMC125 is a substrate of CYP3A4 and CYP2C and does

This was an open-label, randomised, two-way,

Treatment A, 20mg paroxetine qd was given for 7 days.

TMC125 is a next-generation NNRTI with potent activity against both wild-type
HIV-1 and HIV-1 resistant to current NNRTIs1
Two Phase III trials (DUET-1 and DUET-2) demonstrated significant antiviral
benefit after 24 weeks of treatment with TMC125 in treatment-experienced
patients with resistance to currently approved NNRTIs. Except for a higher incidence of rash, patients treated with TMC125 had an AE profile similar to
TMC125 is predominantly metabolised by the cytochrome P450 enzymes
CYP3A4, CYP2C9 and CYP2C19, followed by glucuronidation; it is an inducer
of CYP3A4 and an inhibitor of CYP2C9 and CYP2C19
Paroxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that is used in the
clinical management of depression and anxiety and is frequently administered
Paroxetine is primarily metabolised by CYP2D64,5 and partly by CYP3A4, and
subsequently conjugated into its pharmacologically inactive metabolites.
Paroxetine is also an inhibitor of CYP2D6

TMC125 PK parameters
TMC125-C165 was a Phase I, open-label, two-way, two-period crossover trial in 16 HIV-negative volunteers
Two treatment sessions (A and B) were scheduled for all volunteers,
separated by a washout period of at least 14 days as shown in the study
design scheme. Half of the volunteers were randomised to start with
Treatment A and half were randomised to start with Treatment B
TMC125 was administered as 800mg bid of Phase II formulation (TF035), which provides comparable exposure to that obtained with 200mg bid of
