We propose oral dosing of GIPET enhanced oral acyline at 20 mg everyday for one week to
determine the steady-state (multiple-dose) pharmacokinetics of oral acyline in four normal,
healthy young men.
The purpose of this study is to test how the body responds to a new oral form of acyline
given for seven days and to also look at the safety of oral acyline.
Acyline temporarily blocks the production of the hormone testosterone in normal men. It has
been tested in over 100 men in an injection form. This study will be testing acyline in a
pill form for seven days.
This study may help develop an oral form of testosterone-blocker which may be useful in the
treatment of diseases such as prostate cancer, premature puberty and possibly in a male
This study will evaluate a single dose of oral acyline given once a day for seven days.
