Trial Purpose

The primary objective of the study is to
•    Investigate the relative bioavailability of sorafenib as 400 mg (4 x 100 mg) tablet for oral suspension formulation in comparison to 400 mg (2 x 200 mg) marketed tablet formulation.
The secondary objectives of this study are to
•    Evaluate the dose proportionality in sorafenib pharmacokinetics for sorafenib tablet for oral suspension formulation after administration of 200 mg (2 x 100 mg) and 400 mg (4 x 100 mg) dose of sorafenib in fasted state
•    Evaluate the effect of food on the pharmacokinetics of the tablet for oral suspension formulation after administration of a single dose of 400 mg sorafenib (4 x 100mg)
•    Evaluate the taste and palatability of sorafenib (both formulations)
•    Assess the safety and tolerability of sorafenib tablet for oral suspension in healthy male subjects

Inclusion Criteria

Exclusion Criteria
- Medical and surgical history:
 -- Failure of a major organ system or a medical disorder that would impair the subject’s ability to complete the study or that would alter the absorption and pharmacokinetics of the study drug
 -- Active infections or other medical, psychological or social problems of sufficient severity to limit full compliance with the trial
 -- Known severe allergies, non-allergic drug reactions, or multiple drug allergies
 -- History of clinically significant metabolic, renal, hepatic, or cardiovascular disease or central nervous system disorder
 -- Clinically significant illness within 30 days  before first study drug administration.
 -- Febrile illness within 1 week before the first study drug administration
 -- Known hypersensitivity to study drug
 -- Incompletely cured pre-existing diseases for which it can be assumed that the absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination and effects of the study drugs will not be normal
 - Electrocardiogram (ECG), blood pressure, heart rate:
 -- Clinically relevant findings in the ECG (e.g. a second- or third-degree AV block, prolongation of the QRS complex over 120 msec or of the QTc-interval over 450 msec)
 - Laboratory examination:
 -- Clinically relevant deviations of the screened laboratory parameters from reference ranges (especially for gamma-GT, ALT, AST, or bilirubin)
 -- Positive results for hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis C virus antibodies (anti-HCV), human immune deficiency virus antibodies (anti-HIV)
