Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Cellcept® 250 mg Capsule Drug: Mycophenolate Mofetil Capsule 250 mg
Subjects will be administered either Test Product or Reference Product with 240 mL of water according to randomization schedule
Other Name: Mycophenolate Mofetil Capsule
Experimental: Mycophenolate Mofetil Capsule 250 mg Drug: Mycophenolate Mofetil Capsule 250 mg
Subjects will be administered either Test Product or Reference Product with 240 mL of water according to randomization schedule
Other Name: Mycophenolate Mofetil Capsule

Detailed Description:

48 +8 (stand-by) normal healthy adult subjects will be enrolled in the study. Subjects will be administered either the Test or the Reference Product with 240 mL of water in each period as per the randomization schedule. Subjects will fast for at least 10 hours prior to dose administration and for at least 4 hours post dose. Standardized meals will be provided in each study period. Water will not be accessible to the subjects 1 hour Predose and 2 hours Post dose in each period. A total of 28 blood samples will be withdrawn for pharmacokinetic profiling. The concentration of mycophenolate mofetil and mycophenolic acid will be quantitated using validated LC-MS / MS method.ANOVA, two one-sided tests for bioequivalence, power and ratio analysis for un-transformed and ln-transformed pharmacokinetic parameters Cmax, AUC0-t AUC0-inf will be computed and reported for Mycophenolic acid. Bioequivalence of the test product with that of the reference product under fasting conditions will be concluded if the 90% confidence interval falls within the acceptance range of 80.00-125.00% for ln-transformed pharmacokinetic parameters Cmax, AUC0-t and AUC0-inf for Mycophenolic acid.
