Fed Bioavailability Study of Lovastatin Tablets and Mevacor Tablets
A Single Dose Crossover Comparative Bioavailability Study of Lovastatin 40mg Tablets in Healthy Male Volunteers/Fed State

The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the relative bioavailability and therefore the bioequivalence of a test formulation of Lovastatin tablets to an equivalent dose of Mevacor® tablets after a single oral dose administered under fed conditions.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the relative bioavailability and therefore the bioequivalence of a test formulation of Lovastatin tablets to an equivalent dose of Mevacor® tablets after a single oral dose administered under fed conditions.

Fifty-four healthy, light/non/or ex-smoking, non-obese, male volunteers at least 18 years of age will be randomly assigned in a crossover fashion to receive each of two Lovastatin dosing regimens in sequence with a 7 day washout period between dosing periods. On the morning of Day 1, after an overnight fast of at least 10 hours, subjects will receive a standardized high-fat, high-calorie meal 30 minutes before drug administration. Thirty minutes after the start of the breakfast, a single oral dose of either the test formulation, Lovastatin (1 x 40 mg tablet), or a single oral dose of the reference formulation, Mevacor® (1 x 40 mg tablet) will be administered. After a 7 day washout period, on the morning of Day 8, following an overnight fast of at least 10 hours and 30 minutes after the start of a standardized high-fat, high-calorie meal, subjects will receive the alternate regimen. Blood samples will be drawn from all participants before dosing and for 24 hours post-dose on a confined basis at times sufficient to adequately define the pharmacokinetics of Lovastatin. Blood sampling will then continue on a non-confined basis at 36 and 48 hours post-dose. A further goal of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of this regimen in healthy volunteers. Subjects will be monitored throughout the confinement portion of the study for adverse reactions to the study drug and/or procedures. Vital signs will be monitored if judged necessary by the physician in charge. All adverse events whether elicited by query, spontaneously reported, or observed by clinic staff will be evaluated by the Investigator and reported in the subject's case report form.
