Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: plasma samples were obtained from blood drawn at 0 (within 60 minutes prior to dose), 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.25, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20 and 24 hours (18 samples) after administration of the dose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The maximum or peak concentration that the drug reaches in the plasma

  • Area Under the Concentration Versus Time Curve From Time 0 to Time t [AUC(0-t)] [ Time Frame: plasma samples were obtained from blood drawn at 0 (within 60 minutes prior to dose), 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.25, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20 and 24 hours (18 samples) after administration of the dose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The area under the plasma concentration versus time curve, from time 0 to the time of the last measurable concentration (t)

  • The Area Under the Plasma Concentration Versus Time Curve From Time 0 to Infinity AUC(0-∞) [ Time Frame: plasma samples were obtained from blood drawn at 0 (within 60 minutes prior to dose), 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.25, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20 and 24 hours (18 samples) after administration of the dose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The area under the plasma concentration versus time curve from time 0 to infinity. AUC(0-∞) was calculated as the sum of AUC(0-t) plus the ratio of the last measurable plasma concentration to the elimination rate constant.
