Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Prograf® Capsule 1 mg Drug: Tacrolimus 1 mg Capsule
Subjects will be administered either Test Product or Reference Product with 240 mL of water according to randomization schedule
Other Name: Tacrolimus Capsule
Experimental: Tacrolimus Capsule 1 mg Drug: Tacrolimus 1 mg Capsule
Subjects will be administered either Test Product or Reference Product with 240 mL of water according to randomization schedule
Other Name: Tacrolimus Capsule

Detailed Description:

Total 36 normal healthy adult male 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 High Fat Breakfast half an hour before administration of the study drug and for four (4) additional hours each, post dose during each study period. 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 A total of 26 blood samples will be withdrawn for pharmacokinetic profiling. The whole blood concentrations of Tacrolimus will be measured by a validated LC/MS/MS analytical method. Ratio analysis will be performed for untransformed and log transformed pharmacokinetic parameters Cmax, AUC0-72, AUC0 inf. ANOVA will be performed on log transformed pharmacokinetic parameters Cmax, AUC0-72, AUC0-inf and 90% confidence interval will be constructed for the ratio of geometric least square mean of the Test and Reference products, obtained from the log-transformed data. Bioequivalence will be concluded if the ratio estimate as well as its 90% confidence interval, both falls within the acceptable range of 80.00% to 125.00% for Cmax, AUC0-72 and AUC0-inf.
