This study will compare the bioavailabity of three new investigational combination formulations of Premarin and medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) with a currently marketed formulation of Premarin and MPA, Prempro™. Prempro™ is indicated for use after menopause in women with a uterus to reduce moderate to severe hot flashes; to treat moderate to severe dryness, itching, and burning, in and around the vagina; and to help reduce your chances of getting osteoporosis (thin weak bones). The purpose of this study is to determine if these new formulations of Premarin/MPA provide the same levels of estrogen and MPA in the blood as Prempro in healthy postmenopausal women.

Condition Intervention Phase
Estrogen Replacement Therapy Drug: conjugated estrogens/progestin (MPA) Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-Label, Single-Dose, Randomized, 4-Period, Crossover, Bioavailability Study Among 3 New Formulations of Premarin 0.625 mg/Medroxyprogesterone Acetate (Mpa) 2.5 mg Compared With a Reference Formulation of Premarin/Mpa (Prempro) 0.625 mg/2.5 mg in Healthy Postmenopausal Women

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic blood samples for unconjugated and total (unconjugated plus conjugated) estrogens and MPA will be obtained. The following pharmacokinetic parameters will be determined: Cmax, Tmax, t½, AUC0-T, AUC0-¥.

Study Start Date: November 2006
Study Completion Date: February 2007

Ages Eligible for Study:   35 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Senior)

Naturally postmenopausal women must not have had a menstrual period since the age of 54. Surgically menopausal women must have undergone bilateral oophorectomy (removal of both ovaries) at least 6 months prior to the start of the study, and the surgical report may be requested to confirm the surgery date and that the surgery was not due to a cancerous condition.
