Phase I Study to Evaluate Bioavailability of Overencapsulated Celecoxib

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
POZEN Identifier:
First received: August 5, 2008
Last updated: May 12, 2009
Last verified: May 2009
Phase I study designed to test the hypothesis that overencapsulated celecoxib 200 mg qd is bioequivalent to commercial celecoxib 200 mg qd. Approximately 90 healthy volunteers will be randomized to yield approximately 80 completers. The study is an open label, randomized, 2-way crossover with single dosing followed by a 7-day washout period between treatment arms

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Volunteer Drug: celecoxib Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Official Title: Phase I, Randomized, Open-Label, 2-Way Crossover Study to Evaluate Relative Bioavailability of Single Oral Dose of Celecoxib Administered as Marketed Product, or Overencapsulated Capsule in Healthy Volunteers
