Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study was to determine the bioequivalence of Doxycycline monohydrate formulations after administration of single doses to normal healthy subjects under fed conditions. These data were to be evaluated statistically to determine if the products meet bioequivalence criteria.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: Doxycycline monohydrate 100mg tablets Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The study was conducted as an open label, balanced, randomised, two-treatment, two-period, two-sequence, single-dose, crossover , bioequivalence study on Doxycycline monohydrate comparing Doxycycline monohydrate 100mg tablets of Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals Inc with Adoxa ® 100 mg tablets of Bradley Pharmaceuticals Inc. in healthy, adult, human, subjects under fed conditions.

A total of 32 non-smoking subjects (21 men and 11 women) were included in this study, of which 32 finished the study according to the protocol.
