Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
amoxicillin tablets for oral suspension 600 mg by Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited
Drug: Amoxicillin 600mg
Active Comparator: 2
Amoxil ® for oral suspension 400 mg/ 5 mL by SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals (600mg dose)
Drug: Amoxicillin 600mg

Detailed Description:

A single oral dose of the test or reference product was administered to volunteers on two separate occasions under fasting conditions with at least a 7 day washout between the doses. Twenty-six healthy volunteers were randomly assigned to the test or the reference products. Food and fluid intake were controlled during each confinement period.

Twenty six (26) healthy subjects (16 males and 10 females) were enrolled in the study, of which 25 subjects completed the clinical phase of the study.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  3. Each volunteer will complete a screening process within 28 days prior to Period I dosing. Consent documents for both the screening evaluation and HIV antibody determination will be reviewed, discussed, and signed by each potential participant before full implementation of screening procedures
  4. If female and:

    • of child bearing potential, is practicing an acceptable method of birth control for the duration of the study as judged by the investigator(s), such as condoms, foams, jellies, diaphragm, intrauterine device (IUD), or abstinence; or

    • is surgically sterile (bilateral tubal ligation, bilateral oophorectomy, or hysterectomy)

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Volunteers with a recent history of drug or alcohol addiction or abuse
  2. Volunteers with the presence of a clinically significant disorder involving the cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, immunologic, hematologic, endocrine, or neurologic system(s) or psychiatric disease (as determined by the clinical investigators)
  3. Volunteers whose clinical laboratory test values are outside the accepted reference range and when confirmed on re-examination are deemed to be clinically significant
  4. Volunteers demonstrating a positive hepatitis B surface antigen screen or a reactive HIV antibody screen
  5. Volunteers demonstrating a positive drug abuse screen when screened for this study
  6. Female volunteers demonstrating a positive pregnancy screen
  7. Female volunteers who are currently breastfeeding
  8. Volunteers with a history of allergic response(s) to amoxicillin or related drugs
  9. Volunteers with a history of clinically significant allergies including drug allergies
  10. Volunteers with a clinically significant illness during the 4 weeks prior to period I dosing (as determined by the clinical investigators)
  11. Volunteers who currently use tobacco products
  12. Volunteers who have taken any drug known o induce or inhibit hepatic drug metabolism in the 30 days prior to period I dosing
  13. Volunteers who report donating greater than 150 mL of blood within 30 days prior to period I dosing. All subjects will be advised not to donate blood for four weeks after completing the study
  14. Volunteers who have donated plasma (e.g. plasmapheresis) within 14 days prior to period I dosing. All subjects will be advised not to donate plasma for four weeks after completing the study
  15. Volunteers who report receiving any investigational drug within 30 days prior to period I dosing
  16. Volunteers who report taking any systemic prescription medication in the 14 days prior to period I dosing.
