Brief Summary:
The study was conducted as an open label, balanced, randomized, two-treatment, two-period, two-sequence, single-dose, crossover bioavailability study comparing ramipril 10 mg capsules of Ohm Laboratories Inc., with Altace® capsule 10 mg (containing ramipril 10 mg) manufactured by King Pharmaceuticals Inc, Bristol and Distributed by Monarch Pharmaceuticals Inc, Bristol in healthy, adult, male, human subjects under fed condition.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: Ramipril 10mg capsules Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

A single oral dose of ramipril 10 mg capsule was administered with 240 mL of drinking water at ambient temperature 30 minutes after start of a high-fat high-caloric breakfast under the supervision of trained study personnel.

A total of thirty-two (32) subjects were randomized to receive a single oral dose of the test (T) and reference (R) formulation of ramipril 10 mg capsule. One subject (subject No. 18) was withdrawn and one dropped out (subject No. 10) from the study in period I. One subject (subject No. 20) dropped out and two subjects were withdrawn (subject No. 27, 29) from the study in period II.

A total of twenty-seven (27) subjects completed both the periods of the study.
