Relative Bioavailability Study Of Two Lincomycin Hydrochloride Hard Gelatinous Capsule

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Pfizer Identifier:
First received: January 27, 2010
Last updated: April 25, 2011
Last verified: April 2011
To assess the relative bioavailability of two different batches of Frademicina® drug product, containing 500 mg lincomycin hydrocloride, manufactured by Pfizer Laboratories Ltd. The formulations' comparative bioavailability after oral administration will be assessed based on the statistical comparisons of the relevant pharmacokinetic parameters, obtained from the drug concentrations in the blood. The lincomycin hydrocloride concentration will be measured by a proper and validated analytical method.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC [0-t]Area under the curve of concentration vs. time, from time 0 (zero) up to the time of the last observed concentration above the limit of quantification, calculated by the trapezium rules. [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
  • Cmax Maximum reached concentration, based on the experimental data, obtained directly from the curve concentration vs. time; [ Time Frame: 1 week ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC [0-¥]Area under the curve of drug concentration versus time, from time 0 (zero) extrapolated to the infinite, calculated as AUC [0-¥] = AUC [0-t] + Ct/Ke, in which Ct is the last concentration determined above the limit of [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
  • quantification. [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
  • Ke Terminal First Order Elimination Constant, estimated by the angular coefficient of the linear regression, calculated by the Least Square Method, from the natural logarithms of concentration vs. time to the last four values of concentration (or at [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
  • least three) above the limit of quantification. [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
  • T½ Half-life time, calculated as ln (2) / Ke. [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
  • Adverse events and vital signs. [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
