Study Completion Date: October 2007
Primary Completion Date: September 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: NEORAL® Capsule 100 mg Drug: Cyclosporine Capsules USP (Modified) 100 mg
Subjects will be administered either Test Product or Reference Product with 240ml of water according to randomization schedule
Other Names:
  • Cyclosporine Capsule
  • Gengraf Capsule
  • Sandimmune Capsule
Experimental: Cyclosporine 100 mg Capsule Drug: Cyclosporine Capsules USP (Modified) 100 mg
Subjects will be administered either Test Product or Reference Product with 240ml of water according to randomization schedule
Other Names:
  • Cyclosporine Capsule
  • Gengraf Capsule
  • Sandimmune Capsule

Detailed Description:
Total 78 normal healthy adult male subjects will be enrolled in the study. Subjects will be administered either the Test or the Reference Product with 240 mL of water in each period as per the randomization schedule. Subjects will fast for at least 10 hours prior to High Fat Breakfast half an hour before administration of the study drug and for four (4) additional hours each, post dose during each study period. Standardized meals will be provided in each study period. Water will not be accessible to the subjects 1 hour Predose and 2 hours Post dose in each period. A total of 24 blood samples will be withdrawn for pharmacokinetic profiling. The whole blood concentrations of Cyclosporine will be measured by a validated LC/MS/MS analytical method. Ratio analysis will be performed for untransformed and log transformed pharmacokinetic parameters Cmax, AUC0-72, AUC0 inf. ANOVA will be performed on log transformed pharmacokinetic parameters Cmax, AUC0-72, AUC0-inf and 90% confidence interval will be constructed for the ratio of geometric least square mean of the Test and Reference products, obtained from the log-transformed data. Bioequivalence will be concluded if the ratio estimate as well as its 90% confidence interval, both falls within the acceptable range of 80.00% to 125.00% for Cmax, AUC0-72 and AUC0-inf.
