    Blood samples were collected for determination of vibegron levels predose and at 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 216, and 336 hours after dosing.

  • Apparent Volume of Distribution During the Terminal Phase (Vd/F) After a Single Oral Dose of Vibegron 100 mg [ Time Frame: Predose and 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 216, and 336 hours postdose ]
    Blood samples were collected for determination of vibegron levels predose and at 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 216, and 336 hours after dosing.

  • Maximum Observed Plasma Drug Concentration (Cmax) After a Single Oral Dose of Vibegron 100 mg [ Time Frame: Predose and 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 216, and 336 hours postdose ]
    Blood samples were collected for determination of vibegron levels predose and at 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 216, and 336 hours after dosing.

  • Time to Maximum Observed Plasma Drug Concentration (Tmax) After a Single Oral Dose of Vibegron 100 mg [ Time Frame: Predose and 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 216, and 336 hours postdose ]
    Blood samples were collected for determination of vibegron levels predose and at 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 216, and 336 hours after dosing.

  • Apparent Terminal Half-life (t½) After a Single Oral Dose of Vibegron 100 mg [ Time Frame: Predose and 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 216, and 336 hours postdose ]
    Blood samples were collected for determination of vibegron levels predose and at 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 216, and 336 hours after dosing.
