Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Drug Concentration During the Selected Dosing Interval (Cmax) After a Single Dose [ Time Frame: Pre-dose (two samples collected within a period of 1 hour) and 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 12.0, 16.0, 24.0, 48.0, 72.0 and 96.0 hours post-dose in each treatment period ]
    Plasma samples for pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis were drawn at indicated time points of each treatment period. The Cmax was taken directly from the plasma concentration-time profile of individual participants

  • Time to Maximum Concentration (T-max) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose (two samples collected within a period of 1 hour) and 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 12.0, 16.0, 24.0, 48.0, 72.0 and 96.0 hours post-dose in each treatment period ]
    Plasma samples for PK analysis were drawn at indicated time points of each treatment period. The Tmax was taken directly from the plasma concentration-time profile of individual participants. Plasma samples for PK analysis were drawn at indicated time points.

  • The Area Under the Plasma Concentration Versus Time Curve (AUC) After a Single Dose [ Time Frame: Pre-dose (two samples collected within a period of 1 hour) and 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 12.0, 16.0, 24.0, 48.0, 72.0 and 96.0 hours post-dose in each treatment period ]
    Plasma samples for PK analysis were drawn at indicated time points of each treatment period. AUC(0-t) was area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time of administration until the time of last quantifiable concentration. The area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC0-infinity), was estimated by linear trapezoidal rule and was sum of the AUC0-t and extrapolated to infinity by dividing the estimated last measurable plasma concentration by elimination rate constant lambda z. Where lambda z is the terminal phase rate constant estimated by linear regression analysis of the log transformed concentration-time data after each single dose. The AUC0-infinity was the sum of the estimated and extrapolated parts.

  • The Percentage of Area Under Curve Extrapolated to Arrive at AUC0-infinity (AUCpercentage [%]_Extrap [Residual Area]) After a Single Dose [ Time Frame: Pre-dose (two samples collected within a period of 1 hour) and 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 12.0, 16.0, 24.0, 48.0, 72.0 and 96.0 hours post-dose in each treatment period ]
    Plasma samples for PK analysis were drawn at indicated time points of each treatment period. The percentage of area under curve extrapolated to arrive at AUC0-infinity (AUC%_Extrap [residual area]) was determined by AUC0-infinity minus AUC0-t divided by AUC0-infinity multiplied by 100.

  • Elimination Rate Constant (Kel) After a Single Dose [ Time Frame: Pre-dose (two samples collected within a period of 1 hour) and 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 12.0, 16.0, 24.0, 48.0, 72.0 and 96.0 hours post-dose in each treatment period ]
    Plasma samples for PK analysis were drawn at indicated time points of each treatment period. The apparent first-order elimination or terminal rate constant was calculated from a semilogarithmic plot of the plasma concentration versus time. The parameter was calculated by linear least-square regression analysis using the last three (or more) non-zero plasma concentrations.

  • Elimination Half Life (T-half) After a Single Dose [ Time Frame: Pre-dose (two samples collected within a period of 1 hour) and 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 12.0, 16.0, 24.0, 48.0, 72.0 and 96.0 hours post-dose in each treatment period ]
    The T-half was calculated using the following formula by dividing 0.693 (natural logarithm of 2) with lambda z, where lambda z is the terminal phase rate constant estimated by linear regression analysis of the log transformed concentration-time data after each single dose.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events (AE) and Serious Adverse Events (SAE) [ Time Frame: Up to 20 days ]
    An AE was defined as any untoward medical occurrence (MO) in a participant temporally associated with the use of a pharmaceutical product, whether or not considered related to the pharmaceutical product and can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with its use. The SAE was any untoward MO that, at any dose, results in death, life threatening, persistent or significant disability/incapacity, results in or prolongs inpatient hospitalization, congenital abnormality or birth defect, is medically important event or reaction, is associated with liver injury Alanine amino transferase (more than equal to [>=] 3 fold upper normal of limit [ULN]) or total bilirubin (>=2 fold ULN) or international normalization ratio more than 1.5. Refer to the general AE/SAE module for a list of AEs and SAEs.
