Phase I Study to Evaluate Bioavailability of Overencapsulated Celecoxib
Phase I, Randomized, Open-Label, 2-Way Crossover Study to Evaluate Relative Bioavailability of Single Oral Dose of Celecoxib Administered as Marketed Product, or Overencapsulated Capsule in Healthy Volunteers
Phase I study designed to test the hypothesis that overencapsulated celecoxib 200 mg qd is bioequivalent to commercial celecoxib 200 mg qd. Approximately 90 healthy volunteers will be randomized to yield approximately 80 completers. The study is an open label, randomized, 2-way crossover with single dosing followed by a 7-day washout period between treatment arms
