The objective of this study is to compare the rate and extent of absorption of a test formulation of oxcarbazepine tablets and Trileptal® tablets administered as a 1 x 600 mg dose under fed conditions.
Endpoint Classification: Bio-equivalence Study
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Open Label
||Randomized, Open-Label, 2-Way Crossover, Bioequivalence Study of Oxcarbazepine 600 mg Tablet and Trileptal® Following a 600 mg Dose in Healthy Subjects Under Fed Conditions
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Cmax - Maximum Observed Concentration - Oxcarbazepine in Plasma [ Time Frame: Blood samples collected over 48 hour period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- AUC0-inf - Area Under the Concentration-time Curve From Time Zero to Infinity (Extrapolated) - Oxcarbazepine [ Time Frame: Blood samples collected over 48 hour period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- AUC0-t - Area Under the Concentration-time Curve From Time Zero to Time of Last Non-zero Concentration (Per Participant) - Oxcarbazepine [ Time Frame: Blood samples collected over 48 hour period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Cmax - 10-hydroxy-carbazepine in Plasma [ Time Frame: Blood samples collected over 48 hour period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- AUC0-inf - 10-Hydroxy-Carbazepine Metabolite [ Time Frame: Blood samples collected over 48 hour period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- AUC0-t - 10-Hydroxy-Carbazepine Metabolite [ Time Frame: Blood samples collected over 48 hour period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

- Any clinically significant abnormality or abnormal laboratory test results found during medical screening.
- Any reason which, in the opinion of the medical subinvestigator, would prevent the subject from participating in the study.
- Positive testing for hepatitis B, hepatitis C or HIV at screening.
- ECG abnormalities (clinically significant) or vital sign abnormalities (systolic blood pressure lower than 90 or over 140 mmHg, or diastolic blood pressure lower than 50 or over 90mmHg; or heart rate less than 50 or over 100 bpm) at screening.
- History of significant alcohol abuse or drug abuse within one year prior to the screening visit.
- Regular use of alcohol within six months prior to the screening visit (more than 14 units of alcohol per [1 Unit = 150 mL of wine or 360 mL of beer or 45 mL of 40% alcohol], or positive alcohol breath test at screening.

- History of allergic reactions to heparin, oxcarbazepine, carbamazepine, or other related drugs.
- Use of any drugs known to induce or inhibit hepatic drug metabolism (examples of inducers: barbiturates, carbamazepine, phenytoin, glucocorticoids, omeprazole; examples of inhibitors: antidepressants (SSRI), cimetidine, diltiazem, macrolides, imidazoles, neuroleptics, verapamil, fluoroquinolones, antihistamines) within 30 days prior to the administration of the study medication.
- Use of an investigational drug or participation on an investigation study within 30 days prior to dosing.
- Clinically significant history or presence of any gastrointestinal pathology (e.g. chronic diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease), unresolved gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g. diarrhea, vomiting), liver or kidney disease, or other conditions known to interfere with the absorption, distribution, metabolism, or excretion of the drug.
- Any clinically significant history or presence or neurological, endocrinal, cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematologic, immunologic, psychiatric, or metabolic disease.
