Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to determine bioequivalence between two different formulations of lamotrigine extended release tablets (one reference product and one generic product) in a healthy adult population, following a single oral dose under fed conditions.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Drug: Lamotrigine Extended Release Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a single center, randomized, open-label, single dose, two treatment, four-period, two-sequence, fully replicated crossover design in the fed state.

The study will include two treatments:

  • Treatment-A: One dose of Lamotrigine extended-release tablet (Test) administered in the morning after a 10-hour overnight fast and 30 minutes after the start of a high-fat, high-calorie breakfast.
  • Treatment-B: One dose of Lamictal XR extended-release tablet (Reference) administered in the morning after a 10 hour overnight fast and 30 minutes after the start of a high-fat, high-calorie breakfast.

A total of 30 healthy subjects will be dosed to ensure that at least 24 subjects will complete the 4-period replicate design. For each treatment period, subjects will be confined from the day prior to dosing until approximately 48 hours post-dose. Subjects will return to the clinical site for the remaining blood samples. There will be a minimum 14-day washout between doses.

Subject participation from the Screening Visit to the Follow-Up Visit will be approximately 71 days.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area Under the Lamotrigine Concentration vs. time curve from sample time point 0 hour to sample time point 144 hour. [ Time Frame: 144 hours ]
  2. AUC 0-Inf [ Time Frame: 144 hours ]
    Area Under the Lamotrigine Concentrations vs. time curve from sample time point 0 hour to sample time point 144hours plus extrapolation to infinity of the terminal concentration slope.

  3. Cmax [ Time Frame: 2 to 144 hours ]
    The maximum concentration in the Lamotrigine concentrations vs. time curves for each subject and each treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Screening to 55 days after the first dose ]
    Recording of all adverse events (AE) occurring during the study: expected, unexpected and serious (SAE) from tree different sources. The AEs may be clinical occurrences, abnormal labs or ECG alterations.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Tmax [ Time Frame: 2 to 144 hours ]
    Time from 0 concentration sample point to the Cmax sample point.

  2. λZ [ Time Frame: 2 to 144 hours ]
    Apparent elimination rate constant, estimated by linear regression of the terminal linear portion of the log concentration versus time curve

  3. Thalf [ Time Frame: 2 to 144 hours ]
    It is the terminal elimination half-life, calculated as ln(2)/λZ.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 50 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Healthy male or female subjects ≥18 to ≤50 years of age
  2. Subject is willing and able to provide informed consent
  3. Body mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 18.00 kg/m2 and below 30.00 kg/m2 at screening
  4. Body weight greater than or equal to 49 kg at screening
  5. Subject is a non-smoker and has not used any nicotine containing products within 6 months prior to screening
  6. Subjects who are considered generally healthy upon completion of medical history, physical examination, vital signs, screening laboratory results and screening ECG in the opinion of the Investigator
  7. Subjects who are willing and able to comply with the visit schedule, laboratory tests, pharmacokinetic sampling schedule and other study procedures
  8. Subjects who are willing and able to maintain their eligibility throughout the study.
  9. A female study subject must meet one of the following criteria:

    • If of childbearing potential - agrees to use one of the accepted contraceptive regimens from at least 30 days prior to the first administration of the study medication, during the study, and for at least 30 days after the last dose of the study medication. An acceptable method of contraception includes one of the following:

      • Abstinence from heterosexual intercourse
      • Progestogen-containing hormonal contraceptives (birth control pills, injectable/implant/insertable hormonal birth control products, transdermal patch)
      • Intrauterine device (without hormones)
