Condition(s) targeted: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Intervention: Mercaptopurine 20mg/ml oral suspension (Drug); Mercaptopurine 50mg tablet (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Nova Laboratories Limited

Summary

The primary objective of this study is to determine whether the test product, mercaptopurine oral 100 mg/5 mL suspension, and the reference product, Purinethol® 50 mg tablets are bioequivalent. For this purpose the PK profile of 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) will be compared after administration of a single dose of each of the two formulations, under fasting conditions. The secondary objective is to assess the safety and tolerability of the test product, mercaptopurine oral 100 mg/5 mL suspension.
