Clinical Details

Official title: An Open Label, Balanced, Randomized, Two-treatment, Four-period, Two-sequence, Single Oral Dose, Crossover, Fully Replicate Bioequivalence Study of Two Formulations of Valsartan 320 mg Tablet in Healthy, Adult, Human Subjects Under Fasting Condition

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Bio-equivalence Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Primary outcome: Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) and Peak Plasma Concentration (Cmax) of Valsartan

Detailed description: Tablet in healthy, adult human subjects under fasting condition, with a screening period of 28 days prior to dose administration in Period-I. In each study period, twenty-four (24) blood samples, including two (02) predose blood samples, each of 02 mL were collected from each subject except for the discontinued / withdrawn subjects to analyze the pharmacokinetic profile of the test as well as the reference product. The pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated from the drug concentration vs. time profile by non-compartmental model using WinNonlin Professional Software-Version 5. 3 (Pharsight Corporation, USA) for Valsartan. Statistical comparison of the pharmacokinetic parameters of the two formulations was carried out using PROC MIXED of SAS® Version 9. 3 (SAS Institute Inc., USA) to assess the bioequivalence of both the formulations.
