Clinical Details

Official title: Single-Dose Fed Bioequivalence Study of Divalproex Sodium Delayed-Release Tablets (500 mg; Mylan) and Depakote Tablets (500 mg; Abbott) in Healthy Adult Male And Female (Not of Childbearing Potential) Volunteers

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

Acute illness at the time of either the pre-study medical evaluation or dosing. 3. All laboratory values reflecting hepatic function must be with in 10% of the upper range of normal in order to be considered not clinically significant. 5. Subjects who have known urea cycle disorders which are a group of uncommon genetic abnormalities (e. g. ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency). 6. Donation or loss of a significant volume of blood or plasma (> 450 mL) within 28 days prior to the initial dose of study medication. 7. Subjects who have received an investigational drug within 30 days prior to the initial dose of study medication. 8. Allergy or hypersensitivity to Divalproex Sodium or any related products. 9.
