Study to Compare the Pharmacokinetics of IV Diclofenac Sodium (2 Doses)Versus Oral Diclofenac Potassium

2014-08-26 22:38:33 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to assess the pharmacokinetic parameters of intravenous diclofenac sodium (DIC075V) 18.75 mg and 37.5 mg following single- and multiple-dose administration, as compared to oral diclofenac potassium (Cataflam® 50 mg), the approved reference product.


This study is an open-label, three-treatment, six sequence, three-period, single center crossover study to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of intravenous diclofenac sodium DIC075V (18.75 mg and 37.5 mg) versus oral diclofenac potassium (Cataflam® 50 mg) in healthy adult volunteers following single- and multiple-dose administration. Each treatment sequence received 1 dose every 6 hours (for a total of 4 doses per treatment sequence) with a 48-hour washout period between treatment sequences.
