Bioavailability of Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets 15.0 mg/0.03 mg With Regards to Reference Product

2020-01-20 11:39:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This Pilot study will investigate the bioavailability in women of 2 tablet formulations containing Levonorgestrel 15.0 mg and Ethinyl estradiol 0.03 mg. The Pilot study will be performed at a single site with 15 subjects. Participants will take 2 tablets of the test product and reference product in 2 periods and 2 sequences (either test after reference or reference after test). There will be a washout of at least 14 days between each study period.

Description

The primary objective of the study is to investigate the relative bioavailability of Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl estradiol of 2 tablet formulations with Levonorgestrel 15.0 mg and Ethinyl estradiol 0.03 mg and to demonstrate bioequivalence of both formulations in terms of rate and extent of absorption:

- Test Product: Product manufactured by Laboratorios Andrómaco S.A.

- Reference Product: Microgynon [Trademark], product of Bayer AG, Germany. The 90% confidence intervals for the intra-subject coefficient of variation (Test versus Reference Product) for the main pharmacokinetic parameters área under the plasma concentration-time curve from time zero to time t (AUC0-t) and from time zero to 72 hours (AUC0-72), and maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) for total Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl estradiol will be determined.

Participants will be confined in the study site for approximately 36 hours during each study period (for 12 hours pre-dosing and for 24 hours post dosing) during which pharmacokinetic (PK) blood samples will be obtained. 16 blood samples will be taken up to 24 hours after the administration in each period. Participants will return to the site to provide additional blood samples at 48 h, and 72 h postdose.

The washout period between the two study periods will be at least 14 days. The samples from each participant will be analyzed with 2 methods of highperformance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry bioanalytical assays to quantify total Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl estradiol in plasma.

The safety objective is to evaluate the tolerability of both formulations in women by collecting adverse events.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

ETHINYL ESTRADIOL and NORGESTREL given in fixed proportions. It has proved to be an effective contraceptive (CONTRACEPTIVES, ORAL, COMBINED).

A semisynthetic alkylated ESTRADIOL with a 17-alpha-ethinyl substitution. It has high estrogenic potency when administered orally, and is often used as the estrogenic component in ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES.

The 3-cyclopentyl ether of ETHINYL ESTRADIOL. After gastrointestinal absorption, it is stored in ADIPOSE TISSUE, slowly released, and metabolized principally to the parent compound. It has been used in ESTROGEN REPLACEMENT THERAPY. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p1011)

The 3-methyl ether of ETHINYL ESTRADIOL. It must be demethylated to be biologically active. It is used as the estrogen component of many combination ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES.

Steroidal compounds related to ESTRADIOL, the major mammalian female sex hormone. Estradiol congeners include important estradiol precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with estrogenic activities.
