Pharmacokinetic and Tolerance Study of Meloxicam Eye Drops in Healthy Volunteers

2020-03-29 04:04:41 | BioPortfolio


The pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of meloxicam eye drops in Chinese healthy volunteers were evaluated to provide a basis for the formulation of a phase II clinical trial dosing regimen for this product. Including pre-tests and formal trials, formal trials include single-dose pharmacokinetics tests and multiple-dose tolerance tests (4 times a day for 3 consecutive days).


Meloxicam eye drops is a new class 2 drug of the country. The main ingredients are meloxicam. The other ingredients are hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin, sodium hydroxide, boric acid, sodium chloride and water for injection. Among them, hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin can increase the solubility of meloxicam and improve the stability of the solution. The indication of meloxicam eye drops is non-infectious ocular inflammation, especially for inflammation and complications after cataract surgery. The possible adverse reaction is transient tingling in the eye after eye drops.

Meloxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDS) that selectively inhibits COX-2 cyclooxygenase. It is currently widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic inflammation and pain, and its mechanism of action is to prevent the production of prostaglandins (PGs) that cause inflammation by inhibiting cyclooxygenase (COX). Non-infectious ocular inflammation is usually caused by the synthesis and release of inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandin (PG) after eye tissues are stimulated. Because non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and analgesic effects, and have no adverse effects of glucocorticoids, their application in ophthalmology has been valued.

Persons with no known significant health problems who are recruited to participate in research to test a new drug, device, or intervention as controls for a patient group. (from, accessed 2/14/2013)

Hospital or other institutional ethics committees established to consider the ethical dimensions of patient care. Distinguish from ETHICS COMMITTEES, RESEARCH, which are established to monitor the welfare of patients or healthy volunteers participating in research studies.

Human experimentation that is not intended to benefit the subjects on whom it is performed. Phase I drug studies (CLINICAL TRIALS, PHASE I AS TOPIC) and research involving healthy volunteers are examples of nontherapeutic human experimentation.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.
