Oral Bioavailability of Bilastine

2014-08-27 03:13:40 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to assess the absolute bioavailability of an oral bilastine formulation (test drug) compared to the endovenous administration of an IV bilastine formulation (control drug) in healthy volunteers.


Single centre, open label, cross-over, randomised, controlled, single dose study. The primary endpoint is the determination of plasma concentrations versus time (17 samples per subject at various time intervals after dosing) in order to assess the oral bioavailability of bilastine in healthy volunteers. Therefore the primary pharmacokinetic variable will be the area under the plasma concentration versus time curve from time zero to infinity (AUC 0-∞). Additionally the following pharmacokinetic variables will also be assessed: Cmax, AUC 0-t, tmax, Ae, Clr, t1/2. Additional objectives are to describe the safety and tolerability of a single administration of oral and endovenous bilastine in healthy volunteers.

Twelve healthy volunteers will be included. Each volunteer will take in random order one single dose of 20 mg oral bilastine and 10 mg IV bilastine with a minimum washout period of 14 days between them.

Bilastine plasma concentrations will be measured using a liquid chromatography/mass mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) micro method

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.

Process of evaluating the health of a patient and determining if they are healthy enough for surgery.

Dietary patterns which have been found to be important in reducing disease risk.
