To Test Bioequivalence Between Two Formulations of Paracetamol/Phenylephrine

2014-08-27 03:14:06 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is designed to assess bioequivalence between two paracetamol/ phenylephrine combination products.

Description

The study will be a single dose, randomized, two-way crossover study in 40 healthy subjects, with equal numbers of males and females. Drop-outs will not be replaced. The two doses of medication given in the study (a single dose in each of the two study periods) will be separated by a washout period of at least 7 days. In each study period, sixteen blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis will be taken over 24 hours. Blood samples will be centrifuged and concentrations of paracetamol and phenylephrine in plasma will be measured using a validated chromatographic assay. Pharmacokinetic parameters will be calculated from plasma concentration data. The rate and extent of absorption of the formulations will be compared.

Population pharmacokinetic modelling of intravenous paracetamol in fit older people displays extensive unexplained variability.

Paracetamol is the analgesic most used by older people. The physiological changes occurring with ageing influence the pharmacokinetics (PK) of paracetamol and its variability. We performed a populatio...

An insight into paracetamol and its metabolites using molecular docking and molecular dynamics simulation.

Paracetamol is a relatively safe analgesia/antipyretic drug without the risks of addiction, dependence, tolerance, and withdrawal when used alone. However, when administrated in an opioid/paracetamol ...

Phenylephrine, a common cold remedy active ingredient, suppresses uterine contractions through cAMP signalling.

Regulation of uterine contractility is an important aspect of women's health. Phenylephrine, a selective agonist of the α-adrenoceptor and a potent smooth muscle constrictor, is widely used in women ...

Assessing the accuracy of intracameral phenylephrine preparation in cataract surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A deep blue dye (with the formula OC6H4NC6H4OH) used to detect AMMONIA in a common test called the Berthelot's reaction and to detect PARACETAMOL by spectrophotometry.

An alpha-adrenergic agonist used as a mydriatic, nasal decongestant, and cardiotonic agent.

Sympathetic alpha-adrenergic agonist with actions like PHENYLEPHRINE. It is used as a vasoconstrictor in circulatory failure, asthma, nasal congestion, and glaucoma.

An alpha-adrenergic blocking agent that is used in Raynaud's disease. It is also used locally in the eye to reverse the mydriasis caused by phenylephrine and other sympathomimetic agents. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1312)

A subclass of alpha-adrenergic receptors (RECEPTORS, ADRENERGIC, ALPHA). alpha-1 Adrenergic receptors can be pharmacologically discriminated, e.g., by their high affinity for the agonist phenylephrine and the antagonist prazosin. They are widespread, with clinically important concentrations in the liver, the heart, vascular, intestinal, and genitourinary smooth muscle, and the central and peripheral nervous systems.
