This study is planned to characterize the pharmacokinetic properties of oseltamivir and the active product--oseltamivir carboxylate--in obesity in order to provide clinical guidance for the optimum oseltamivir treatment regimens for severe influenza. It is also a prompt response to a new era influenza plan along with recognition of growing numbers of obese persons.
The study findings will be available for a future management plan in dealing with this virus that is transmitted easily from person to person and has shown substantial antigenic changes over time.
The primary focus of statistical analysis is to verify the effect of obesity on oseltamivir/oseltamivir carboxylate pharmacokinetics as measured by oseltamivir carboxylate Cmax, AUC (0-12), AUC (0-24), C12, λz, and t1/2 and oseltamivir Cmax, AUC (0-12), and C12.
This is an open-label, cross-over, randomized pharmacokinetic study conducted in approximately 12 obese and 12 non obese adult subjects at one study center in Thailand.
Subjects will receive 2 regimens in a random sequence for 2 visits.
1. Regimen A; 75 mg single dose.
2. Regimen B; 150 mg single dose. All dosing will be supervised and documented. Subjects will have 2 hospitalizations to complete visit 2 and visit 3 in their assigned sequence within each. Each visit will require hospitalization for about 40 hours (2 nights and 2 days). The subject will be randomized to receive either regimen A or B on first admission (visit 2). Treatment allocation will be performed using computer-generated list of random permutations of AB sequence.
Subjects who received regimen A will receive regimen B on second admission and vice versa, with more than 3 days wash out period in between. Subjects will return to the study centre for a follow-up visit 7-10 days after completing the last dosing assessments or withdrawing from the study. The total duration of study participation will be approximately 4 weeks from screening through follow-up.
Assessment of the safety profile will be done after each admission by the investigating team before proceeding to the other regimen.

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.
