About

The objective of the study is to compare the bioequivalence of a New Paracetamol Oral Suspension 24 milligram/milliliter (mg/ml) with that of an already approved Paracetamol (24 mg/ml) Oral Suspension (Panadol Baby & Infant) when administered to healthy volunteers under fasting condition. Pharmacokinetic parameters will be calculated from plasma concentration data. The rate and extent of absorption of the formulations will be compared.

Full description

This will be a 2-arm, single center, single dose, open-label, randomized, two-sequence, two period crossover, bioequivalence study in healthy adult participants. Participants will be screened for eligibility within 15 days prior to dosing. Participants will receive each of the two study treatments in fasted state during a 6-day (5-overnight stay) residential period at the study site. Participants will receive both treatment regimens in a randomized order with a 72-hour washout period between each dose. During each treatment period, a total of 21 blood samples will be collected which will include a pre-dose blood sample 1 hour before dosing and 20 post-dose blood samples at 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, 90, 120, 150, 180 minutes, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 hours, for bioanalytical analyses of paracetamol.

  • Diagnosis of long QT syndrome or QTc > 450 msec for males and > 470 msec for females at screening.
  • A participant with evidence or history of clinically significant laboratory abnormality, hematological, renal, endocrine, pulmonary, cardiovascular, hepatic, psychiatric, neurologic, or allergic disease within the last 5 years that may increase the risk associated with study participation.

Any surgical or medical condition which may significantly alter the absorption, distribution, metabolism or excretion of any drug substance but not limited to any of the following:

  • History of major gastrointestinal tract surgery such as gastrectomy, gastroenterostomy, bowel resection, gastric bypass, gastric stapling or gastric banding (note: this is not applicable for minor abdominal surgery without significant tissue resection, e.g., appendectomy and herniorrhaphy)
