About

The aim of this study was to characterise the pharmacokinetic properties and assess the safety of different formulations of levosulpiride in healthy Chinese volunteers.

Full description

Levosulpiride was administered to 42 healthy male and female (1:1) subjects as tablet (orally) and injection (intramuscularly and intravenously) formulations. Blood samples were collected at regular intervals after single and multiple drug administration. The concentration of levosulpiride in plasma was determined using a validated high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method. Non-compartmental analysis was performed to estimate pharmacokinetic parameters. The analysis of variance was used to test for linearity and assess the effect of gender on the pharmacokinetic properties of the study drug. Adverse effects were monitored using investigators' questionnaires and subjects' spontaneous reports, vital sign measurements, hematology, clinical chemistry, and electrocardiogram.

42 participants in 2 patient groups

part 1
Experimental group
Description:
12 subjects successively received a single dose of levosulpiride tablets 25, 50, or 100 mg via oral administration and 50-mg of levosulpiride tablets 3 times a day for 7 days.
Treatment:
Drug: Levosulpiride
part 2
Experimental group
Description:
30 subjects were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 treatment groups (25, 50, or 75 mg) via i.m. administration, the 50-mg group subjects also received levosulpiride by i.v. route and repeated administration by i.m. route (twice a day for 3 days).
