Study Comparing Bioavailability of 3 New Formulations of Premarin/MPA With Premarin/MPA (PREMPRO) Reference Formulation
This study will compare the bioavailabity of three new investigational combination formulations of Premarin and medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) with a currently marketed formulation of Premarin and MPA, Prempro™. Prempro™ is indicated for use after menopause in women with a uterus to reduce moderate to severe hot flashes; to treat moderate to severe dryness, itching, and burning, in and around the vagina; and to help reduce your chances of getting osteoporosis (thin weak bones). The purpose of this study is to determine if these new formulations of Premarin/MPA provide the same levels of estrogen and MPA in the blood as Prempro in healthy postmenopausal women.

|Official Title:||An Open-Label, Single-Dose, Randomized, 4-Period, Crossover, Bioavailability Study Among 3 New Formulations of Premarin 0.625 mg/Medroxyprogesterone Acetate (Mpa) 2.5 mg Compared With a Reference Formulation of Premarin/Mpa (Prempro) 0.625 mg/2.5 mg in Healthy Postmenopausal Women|
- Pharmacokinetic blood samples for unconjugated and total (unconjugated plus conjugated) estrogens and MPA will be obtained. The following pharmacokinetic parameters will be determined: Cmax, Tmax, t½, AUC0-T, AUC0-¥.
