Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: After dosing at time points 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 48 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The highest concentration of drug in plasma after a dose. Measured to evaluate the bioequivalence of the two dosing methods

  • Area Under the Concentration Time Curve From Zero to t. (AUC 0-t) [ Time Frame: After dosing at time points 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 48 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The area under the plasma concentration versus time curve from zero to the last measurable plasma concentration as calculated by the linear trapezoidal method. Calculated to determine whether the 2 methods of administration are bioequivalent.

  • The Area Under the Plasma Concentration Versus Time Curve From Time Zero to Infinity. (AUC Inf) [ Time Frame: After dosing at time points 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 48 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUC inf is calculated as the sum of the AUC 0-t plus the ratio of the last measurable plasma concentration to the elimination rate constant.It is calculated to evaluate the bioequivalence of the two dosing methods

Detailed Description:

Prior studies have shown that intact quinine sulfate capsules can be taken without regard for food. This is an open label randomized single dose two-way crossover study to compare the bioavailability of a single oral dose of quinine sulfate 648mg(2 x 324 mg capsules) when opened and mixed with 120 ml of chocolate pudding relative to the same dose given as two intact capsules. Eighteen healthy adult subjects will be enrolled. Following a fast of at least 10 hours subjects will be randomized to receive either 648 mg of quinine sulfate as the intact capsules or opened mixed in 120ml of chocolate pudding. Following a washout period of at least 7 days all subjects will be given the alternate dose under similar conditions. Following each dose, blood samples will be collected at times sufficient to determine the difference in bioavailability (if any) between the two methods of drug administration. In addition patients will be monitored for any adverse events including Electrocardiogram (EKG) changes (at baseline and 4 hours after each dose).
