  Purpose

A single dose, two treatments (two cephalexin capsules brands), two sequences, cross-over design was used with a washout of 7 days between the two study periods. Treatment groups balanced with the same number of healthy volunteers who were randomly (in two strata: male and female) assigned to the study drug administration sequences.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Least square estimator of average maximum plasmatic concentration (log transformed) [ Time Frame: After two months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Least square estimator of area under the pharmacokinetic curve (log transformed) [ Time Frame: After two months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time at which maximum concentration is reached [ Time Frame: After two months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Area under the pharmacokinetic curve from time=0 to last blood sample [ Time Frame: After two months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clearance constant of plasmatic concentration of study drug [ Time Frame: After two months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Half life of plasmatic concentration of study drug [ Time Frame: After two months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse events collection [ Time Frame: Up to six weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
