Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cmax (maximum observed concentration of drug substance in plasma) [ Time Frame: Blood samples drawn over 60 hour time period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Bioequivalence based on Cmax

  • AUC0-t (area under the concentration-time curve from time zero to time of last measurable concentration) [ Time Frame: Blood samples drawn over 60 hour time period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Bioequivalence based on AUC0-t

  • AUC0-inf (area under the concentration-time curve from time zero to infinity) [ Time Frame: Blood samples drawn over 60 hour time period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Bioequivalence based on AUC0-inf
