Official Title: Relative Bioavailability of Bromhexine for Oral Administration of 16 mg of Bromhexine Hydrochloride Granules Compared to 16 mg of Bromhexine Hydrochloride Syrup in Healthy Male and Female Volunteers (an Open-label, Randomised, Single-dose, Replicate Design Phase I Study With Two Treatments in Four Crossover Periods)

Further study details as provided by Boehringer Ingelheim:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC0-tz (area under the plasma concentration-time curve of the analyte in plasma over the time interval from 0 to the time of the last quantifiable data point) [ Time Frame: 48 h ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Cmax (maximum measured concentration of the analyte in plasma) [ Time Frame: 48 h ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC0-infinity (area under the concentration-time curve of the analyte in plasma over the time interval from 0 to infinity) [ Time Frame: 48 h ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
