  • Part 1: Urinary Excretion of Alendronate [ Time Frame: Day 1-2 across the 36 hour urinary collection period (Periods 1 and 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Bioequivalence was demonstrated by measuring the total urinary excretion of alendronate which was determined over a 36-hour period following single dose administration of 70-mg alendronate+5600 International Units (IU) vitamin D combination tablet and 70mg alendronate tablet alone. Urine for each treatment period was collected at -2 to 0 hours predose, 0 to 8, 8 to 24, and 24 to 36 hours postdose on Days 1 and 2.
  • Part II: AUC (Area Under the Plasma Concentration-time Curve) of Vitamin D [ Time Frame: Day 1 across the 80-hour plasma collection period (Period 1 and 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The serum vitamin D pharmacokinetic parameter was calculated following the treatment of 70mg alendronate+5600 IU vitamin D combination tablet and 5600 IU vitamin D tablet on Day 1: area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC0-80hr). Serum samples for determination of vitamin D concentrations were obtained at -2 and 0 hrs predose on Day 1 and at 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 16, 24, 36, 48, 72 and 80 hours post dose for each treatment period.
Part 1: Compare the urinary excretion of alendronate with alendronate/vitamin D combination tablet relative to alendronate tablet. Part 2: compare the pharmacokinetic parameter, AUC, of vitamin D in combination tablet relative to vitamin D tablet. [ Time Frame: Approximately 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Part II : Maximum Concentration (Cmax) of Vitamin D [ Time Frame: Day 1 across the 80-hour plasma collection period (Periods 1 and 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Serum vitamin D pharmacokinetic parameter was calculated for the following: maximum concentration of drug observed in serum (Cmax). Serum samples for determination of vitamin D concentrations were obtained at -2 and 0 hrs predose on Day 1 and at 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 16, 24, 36, 48, 72 and 80 hours post dose for each treatment period.
Compare the pharmacokinetic parameter, Cmax, of vitamin D in combination tablet relative to vitamin D tablet. [ Time Frame: Approximately 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

A Study of the Bioequivalence of 70-mg Alendronate and 70-mg Alendronate in Combination With 5600 IU Vitamin D (MK0217A-253)(COMPLETED)
A 2-Part, Open-Label, Randomized, Crossover Study to Evaluate the Bioequivalence of the 70-mg Alendronate/5600 IU Vitamin D3 Final Market Combination Tablet to a 70-mg Alendronate Marketed Tablet, and the Relative Bioavailability of Vitamin D3

This study will evaluate the bioequivalence of alendronate in combination with vitamin D compared to alendronate alone and the bioequivalence of vitamin D in combination with alendronate compared to vitamin D alone.

This was an open-label, randomized, 2-part, crossover study. Each participant participated in one part of the study only (i.e., each participant participated only in Part I or only in Part II). Participants entered the study sequentially within each part of the study. A washout of at least 12 days separated each treatment period within each part of the study.

  • Drug: alendronate sodium+vitamin D combination
    A single dose tablet of 70mg alendronate sodium+5600 IU vitamin D combination tablet in one treatment period of each sequence.
  • Drug: Comparator: alendronate
    A single dose tablet of 70mg alendronate in one treatment period of each sequence.
  • Dietary Supplement: Comparator: Vitamin D
    Two tablets of 2800 IU vitamin D, totaling 5600 IU, in one treatment period of each sequence.
  • Experimental: Sequence 1- alendronate+vitamin D combination then alendronate
    Participants in Part 1 received 70mg alendronate+5600 International Units (IU) vitamin D combination tablet in Period 1 followed by 70mg alendronate tablet in Period 2. A washout of at least 12 days separated each treatment period.
