    The purpose of this study is to investigate the eff ect of using truncated area under the curve AUC) method on the bioequivalence of different drugs in healthy volunt eers. Model drugs used clopidogrel, glimepiride, losartan , carvedilol, carbamazepine, diazepam, donepezil, tra madol and repaglinide. 24 – 38 healthy subjects participa ted in each study using cross over design. Individual disp osition kinetic parameters of areas under plasma concentrat ions (AUC 0-t , AUC 00 ), maximum concentration (C max ) and time to reach maximum concentration (T max ) were calculated by non-compartmental analysis using Kinetica progra m V 4.2 using all data points. In addition, truncated A UC was calculated up to median T max of reference product. No di- rect correlation was shown between study results du e to AUC truncation. The 90 % confidence intervals for l og- transformed AUC 0-t , AUC .. Read More»
