Bioequivalence Studies in Drug Development: Methods and by Dieter Hauschke

By Dieter Hauschke

Stories in bioequivalence are the generally authorized way to exhibit healing equivalence among medicinal items. reductions in time and value are large whilst utilizing bioequivalence as a longtime surrogate marker of healing equivalence. for that reason the layout, functionality and review of bioequivalence reviews have acquired significant realization from academia, the pharmaceutical and well-being professionals.

Bioequivalence stories in Drug Development makes a speciality of the making plans, engaging in, analysing and reporting of bioequivalence reviews, overlaying all points required via regulatory experts. this article offers the mandatory statistical tools, and with an excellent functional emphasis, demonstrates their functions via a number of examples utilizing genuine info from drug improvement.

  • Includes all of the priceless pharmacokinetic history details.
  • Presents parametric and nonparametric statistical recommendations.
  • Describes sufficient equipment for strength and pattern measurement choice.
  • Includes acceptable presentation of effects from bioequivalence reviews.
  • Provides a pragmatic review of the layout and research of bioequivalence stories.
  • Presents the new advancements in method, together with inhabitants and person bioequivalence.
  • Reviews the regulatory instructions for such stories, and the prevailing international discrepancies.
  • Discusses the designs and analyses of drug-drug and food-drug interplay reports.

Bioequivalence stories in Drug Development is written in an available type that makes it perfect for pharmaceutical scientists, medical pharmacologists, and scientific practitioners, in addition to biometricians operating within the pharmaceutical undefined. it is going to even be of significant worth for execs from regulatory our bodies assessing bioequivalence studies.Content:

A two-sided 1 − 100 % confidence interval for the difference in the expected means, T − R , can be calculated as follows ⎡ ⎤ ⎣Y T − Y R − t1− /2 n1 +n2 −2 1 1 + Y − Y R + t1− n1 n2 T ˆ /2 n1 +n2 −2 ˆ 1 1 ⎦ + n 1 n2 where t1− /2 n1 +n2 −2 is the 1 − /2 quantile of the central Student’s t-distribution with n1 + n2 − 2 degrees of freedom, Y T = ˆ T and Y R = ˆ R denote the corresponding sample means and ˆ2= 1 n1 + n2 − 2 n1 YTj − Y T 2 + j=1 n2 YRj − Y R 2 j=1 is the pooled estimator of 2 .

On the basis of data from 20 bioequivalence studies they came up with the rather subtle recommendation that for drugs with short (<5 hours) elimination half-lives or fastest disposition half-lives in the case of higher compartmental models, Cmax /AUC is the best rate characteristic, but that for drugs with long elimination or fastest disposition half-lives, tmax can be superior to Cmax /AUC. With regard to partial areas, the following two concepts are of interest. The partial area under the curve from zero to tmax of the reference formulation is denoted by AUCR ; the partial area from zero to tmax of the test or reference formulation, whichever occurs earliest, is denoted by AUCe .

3 Overview of the most common pharmacokinetic characteristics (metrics) to assess the shape of concentration-time curves, which directly or indirectly reflect the rate of absorption in single- and multiple-dose bioequivalence studies. Differentiated for immediate and controlled (prolonged) release formulations, square brackets indicate limited suitability in the respective situation. 4 Conclusions The area under the concentration-time curve AUC is universally accepted as characteristic of the extent of drug absorption, that is, of total drug exposure.
