ABSTRACT The bioequivalence of two oral formulations containing aceclofenac 100 mg was determined in 24 healthy Indian male volunteers. The study was designed as a single dose, fasting, two-period two-sequence crossover study with a washout period of 1 week. The content of aceclofenac in plasma was determined by a validated HPLC method with UV detection. The preparations were compared using the parameters area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC0-t), area under the plasma concentration-time curve from zero to infinity (AUC0-infinity), peak plasma concentration (Cmax), and time to reach peak plasma concentration (tmax). No statistically significant difference was observed between the logarithmic transformed AUC0-infinity and Cmax values of the two preparations. The 90% confidence interval for the ratio of the logarithmic transformed AUC0-t, AUC0-infinity, and Cmax were within the bioequivalence limit of 0.80-1.25.

    ABSTRACT: Background: Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) are observed to be great healer in gastroesophageal reflux disorder (GERD) and duodenal ulcer. Quantification of the drugs in human plasma by validated bioanalytical method are very important to determine pharmacokinetic parameters for undergoing comparative study with standard available formulations to make the newer one commercially available. Objective: The objective of this study was to determine the relative bioavailability of Ilaprazole, a novel PPI comparing the test formulation to the reference one according to standard regulatory guidelines. Materials and Methods: The bioequivalence of two tablet formulations, one as reference and other as test containing 10 mg of ilaprazole [CAS No. 172152-36-2] was studied in 12 healthy Indian volunteers. This was a single dose, twoperiod and randomized crossover study separated with a washout period of one week. Plasma samples for pharmacokinetic analysis were collected before dosing and at pre-specified time points after dosing. The concentration of ilaprazole in plasma was determined by a validated HPLC-UV method using theophylline as internal standard. The formulations were compared using the parameters Area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC 0-t ), Area under the plasma concentration-time curve from zero to infinity (AUC 0-͵), Peak plasma concentration (C max ), and time to reach peak plasma concentration (t max ). Results: Mean AUC 0-t of test and reference product were calculated to be 2627.793 ± 154.989 ng h ml−1 and 2555.905 ± 225.916 ng h ml−1 , with a C max of 347.459 ± 48.175 ng h ml−1 . While mean AUC 0-͵ of test and reference product were calculated to be 2733.334 ± 242.438 ng h ml−1 and 2728.716 ± 284.408 ng h ml−1 . Conclusion: The results of this investigation indicated no statistically significant differences between the logarithmic transformed AUC 0-͵ and C max values of the two preparations. The 90% confidence interval for the ratio of the logarithmic transformed AUC 0-t , AUC 0-͵ and C max were 2 within the bioequivalence limit of 80-125% and the relative bioavailability of test formulation was 102.81% to that of reference formulation. The results of this study in healthy human volunteers of 27.92 ± 5.12 yrs (average age), 171.28 ± 6.85 cm (average height) and 66.43 ± 5.21 kg (average weight) support the use of the 10 mg dose tablet newly formulated.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the analgesic effect, efficacy and safety of aceclofenac controlled release (CR) in patients with chronic knee osteoarthritis (OA). A total of 125 subjects with chronic knee OA were randomly divided into two groups: one group (n=62) was administered aceclofenac CR once daily and the other (n=63), aceclofenac immediate release (IR) twice a day for 4 weeks. A 100-mm visual analogue scale (VAS), Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) and range of motoin (ROM) were evaluated as the outcome measures. To evaluate the safety of the drug, adverse events, vital signs, physical examination findings, clinical laboratory values and electrocardiographic findings were evaluated. The VAS, KOOS and ROM were improved after 4 weeks of administration in both groups, but the differences between the two groups were not statistically significant. Significant differences between the two groups were not shown in the evaluation of the adverse events, vital sign, physical examination results, clinical laboratory values, and electrocardiography. The aceclofenac CR and aceclofenac IR were equally effective in patients with chronic knee OA and the clinical trial results didn't show any significant difference in safety. The new aceclofenac CR formulation was found to be effective and safe with the practical advantage of once daily administration.

    ABSTRACT: A stability-indicating reversed-phase LC method for analysis of aceclofenac and paracetamol in tablets and in microsphere formulations has been developed and validated. The mobile phase was 80:20 (v/v) methanol–phosphate buffer (10mM at pH2.5±0.02). UV detection was at 276nm. The method was linear over the concentration ranges 16–24 and 80–120μgmL−1 for aceclofenac and paracetamol, respectively, with recovery in the range 100.9–102.22%. The limits of detection and quantitation for ACF were 0.0369 and 0.1120μgmL−1, respectively; those for PCM were 0.0631 and 0.1911μgmL−1, respectively.
