    ABSTRACT: Two bioequivalence studies of irbesartan (CAS 138402-11-6) and hydrochlorothiazide (CAS 58-93-5) combination at 300/12.5 mg and 300/25 mg strengths were carried out in order to assess the bioequivalence of these film-coated tablet formulations in comparison with the marketed reference formulations.Both studies were performed with 30 healthy volunteers according to an open label, randomized, 2-period, 2-sequence, crossover, single dose and fasting conditions design. In each study, test and reference formulations were administered in 2 treatment days, separated by a washout period of 7 days. Blood samples were drawn up to 72 h following drug administration in case of irbesartan and up to 24 h in case of hydrochlorothiazide. Plasma concentrations of both analytes were obtained by a validated HPLC method using MS/MS detection. Log-transformed AUC0-t and Cmax values were tested for bioequivalence based on the ratios of the geometric LSmeans (test/reference).For both studies, the 90% confidence intervals of the geometric LSmean values for the test/reference ratios for AUC0-t [(irbesartan: 300/12.5 mgstrength: 95.33-111.74%. 300/25 mg strength: 91.27-103.93%) (hydrochlorothiazide: 300/12.5 mg strength: 99.63-107.50%. 300/25 mg strength: 95.72-102.24%)] and Cmax [(irbesartan: 300/12.5 mg strength: 98.73-115.03%. 300/25 mg strength: 97.27-112.12%) (hydrochlorothiazide: 300/12.5 mg strength: 97.34-112.06%. 300/25 mg strength: 93.29-106.38%)] were within the bio-equivalence acceptance range of 80-125%.According to the European Guideline on the Investigation of Bioequivalence it may be therefore concluded that both test formulations are bioequivalent to the corresponding reference formulations. Overall, it was judged that both studies were conducted with a good tolerance of the subjects to study drugs.

    ABSTRACT: A bioequivalence study of 2 irbesartan (CAS 138402-11-6) film-coated tablet formulations was carried out in 40 healthy volunteers according to an open label, randomized, 2-period, 2-sequence, crossover, single dose and fasting conditions design. The test and reference formulations were administered in 2 treatment days, separated by a washout period of 7 days. Blood samples were drawn up to 96 h following drug administration. Plasma concentrations of irbesartan were obtained by a validated HPLC method using MS/MS detection. Log-transformed AUC0-t and Cmax values were tested for bioequivalence based on the ratios of the geometric LSmeans (test/reference). tmax was analysed nonparametrically. The 90% confidence intervals of the geometric LSmean values for the test/reference ratios for AUC0-t (98.06-109.48%, point estimator 103.61%) and Cmax (88.93-100.87%, point estimator 94.72%) were within the bioequivalence acceptance range of 80-125%. According to the European Guideline on the Investigation of Bioequivalence it may be therefore concluded that test formulation of irbesartan 300 mg film-coated tablet is bioequivalent to the reference formulation. Overall, it was judged that the study was conducted with a good tolerance of the subjects to both study drugs.

    ABSTRACT: The management of surgical bleeding during a face transplant in a patient diagnosed with bilateral neurofibromatosis is quite complex. With the actual methods and technology for hemostasis management, it may not always be possible to give the clinician the support needed to manage operative associated bleeding. Bedside hemostasis monitors are needed urgently to assist clinicians in making the correct diagnosis in a timely manner. Our Mobile Laboratory Unit is a disruptive solution for hemostasis management during major surgery as it allows real-time monitoring, the predominant mechanism of bleeding and goal-direct coagulation therapy. The unit is an autonomous mobile platform that can be moved immediately to anywhere its service is needed and offers a complete flexible laboratory test which includes biochemistry, hematology and coagulation studies as standard equipment. In our case the test performed by the unit allowed us to identify the reason for our patient's bleeding at the bedside. Severely decreased clot firmness of the fibrin-based clot and a less impaired firmness of the whole blood clot, suggested an acceptable contribution of platelets to the clot quality, but decreased polymerization of fibrinogen into fibrin. In our opinion new insights into the pathophysiology of coagulopathy, the availability of technology such as our Mobile Laboratory Unit, and awareness of side effects of intravenous fluids should encourage the idea that perhaps it is time to change hemostasis management in operation-related bleeding.

    ABSTRACT: A bioequivalence study of 2 zolmitriptan (CAS 139264-17-8) orodispersible tablet formulations was carried out in 26 healthy volunteers according to an open label, randomized, 2-period, 2-sequence, crossover, single dose and fasting conditions design. The test and reference formulations were administered in 2 treatment days, separated by a washout period of 7 days. Plasma concentrations of zolmitriptan and its active metabolite (N-desmethyl-zolmitriptan) were obtained by LC/MS/MS method. Log-transformed AUCs and Cmax values were tested for bioequivalence based on the ratios of the geometric means (test/reference). Tmax was analysed nonparametrically. The 90% confidence intervals of the geometric mean values for the test/reference ratios for AUC0-t and Cmax were within the bioequivalence acceptance range of 80-125%. According to the European Guideline 1 it may be therefore concluded that test formulation of zolmitriptan 5 mg orodispersible tablet is bioequivalent to the reference formulation.

    ABSTRACT: This study was designed to compare the rate and extent of absorption of 2 oral formulations of ondansetron (CAS 99614-02-5) 8 mg orodispersible tablets in healthy volunteers. 22 subjects were administered ondansetron orodispersible tablets of test and reference formulation in a single-dose, 2-period, 2-sequence, fasting, open-label, crossover and randomised study. Plasma concentrations were determined by LC/MS/MS. Log-transformed AUCs and Cmax values were tested for bioequivalence based on the ratios of the geometric means (test/reference). Tmax was analysed nonparametrically. The 90% confidence intervals of the geometric mean values for the test/reference ratios for AUC0-t and Cmax were within the bioequivalence acceptance range of 80-125%. According to the European Guideline [1] it may be therefore concluded that test formulation of ondansetron 8 mg orodispersible tablet is bioequivalent to the reference formulation.
