❝ Just wonder if multiple dose BE is required for omeprazole capsule?

Normally, Single dose fasting and fed studies are required.

❝ some sponsors did perform the multiple dose studies as shown in public assessment report.

Reason may be, omeprazole has time-dependent kinetics (omeprazole auto-inhibits its metabolism). Hence, according to Guidance on the investigation of Bioavailability and Bioequivalence, a steady state study is required due to this time dependency.
