Dear Priyanka,

» Is there any fixed range of BMI (body mass index) for Bio equivalence studies conducted for USFDA submissions

No, neither in the currently applicable guideline, nor in the drafts for ANDA and NDA/IND.

The ANDA drafts even states that

In vivo BE study subjects should be representative of the general population, taking into account age, sex and race (lines135-136)


We also recommend that any restrictions on admission into a study be based primarily on safety considerations (lines 150-151).
