 Steady State Bioequivalence Study [Design Issues]

Hello All,

A case of Steady state bioequivalence study in which dose is administered twice daily from Day XX to Day XX. Suppose Day 01 to Day 07 where on day 07 only morning dose will be administered. My question is what is the ideal pre-dose time points required to collect to get Cpd. As per guideline, at least 3 pre-dose samples are required to collect. But as we are administrating Drug twice daily, its is necessary to collect pre-dose for morning and evening both for few days i.e Day 01 (morning evening), Day 04 (morning evening) and Day 07 (Morning)?

Also suggest for t.i.d. administration.

Appreciate your valuable suggestion in this regards.

 Pre-dose samples

Hi Pharma_88,

» A case of Steady state bioequivalence study in which dose is administered twice daily from Day XX to Day XX. Suppose Day 01 to Day 07 where on day 07 only morning dose will be administered.

This is only acceptable if you know that there are no circadian differences in PK. Otherwise, you have to administer both doses on day 7 as well and assess the complete 24 hours profile.

» As per guideline, at least 3 pre-dose samples are required to collect. But as we are administrating Drug twice daily, its is necessary to collect pre-dose for morning and evening both for few days i.e Day 01 (morning evening), Day 04 (morning evening) and Day 07 (Morning)?

The idea behind is to assess whether you reached (pseudo-) steady state.* Hence, pre-doses on the mornings of day 5, 6, 7.

» Also suggest for t.i.d. administration.

Similar.


  • At last month’s 4th workshop of the Global Bioequivalence Harmonization Initiative (GBHI) in Bethesda there was a consensus that no statistical test should be performed. Give a table of results, geometric means / CV, and plots.
