 Bioequivalence for Parenteral Products [Regulatives / Guidelines]

Dear Helmut,

I am interested in finding out if bioequivalence study is needed in the US when an IV formulation is changed to a subcutaneous formulation. I would also appreciate if you can please give me references to US FDA Guidance document that addresses this topic. Thank you very much.

Regards,
Ani

 T = EV ∧ R = IV ¬ BE (→ absolute BA)

Hi Ani,

That’s not BE but absolute bioavailability.

Contrary to IV, in SC you have an absorption site. Hence, calling that a “formulation change” is an euphemism. The NDA/IND guidance is a starter.
