The objective of this study was to compare different methods of adjusted indirect comparisons that can be used to investigate the relative bioavailability of different generic products. To achieve this goal, generic artemether/lumefantrine 20/120 mg tablets that have been prequalified by the World Health Organization (WHO) were selected as model products(More)
Approval of generic medicines is based on bioequivalence with the innovator product, but it is not unusual for generics to be interchanged with each other. This study investigated the differences in bioavailability between World Health Organization-prequalified antituberculosis generics by means of indirect comparisons to ensure interchangeability between(More)
Adjusted indirect comparisons can be used to investigate bioequivalence between generic products that are bioequivalent with a common reference product. In previous work with generic tuberculosis medicines prequalified by the WHO, it was observed that although indirect comparisons are an effective approach for confirming the interchangeability of generics,(More)
The objective of the present work is to investigate the validity of the existing requirements for BCS biowaivers of immediate release products containing a class I drug in relation to the agitation rate (50 or 75 rpm in the paddle apparatus) and the time limit for complete dissolution (30 min) in the current biowaivers in vitro dissolution tests. Further,(More)
OBJECTIVE African potato (Hypoxis obtusa) is commonly used in Sub-Saharan Africa as a complementary herbal remedy for HIV-infected patients. It is unknown whether or not co-administration of African potato alters the pharmacokinetics of protease inhibitor antiretrovirals. The objective of this study was to investigate the impact of the African potato on the(More)
BACKGROUND The scaling-up of access to antiretroviral therapy, particularly in low- to middle-income countries, was facilitated by the introduction and widespread use of generic antiretroviral medicines and fixed-dose combinations. Generic medicines are approved by regulatory authorities based on the demonstration of bioequivalence with the innovator or(More)
Comparator products should be the products that were shown to be safe and efficacious in pivotal clinical trials to ensure prescribability of generics. The use of a common comparator ensures switchability between generics. The selection of the comparator is a national responsibility and may be different between countries. This paper discusses the current(More)
