Literature data are reviewed regarding the scientific advisability of allowing a waiver of in vivo bioequivalence (BE) testing for the approval of immediate release (IR) solid oral dosage forms containing either diclofenac potassium and diclofenac sodium. Within the biopharmaceutics classification system (BCS), diclofenac potassium and diclofenac sodium are(More)
Literature data are reviewed on the properties of acetaminophen (paracetamol) related to the biopharmaceutics classification system (BCS). According to the current BCS criteria, acetaminophen is BCS Class III compound. Differences in composition seldom, if ever, have an effect on the extent of absorption. However, some studies show differences in rate of(More)
Literature data relevant to the decision to allow a waiver of in vivo bioequivalence (BE) testing (biowaiver) for the approval of immediate release (IR) solid oral dosage forms containing aciclovir are reviewed. Aciclovir therapeutic use and therapeutic index, pharmacokinetic properties, data related to the possibility of excipient interactions and reported(More)
Pharmacokinetic parameters of ethynyl estradiol 3-sulfate (EE-3) and 17-sulfate (EE-17) were estimated. Each sulfate was administered orally and intravenously to five ovariectomized volunteer women. Blood samples were taken over a period of 24 h. Radioimmunoassay for free and sulfoconjugated ethynyl estradiol (EE) was performed. The analysis of the plasma(More)
A subcutaneously-implantable reservoir for the sustained release of nicotine is described. The device, dubbed INR for Implantable Nicotine Reservoir, is a small glass cup sealed with Silastic polymer. It releases 3.4 mg of nicotine per 24 hours. When implanted into moderately-sized female Sprague-Dawley rats it produces blood nicotine levels of 400-500(More)
Comparative studies were pursued to investigate the locomotor activity induced by phencyclidine hydrochloride in CD-1 male mice. Horizontal, vertical, and rotational activity counts were quantitated using an infrared beam animal activity monitor. Five doses (1.5, 2.5, 3.5, 5.0, and 10.0 mg/kg, i.p.) of phencyclidine were compared. At the 1.5 mg/kg dose, no(More)
A drug delivery system (DDS) consisting of a perforated microtube (polyimide, inside diameter = 1.8 mm, tube length = 20 mm, hole size = 0.15 mm) was characterized in vitro and in vivo for its usefulness for long-term release of hydrophilic drugs at a constant rate. Sodium fluorescein mixed with stearic acid was used as the model drug. The DDS was packed(More)
