BACKGROUND Azithromycin is related to erythromycin but is more active against gram-negative bacteria and less active against streptococci and staphylococci compared with erythromycin. For these reasons, and because of convenience of dosing (QD for 3 days), azithromycin is widely used in Mexico. Although several generic formulations of azithromycin are available in Mexico, information concerning the bioavailability of each formulation in the Mexican population is not available. OBJECTIVE The… Expand
Bioavailability of two oral suspension and two oral tablet formulations of acyclovir 400 mg: two single-dose, open-label, randomized, two-period crossover comparisons in healthy Mexican adult subjects.
TLDR
The aim of these 2 studies was to compare the bioavailability of 4 oral formulations of acyclovir 400 mg--2 tablet formulations and 2 suspension formulations--with their corresponding listed drug references in Mexico (a list issued by Mexican Health Authorities). Expand
Bioavailability and pharmacokinetic comparison between generic and branded azithromycin capsule: a randomized, double-blind, 2-way crossover in healthy male Thai volunteers.
TLDR
In this small study in a selected population of healthy male Thai volunteers, the C(max) and AUC were not statistically significantly different between generic and branded formulations of a single, 2 x 250-mg dose of azithromycin capsules, and the generic andbranded formulations were found to be bioequivalent.

Bioequivalence of Two Formulations of a Single Oral Dose of 500-mg Azithromycin Granules: A Randomized, Open-Label, Two-Period Crossover Study in Healthy Han Chinese Volunteers.
TLDR
Single oral doses of 2 commercial brands of azithromycin granules (500 mg) were equivalent with regard to the rate and extent of absorption among these healthy Han Chinese volunteers and both formulations were well tolerated. Expand
Bioavailability of two single-dose oral formulations of omeprazole 20 mg: an open-label, randomized sequence, two-period crossover comparison in healthy Mexican adult volunteers.
TLDR
In this small study in healthy Mexican adult volunteers, a single, 20-mg dose of the test formulation appeared to be bioequivalent to the reference formulation, based on the rate and extent of absorption, and both formulations were generally well tolerated. Expand
Bioequivalence of 2 azithromycin capsule formulations: a randomized, single-dose, open-label, 2-period crossover study in healthy male pakistani volunteers.
TLDR
This single-dose study found that test and reference formulations met the regulatory criteria for bioequivalence in these fasted, healthy male Pakistani volunteers. Expand
Relative bioavailability of generic and branded 250-mg and 500-mg oral chlorphenesin carbamate tablets in healthy Korean volunteers: a single-dose, randomized-sequence, open-label, two-period crossover trial.
TLDR
In this single-dose study in healthy Korean subjects, the generic and branded formulations of chlorphenesin carbamate 250 and 500 mg met the regulatory criteria for bioequivalence and all formulations were well tolerated. Expand
Bioavailability of two sublingual formulations of ketorolac tromethamine 30 mg: a randomized, open-label, single-dose, two-period crossover comparison in healthy Mexican adult volunteers.
TLDR
In this small study in 27 healthy Mexican adult volunteers, the test formulation of a single, 30-mg sublingual tablet of ketorolac appeared to be bioequivalent to the reference formulation based on the rate and extent of absorption, and both formulations were well tolerated. Expand
A Bioequivalence study of two Azithromycin tablet formulations in Indonesian healthy subjects
TLDR
The results indicated that the two formulations of Azithromycin were bioequivalent and thus may be prescribed interchangeably. Expand

Assessment of the bioequivalence of different formulations containing azithromycin (tablets and suspension).
TLDR
It can be concluded that azithromycin test formulations, i.e. tablet and suspension are bioequivalent to the respective reference formulations. Expand
Azithromycin Clinical Pharmacokinetics
TLDR
A 500mg dose on day 1, followed by 250mg daily on days 2 to 5 has been demonstrated to maintain azithromycin concentrations at sites of infection and continues to be effective for several days after administration has ceased, making it a drug with diverse therapeutic applications. Expand
A comparison of the Two One-Sided Tests Procedure and the Power Approach for assessing the equivalence of average bioavailability
TLDR
This Power Approach is compared to another statistical approach, the Two One-Sided Tests Procedure, which leads to the same conclusion as the approach proposed by Westlake (2), based on the usual (shortest) 1–2α confidence interval for the true average difference. Expand
Quantitative Determination of the Antibiotic Azithromycin in Human Serum by High‐Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)‐Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization Mass Spectrometry: Correlation with a Standard HPLC‐Electrochemical Method
TLDR
Because of its low volume requirement, the HPLC-APCI assay can be substituted for the standard assay for the investigation of azithromycin pharmacokinetics in children, and yields accurate and precise results. Expand
