AbstractObjective: The purpose of this study was to compare the pharmacokinetic parameters and determine the bioequivalence of a generic formulation of clindamycin that is sold in the local markets in the Middle East (Clindox® 150 mg capsule; test) with a reference formulation (Dalacin C® 150 mg capsule) in healthy adult male volunteers. Methods: A single-dose, open-label, 2-period crossover study was conducted. Healthy male volunteers were randomly assigned to oral administration of a single treatment of the reference and test formulations. The same groups were given the alternate formulation. After dosing, serial blood samples were withdrawn for a period of 24 h. Serum harvested from the blood samples was analyzed for clindamycin by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with ultraviolet detection. Pharmacokinetic parameters, including AUC0-∞, AUC 0-t, Cmax, Ke, tmax and t 1/2 were determined from the serum concentrations for both formulations (test and reference). The products were tested for bioequivalence after log-transformation of the data. Results: 24 healthy adult male volunteers from Jordan (mean [SD] age, 28.8 (7.7) years (range 19-45 years); height, 175.8 (10.6) cm (range 159.0-192.0 cm); weight, 75.6 (11.0) kg (range 58-101 kg); and body mass index, 24.4 (1.8) kg/m2 (range 21.3-28 kg/m2)) were enrolled in and completed the study. The 13C NMR spectra for both Dalacin C® and Clindox® showed 18 distinct lines associated with the 18 different carbon atoms. Conclusion: The statistical comparison suggested that Clindox® capsules are bioequivalent to Dalacin C® capsules. The 13C CPMAS results confirmed that the two drugs exhibit typical clindamycin spectra. ©2011 Dustri-Verlag Dr. K. Feistle.
