Abstract: A bioequivalence study of two oral formulations of 400 mg norfloxacin was carried out in 18 healthy volunteers according to a single dose, two-sequence, cross-over randomized design at College of Pharmacy, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, jointly with King Khalid University Hospital. The two formulations were: Uroxin (Julphar, United Arab Emirates) as test and Noroxin (Merck Sharpe & Dohme, BV, Netherlands). Both test and reference formulations were administered to each subject after an overnight fasting on 2 treatment days separated by 1 week wash-out period. After dosing, serial blood samples were collected for a period of 24 h. Plasma harvested from blood, was analysed for norfloxacin by a sensitive, reproducible and accurate HPLC method. Various pharmacokinetic parameters including AUC(0-t), AUC(0-infinity), C(max), T(max), T(1/2), and K(el) were determined from plasma concentrations for both the formulations and found to be in good agreement with reported values. AUC(0-t), AUC(0-infinity), and C(max) were tested for bioequivalence after log-transformation of data. No significant difference was found based on ANOVA; 90% confidence interval for test/reference ratio of these parameters were found within a bioequivalence acceptance range of 80-125%. Based on these statistical inferences, it was concluded that Uroxin is bioequivalent to Noroxin
