Kinetics of absorption of a new once-a-day formulation of theophylline in the presence and absence of food

Two three-way crossover studies were done to characterize the drug release characteristics of Monospan (3M Pharmaceuticals, St. Paul, MN) capsules, a new once-a-day theophylline formulation. In the first study, 22 healthy males received single 450-mg doses of Monospan in the presence and absence of a high-fat breakfast; the same dose of Somophyllin (Fisons, Rochester, NY) immediate-release liquid was given to fasted subjects as a reference. The second study involved 29 healthy males given a single dose of 900 mg of Monospan in the presence and absence of the same high-fat meal; Theo-24 (G. D. Searle and Co., Skokie, IL) capsules were given to fasted subjects as a reference. The results of both studies showed that food did not affect the absorption of theophylline from Monospan; peak concentration, time to peak concentration, and area under the serum concentration-time curve were all unchanged. The absorption rates were similar with both strengths and dietary conditions and showed that theophylline was absorbed slowly from Monospan at a constant rate ( apprx 3.2%/h) over 24 h. Absorption continued past 24 h, and the extent of absorption from Monospan compared with that from each reference averaged 88% or higher. A good correlation (r gt 0.980) was observed for Monospan between the amount absorbed in vivo and the amount released in the in vitro dissolution test, a result that demonstrates the precise rate control of Monospan. We conclude that Monospan is a suitable once-a-day formulation that can be taken without regard to food.
