To evaluate the relative bioavailability of a single dose of amphetamine extended-release oral suspension (AMPH EROS) compared with a single dose of extended-release mixed amphetamine salts (ER MAS) in healthy, fasted adult subjects. The study population consisted of healthy adult volunteers. The study drug used in this study was 7.5 mL of 2.5 mg/mL AMPH EROS equivalent to 18.8 mg of amphetamine base administered after an overnight fast of at least 10 hours. AMPH EROS comprises a 3.2:1 enantiomeric ratio of d-amphetamine to l-amphetamine. The reference product was one 30 mg ER MAS capsule (equivalent to 18.8 mg of amphetamine base). Relative bioavailability between the products was determined by a statistical comparison of the area under the curve and maximum concentration (Cmax) for d-amphetamine and l-amphetamine. PK (PK) blood samples were collected prior to dosing (0-hour) and at 1, 2, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 24, 36, 48, and 60 hours after drug administration, totaling 20 samples in each period. The mean subject age was 35.0 (standard deviation ±8) years, and the overall study population comprised 19 (63.3%) males and 11 (36.7%) females. The contrasts for geometric mean ratios for all assessed PK parameters (for both l- and d-amphetamine) between the test article AMPH EROS and reference product ER MAS fell within the prescribed 80% to 125% limits. The overall PK profile of single-dose AMPH EROS 7.5 mL was found to be comparable with a single dose of oral ER MAS 30 mg.
