A total of 30 patients were included. Basically, the FDA criterion for determining therapeutic equivalence is formulation equivalence. Bioequivalence is the comparison between the bioavailability of a medicine under study and the bioavailability of a reference drug.
Noecker and Simmons 18,19 consider that although generic product manufacturers comply with all Ofhalmicos standards, the response of individual patients to a given medicine is unknown. The US Food and Drugs Administration FDA 1 requires that study medicines contain the same active and inactive ingredients at antigglaucomatosos same concentration as the reference product.
Considering the dosage of 1 drop in each eye four oftwlmicos a day, for a total of 8 drops a day, the average cost of the drop, the monthly and the annual cost of the treatment were estimated according to the wholesale price, which is the highest price at which a laboratory or distributor of medicines can sell their product in the Brazilian market.
Comparison of aqueous and gellan ophthalmic timolol with placebo on the hour heart rate response in patients on treatment for glaucoma.
The United States Pharmacopeial Convention; Bioavailability is defined as the amount and speed at which the active ingredient is absorbed from a pharmaceutical form and reaches the site of action biophase. Once the adjustment of the anfiglaucomatosos to calibrate smaller droplets is a costly process, an immediate action to minimize the cost would be properly guide the consumers in a descriptive and illustrative way in the directions of which would be the best way of applying each eyedrop.
Are generics and brand-name medicines the same?* |
None of the eyedrop vials studied showed droplets ideal to the human eye, leading to product waste and increased cost to the manufacturer and the consumer. For eye drops, nasal sprays and cutaneous solutions, bioequivalence is accepted if the drug is in the same solution aqueous or oily and contains the same active ingredient concentration as the reference product. To conduct bioequivalence studies, blood is collected at several time points after administering the product, according to the drug’s half-life.
However, it is worth considering that each product has its particularities and individual characteristics that may lead to a need for greater or lesser frequency of application. We used the highest volume presentation available of the brands studied: Viscosity-modifying agents increase drug contact time with the ocular surface, thus improving absorption.
The ratio of active compounds of the eyedrops analyzed is presented in table 1.

Original Articles Revista vol. The main purpose of preservatives is to inhibit bacterial contamination. Later, the mass of 1. When patients ask about replacing a branded product oftalicos its generic counterpart, all we can honestly say as doctors is that the new generic medicine has not been studied, analysed or compared to the original medicine, and so we cannot know whether it will act in a similar way — in other words, whether both medicines are equally effective.
Twenty droplets of distilled water counted in the normal dropper at a temperature of 15oC must weigh 1g 8.
Whereas some look solid, others seem to be fibrillary in nature. No statistically significant differences were observed between both medications at 8 am, nor 2 hours after administration.
The concentration of the active ingredient in blood is then measured to estimate bioavailability kinetic values. In the previous edition, the Brazilian Pharmacopeia defined that any measurement tool to administer liquid medicines must meet specific volumetric standards: Local action medicines include dermatological products such as creams and ointmentsinhaled products, eye and ear drops, nasal products and products administered to the oral, vaginal or rectal cavities with a local effect.
One problem with the generic drug suspension manufactured by Sabex Pharmaceutical Quebec is that it would require at least 70 shakes to obtain an homogenous suspension At the end of the second period, there were no significant differences between both treatments. Leia na Palavra do Presidente. Corneal complications associated with tropical ophthalmic use of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs. Subjects exercised maximally on a cycle ergometer four times with ten-day intervals.
The official medical eyedropper, according to the American Pharmacopoeia, presents an outter diameter of 3 mm and dispenses 20 drops of distilled water per mL at a temperature of 25oC by positioning the eyedropper perpendicular to the person that will receive the drop 1.
Considering the therapeutic equivalence of tear solutions, the cost minimization analysis is a simple way of economic evaluation in which only the costs are subjected to comparisons because the efficacy or the effectiveness of the comparable alternatives are equal 11, This way, the average volume of each droplet was determined by the ratio between the mass of 1. Estacia P, Tognon T.
Another factor that influences the volume of the drop is the slope of the dropper vial. The FDA 1 considers that: In this case, we are inclined to suggest that the patient try the generic. It was decided not to use the Maximum Consumer Price 7since some of the eyedrops have the status of Free from Taxation According to the average number of droplets contained in each vial and the dosage defined, it was also determined the Maximum Treatment Duration for each eyedrop, as well as the number of vials consumed per year.
To oftallmicos the mean drop volume produced by artificial tear solutions in different inclination angles and to determine the mean cost of the treatment. Temperature affects active ingredient concentration in eye drops. No differences in excipient composition are accepted. Cantor 20 considers that when switching to a generic medicine, neither the patient not the physician oftamicos be sure that the new medicine will be well tolerated or effective.
In turn, they can modify the ability of a given active ingredient to remain in solution and stabilize interaction with the tear film, affecting tolerance. This is not to say patients should not use generic drugs, but we must monitor the effects to ensure our patients are getting the cost savings they expect without sacrificing efficacy or creating side effects and tolerability antiglaucomatosps.
Local or topical action medicines A local or topical action medicine is a product which is applied locally and assumed to act on the site where it is administered.
