Bioequivalence is a term in pharmacokinetics used to assess the expected in vivo biological equivalence of two proprietary preparations of a drug. If two products are said to be bioequivalent it means that they would be expected to be, for all intents and purposes, the same. 


A Protocol is a document which states the background, rationale and objectives of the trial and describes its design, methodology and organization, including statistical considerations, and the conditions under which it is to be performed and managed. The protocol should be dated and signed by the investigator, the institution involved and the sponsor. It can also function as a contract. 

Quality Assurance

Systems and quality control procedures will be established to ensure that the trial is performed and the data generated in compliance with good clinical practice (GCP) and good laboratory practice (GLP). GCP and GLP provide a general framework enabling the efficient implementation and performance of all the functions and activities for a particular bioequivalence study as described in this document. 

Good Laboratory Practice

Good Laboratory Practice or GLP is a quality system concerned with the organizational process and the conditions under which nonclinical health and environmental safety studies are planned, performed, monitored, recorded, archived and reported.
