    Background: This clinical study was conducted to compare pharmacokinetics of eperisone and
    aceclofenac of HCP1104, a new fixed dose combination drug with those in co-administration of eperisone
    50 mg and aceclofenac 100 mg. The study used a partial replicated study design to characterize
    intra-subject variability of eperisone when co-administrated with aceclofenac.
    Methods: A partial replicated crossover design was employed in 30 subjects. Each subject received a
    single dose of co-administration of eperisone 50 mg and aceclofenac 100 mg on two occasions and a
    single dose of 1 capsule of HCP1104. Blood samples were obtained for 24 hrs after dosing, and plasma
    was assayed for eperisone and aceclofenac by Liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-mass
    Results: Using an average bioequivalence criterion, the 90 % confidence limits for Ln-transformed Cmax
    and AUClast for aceclofenac fell wihin the acceptable range of 80 - 125 %. Point estimates of eperisone
    AUClast and Cmax were 1.0152 and 1.0490, respectively and the 90 % confidence interval for Cmax was
    0.8499 - 1.3025. The within-subject coefficient of variation of Cmax for the reference was 50.198 %.
    Acceptance range for eperisone Cmax based on new bioequivalence guidance for highly variable drugs was
    extended to 0.6984 - 1.4319.
    Conclusion: The extent of exposure and rate of absorption of both eperisone and aceclofenac with a
    single dose of HCP1104 capsule were equivalent to those with co-administration of a marketed eperisone
    50 mg tablet and a marketed aceclofenac 100 mg tablet under fasting conditions in healthy adult males.
