Randomized, open label, single dose, 2-way crossover study to investigate the bioequivalence of a new fixed dose combination (FDC) tablet of nifedipine GITS and candesartan with the corresponding loose combination under fed conditions.
- The informed consent form must be signed before any study specific tests or procedures are done - Confirmation of the subject’s health insurance coverage prior to the first screening visit - Healthy male subject - Ethnicity: Caucasian - Age: 18 to 45 years (inclusive) at the first screening visit - Body mass index (BMI) above or equal 18, and below or equal 29.9 kg / m² - Ability to understand and follow study-related instructions

Single dose study to compare the pharmacokinetics as well as safety and tolerability of a novel fixed dose combination of nifedipine GITS and candesartan and the loose combination of both components and to investigate the bioequivalence between the fixed dose and the loose combination in healthy male subjects under fed conditions in an open label, randomized, 2-way-crossover design
