Abstract: In this paper, we describe the physicochemical and biopharmaceutical properties of 3-fluoro-2-pyrimidylmethyl 3-(2,2-difluoro-2-(2-pyridyl)ethylamino)-6-chloropyrazin-2-one-1-acetamide, a direct thrombin inhibitor (1, Fig. 1). Three crystalline forms were characterized and studies were planned to investigate the absorption characteristics of the three selected crystalline forms. Due to the short half-life observed in preclinical species, regional absorption studies were also conducted to support potential cont…
