Juvista (Avotermin) in Scars Following Varicose Vein Removal

2014-07-23 21:30:15 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This trial is being undertaken to investigate the efficacy and safety of Juvista in the improvement of scar appearance when administered to approximated wound margins following varicose vein surgery. The results from this trial will be used to select doses for investigation in future clinical trials with the compound.

Description

Patients undergoing bilateral removal of the saphenous vein (by ligation and stripping) will be invited to participate in the study. Consenting patients will undergo a detailed screening examination, after which suitability to progress to randomisation to the study will be confirmed.

Suitable screened patients will attend for scheduled surgery of vein removal as normal - this is termed "Day 0" At the time of wound closure, IMP will be administered via intra-dermal injection to each of the incisional groin wounds, and exit wounds.

Each patient will serve as their own control with one leg being administered active IMP (at either a 5, 50, 200 or 500ng/100 ul)of dose solution, whilst the other leg is administered placebo solution. The study is double-blinded, so neither the Investigator nor patient will know which leg wounds receive which treatment.

Further to Day 0, the patients are requested to attend for a further 5 follow up visits (Week 6, Month 3, Month 5, Month 7 & Month 12), where photographs of the scars will be taken, together with spectrophotometry readings to measure colour of the scar. At each visit, the Investigator and patient will rate their opinion of the scar, by global assessment scale & VAS, together with patient completed questionnaires.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Enlarged and tortuous VEINS.

Skin breakdown or ulceration caused by varicose veins in which there is too much hydrostatic pressure in the superficial venous system of the leg. Venous hypertension leads to increased pressure in the capillary bed, transudation of fluid and proteins into the interstitial space, altering blood flow and supply of nutrients to the skin and subcutaneous tissues, and eventual ulceration.
