Efficacy Study of Prucalopride to Treat Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction (CIP)
This study was designed to investigate the clinical safety, tolerability and efficacy of prucalopride in improving the symptoms associated with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) in subjects with CIP. The study hypothesis was that prucalopride at doses up to 4 mg is safe, well tolerated, efficacious and improves the symptoms associated with CIP.
This phase II, double-blind, placebo-controlled, two-treatment four periods cross-over trial investigated the clinical safety, tolerability and the efficacy of R093877 (prucalopride) in improving the symptoms associated with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) in subjects with CIP.
Subjects were treated for 4 periods of 12 weeks each with either R093877 2 mg (2 periods) or placebo (2 periods). In each of the first and second 6 month period, there was a placebo (PLA) and an active drug (PRU) treatment period. There were no wash-out periods. In total,7 subjects were randomized; 2 were assigned to the PLA-PRU-PLA-PRU, 2 to the PRUPLA-PRU-PLA, 2 to the PLA-PRU-PRU-PLA, and 1 to the PRU-PLA-PLA-PRU sequence group. Subjects were allowed to use up to 4 mg of prucalopride per day if the 2 mg dose seemed to be insufficient. Two subjects used an average of 3 mg of prucalopride per day during the active drug periods.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A type of ILEUS, a functional not mechanical obstruction of the INTESTINES. This syndrome is caused by a large number of disorders involving the smooth muscles (MUSCLE, SMOOTH) or the NERVOUS SYSTEM.
A condition caused by the lack of intestinal PERISTALSIS or INTESTINAL MOTILITY without any mechanical obstruction. This interference of the flow of INTESTINAL CONTENTS often leads to INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION. Ileus may be classified into postoperative, inflammatory, metabolic, neurogenic, and drug-induced.
Functional obstruction of the COLON leading to MEGACOLON in the absence of obvious COLONIC DISEASES or mechanical obstruction. When this condition is acquired, acute, and coexisting with another medical condition (trauma, surgery, serious injuries or illness, or medication), it is called Ogilvie's syndrome.
Blockage in any part of the URETER causing obstruction of urine flow from the kidney to the URINARY BLADDER. The obstruction may be congenital, acquired, unilateral, bilateral, complete, partial, acute, or chronic. Depending on the degree and duration of the obstruction, clinical features vary greatly such as HYDRONEPHROSIS and obstructive nephropathy.
Dilatation of the intestinal lymphatic system usually caused by an obstruction in the intestinal wall. It may be congenital or acquired and is characterized by DIARRHEA; HYPOPROTEINEMIA; peripheral and/or abdominal EDEMA; and PROTEIN-LOSING ENTEROPATHIES.
Small bowel involvement is still recognized to be associated with great morbidity and mortality in SSc patients, leading particularly to malabsorption and intestinal pseudo-obstruction. In...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of Seprafilm in reducing the incidence of bowel obstruction and to evaluate the incidence of all serious adverse events (SAEs) associat...
The primary objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of Lanreotide 120 mg for the relief of clinical symptoms due to malignant bowel obstruction in inoperable patients. This effec...
Biliary obstruction can be relieved by biliary stent. Ascending infection of biliary passage (cholangitis) causes hospitalization and obstruction of stents. Reflux of intestinal fluids thr...
Primary Objective: To demonstrate whether an early fixed Somatostatin treatment improves the complete recovery rate of early postoperative simple small bowel obstruction (EPSSBO) compared...
Intestinal pseudo-obstruction is a rare and relatively unknown complication of phaeochromocytoma÷ paraganglioma (PCC÷PGL). Its pathophysiology can be explained by the hypersecretion of catecholamine...
A 70-year-old male presenting with abdominal pain was clinically diagnosed to have chronic intestinal obstruction due to lesion in ileo-cecal junction based on barium meal follow through. He underwent...
Intestinal obstruction is a common complication in patients with advanced abdominal or pelvic cancer. The synthetic somatostatin analogue octreotide can help relieve nausea, vomiting and pain in patie...
Bezoars are an unusual cause of acute intestinal obstruction in children. Most cases are trichobezoars in adolescent girls who swallow their hair. Lactobezoars are another unusual but occasionally rep...
Acute colonic pseudo-obstruction is a rare complication of gynecological surgery. Despite the complete description of this condition, diagnosis remains difficult and is often delayed. Due to delay in...
