Efficacy Study of Prucalopride to Treat Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction (CIP)

2014-07-24 09:15:12 | BioPortfolio


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.
