Pruritus is one of the most common and disturbing symptoms in hemodialysis (HD) patients. The pathogenesis of pruritus in HD patients is multifactorial; however, a little progress in understanding thi...
Chronic pruritus causes major morbidity in epidermolysis bullosa (EB). The substance P-neurokinin 1 receptor (SP-NK1) pathway is a promising target for treating EB-related pruritus.
Chronic pruritus is a bothersome symptom in psoriasis vulgaris and can profoundly reduce quality of life (QoL). In this exploratory analysis of the PSORITUS study the impact of pruritus on QoL in 130 ...

This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, 4-arm, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of twice-daily (BID) oral difelikefalin (CR845) in adult subjects with ...
Double-blind, Placebo-controlled study to evaluate the dose-response relationship of safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of MA13A9 in hemodialysis patients with pruritus.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety and dose response of SK-1405 for the treatment of subjects with uremic pruritus receiving hemodialysis, during 2 weeks of trea...

This is a single blind randomized trial to compare efficacy and side effects of Gabapentin with Doxepin. Hemodialysis patients with uremic pruritus at one dialysis center of Saint George H...
Work that is a report of a pre-planned, usually controlled, clinical study of the safety and efficacy of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques after phase II trials. A large enough group of patients is studied and closely monitored by physicians for adverse response to long-term exposure, over a period of about three years in either the United States or a foreign country.
Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
Work that is a report of a pre-planned, usually controlled, clinical study of the safety and efficacy of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques based on several hundred volunteers, including a limited number of patients, and conducted over a period of about two years in either the United States or a foreign country.
Hospital units in which care is provided the hemodialysis patient. This includes hemodialysis centers in hospitals.
Comparative studies to verify the effectiveness of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques determined in phase II studies. During these trials, patients are monitored closely by physicians to identify any adverse reactions from long-term use. These studies are performed on groups of patients large enough to identify clinically significant responses and usually last about three years. This concept includes phase III studies conducted in both the U.S. and in other countries.
