Phase II Dose-Ranging Study of OrthoDerm Patch for Patients With Tennis Elbow

2014-08-27 03:39:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the use of low-dose nitroglycerin transdermal patches to treat pain and function in chronic tennis elbow.

Description

Chronic tendonitis remains difficult to treat. Nitric oxide has been demonstrated to stimulate tenocytes to proliferate, differentiate and produce matrix components including collagen. Studies have demonstrated that nitroglycerin transdermal patches, which release nitric oxide, reduce pain and increase function in patients with chronic tendonitis. The purpose of the present study is to examine the efficacy of three dose levels of nitroglycerin, compared to placebo, in reducing pain and increasing function in patients with chronic (greater than three months' duration) lateral epicondylitis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A medicated adhesive patch placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose of medication into the bloodstream.

An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

Skin tests in which the sensitizer is applied to a patch of cotton cloth or gauze held in place for approximately 48-72 hours. It is used for the elicitation of a contact hypersensitivity reaction.

A vasodilator with general properties similar to NITROGLYCERIN. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1020)

A vasodilator used in the treatment of ANGINA PECTORIS. Its actions are similar to NITROGLYCERIN but with a slower onset of action.
