Efficacy and Safety of JHG002 for Chronic Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction: A Multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial

2019-09-15 03:11:26 | BioPortfolio


This study is a 2-arm parallel, assessor blinded, multi-centre, randomised controlled trial.


From 2 hospitals of Korean medicine, we will enrol 82 chronic TMD patients in Axis 1, Group Ⅰ according to RDC/TMD diagnostic criteria, and randomly allocate 41 patients each to an HPP group and a physical therapy (PT) group. Treatment will be administered in 10 rounds, after which there will be 4 follow-up visits (6, 9, 13, and 25 weeks from baseline). The primary end point is 6 weeks after baseline, and the primary outcome is the difference in Visual analogue scale (VAS) score for temporomandibular pain between baseline and Week 6. Secondary outcomes will be Numeric rating scale (NRS) scores for temporomandibular pain and discomfort, temporomandibular joint range of motion, Korean version of Beck's Depression Index-Ⅱ(K-BDI-II), Jaw Functional Limitation Scale (JFLS), Patien Global Impression of Change(PGIC), and quality of life. Using data on adverse events and cost-effectiveness in the two groups, we will perform a safety assessment and a cost-effectiveness analysis (economic assessment).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)

A species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, but containing different esterases. The subspecies Staphylococcus hominis novobiosepticus is highly virulent and novobiocin resistant.

A polypeptide hormone of approximately 25 kDa that is produced by the SYNCYTIOTROPHOBLASTS of the PLACENTA, also known as chorionic somatomammotropin. It has both GROWTH HORMONE and PROLACTIN activities on growth, lactation, and luteal steroid production. In women, placental lactogen secretion begins soon after implantation and increases to 1 g or more a day in late pregnancy. Placental lactogen is also an insulin antagonist.
