Clinical Trial to Assess the Efficacy of µSmin® Plus

2019-09-27 06:30:39 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates treatment with the dietary supplement µSmin® Plus in a group of patients suffering from chronic venous insufficiency in comparison with a similarly-sized group of patients receiving placebo evaluated by quality of life questionnaires, VAS pain scale, CVI symptomatology, and change in the circumference of the affected leg at calf level


In this study we use a dietary supplement - µSmin® Plus - for symptomatic treatment of CVI and we will monitor its impact on CVI symptoms, features, and consequences (item) of the disease listed below: limb edema, walking, daily tasks performance, pain/burning symptoms, pruritus/paresthesis, sensation of heaviness/fatigue, time wasted in the management of the disease, social burden, disease impact on self-confidence, and its impact on physical exercise/recreational activities. Results of related clinical trials were published before showing that this is an active field in clinical reasearch.
