Efficacy and Tolerance of Flucortac in Patients With Orthostatic Neurogenic Hypotension

2019-10-21 12:45:29 | BioPortfolio


To evaluate the efficacy of a 4-week fludrocortisone (FLU) treatment on systolic blood pressure depression after 5 minutes of active orthostatism in patients with neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (HON) symptomatic, despite treatment with non-drug measures with or without midodrine.


The objective of the study is to demonstrate the efficacy of FLU on systolic blood pressure depression in patients with neurogenic orthostatic hypotension. The study is randomised versus placebo.Each patient will be followed for a maximum of 5 months, with no more than 8 visits to the investigator (V0 at Day-7, V1 at D0, V2 at D7, V3 at D+14, V4 at D+21, V5 at D+ 28, V6 at D+56 and V7 only for patients on the FLU arm at D+140.

The presence of a comparator control group with placebo permits to evaluate the efficacy and the tolerance of FLU independently of the natural evolution of the pathology, in patients benefiting from a non-drug or possibly medicated treatment (midodrine) but insufficient.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Symptoms of cerebral hypoperfusion or autonomic overaction which develop while the subject is standing, but are relieved on recumbency. Types of this include NEUROCARDIOGENIC SYNCOPE; POSTURAL ORTHOSTATIC TACHYCARDIA SYNDROME; and neurogenic ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION. (From Noseworthy, JH., Neurological Therapeutics Principles and Practice, 2007, p2575-2576)

A significant drop in BLOOD PRESSURE after assuming a standing position. Orthostatic hypotension is a finding, and defined as a 20-mm Hg decrease in systolic pressure or a 10-mm Hg decrease in diastolic pressure 3 minutes after the person has risen from supine to standing. Symptoms generally include DIZZINESS, blurred vision, and SYNCOPE.

A syndrome of ORTHOSTATIC INTOLERANCE combined with excessive upright TACHYCARDIA, and usually without associated ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION. All variants have in common an excessively reduced venous return to the heart (central HYPOVOLEMIA) while upright.

An autosomal disorder of the peripheral and autonomic nervous systems limited to individuals of Ashkenazic Jewish descent. Clinical manifestations are present at birth and include diminished lacrimation, defective thermoregulation, orthostatic hypotension (HYPOTENSION, ORTHOSTATIC), fixed pupils, excessive SWEATING, loss of pain and temperature sensation, and absent reflexes. Pathologic features include reduced numbers of small diameter peripheral nerve fibers and autonomic ganglion neurons. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1348; Nat Genet 1993;4(2):160-4)

A degenerative disease of the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM that is characterized by idiopathic ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION and a greatly reduced level of CATECHOLAMINES. No other neurological deficits are present.
