A Safety and Efficacy Study of NicaPlant® in Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Haemorrhage Patients Undergoing Aneurysm Clipping

2020-02-17 18:20:36 | BioPortfolio


This study of NicaPlant® is conducted in patients who have a subarachnoid haemorrhage. Patients will be randomized in two treatment groups. Both groups will receive the standard of care and the investigational group will receive in addition NicaPlant®. NicaPlant® is tested to reduce the long-term complications of aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH).


This is a safety, tolerability, efficacy and pharmacokinetic study of NicaPlant® in subarachnoid haemorrhage patients involving two treatment groups. Both treatment groups will receive standard of care and patients randomised to the investigational group will receive in addition NicaPlant® .

NicaPlant® is a nicardipine modified-release formulation. It is presented in the form of a rod-shaped implant with a 4 mg nicardipine load. Following aneurysm clip ligation, 10 NicaPlant® implants will be placed into the basal cisterns in direct contact with the exposed cerebral blood vessel walls.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.

Bleeding into the SUBARACHNOID SPACE due to CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Minor hemorrhages may be asymptomatic; moderate to severe hemorrhages may be associated with INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION and VASOSPASM, INTRACRANIAL.

Inflammation of the coverings of the brain and/or spinal cord, which consist of the PIA MATER; ARACHNOID; and DURA MATER. Infections (viral, bacterial, and fungal) are the most common causes of this condition, but subarachnoid hemorrhage (HEMORRHAGES, SUBARACHNOID), chemical irritation (chemical MENINGITIS), granulomatous conditions, neoplastic conditions (CARCINOMATOUS MENINGITIS), and other inflammatory conditions may produce this syndrome. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1994, Ch24, p6)

The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.

Bleeding within the SKULL induced by penetrating and nonpenetrating traumatic injuries, including hemorrhages into the tissues of CEREBRUM; BRAIN STEM; and CEREBELLUM; as well as into the epidural, subdural and subarachnoid spaces of the MENINGES.
