Gene Expression and Tolerability Study of NV1FGF in Patients With Peripheral Artery Occlusive Disease Planned to Undergo Major Amputation

2014-08-27 03:12:24 | BioPortfolio


The primary objective is to evaluate the transgene expression (synthesis of FGF-1 mRNA) in injected tissue, at injection site, after Intra Muscular (IM) administration of increasing single doses of NV1FGF.

Secondary objectives :

- To evaluate the safety and tolerability of IM administration of increasing single doses of NV1FGF

- To evaluate the transgene expression (FGF-1 protein) in injected tissues (injection site and remote site)

- To evaluate the presence of FGF-1 receptors in injected tissues (injection site and remote site)

- To evaluate the NV1FGF biodistribution in injected tissues (injection site and remote site), in multiple organs/tissues when appropriate, and plasma

- To evaluate the transgene expression (synthesis of FGF-1 mRNA) in injected tissue at remote site

- To collect data from plasma NV1FGF pharmacokinetics

- To evaluate healing of the amputation site


Screening of 1 to 4 weeks before study drug administration; Single study drug administration 3 to 8 days before planned amputation; 6 months of follow up

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Common occlusive arterial disease which is caused by ATHEROSCLEROSIS. It is characterized by lesions in the innermost layer (ARTERIAL INTIMA) of arteries including the AORTA and its branches to the extremities. Risk factors include smoking, HYPERLIPIDEMIA, and HYPERTENSION.

Pathological processes which result in the partial or complete obstruction of ARTERIES. They are characterized by greatly reduced or absence of blood flow through these vessels. They are also known as arterial insufficiency.

Flunarizine is a selective calcium entry blocker with calmodulin binding properties and histamine H1 blocking activity. It is effective in the prophylaxis of migraine, occlusive peripheral vascular disease, vertigo of central and peripheral origin, and as an adjuvant in the therapy of epilepsy.

Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.

A respiratory stimulant that enhances respiration by acting as an agonist of peripheral chemoreceptors located on the carotid bodies. The drug increases arterial oxygen tension while decreasing arterial carbon dioxide tension in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It may also prove useful in the treatment of nocturnal oxygen desaturation without impairing the quality of sleep.
