Safety Study of LiRIS in Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Patients

2014-08-27 03:12:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is primarily to evaluate the safety and tolerability of an investigational drug-delivery system (LiRIS) in patients who have moderate to severe symptoms of interstitial cystitis.

Description

Approximately 12 patients with interstitial cystitis will be enrolled in this study at multiple centers in Canada. LiRIS is being developed to provide drug therapy directly into the urinary bladder. LiRIS contains Lidocaine, a marketed drug (approved by Health Canada) which is commonly used for local (skin or oral) anaesthesia. LiRIS is designed to release a controlled amount of lidocaine while in the bladder over a 2 week period.

Following informed consent procedures, a Screening Visit is done to check general health and determine eligibility for the study. Maximum duration of participation, including a screening period of up to 14 days, will be 44 days.

Epstein-Barr Virus Presence As A Potential Etiology of Persistent Bladder Inflammation in Human Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome.

Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome is characterized by bladder inflammation without a bacterial infection. Although viral infection is a potential etiologic cause, few studies are reported.

Urodynamic characteristics might be variable in bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis patients with different non-bladder co-morbid conditions.

The aim of the study was to identify the impact of non-bladder co-morbid conditions on the urodynamic characteristics of patients with bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition with recurring discomfort or pain in the URINARY BLADDER and the surrounding pelvic region without an identifiable disease. Severity of pain in interstitial cystitis varies greatly and often is accompanied by increased urination frequency and urgency.

Inflammation of the URINARY BLADDER, either from bacterial or non-bacterial causes. Cystitis is usually associated with painful urination (dysuria), increased frequency, urgency, and suprapubic pain.

Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.

Inflammation of the interstitial tissue of the kidney. This term is generally used for primary inflammation of KIDNEY TUBULES and/or surrounding interstitium. For primary inflammation of glomerular interstitium, see GLOMERULONEPHRITIS. Infiltration of the inflammatory cells into the interstitial compartment results in EDEMA, increased spaces between the tubules, and tubular renal dysfunction.

Steroid-producing cells in the interstitial tissue of the TESTIS. They are under the regulation of PITUITARY HORMONES; LUTEINIZING HORMONE; or interstitial cell-stimulating hormone. TESTOSTERONE is the major androgen (ANDROGENS) produced.
