Safety and Efficacy Study of CitraFleet (Sodium Picosulphate) as an Evacuating Treatment Prior to Colonoscopy.

2014-08-27 03:16:01 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to determine any significant differences in the efficacy and acceptability between CitraFleet and Klean Prep® (polyethylene glycol) for the preparation of gastrointestinal subjects undergoing a colon examination.


The composite principal objective of the current study will therefore be, to determine any significant differences in the joint variable of efficacy and acceptability between CitraFleet and Klean Prep® (polyethylene glycol) for the preparation of subjects undergoing a colon examination.

The evaluation will be carried out by two blinded assessors, independent of the investigator who performed the procedure (endoscopist investigator). It will be assessed from images of different sections of the colon: cecum, ascending, transverse, descending and rectum and subsequent confirmation by Principal Investigator if an agreement has been reached between the two blinded assessors or whether it is necessary to reach consensus.

The evaluation of the subject's acceptability will be assessed using a 5 point scale which assesses the difficulty of taking the product, the degree of discomfort caused by it, and the taste of the drug.

The secondary objective is to evaluate the safety of CitraFleet.

In addition a second exploratory arm of CitraFleet was included in this study (CitraFleet Exploratory arm). The study is not powered to make formal statistical comparisons for this arm. Exploratory assessment of this arm against the main CitraFleet regimen and Klean-Prep will be made in order to run future trials design with this schedule.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Magnesium oxide (MgO). An inorganic compound that occurs in nature as the mineral periclase. In aqueous media combines quickly with water to form magnesium hydroxide. It is used as an antacid and mild laxative and has many nonmedicinal uses.

A key intermediate in metabolism. It is an acid compound found in citrus fruits. The salts of citric acid (citrates) can be used as anticoagulants due to their calcium chelating ability.

A material used for cementation of inlays, crowns, bridges, and orthodontic appliances and occasionally as a temporary restoration. It is prepared by mixing zinc oxide and magnesium oxide powders with a liquid consisting principally of phosphoric acid, water, and buffers. (From Bouchers' Clinical Dental Terminology, 3d ed)

A dicarboxylic acid ketone that is an important metabolic intermediate of the CITRIC ACID CYCLE. It can be converted to ASPARTIC ACID by ASPARTATE TRANSAMINASE.

An enzyme that catalyzes the reversible hydration of fumaric acid to yield L-malic acid. It is one of the citric acid cycle enzymes. EC
