Study to Assess the Effectiveness and Safety of FLECTOR® Patch for Treatment of Acute Back Strain

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


Although approved for minor strains, sprains and contusions, FLECTOR® Patch has not been studied extensively in the setting of acute back strain. This study is being conducted as an initial step in demonstrating the benefit of FLECTOR® Patch specifically for back strain. In particular, this study is expected to provide information about the amount of improvement in back strain among subjects using the FLECTOR® Patch, which may then be used to inform subsequent studies.

To Patch, or Not to Patch, that Is the Question.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

A medicated adhesive patch placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose of medication into the bloodstream.

Skin tests in which the sensitizer is applied to a patch of cotton cloth or gauze held in place for approximately 48-72 hours. It is used for the elicitation of a contact hypersensitivity reaction.

Extravasation of blood into the skin, resulting in a nonelevated, rounded or irregular, blue or purplish patch, larger than a petechia.
