Summary

This is an open label study. The study will consist of 1 treatment group: coated Nifedipine suppository containing 12 mg of Nifedipine, administered BID to subjects with chronic anal fissure.

Description

This is an open label study. The study will consist of 1 treatment group: coated Nifedipine suppository containing 12 mg of Nifedipine. Approximately 20 subjects will participate into this 8-week study. A screening visit will be used to determine subject suitability for inclusion in the trial. Within one week of the screening visit, subjects who meet all inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria will receive Coated Nifedipine 12 mg Suppository X2 a day (BID) (24 mg/day total) for a period of 8 weeks. During this period, 4 study visits (at 0, 2, 5, and 8 weeks) will take place. Study medication will be administered BID (in the morning and in the evening). In addition to receiving study medication, subjects will be maintained on a standard treatment for Anal Fissure: sitz baths, high fiber diet.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Intense chronic itching in the anal area.

A chronic suppurative and cicatricial disease of the apocrine glands occurring chiefly in the axillae in women and in the groin and anal regions in men. It is characterized by poral occlusion with secondary bacterial infection, evolving into abscesses which eventually rupture. As the disease becomes chronic, ulcers appear, sinus tracts enlarge, fistulas develop, and fibrosis and scarring become evident.

Specialized regions of the cell membrane composed of pits coated with a bristle covering made of the protein CLATHRIN. These pits are the entry route for macromolecules bound by cell surface receptors. The pits are then internalized into the cytoplasm to form the COATED VESICLES.

TRANSPORT VESICLES formed when cell-membrane coated pits (COATED PITS, CELL-MEMBRANE) invaginate and pinch off. The outer surface of these vesicles is covered with a lattice-like network of COP (coat protein complex) proteins, either COPI or COPII. COPI coated vesicles transport backwards from the cisternae of the GOLGI APPARATUS to the rough endoplasmic reticulum (ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM, ROUGH), while COPII coated vesicles transport forward from the rough endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus.

Vesicles formed when cell-membrane coated pits (COATED PITS, CELL-MEMBRANE) invaginate and pinch off. The outer surface of these vesicles is covered with a lattice-like network of the protein CLATHRIN. Shortly after formation, however, the clathrin coat is removed and the vesicles are referred to as ENDOSOMES.
