2014-07-23 21:13:40 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is an exploratory trial of Bovine Colostrum powder to decrease translocation of gut-derived microbial products and immune activation in HCV infection.

The study is designed as a single-arm, open-label, before-and after exploratory trial of 10 weeks of Bovine Colostrum Powder (BCP) to reduce translocation of intestinal microbial products and immune activation in patients suffering from chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection.

The study population will include HCV-infected (genotype 1) men and women, ≥ 18 years of age, not receiving anti-viral therapy at the time of enrollment and for at least the previous 3 months. Having failed previous anti-viral therapy (non responders), HCV recurrence after 72 weeks of therapy, developed side effects which mandated stopping anti viral therapy, or not considered eligible for initiation of such treatment, with a plasma HCV RNA level ≥ 1000 I.U.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Forms to which substances are incorporated to improve the delivery and the effectiveness of drugs. Drug carriers are used in drug-delivery systems such as the controlled-release technology to prolong in vivo drug actions, decrease drug metabolism, and reduce drug toxicity. Carriers are also used in designs to increase the effectiveness of drug delivery to the target sites of pharmacological actions. Liposomes, albumin microspheres, soluble synthetic polymers, DNA complexes, protein-drug conjugates, and carrier erythrocytes among others have been employed as biodegradable drug carriers.
