2014-08-27 03:36:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Anal fissure is a solitary ulcer in the squamous epithelium of the anus causing intense anal pain especially upon defecation and for one or two hours afterwards. There are no approved drugs in the US for this condition and surgery is often the treatment choice. Strakan is conducting this confirmatory study so the product can be submitted for regulatory approval in the US. Strakan currently markets this product throughout Europe.

To determine the effect of Cellegesic versus placebo on average pain intensity over every 24 hour period for up to 21 days of treatment in 250 patients.
