Oculus Innovative Sciences, Inc. Announces Completion of Patient Follow-Up in Scar Management Study
Mar 14 13
Oculus Innovative Sciences, Inc. announced completion of the 112-day follow-up period in the company's clinical trial for the management of hypertrophic or keloid scars. The 40-patient comparative, double-blinded and randomized clinical study was based on an FDA-approved protocol. Patients were enrolled at four different U.S. clinical sites, including Albuquerque, NM, High Point, NC, Austin, TX and College Station, TX. The company is encouraged by the initial clinical trial results from the management of scars trial and expects to complete data analysis and submit the 510k application to the FDA for review within the next 60 to 90 days. In accordance with FDA regulations, the company expects to release the data immediately after completion of FDA's review. The FDA's standard review time from submission to clearance is ninety days, although industry averages suggest this process can take up to six months. The trial's primary endpoint was to compare a uniquely formulated Microcyn Technology-based hydrogel versus a dimethicone comparator using the Vancouver Scar Scale that measured vascularity, height/thickness, pliability and pigmentation of scars. There were no direct product-related serious adverse events in either arm reported during the study. Secondary endpoints included the measurements of pain and itch and other reported adverse events and treatment satisfaction as reported by patients through a questionnaire.
