a study on Bacterial Vaginosis
This Phase 2b trial is designed to provide a screening evaluation for the hypothesis that, following a 5-day treatment with MetroGel® to treat BV, L. crispatus CTV-05 (LACTIN-V, Osel, Inc.) administered at 2 x 10^9 cfu/dose using a vaginal applicator reduces the 12-week incidence of BV recurrence when compared to placebo. The primary objectives of this study are: 1) To estimate the efficacy of repeated doses of LACTIN-V (2 x 10^9 cfu/dose) as compared to placebo in preventing BV recurrence by 12 weeks following treatment of BV with MetroGel vaginal gel (MetroGel). 2) To assess the safety of LACTIN-V over 24 weeks by comparing the incidence of AEs between individuals randomized to LACTIN-V or placebo.
Phase II-b Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Trial of Lactobacillus Crispatus CTV-05 (LACTIN-V) to Prevent the Recurrence of Bacterial Vaginosis
This is a Phase II-b multicenter randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial to assess the efficacy of repeated doses of LACTIN-V compared to placebo in preventing BV recurrence in women diagnosed with BV. The study will also assess the safety of LACTIN-V by comparing the incidence of AEs between women randomized to LACTIN-V or placebo. The study plans to enroll 228 non-pregnant, pre-menopausal women age 18 to 45 years. Women will be randomized 2:1 to receive LACTIN-V or placebo. Potentially eligible women will start a standard 5-day course of MetroGel. Women will return to the study clinic within 2 days after completing the 5-day course of MetroGel to re-evaluate eligibility criteria and review the BV test results from the screening visit. Women with Amsel criteria> /=3 and Nugent score 4-10 will be instructed to administer the LACTIN-V or placebo at home for 5 consecutive days and then twice weekly for 10 weeks. The primary objectives of this study are: 1) To estimate the efficacy of repeated doses of LACTIN-V (2 x109 cfu/dose) as compared to placebo in preventing BV recurrence by 12 weeks following treatment of BV with MetroGel vaginal gel (MetroGel). 2) To assess the safety of LACTIN-V over 24 weeks by comparing the incidence of AEs between individuals randomized to LACTIN-V or placebo. Secondary objectives are: 1) To investigate the colonization of LACTIN-V (presence of L. crispatus CTV-05 in the vaginal specimen) and fluctuations over 12 weeks, in relation to menses and sexual intercourse 2) To evaluate user acceptability and tolerability of LACTIN-V over 12 weeks, including perceptions around method of delivery and dosing. 3) To measure long-term colonization of LACTIN-V at 24 weeks (12 weeks after last dosing) 4) To estimate the long-term efficacy of repeated doses of LACTIN-V (2 x 109 cfu/dose) as compared to placebo in preventing BV recurrence at 24 weeks (12 weeks after last dosing)
Bacterial Vaginosis CTV-05 LACTIN-V Lactobacillus MetroGel® Vaginitis Metronidazole
Open to females ages 18–45
Amsel criteria. Note: Amsel criteria include the following: --Homogeneous, thin,grayish-white discharge that smoothly coats the vaginal walls; --Vaginal pH>4.5;--Positive whiff-amine test, defined as the presence of a fishy odor when a drop of 10%potassium hydroxide (KOH) is added to a sample of vaginal discharge; --Presence of clue cells (>20% on microscopy). 3. Untreated BV(asymptomatic or symptomatic) as confirmed in the laboratory using the Nugent scoring system (Nugent Score>/= 4) 4. Otherwise healthy pre-menopausal women 18-45 years of age on the day of screening 5. Regular predictable menstrual cycles or amenorrheic for at least 3 months due to use of a long-acting progestin or continuous use of oral contraceptives 6. Willing to be asked questions about personal medical health and sexual history. 7. Willing to apply study agent vaginally and comply with study examinations. 8. Agree to abstain from sexual intercourse during the first 5 consecutive days of study product administration, 12 hours prior to study visits and for 12 hours after each study product application 9. Agree to abstain from the use of any other intravaginal product throughout the trial period from the time of screening through Visit 7 (Week 24, Day 168) Note: Intravaginal products include contraceptive creams such as Gynol II, gels, foams, sponges, lubricants not approved by the study investigators, and douches. Limit use of tampons during menstruation to unscented products. 10. Must be of non-childbearing potential or if of childbearing potential, must agree to use a reliable method of birth control for the duration of the study Note:Reliable methods of birth control include tubal ligation, male partner with a vasectomy, a steroidal contraceptive (oral, patch, injectable or implantable), IUD, condoms or abstinence.
Criteria will be assessed at screening and enrollment. *Note: Criteria will be assessed at enrollment
