Painful Diabetic Neuropathy

Study Name: Painful Diabetic Neuropathy

Clinics: Barnsley, Blackpool, Cannock, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Teesside

Therapy Area: Diabetic Neuropathy

Gender and Age: Male and female (of non-childbearing potential) aged between 18 and 80

Description: 

MAC is currently conducting a trial to test a new potential treatment for painful diabetic neuropathy (PDN). Diabetic neuropathy is the most common long-term complication of diabetes and is often experienced in terms of a burning, stabbing, pricking or aching sensation that is chronic and difficult to manage. The condition carries a substantial physical, social, and economic burden.

The trial medication aims to relieve or improve the pain experienced from diabetic neuropathy. The trial medication is also currently under investigation for use in other painful conditions. The medication or placebo will be administered intravenously, 6 times in total over 12 weeks of the 25-week trial period and is being developed to address the existing unmet need for an effective and safe treatment for this condition.

Reimbursement: 

£965
