FzioMed Enrolls Patient Number Fifty in Clinical Study to Support the Effectiveness and Safety of Oxiplex® for the Reduction of Pain and Symptoms Following Lumbar Surgery

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., March 28, 2019 – Oxiplex® is an absorbable, synthetic viscoelastic gel that is applied following partial discectomy, with the intent to reduce postoperative leg pain, back pain and neurologic symptoms. Oxiplex® is approved in more than 70 countries as an adhesion barrier, supported by peer reviewed, published studies. More information on Oxiplex® is available on www.fziomed.com/spine.

“We are pleased that we now have nineteen out of 20 active sites around the US that are participating in this supportive study that will pave the way for US approval,” said John Krelle, President and CEO of FzioMed. “We anticipate full enrollment and study results by early 2020.”

Multiple US and OUS peer reviewed studies have demonstrated the benefits of Oxiplex® in a group of patients, who have higher levels of back and leg pain at baseline. These patients typically have an inferior outcome and commonly rely on additional methods of pain reduction for some time following an otherwise successful surgery. Oxiplex® is designed to reduce these levels of pain and give patients greater satisfaction with the overall results of their surgery.

The study is posted on www.Clinicaltrials.gov.
