enzyme injections

How can I get into a clinical trial in the U.S. for enzyme injections (clostridial collagenase) for DC? Is this procedure already approved in other countries (preferably Canada or Mexico)? If so, who are the doctors/clinics where this is used?

Injectable Collagenase

Injectable Collagenase is now (finally) entering the final phase III FDA approved clinical trials in the US and Europe. I have contacted both BioSpecifics and Auxilium for the locations and contact info for the trial sites. So far I have nothing to report.

Being a subject is not easy, as it required a number of repeat visits for study of the effects. It is not available outside the limited number of study sites. It will be at least two years before final FDA approval.

Meanwhile I would recommend NA for all who are in need of treatment and wish to avoid traditional Open Surgery.

Re: enzyme injections

I have access to a site for physicians that lists studies for our patients.

The enzyme study is fully enrolled and they are not taking more patients

Hey guys

I got an important tip about the collagenase trials..Rumor has it that in the next 3-4 months the trials will start up again and I have the name of a doctor in the minneapolis area who will be participating.
I hope my information here is good...because I will feel so silly if I am wrong. The doctors name is Dr. Scott McPherson (sp?)
I have an appointment with him on the 19th.
Take care and email me if you need more information...I do not like to advertise peoples phone numbers on the net so just shoot me an email.
