Study of Autologous Neo-Bladder Construct in Subjects With Neurogenic Bladder Following Spinal Cord Injury

This study has been terminated.
(24 months follow up completed without substantial change to the profile.)

First received: August 3, 2007
Last updated: May 11, 2015
Last verified: May 2015
Subjects with neurogenic bladder secondary to spinal cord injury that is refractory to medical treatment and requires augmentation cystoplasty will be enrolled. The hypothesis is that augmentation cystoplasty using an autologous neo-bladder construct will reduce maximum detrusor pressure.

Condition Intervention Phase
Neurogenic Bladder Device: Autologous neobladder construct Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open Label Multicenter Study of Augmentation Cystoplasty Using an Autologous Neo-Bladder Construct in Subjects With Neurogenic Bladder Following Spinal Cord Injury

Further study details as provided by Tengion:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Maximum Detrusor Pressure From Baseline to 12 Months [ Time Frame: baseline and 12 months ]
    Detrusor pressure is measured using urodynamic testing, which involves inserting a catheter through the urethra and into the bladder and measuring the pressure in the bladder as it is filled with fluid. The primary outcome measure for this study was the change in the maximum pressure observed during bladder filling from baseline to 12 months. The goal of the therapy was to decrease pressure.

  • Overall Safety Profile - Number of Participants Experiencing an Adverse Event [ Time Frame: through month 12 ]
    Clinical evaluation of adverse events, laboratory parameters and urinary imaging to assess any safety issues emerging from this technology and to allow a comparison of a safety profile with standard of care enterocystoplasty. Please refer to adverse event section for detailed information.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Urodynamic Measurements and Long Term Safety [ Time Frame: month 12 through month 60 ]
