Safety and Efficacy of CG53135-05 in the Prevention of Oral Mucositis in Patients Receiving Bone Marrow Transplant
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
CG53135-05, a recombinant human fibroblast growth factor-20 (rhFGF-20) protein, is under investigation for the prevention of oral mucositis. Oral mucositis is a commonly occurring side effect of high-dose chemotherapy in patients undergoing autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant. The objective of this Phase II trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of CG53135-05 when administered as a single dose to patients at risk for developing oral mucositis.
A Phase II, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial of the Safety and Efficacy of CG53135-05 Administered Intravenously as a Single Dose for the Prevention of Oral Mucositis in Patients Receiving Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant
