This is a randomized, double-blind pivotal study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of CosmetaLife injectable dermal filler for the correction of wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (i.e., smile lines).

Condition Intervention Phase
Facial Wrinkles Device: CosmetaLife Device: Restylane Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Multicenter Comparison of the Safety and Efficacy of CosmetaLife™ Versus Control for the Correction of Nasolabial Folds

Further study details as provided by Cosmeta:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale [ Time Frame: baseline and 6 months ]
    To determine if the mean change in the 5-point Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale (WSRS) score at 6 months was non-inferior to the contralateral Control Restylane treated side, where on this 5-point scale 1 has no measurable nasolabial fold, 2 has some fold, 3 has moderate fold, 4 has heavier moderate fold, and a 5 has deep to a very deep nasolabial fold. For this study only moderate nasolabial folds were included (i.e., 3 or 4), where subjects scored as 5 were excluded.

  • Adverse Event Reporting [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and Effectiveness of CosmetaLife at 3, 9 and 12 Months [ Time Frame: 3, 9 and 12 months ]

Enrollment: 145
Study Start Date: October 2006
Study Completion Date: March 2008
Primary Completion Date: September 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: CosmetaLife
Test Article was given at start and two week follow up if necessary, up to a maximum dose of 2 cc to achieve optimal correction as determined by investigator.
Device: CosmetaLife
Dermal filler
Active Comparator: Restylane
Control Article was given at start and two week follow up if necessary, up to a maximum dose of 2 cc to achieve optimal correction as determined by investigator.
Device: Restylane
Dermal filler

Detailed Description:
Patients with negative reaction skin test results will be randomized to receive CosmetaLife in one nasolabial fold and Control in the nasolabial fold on the opposite side of the face (split face design). Each subject will serve as his or her own control, allowing for comparison of the outcome between the contralateral sides. Patients will be followed at 2 weeks and 3, 6, 9 and 12 months post treatment for assessment of safety and effectiveness.
