Drug Information available for: Azficel-T

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Active Biological: Autologous Human Fibroblasts (azficel-T)
  1. Collection of biopsy from palate
  2. Papillary priming procedure
  3. Seven injection treatments to target sites
  4. Performance of study assessments (investigator and subject)
Other Name: LAVIV




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Responders Based on the Average Investigator Evaluation of Change From Baseline for All Treated Areas on the Global Ordinal Rating Scale (GORS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (prior to first study treatment) compared to six months after first treatment ]
    A patient was considered a responder in this outcome measure if the average Investigator's GORS score for all treatment areas was greater than 0. On the GORS, a score of -2 (much worsening from baseline) was the worst and +2 (great improvement from baseline) was the best.

  2. Number of Responders Based on the Average Patient Evaluation of Change From Baseline for All Treated Areas on the Global Ordinal Rating Scale (GORS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (prior to first study treatment) compared to six months after first treatment ]
    A patient was considered a responder in this outcome measure if the average patient's GORS score for all treatment areas was greater than 0. On the GORS, a score of -2 (much worsening from baseline) was the worst and +2 (great improvement from baseline) was the best.
