Macrolane VRF30 for Enhancement of Shape and Fullness of Female Breast (COBRA)

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Q-Med AB
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01299532
First received: February 16, 2011
Last updated: November 8, 2013
Last verified: February 2011
  Purpose
This is an open, multi-center, non comparative study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Macrolane VRF30 in the female breast. 71 subjects have received initial treatment with a maximum of 120 ml of Macrolane VRF30 per breast. 22 patients have received a re-injection (max 120 ml/breast) of Macrolane nine months after initial treatment. Patients are followed for 24 months after last treatment.

Condition Intervention Phase
Breast Enhancement Device: Macrolane VRF30 Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Official Title: An Open, Multi-center Study Evaluating Efficacy and Safety of Macrolane VRF30 for Enhancement of the Shape and Fullness of the Female Breast

Further study details as provided by Q-Med AB:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Perceived improvement of shape and fullness of the female breast compared to baseline as judged by the subject using GEIS. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the safety as documented by physical examination, mammography, ultrasonography and by adverse events reported. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • To evaluate adverse experiences occurring during the first 2 weeks post treatment as recorded in the diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
  • to study the implant duration and localization as documented by MRI. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • to evaluate esthetic improvement of shape and fullness as judged by an independent evaluator, by the investigator and by the subject using GEIS. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • to evaluate the subjects satisfaction with her breast and general appearance using a subject questionnaire. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • to evaluate pain experience during injection under local anesthesia. [ Time Frame: during injection ]
  • To evaluate any difficulties with the interpretation of the mammography image(s)or ultrasonography due to the presence of the implant 24 months after the initial treatment [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To evaluate the safety documented by physical examination and by adverse events reported up to 24 months after re-treatment and by mammography and ultrasonography examinations 15 and 39 months after re-treatment. [ Time Frame: 39 months ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To evaluate any difficulties with the interpretation of the mammography image(s) or ultrasonography due to the presence of the implant 24 and 48 months after the initial treatment (15 and 39 months after the re-treatment). [ Time Frame: 48 months ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To evaluate adverse experiences occurring during the first 2 weeks post re-treatment as recorded in the diary. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To study the implant duration and localization as documented by MRI up to 24 months after re-treatment. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To evaluate esthetic improvement of shape and fullness as judged by an independent evaluator, by the investigator and by the subject using GEIS up to 24 months after re-treatment. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To evaluate, up to 24 months after re-treatment, the subjects satisfaction with her breast and general appearance using a subject questionnaire. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To evaluate pain experience during re-injection under local anaesthesia. [ Time Frame: During re-injection ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To evaluate if there are differences in esthetic improvement, subject satisfaction and implant duration, after re-treatment compared to after initial treatment. The visits up to 9 months will be compared. [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To compare esthetic improvement, subject satisfaction and implant duration at 24 months after last treatment between subjects that have received only one treatment and subjects that have received re-treatment. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • Re-treatment phase: To compare esthetic improvement, subject satisfaction and implant duration at 12 and 24 months after initial treatment between subjects that have received only one treatment and subjects that have received re-treatment. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
