Pilot Study of OXP005 to Assess Gastroduodenal Irritation
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.
Oxford Pharmascience Ltd (the Sponsor) is developing a new naproxen tablet formulation (the study drug, OXP005), for the potential treatment of rheumatic and painful conditions. The study will compare the study drug to an already marketed formulation of prescription strength naproxen (Naprosyn® the reference product) by looking at the relative impact of both products on gastroduodenal (GD) irritation by performing a specialist procedure called an endoscopy (or more specifically, a gastroscopy). The safety and tolerability of the study drug will also be assessed.
