Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Efficacy of Penile Traction Therapy Using a Novel Device
Official Title  ICMJE Efficacy of Penile Traction Therapy Using a Novel Device: A Controlled, Single-blinded, Randomized Trial
Brief Summary This clinical trial is designed to assess the safety, dosing, and preliminary efficacy of a novel penile traction device on correcting deformities relating to Peyronie's disease, a condition which results in penile curvature and length loss. The trial is designed as a randomized, placebo-controlled study with men randomized to receiving no therapy or penile traction therapy 30 minutes once, twice, or three times daily. The study will occur over a 3 month period, after which an open label phase for 3 months will be conducted. Final assessments for adverse effects will also be assessed at 9 months.
Detailed Description Peyronie's disease (PD) is a fibrotic condition of the penis, affecting 1-13% of the US male population. The disease results in penile curvature and significant psychosocial bother. Current preferred therapies for PD include repeated penile injections with bacterial enzymes and surgery. However, these therapies are expensive and in some cases result in permanent reductions in penile length and sensation. Penile traction therapy (PTT) is a relatively newer treatment which has been proposed as a treatment for PD with preliminary data suggesting a potential role. However, currently available PTT devices are primarily designed for penile lengthening and have many significant limitations including a requirement of use for 9 hours daily and significant difficulties in personal application. Given these limitations, a new penile traction device (RestoreX® ) was created and funded through Mayo Ventures and was specifically designed to treat men with PD. The primary objective of the current study is to evaluate safety of the device using various dosing schedules, with secondary endpoints designed to assess efficacy and subjective outcomes. To accomplish the study, a population of men from Mayo Clinic with PD will be enrolled and will be randomized to utilize the device for varying amounts of time. Outcomes will be assessed at 3, 6, and 9 months, and results are to be used with the intent to publish in a scientific journal.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Not Applicable
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment
Intervention Model Description:
Men will be randomized into one of four groups: no traction therapy, penile traction 30 minutes once daily, penile traction 30 minutes twice daily, and penile traction 30 minutes three times daily. This treatment will continue for 3 months, after which men will enter an open label phase for 3 months. Primary and secondary outcomes will be evaluated at the completion of the 3 month and 6 month time points. Additional AEs will be assessed at 9 months after study initiation.
Masking: Double (Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description:
Objective outcomes including penile length and curvature will be masked for the investigator and outcome assessor by obtaining photographs of the penis in the lateral and dorsal planes. Curvatures will also be assessed by a clinician in the case where photographs are not able to be obtained or if the participant refuses photographs. These will be assessed without any knowledge as to which grouping the patient is located by two independent reviewers. If there are differences >5 degrees (curvature), or 0.5 cm (length), a 3rd individual will mediate the difference.
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Condition  ICMJE Penile Diseases
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Device: RestoreX PTT - randomized and open label
    Penile traction therapy in the straight and bent positions
  • Device: RestoreX PTT - open label phase only
    Penile traction therapy in the straight and bent positions
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Sham Comparator: Group 1 - Control
    No treatment will be administered for the initial 3 months. This are is necessary as Peyronie's disease may result in changes in length and curvature as a function of the disease process. After the 3 month period of time, this group will enter an open label phase where they may utilize a penile traction device if desired.
    Intervention: Device: RestoreX PTT - open label phase only
  • Experimental: Group 2 - PTT 1x daily x 3 months
    Men will utilize penile traction therapy for 30 minutes once daily for the initial 3 months. After this phase is completed, they will enter an open label phase for 3 months where they may utilize the device as much or as little as desired.
    Intervention: Device: RestoreX PTT - randomized and open label
  • Experimental: Group 3 - PTT 2x daily x 3 months
    Men will utilize penile traction therapy for 30 minutes twice daily for the initial 3 months. After this phase is completed, they will enter an open label phase for 3 months where they may utilize the device as much or as little as desired.
    Intervention: Device: RestoreX PTT - randomized and open label
  • Experimental: Group 4 - PTT 3x daily x 3 months
    Men will utilize penile traction therapy for 30 minutes three times daily for the initial 3 months. After this phase is completed, they will enter an open label phase for 3 months where they may utilize the device as much or as little as desired.
    Intervention: Device: RestoreX PTT - randomized and open label
