Decreased Desire Study Update

Monday, November 7th, 2016

Research volunteers truly do make a difference in this world.  It has been announced The Reconnect Studies, investigating bremelanotide as an on-demand treatment for premenopausal women diagnosed with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) has met the pre-specified co-primary efficacy endpoints in both Phase 3 clinical trials.

Palatin is developing bremelanotide as a subcutaneous, on-demand, as needed treatment for women who have not yet experienced menopause and have been diagnosed with HSDD.

“It was reported women using bremelanotide had clinically meaningful and statistically significant improvements in their desire and associated distress which are the defining clinical issues for an HSDD diagnosis,” said Carl Spana, Ph.D., President and CEO of Palatin.  He continued, “I am especially grateful to all of the women who volunteered to be a part of these studies.”

The CCRstudies team wishes to thank those women who came forward to participate in The Reconnect Study here in New London.  Dr. Robert Spitz served as the Primary Investigator of the study conducted at Coastal Connecticut Research, and Jessie Jellison Hatfield, LPN served as Study Coordinator.  We are truly grateful for all those who continually come forward to participate in research!

DPN Study

Monday, May 4th, 2015

Over half of all those living with Type II Diabetes will develop DPN.

DPN, or Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, is a condition that results due to chronically high blood sugar levels resulting in nerve damage.  Symptoms of DPN can include pain, numbness and tingling in the feet, discomfort, and burning sensations.  Due to nerve damage, complications can arise for the individual living with DPN.

Diabetes has been described as a global epidemic, with nearly 26 million Americans living with the condition. Poor diet, lack of exercise, and increasing obesity rates are often to blame for the Type II diabetes crisis in the US.

CCRstudies has been enrolling eligible volunteers for a study looking at the effectiveness of a nutritional food in the treatment of diabetic foot pain.  The nutritional therapy, Metanx, is a FDA approved medication containing a combination of the active forms of folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. These vitamins are said to work together to increase blood flow to the nerves.

Metanx differs from standard over the counter vitamins since it is considered a “medical food.” Medical foods have been specially formulated to address distinct nutritional requirements of a specific disease or condition. Metanx is only available by prescription.

The study team consists of Edward J. McDermott, Jr MD, Laurence Radin MD, Andrea Stewart, APRN, Diane Palmer, RN, CCRC, Jessie Jellison, LPN, CRC and Carol Alexandrescu, MS, CRC.

Those interested in learning more about the DPN study can call 860-443-4567.
