Botox Clinical Trial

I receive a fair few emails asking about clinical trials and in the past there hasn't been an awful lot to report. However regular readers will know that there is some excitement around collagenase (xiaflex) studies that are currently ongoing. I will of course keep you posted on when new places open up on these trials.

I mostly concentrate on the UK in this blog, but looking at the analytics stats reveals that many US visitors find their way here too. As such, I will attempt to offer details regarding US studies too as it is bound to be of use to some of you.

With that in mind I thought I'd pointout that there is a Phase II Botox study in Texas that is still recruiting at Baylor College of Medicine,
Houston, Texas (according to the study page):
http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00812838?term=peyronies&rank=5

Please check out the page thoroughly to see if you meet the inclusion criteria. From a personal perspcetive, I'm unsure of how Botox would be helpful to peyronie's disease sufferers, but I'm placing it here anyway, as it's worth exploring all options and informing visitors of all current opportunities of this kind. The AA4500 (Xiaflex) study is also still listed as recruiting on the site: http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show?term=peyronies&rank=1 so it might be worth contacting them for further information.
