Bontril PDM (Phendimetrazine Tartrate) - Summary

 
 



BONTRIL PDM SUMMARY

BONTRIL PDM (phendimetrazine tartrate) is a sympathomimetic amine with pharmacological activity similar to the prototype drugs of this class used in obesity, the amphetamines.

Bontril® PDM (phendimetrazine tartrate) is indicated in the management of exogenous obesity as a short term adjunct (a few weeks) in a regimen of weight reduction based on caloric restriction. The limited usefulness of agents of this class (see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY) should be measured against possible risk factors inherent in their use such as those described below.

Clinical Trials Related to Bontril PDM (Phendimetrazine)

Reinforcing Effects of Cocaine During Phendimetrazine Maintenance [Recruiting]
This study will determine the initial efficacy of phendimetrazine as a pharmacotherapy for cocaine dependence. A rigorous, inpatient human laboratory study will be conducted in which the subjective, physiological and reinforcing effects of cocaine are evaluated during maintenance on placebo and phendimetrazine.

Phendimetrazine and Cocaine [Recruiting]
This study will determine the safety and tolerability of phendimetrazine (Bontril«) as a pharmacotherapy for cocaine use disorder. A rigorous, inpatient human laboratory study will be conducted in which the subjective and physiological effects of cocaine are evaluated during maintenance on placebo and phendimetrazine.

Stemcells for Radiation Induced Xerostomia [Enrolling by invitation]
The current study aims to assess the safety and feasibility of the injection of autologous adipost tissue derived MSCs on radiation-induced salivary gland hypofunction and xerostomia in head and neck cancer participants. The project can potentially help to develop a clinically relevant treatment option for the growing number of patients suffering from xerostomia after radiotherapy. The development of new therapies is especially important, since only sub-optimal symptomatic treatments are currently available and the symptom of xerostomia greatly reduces the quality of life.

Efficacy of Natural Vitamin E Tocotrienol on the Treatment of Surgical Scars [Recruiting]
The overall goal of this study is to determine the efficacy of tocotrienol (TCT), a natural form of vitamin E, in preventing or reducing scar formation in human skin wounds as well as the basal levels of TCT in normal human skin and adipose tissue.
