Safety study to assess the 3 mg/mL baclofen injection (intrathecal) using a programmable pump

Clinical Details

Official title: Study to Assess the Safety of 3 mg/mL Gablofen« (Baclofen Injection) Delivered by Intrathecal Administration Using the Synchromed« II Programmable Infusion System

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: The rate of inflammatory granulomas in patients given 3 mg/mL Gablofen® (baclofen injection) 3mg/mL by the intrathecal route of administration.

Secondary outcome: Overall safety of 3 mg/mL Gablofen® (baclofen injection) given by the intrathecal route of administration

Detailed description: This is a prospective 36-month Phase IIIb/IV clinical safety trial that will be conducted at clinical trial sites that are experienced with the use of intrathecal baclofen. All patients will be entered after signing an IRB approved informed consent. Patients will be followed for the duration of their treatment with Gablofen« (baclofen injection) 3 mg/mL using the SynchroMed« II Programmable Pump or until the study is terminated. Patients will be evaluated for clinical complications associated with the use of intrathecal baclofen that are considered signs and symptoms of an inflammatory granuloma, specifically new radicular pain at the level of the catheter tip, and/or spinal cord compression. An MRI scan with and without infusion will be performed (with consent of the patient) to evaluate the potential presence of an inflammatory granuloma if clinical signs exist. Events that may be related to an inflammatory granuloma will be classified as a definite granuloma, possible granuloma, other catheter related problem (confirmed not caused by a granuloma), or other clinical sequelae caused by the underlying disease or other infusion system related event.


Minimum age: 4 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.
