TRILURON

Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A.

INDICATION FOR USE: Treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in
patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative nonpharmacologic therapy, and to simple analgesics, e.g., acetaminophen

DESCRIPTION:

  • Viscous solution consisting of a high molecular weight (500,000–730,000 daltons) fraction of purified sodium hyaluronate (Hyalectin®) in buffered
    physiological sodium chloride, having a pH of 6.8-7.
  • The sodium hyaluronate is extracted from rooster combs
  •  Hyaluronic acid is a natural complex sugar of the glycosaminoglycan family and is a long-chain polymer containing repeating disaccharide units of Naglucuronate-N-acetylglucosamine
  • Administered by intra-articular injection

EFFECTIVENESS AND SAFETY:

  • Retrospective analysis of data prospectively collected from two randomized, controlled trials to determine the effectiveness of TRILURON vs. Hyalgan (control device)
  • Both have identical chemical formulation and differ only in that a lower
    dose is injected (3 weekly injections for TRILURON™ compared to 5 weekly injections of Hyalgan)
  • Primary effectiveness endpoint: Mean change from baseline at 26 weeks in WOMAC Pain scores: TRILURON was non-inferior to Hyalgan
  • Primary evidence of safety of Hyalgan is directly applicable to TRILURON and has already been established

REG PATHWAY: PMA

  • Device Procode: MOZ
