D-PLEX100 – PHASE 2 - SIGNIFICANT DECREASE IN THE RATE OF SSI IN ABDOMINAL SURGERIES
- Design: Accessor and patient blinded and double-arm randomized study
- Objective: safety and efficacy of D-PLEX100 + SoC (n=101) vs. SoC alone (n=100) in prevention of incision infection post-colorectal surgery
- Primary efficacy end-point: the decrease of infection rate as measured by the proportion of subjects with at least one abdominal incisional infection event, as determined by a blinded and independent adjudication committee, within 30 days post abdominal surgery.
Primary End Point - infections & mortality – 30 days
5 deaths in the SoC treatment arm, as compared to zero in the D-PLEX100 treatment arm
within the first 60 days post-surgery (p=0.029). 3 during the first 30 days
* PEP is the Combined SSI and mortality rate which is measured by the number and proportion of subjects with either an SSI event (as determined by the abdominal surgery) or mortality or any reason within 30 days post index surgery.
Note: The current standard of care for preventing SSIs involves the implementation of a range of treatment and prevention measures before, during and after surgery, including prophylactic antibiotic administration, antiseptic measures and wound care.
D-PLEX100 – PHASE 2 - ENCOURAGING EFFECT ON OVERALL STERNAL WOUND HEALING
- Design: Single-blinded and double-arm randomized study
- Objective: safety and efficacy of D-PLEX100 + SoC (n=60) vs. SoC alone (n=21) in prevention of sternal infection post-cardiac surgery
- Primary efficacy end-point: the decrease of infection rate as measured by the proportion of subjects with at least one sternal infection within 90 days post cardiac surgery
