NANTONG CITY, China, March 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sinobiopharma, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SNBP) is pleased to announce that its patented version of Cisatracurium besylate, a pre-surgical skeletal muscle relaxant marketed as Kutai in China, has successfully concluded its Phase IV Clinical Study.
The multi-center Phase IV Clinical Study investigated the safety and effectiveness of Kutai's use at room temperature. The after-market study, supported by the National Multi-center Clinical plan, was concluded successfully on September 2, 2008.
More than 30 clinical experts from seven participating medical centers within China gathered in Nanjing for a conference to review the results of the Phase IV of the Kutai Multi-center clinical study project.
Ms. Xinming Wu, Chief anesthetist of No.1 Hospital of Chinese Peking University Anesthesia Department, presided over the conference and delivered a summary report of the Phase IV project. Xuejun Chen, Sinobiopharma's vice president of sales was also in attendance and expressed Sinobiopharma's thanks to the participating experts for their commitment to research on Kutai.
Sinobiopharma has established a highly specialized professional team of clinical trial monitors as part of the project to keep close surveillance on the patients. The manager of Sinobiopharma's Clinical Research Department, Mr. Lei Wang, reported on the Phase IV project clinical monitoring outcomes.
The experts' consensus was that the Phase IV study established Kutai as safe and effective for room temperature storage. The year-long clinical research project showed no significant differences between Kutai and imported Cisatracurium besylate, and no significant differences for Kutai safety and effectiveness when stored at either room temperature or a lower temperature.
All the participating parties followed the study design and promote inter-communication to ensure compliance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP).
