UPDATE: BIG "O" FDA TRIAL at NYC

Posted by Jen on 11/15/02 at 15:37 (100297)

Here is some info. I got from the doctor visit:
It is of HIGH enery procedure, so it will be done only once.
Patient will get a local aneasthesia block PLUS an IV, and it makes the patient to sleep during the procedure.
If you do not get the real treatment, then they'll offer you the treatment at REDUCED FEE - about $1ooo. Time: early next year when the trial is completed.
I am not a candidate for this trial, according to him, because of my case in not typical and clear cut.
Hope this can of help to some.

Is the trial finished yet. How many patients do they need to complete their orbasone study.
