PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InvisiDerm Healthcare ("InvisiDerm"), developer and manufacturer of noninvasive gas and drug delivery methods, announced the completion of the initial clinical study using its innovative D`Oxyva® transdermal delivery platform. The company has submitted the results to a peer-reviewed medical journal for publication in Q1 2013.
The study explored and demonstrated InvisiDerm's successful transdermal delivery of carbon dioxide directly to the body tissues, where it is believed to stimulate greater oxygen-rich capillary blood flow. The study protocol included the use of skin perfusion pressure readings taken by the FDA-approved Vasamed Sensilase® vascular measurement system as an indicator of carbon dioxide delivery.
The clinical trial results reflected outstanding and effective transdermal carbon dioxide delivery in both diabetic and non-diabetic patients. Not only was the response rate remarkably high, but the efficacy observed was beyond what has been reported in previous trials employing different transdermal delivery platforms. Detailed results will be forthcoming upon journal publication of the study findings.
The study's principal investigator was Dr. Lee Rogers, Co-Medical Director of the Amputation Prevention Center at Valley Presbyterian Hospital in Van Nuys, CA. As a specialist in diabetes-related lower-extremity complications and diabetic limb salvage, Dr. Rogers focuses on conditions such as diabetic ulcers and non-healing wounds caused by microcirculation and tissue oxygenation deficiencies. These conditions may be positively impacted by transdermal delivery of carbon dioxide.
Marking the significance of InvisiDerm's D`Oxyva® study, Dr. Rogers has commented, "Successful transdermal delivery of high concentration molecular carbon dioxide has exciting implications for treating many conditions resulting from poor blood flow, which have unfortunately become prevalent with today's modern lifestyle."
Dr. Rogers also noted that research findings in recent years have led to an increased understanding of the importance of microcirculatory health in preventing and reversing disease states such as sepsis, non-healing wounds leading to amputation, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, inflammation, metabolic syndrome, sexual dysfunction, and age-related syndromes.
"We anticipate that positive results on this initial clinical study will capture significant attention in the field and open up many avenues for new treatments based on increased oxygen-rich blood flow," stated Dr. Rogers.
In addition to InvisiDerm's immediate focus on its regenerative capillary blood flow therapy, the Company is exploring further research into its technology platform as a multi-purpose transdermal drug delivery method. InvisiDerm plans to work with pharmaceutical products that can benefit from D`Oxyva®'s non-invasive delivery mechanism, including an upcoming clinical trial of the feasibility of using the technology for drug delivery in veterinary medicine applications.
InvisiDerm CEO Norbert Kiss stated, "We are not only excited about the results we have seen with D`Oxyva®'s transdermal delivery of carbon dioxide, but also about the potential to revolutionize drug delivery across the board."
InvisiDerm's growth from a pre-revenue medical technology startup to an active company with an advanced clinical evaluation program has triggered further efforts to emphasize its position as a leader in the transdermal industry. As such, the Company has introduced a new website, utilizing an updated branding and messaging strategy. The new messaging rests on three key areas of application for the treatment: medical, beauty/skin care, and sports performance.
