BEDFORD, TX, Feb. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Invaron Pharmaceuticals Inc. clinical
partner, the Center for Assisted Reproduction (CARE), led by Kevin
Doody M.D., today initiated an investigator led, IRB approved Phase III
study using INVOcellTM in patients with tubal blockage or unexplained infertility that require
in vitro fertilization.
INVOcellTM is an innovative medical device used in infertility treatment which
enables conception and early embryo development to occur within a
woman's own body rather than in a laboratory. "The primary focus of
the study will be to first evaluate the comfort and retention of the
system over 5 days to ensure that INVOcellTM performs similarly to existing 3 day retention data," remarked Dr.
Kevin Doody. "We will then examine how INVOcellTM compares to conventional IVF in an open label extension, examining the
quality day 5 embryos, known as blastocysts, and ultimately pregnancy
and live birth rates".
"We are excited at the prospect of partnering with CARE and Dr. Kevin
Doody as part of our Phase III/IV clinical program in the United States
and Canada," said Jason Broome, President and COO of Invaron
Pharmaceuticals. "IVF is increasingly utilizing day 5 embryo culture
and this data will ultimately serve to broaden the use of INVOcellTM".
