  • Inguinal Hernia


Phase I/II, randomized, double-blind, comparator-controlled, dose-escalation study to assess the safety, PK, and efficacy of single postsurgical application of TLC590 compared with Naropin®

Study summary:

A Phase I/II, randomized, double-blind, comparator-controlled, dose-escalation study to assess the safety, PK, and efficacy of single postsurgical application of TLC590 compared with Naropin® via a single infiltrative local administration in adult subjects following inguinal hernia repair surgery. Approximately 64 evaluable subjects across 4 cohorts. Dose escalation of a single postsurgical administration of TLC590 or Naropin® will be performed. Dose escalation will be determined by review of treatment-related adverse events and all serious AEs by a safety monitoring committee.
