Anti-Inflammatory Back Pain Injection Seeks FDA Approval

 

After years of research, an injection could provide relief to patients suffering from acute spine, neck, and leg injuries, NVIV plan to market a product in a big way. That is why this anti-inflammatory back pain injection seeks FDA approval for administering a drug to develop treatments for herniated disks and other neurological injuries. The injection contains molecules of Methylprednisolone, an anti-inflammatory drug, which when injected into the body helps to provide relief. This hydrogel-based treatment is recommended to be effective for spinal and other neurological injuries. We hope that this treatment will be helpful to millions of patients suffering such pain. This news article explores the treatment.

Certain anti-inflammatory injections have been proven to help with back pain

Cambridge-based InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (NVIV), which develops treatments for spinal cord injuries (SCI) and other neurological injuries, has requested to meet with the FDA for its second product this year, a hydrogel-based treatment of acute and sub-acute neck, back, and leg pain conditions.

 

The product is specifically intended for sciatica or radicular pain of the low back and legs and acute and sub-acute radicular pain of the neck or arms, which affect more than 4.2 million patients annually in the U.S., according to a statement. It consists of an injectable compound which slowly releases a number of molecules, including methylprednisolone, an anti-inflammatory drug. A summary of the research was published in the Journal of Biomaterials in January.

 

“For years, InVivo has been pressed by patients like myself to develop treatments for herniated disks and other neurological pain issues associated with the aging baby boomers in the United States, and now we have an answer in InVivo’s hydrogel platform,” said InVivo CEO Frank Reynolds in the statement. “We believe that the opportunity for our new treatment could exceed $22 billion annually, and by late 2012, we plan to partner with a global leader in pain therapies to bring this product to market.”
