LONDON, May 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Norgine B.V. today presented new post-hoc analyses fromthe phase III DAYB and MORA studies that demonstrate the high-quality cleansing efficacy of PLENVU®, a low volume, 1 litre PEG and ascorbate bowel preparation when compared to sodium picosulfate with magnesium citrate (CITRAFLEET®)

High cleansing efficacy:
Improved cleansing (Boston Bowel Preparation Scale) in evening only dosing when compared to sodium picosulfate with magnesium citrate;
PLENVU® has been shown to be well tolerated in studies versus standard 2 litre PEG with ascorbate, sodium picosulfate with magnesium citrate and trisulfate solution.,,
Dr Alastair Benbow, Chief Development & Medical Officer, Norgine commented "These phase III data confirm the potential of PLENVU®, a low volume bowel preparation to replace standard bowel preparations. As colonoscopy is considered one of the most effective colorectal screening procedures, use of a highly efficacious bowel preparation such as PLENVU® is important to enable better detection of adenomas and polyps which ultimately will improve patients outcomes and save healthcare systems resources."
These data were presented at Digestive Diseases Week, 6-9 May 2017, Chicago.
The PLENVU® Phase III clinical trial programme includes three multicentre, randomised, parallel group studies: NOCT, MORA, and DAYB.
Colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related mortality in Europe and the US, with 412,000 new diagnoses of colorectal cancer every year in Europe and 136,115 in the US.,
PLENVU® data being presented at DDW on Saturday 6 May, 12:00 CDT
In August 2016, Norgine entered into a licensing agreement with Valeant Pharmaceuticals for PLENVU® in the US and Canada.
PLENVU® is not yet approved for use in the US or Europe. Norgine anticipates regulatory approval in Europe in 2017 and in 2018 in the US.
