Papain Medical Research Studies

Up-to-date List of Papain Medical Research Studies

What Research is Being Done?

A clinical study involves research using human volunteers (also called participants) that is intended to add to medical knowledge. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies. Following list includes both interventional and observational studies.

Rank Status Study
1 Not yet recruiting Clinical Study of the Efficacy and Safety of the Application of Allogeneic Mesenchymal (Stromal) Cells of Bone Marrow, Cultured Under the Hypoxia in the Treatment of Patients With Severe Pulmonary Emphysema
Condition: Pulmonary Emphysema
Interventions: Biological: Mesenchymal stem cells;   Other: Reference therapy: 400 mL of 0.9% NaCl solution
Outcome Measures: Safety compared with placebo;   Change from baseline in the lung tissue density measured by CT-densitometry at6, 12, 24 months;   DLCO change from baseline at 6, 12, 24 months;   Change from baseline in the functional parameters (FEV1, TLC, RV, FEV1/FVC) at 6,12,18,24 months;   Dynamics of the physical capacity (by the 6-min test results);   Dynamics of the blood gas composition (PaO2, PaCO2);   Dynamics of serum level IL-6, TNF-α, Leptin;   Quality of life indices by the questionnaire (SF-36);   Number and frequency of exacerbations;   Body mass index

These studies may lead to new treatments and are adding insight into Papain etiology and treatment.

A major focus of Papain research is the development of new drugs and other treatment options. Studies seek to identify new drugs to treat various related disorders and to find safer, more effective doses for medications already being used. Other research is aimed at identifying receptors or drug targets.
