Brief Summary:

This is a Phase I, prospective, active-controlled, randomized, open-label, clinical trial designed to assess the safety and tolerability of single intra-articular injection of RegenoGel-SP for the treatment of OA.

RegenoGel-SP is composed of fibrinogen in plasma linked to a high molecular weight HA. The viscoelastic properties resulting from the combination of these two natural macromolecules is further enhanced by joint surface associated factors to generate a viscoelastic gel with superior stability and mechanical integrity.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Osteoarthritis Device: intra-articular administration of RegenoGel-SP or hyaluronic acid (HA) Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Eighteen subjects will be randomized and sequentially assigned to RegenoGel-SP or to hyaluronic acid (HA) treatments on a 2:1 basis, respectively. Treatment groups will be assigned as per a randomization list that will be prepared prior to the start of the study. Randomization will be done at Enrollment (Visit 2). Neither surgeon nor subject will be blinded to treatment. Subjects will be monitored for 6 months following treatment. Following signing the Informed Consent form (Visit 1), subjects who conform to the inclusion criteria will answer questionnaires for grading of their symptoms, pain level and overall functional performance. Subjects will be evaluated for vital signs, blood hematology, chemistry, INR, aPTT and ECG, and will be subjected to a 30-40ml blood withdrawal that will be used for the production of autologous RegenoGel-SP. Subjects randomized to receive RegenoGel-SP will receive a single, intra-articular injection (Visit 2), while subjects randomized to receive HA treatment (Euflexxa®) will be injected with 3 intra-articular weekly injections of (Visits 2-4). Subjects treated with RegenoGel-SP will attend visits 3 and 4 but will not receive treatment. All subjects will return for Observation visits after 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months following treatment (Visits 5-7). During treatment and observation visits, subjects will be monitored for safety parameters (local and systemic AEs, blood work analysis ) and response to treatment using the above questionnaires.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: RegenoGel SP 2ml

RegenoGel-SP is a new viscosupplement intended for the intra-articular treatment of OA.

Following signing the Informed Consent form (Visit 1), subjects who conform to the inclusion criteria will be evaluated for vital signs, blood hematology, chemistry, INR, aPTT and ECG, and will be subjected to a 30-40ml blood withdrawal that will be used for the production of autologous RegenoGel-SP. Subjects randomized to receive RegenoGel-SP will receive a single, intra-articular injection (Visit 2).

Device: intra-articular administration of RegenoGel-SP or hyaluronic acid (HA)
Intra-articular Injection: single injection of RegenoGel SP or 3 injections of HA




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 6 month following RegenoGel injection ]

    Incidence, relatedness, and severity of treatment-emergent SAEs, UAEs, AEs in the 2 treatment arms.

    Supportive safety measures:

    • Local safety outcomes (presence of erythema, edema, swelling, effusion, pain, sensitivity in the treated knee)
    • Global clinical assessment
    • Pain assessment
    • Percentage of subjects who discontinued the study due to AEs
    • Laboratory tests (haematology, blood chemistry, INR, aPTT), ECG and vital signs


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy assessment [ Time Frame: 6 month following RegenoGel injection ]
    • Change in pain in the affected knee joint in response to treatments using the Visual Analog Score (VAS).
    • Change in the subject´s activity in response to treatments based on the WOMAC evaluation form.
    • Change in quality of life at baseline in response to treatments using the SF-36v2 health survey.
    • Change in joint space width using standard X-ray in response to treatments
