Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Recombinant Human Relaxin (rhRlx) in Pregnant Women Scheduled for Induction of Labor
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase II Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Group Study of the Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Efficacy of Intravenous Recombinant Human Relaxin (rhRlx) in Pregnant Women Scheduled for Induction of Labour
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of rhRlx for cervical ripening, when compared to a placebo.
Detailed Description A multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose escalation study of healthy female subjects at ≥ 40 weeks gestation and who are scheduled for induction. A dose-escalation portion of the study is followed by a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled portion of the study. The endpoints include cervical ripening, as well as progression to labor and delivery.
