 Active Control, Double-blind, Double-dummy, Parallel-group, Randomized Study to Assess the Effect of VECAM 40/300, Administered at Bedtime, vs. Esomeprazole 20 mg, Administered 30-60 Min. Before Dinner, on Daytime and Nighttime GERD Symptoms

The study is designed to assess the effect and safety of oral administration of VECAM 40/300 administered at bedtime compared to Esomeprazole 20 mg administered 30-60 minutes before dinner, for control of nighttime and daytime HB and other 24 hour GERD symptoms.

The rational for the study is based on the contention that VECAM exhibits potent inhibition of acid secretion and because of its mechanism of action, it can be administered at bedtime without food. Such timing of drug dosing will allow effective inhibition of nighttime acid secretion. Because of its mechanism of action, VECAM exhibits improved 24-hour inhibition of acid secretion and hence, its bedtime administration will not compromise its effect during the daytime. This improved control of acid secretion will predictably result in better control of nighttime as well as daytime heartburn (HB) symptoms.

 A Phase I Double-blind, Randomized, Comparator-controlled Study of the Safety and Tolerability of N-acetylcysteine Plus Mesalamine Enema in Subjects With Left-sided Ulcerative Colitis

This Phase I study will be a closely monitored trial of a small number of subjects to establish, preliminarily, the tolerability and safety of two ALTH12 enema formulations: ALTH12-1:4 and ALTH12-2:4. The study will be conducted in two parts. The first part will be the assessment of the safety and tolerability of a single dose of ALTH12-1:4 or the comparator, mesalamine (4.0g 5-ASA) followed by an assessment of repeated administrations of study drug (ALTH12-1:4 or comparator) for 6 weeks. The second part will be the same assessment for ALTH12-2:4. Three subjects will be enrolled in each cohort: 2 to receive ALTH12 enema therapy and 1 subject to receive comparator enema therapy. A total of up to 9 patients will be enrolled in this study, allowing for up to 3 replacement or additional patients.
