We're sorry, but this trial is no longer enrolling volunteers.

A Prospective, Single-blind, Randomized, Phase III Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Fibrin Sealant Grifols (FS Grifols) as an Adjunct to Hemostasis During Parenchymous Tissue Open Surgeries


The trial consisted of 2 parts: a Preliminary Part (I) and a Primary Part (II). All subjects enrolled in Preliminary Part (I) were treated with FS Grifols. Subjects in Primary Part (II) were randomly allocated in a 2:1 ratio to treatment with FS Grifols or manual compression. The objectives of the study were to evaluate the hemostasis effectiveness of FS Grifols in peripheral vascular surgery and to assess clinical safety, viral safety, and immunogenicity.


Phase 3 - a treatment has shown activity against a particular disease, where it is either added to existing treatment or compared to the standard treatment.
