Labor, Obstetric Clinical Trial
Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group, Dose-Finding Study to Evaluate the Effect of Continuous Infusion of Tafoxiparin as an Adjunct Treatment to Oxytocin for up to 36 Hours in Term Pregnant, Nulliparous Women to Treat Primary Slow Progress of Labor Including Prolonged Latent Phase and Labor Arrest
The study will be designed as a double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, dose-finding study with one group treated with placebo and three groups treated with tafoxiparin in three different infusion concentration levels, respectively. The intravenous infusion will be initiated by a pre-defined bolus dose infusion.
To assess the dose-response relationship of tafoxiparin on the labor time defined as the time from the start of continuous infusion of tafoxiparin/placebo as an Adjunct Treatment to Oxytocin, until partus in term-pregnant, nulliparous women requiring labor augmentation due to Primary Slow Progress of Labor including prolonged latent phase and Labor Arrest.
To assess the safety and efficacy of tafoxiparin based on the safety and secondary efficacy parameters evaluated in the protocol. PK (pharmacokinetic) response in pregnant women during labor.
