British Journal of Anaesthesia Published the Phase III Clinical Results of Adamgammadex.


HANGZHOU, China, November 28, 2023- Recently, British Journal of Anasthesia published the pivotal Phase III clinical results of adamgammadex.


This phase III clinical study is a multicentre, randomised, double-blind, positive-controlled, non-inferiority phase III clinical trial compared the efficacy and safety of adamgammadex and sugammadex. 310 subjects were randomized to receive adamgammadex (4 mg/ kg) or sugammadex (2 mg/ kg) at reappearance of the second twitch of the train-of-four (TOF), and results found that adamgammadex had a lower incidence of adverse drug reactions compared with sugammadex (anaphylactic reaction, recurarisation, decreased heart rate, and laryngospasm; P=0.047). The clinical results have demonstrated that adamgammadex was non-inferior to sugammadex with a possible lower incidence of adverse drug reactions compared with sugammadex. Adamgammadex may have a potential advantage in terms of its overall risk-benefit profile.
