Condition prevention of pregnancy
Treatments scu300a iub intrauterine device, t380a iud
Phase phase 2/phase 3
Sponsor Ocon Medical Ltd.
Start date May 2014
End date January 2016
Trial size 363 participants
Trial identifier NCT02036177, AOS-2000-04


The SCu300A IUB™ (hereafter IUB™) will be evaluated for safety and effectiveness in comparison with a market approved standard T shaped IUD containing 380sq.mm. of copper:

Comparison of objective parameters - Pregnancy rate, perforation, expulsion and malposition rates, changes in the endometrial thickness, rate of complications such as infection and anemia and discontinuation rates after 1 year.

Comparison of Subjective parameters - pain during insertion, menstrual characteristics and pain, bleeding in correlation to the bleeding pattern prior to insertion.

Physician opinion: ease of use in insertion and removal. Subject satisfaction.

It is expected that subjects using the copper IUB will demonstrate less safety events, equal effectiveness and equal or improved menstrual bleeding and pain related profiles compared with users of the T shaped copper IUD.
