One hundred twenty patients are to be enrolled in this trial. Patients will be randomized 1:1. Patients in the study arm will receive iovera therapy in the index knee 3 – 7 days before total knee arthroplasty, while patients in the control arm will receive current standard of care (without the iovera therapy).
Dr. William M. Mihalko, M.D., who is the Principal Investigator in this trial, stated: "At Campbell Clinic, we carefully evaluate new technologies to solve challenging clinical issues, and to improve patient outcomes. I am very excited to begin enrolling patients in the iovera° study looking at reducing pain and narcotic use after total knee replacement. I look forward to seeing the data from this study, which I hope will confirm all our findings and experiences to date. We hope the iovera° technology will help us meet one of the significant needs today – reducing the reliance on opioid based pain medication after total knee replacement surgery."
Patients from six orthopedic surgeons’ practices at the Campbell Clinic will participate in this trial, which aims to show that the iovera° therapy can help in significantly reducing opioid consumption after total knee replacement independent of surgical practice.
Cary G. Vance, President and CEO of Myoscience, added “I am very excited to see that we are able to conduct this study at a renowned institution like the Campbell Clinic. Data from this study will demonstrate and confirm that the iovera° technology can be a solution to help address the opioid epidemic in our nation today.”
The iovera° treatment uses the body’s natural response to cold to treat peripheral nerves. A sensory nerve will stop sending pain signals immediately after receiving targeted cold therapy via the iovera° treatment. The effect on the nerve is transient, providing pain relief until the nerve regenerates and its sensory function is fully restored. This pain relief is achieved without the use of habit-forming drugs such as opioids.

ABOUT TOTAL KNEE ARTHROPLASTY
Total knee replacement is one option to relieve pain and to restore function to an arthritic knee. The most common reason for knee replacement is that other treatments (weight loss, exercise/physical therapy, medicines, and injections) have failed to relieve arthritis-associated knee pain.
The goal of knee replacement is to relieve pain, improve quality of life, and maintain or improve knee function. The procedure is performed on people of all ages, with the exception of children, whose bones are still growing. It is important to have significant pain and/or disability prior to considering this procedure. Because the replacement parts can break down over time, and healthcare providers generally recommend delaying knee replacement until it is absolutely necessary.
Approximately 700,000 knee replacement procedures are performed annually in the US. This number is projected to increase to 3.48 million procedures per year by 2030(1).1.

Myoscience to study opioid reduction in post-surgical knee patients; Patient Enrollment has commenced
October 25, 2017 - Read Press Release
“The iovera° technology has the potential to change the current paradigm of pain management for osteoarthritis”, said Dr. Vinod Dasa. “The patients that I have treated with this technology have experienced immediate and long-lasting pain relief; and are grateful to have an option that is non-narcotic and non-systemic.”The FDA clearance was based on a recent prospective, multi-center, sham-controlled, randomized, double-blind study of 180 subjects. The study concluded that patients treated with the iovera° device reported statistically significant greater reduction in pain and improvement in symptoms (p=0.001) when compared to patients who received the sham treatment (3). Also, patients who received the iovera° treatment reported pain relief lasting up to 90 days, accompanied by reduced stiffness and improved physical function.
Cary Vance, President and CEO of Myoscience, stated that “The addition of osteoarthritis to the indications for the iovera° treatment will help in extending our innovative non-opioid therapy to more patients, especially in the growing baby-boomer population. I anticipate this technology to become the non-narcotic and non-systemic solution of choice to manage knee pain.”The iovera° treatment uses the body’s natural response to cold to treat peripheral nerves. A sensory nerve will stop sending pain signals immediately after receiving targeted cold therapy via the iovera° treatment. The effect on the nerve is transient, providing pain relief until the nerve regenerates and its sensory function is fully restored. This pain relief is achieved without the use of habit-forming drugs such as opioids.

iovera° harnesses cold to block nerve signals and reduce painRedwood City, CA – September 24, 2014 myoscience announced today the launch of its iovera° system for the treatment of anterior and interior knee pain at three practices in the San Francisco Bay area: Remedy Medical Group, Fremont Holistic Center and California Spine Care. The iovera° system, cleared by the FDA to treat peripheral nerve pain, utilizes its patented Focused Cold Therapy™ delivery system to apply a controlled cold zone via a Smart Tip to specific nerves for precise and predictable pain relief. “We are pleased that these Bay Area pain specialists are joining the growing ranks of leading facilities in the nation offering the iovera° system for knee pain sufferers,” said Jeff Gold, myoscience President and Chief Operating Officer. “The iovera° treatment gives physicians the opportunity to safely address their patients’ peripheral nerve pain – the immediate result allows them to see the relief and the subsequent excitement first hand.” Frequent knee pain affects approximately 25% of adults, limits function and mobility, and impairs quality of life.1 Peripheral nerves treated with the iovera° system stop signaling pain for a set period of time, usually up to 3 months, after which their function is restored. Because peripheral nerve function is disrupted rather than destroyed, the treatment is safe, effective and temporary. “iovera° is unique in that it offers safe, highly targeted pain relief right at the peripheral nerve involved in a patient’s pain,” said David Smolins, M.D., Remedy Medical Group. “It’s exciting to see so many of my patients come in with debilitating knee pain and walk out of my office pain-free after their first iovera° treatment.” “Our patients are delighted to have the option of a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that specifically targets the area of pain,” said Santi Rao, M.D., California Spine Care. “We are finding that if patients can avoid or reduce their use of systemic medicines and their side effects, they prefer that option.” “Our patients are achieving immediate and sustained pain relief which allows them to comfortably pursue and make progress in physical therapy, but also, and perhaps more importantly, get back to the activities that matter most to them,” said Barry Shibuya, M.D, Founder and Medical Director, Fremont Holistic Center. The iovera° system delivers liquid nitrous oxide from a convenient and powerful handheld device to the closed-end probes of the Smart Tip during treatment. While this highly pressurized liquid travels from the hand piece to the Smart Tip, it undergoes a phase change and becomes very cold, drawing in heat energy from the surrounding tissue and forming a precise zone of cold at the targeted nerve. The gaseous nitrous oxide returns into the hand piece, leaving nothing behind in the body. This precise cold treatment causes a reversible nerve block based on a process called Wallerian degeneration. Pain is relieved in sensory nerves, which send messages to the central nervous system. Pain relief can last up to 3 months, at which time predictable restoration of nerve function occurs. About iovera° The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the iovera° system for use in peripheral nerves in January 2013. The iovera° system is being used most frequently for knee pain but can be used to treat pain in any peripheral nerve.

Bay Area Pain Specialists Freeze Out Knee Pain Becoming Among the First Clinics Nationwide to Offer the iovera° treatment

iovera˚ harnesses cold to block nerve signals and reduce painRedwood City, CA – July 16, 2014 myoscience announced today the launch of its iovera° system for the treatment of anterior and interior knee pain at the Louisiana State University (LSU) Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. The iovera° system utilizes its patented Focused Cold Therapy™ delivery system to direct a controlled cold dosage via closed-end probes to specific nerves for precise and predictable pain relief. “We are excited that LSU is among the first cutting edge orthopaedic facilities in the nation to offer the iovera° system for knee pain sufferers,” said Clint Carnell, myoscience CEO and iovera° developer. “iovera° gives physicians the opportunity to address their patients’ peripheral nerve pain in a very targeted way harnessing the natural power of cold to temporarily stop nerves from signalling and to deliver immediate toxin-free, drug-free pain relief.” Frequent knee pain affects approximately 25% of adults, limits function and mobility, and impairs quality of life.1 Peripheral nerves treated with the iovera° system stop signalling pain for a set period of time, usually up to 3 months, after which their function is fully restored. Because peripheral nerve function is disrupted rather than destroyed, the results are safe, effective and temporary. “This technology has the potential to change the current paradigm of acute and chronic pain management. The patients that I have treated are all grateful to have an option that is very safe and that has allowed them to get back to functionality quickly,” said Vinod Dasa, MD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Orthopaedics at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) School of Medicine in New Orleans, one of the first U.S. physicians to perform the procedure and to treat more than 60 patients. “Focused cold therapy offers reliable pain relief in areas such as the knee which may allow for physical therapy to proceed, and even reduce the need for systemic pain relievers.” The iovera° system delivers liquid nitrous oxide from a convenient and powerful handheld device to the closed-end probes of the Smart Tip during treatment. While this highly pressurized liquid travels from the hand piece to the Smart Tip, it undergoes a phase change and becomes very cold drawing in heat energy from the surrounding tissue and forming a precise zone of cold at the targeted nerve. The gaseous nitrous oxide returns into the hand piece, leaving nothing behind in the body. This precise cold treatment causes a reversible nerve block based on a process called Wallerian degeneration. Pain is relieved in sensory nerves, which send messages to the central nervous system. Pain relief can last up to 3 months, at which time predictable restoration of nerve function occurs.
