Table 5: Adverse Events (AEs) Reported in ≥ 3% of
the Combined Clinical Trial Population of 3 Multicenter US Trials by Treatment
|SRP + Vehicle
|SRP + ARESTIN®
|Number (%) of Patients Treatment-emergent AEs||62.4%||71.9%||68.1%|
|Total Number of AEs||543||589||987|
|Mucous Membrane Disorder||2.4%||0.8%||3.3%|
The change in clinical attachment levels was similar across all study arms, suggesting that neither the vehicle nor ARESTIN® compromise clinical attachment.
