About

The study team is seeking a novel treatment for snoring involving local application of a nerve stimulant medication, neostigmine. In this study, neostigmine will be injected into 5 sites of the soft palate during a standard procedure, drug-induced sleep endoscopy, to evaluate the effect on snoring.

Full description

Snoring is a major problem, affecting 40 million Americans. The disease affects patient and partner sleep quality as well as daytime function. Snoring treatment is limited by device compliance (mouth appliance, positive airway pressure) and insurance does not regularly pay for these devices. Surgical treatment for snoring has mixed results. As a result, there is an important need to develop new treatments for snoring. The study team is seeking a novel treatment for snoring involving local application of a nerve stimulant medication, neostigmine. In this study, neostigmine will be injected into 5 sites of the soft palate during a standard procedure, drug-induced sleep endoscopy, to evaluate the effect on snoring. If successful, development of a topical (non-injectable) version of this drug will be considered, so that the patient can apply him/herself before bedtime.

Trial design

1 participants in 1 patient group

Drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) with Neostigmine
Experimental group
Description:
Artificial sleep will be induced by intravenous administration of propofol with micro boluses until clinical sleep is achieved with spontaneous respiration and observed apneas under monitored anesthesia care. Endoscopy will be performed with visualization on a monitor and recording on a digital recorder. After the patient demonstrates snoring and obstruction collapse, the patient will receive the study medication (neostigmine methylsulfate 1mg/mL) into the soft palate.
Treatment:
Drug: Neostigmine Methylsulfate
