Now the funding has been extended with the award of a second NIHR i4i grant of £1.2 million to fund the second phase of the clinical trial MAGIC2. This will be a larger study in 436 young patients with constipation to show that using mini-capsules in standard clinical practice can improve the success of available treatments. It will also develop new and more cost-effective ways to mass-produce the mini-capsules and create software capable to that can detect the mini-capsules automatically.
The multi-centre MAGIC2 clinical trial will be managed Derby Clinical Trials Support Unit (Derby CTSU), who are provisionally registered with the UKClinical Research Collaboration UKCRC), hosted by the University Hospitals of Derby & Burton NHS Foundation Trust.
