Oxycodone-naloxone in Relieving Opioid-related Constipation
The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that subjects with moderate to severe non-malignant pain taking oxycodone/naloxone prolonged release tablets have improvement in symptoms of constipation compared to subjects taking oxycodone prolonged release tablets alone.
Patients with a documented history of moderate to severe non-malignant pain that require around the clock opioid therapy will be randomised to an oxycodone or an oxycodone-naloxone treatment arm to assess the safety and efficacy of oxycodone/naloxone prolonged release compared to oxycodone prolonged-release in relieving opioid-related constipation.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Tablets coated with material that delays release of the medication until after they leave the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)
A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.
A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.
Semisynthetic derivative of CODEINE that acts as a narcotic analgesic more potent and addicting than codeine.
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
