14:34 EDT 1st September 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a Phase 3, two-arm, double-blind study of efficacy and safety of Q8003 in patients who have undergone primary unilateral total knee arthroplasty

Description

This Phase 3 study is a two-arm, double-blind study to:

- compare the analgesic efficacy and safety of the flexible regimen of Q8003 (6 mg/4 mg up to 24 mg/16 mg) administered every 4-6 hours over a 48-hour Treatment Period versus low dose Q8003 (every 4-6 hours 3 mg/2 mg with a 6 mg/4 mg loading dose) to inpatients with moderate to severe postoperative pain who have undergone primary unilateral total knee arthroplasty.

- to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Q8003 when administered in the Voluntary Extension Period starting at 48 hours after the initial dosing and extending up to Day 12.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)

Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.

Radiotherapy where there is improved dose homogeneity within the tumor and reduced dosage to uninvolved structures. The precise shaping of dose distribution is achieved via the use of computer-controlled multileaf collimators.

A specific immune response elicited by a specific dose of an immunologically active substance or cell in an organism, tissue, or cell.
