A Study Comparing Norspan Patch and Oral Tramadol
This trial was designed for comparison and evaluation of the efficacy and safety of buprenorphine transdermal patch (Norspan® patch 5 mg, 10 mg and 20mg) against oral tramadol (Tridol® SR tablet 100mg) in patients with moderate to severe pain due to osteoarthritis.
The primary objective of this non-inferiority study with active, parallel control group is to compare and assess efficacy and safety of buprenorphine transdermal patch (Norspan® Patch 5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg) and tramadol (Tridol® SR Tablet 100mg) in patients with moderate to severe pain due to osteoarthritis. During the period of treatment for 8weeks, titration and maintenance is kept up after 1:1 ratio randomization.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A derivative of the opioid alkaloid THEBAINE that is a more potent and longer lasting analgesic than MORPHINE. It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors. The lack of delta-agonist activity has been suggested to account for the observation that buprenorphine tolerance may not develop with chronic use.
A narcotic analgesic proposed for severe pain. It may be habituating.
Opiate Substitution Treatment
Medical treatment for opioid dependence using a substitute opiate such as METHADONE or BUPRENORPHINE.
An IBUPROFEN-type anti-inflammatory analgesic and antipyretic. It is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Viscoelastic solutions that are injected into JOINTS in order to alleviate symptoms of joint-related disorders such as OSTEOARTHRITIS.
