A Study is to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of Orally Administered Tapentadol ER at Dosages of 100 to 250 mg Twice Daily Compared With Placebo in Patients With Moderate to Severe Pain Due to Chronic, Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropath

2014-07-24 14:10:27 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of orally administered tapentadol ER at dosages of 100 to 250 mg twice daily compared with placebo in patients with moderate to severe pain due to chronic, painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) who have an initial treatment effect (pain improvement) after a 3-week, open-label titration period.

Description

This is a randomized-withdrawal (only patients that have an initial response to tapentadol are assigned to either tapentadol or placebo), placebo-controlled, multicenter study evaluating the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of orally administered tapentadol, using the extended release tamper-resistant formulation (TRF), at dosages of 100 to 250 mg twice daily in patients with moderate to severe pain due to chronic, painful DPN. The study consists of 1) an open-label (all people involved know the identity of the intervention) phase, including a 13-day screening period, a 5-day washout period (where patients are to stop taking their pain medication), a 3-day pre-titration pain-intensity evaluation period (where patients will record their pain intensity twice daily in the morning and evening), and a 3-week, open-label titration period (all patients receive tapentadol study drug), 2) a 12-week, double-blind (neither physician nor patient knows the name of the assigned drug) maintenance phase, and 3) a posttreatment phase of approximately 10 to 14 days. The study will evaluate the effectiveness of orally administered tapentadol ER versus placebo in reducing patients' pain intensity. The pain intensity will be assessed by comparing the baseline pain level to the level at week 12 of the maintenance phase. The total duration of study drug treatment for each patient will be approximately 15 weeks. Safety and tolerability will be evaluated by vital signs, physical examinations, clinical laboratory tests, 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs), standardized neurologic examinations and monitoring of adverse events. Titrate tapentadol extended release (ER) 50mg twice daily to patient's optimal dose ranging between 100 mg ad 250 mg twice a day; placebo (no active ingredients). All doses of study medication will be taken orally with approximately 120mL of water with or without food for a maximum timeframe of 15 weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1325)

Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy. (Glaser, Neuro-Ophthalmology, 2nd ed, p135)

A rare autosomal disorder characterized by numerous encapsulated lipomas on the trunk and extremities. The lipomas are usually not painful but can cause pain when growing. In rare cases, one lipoma can become painful and progress to multiple painful lipomas; it is then referred to as Dercum's Disease Type III

Disease involving the femoral nerve. The femoral nerve may be injured by ISCHEMIA (e.g., in association with DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES), nerve compression, trauma, COLLAGEN DISEASES, and other disease processes. Clinical features include MUSCLE WEAKNESS or PARALYSIS of hip flexion and knee extension, ATROPHY of the QUADRICEPS MUSCLE, reduced or absent patellar reflex, and impaired sensation over the anterior and medial thigh.

Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
