Primary Outcome Measures:
  • WOMAC Knee and Hip Osteoarthritis Index [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Pain,Stiffness and Physical Function subscales of the WOMAC Knee and Hip Osteoarthritis Index (5-point Likert scale: none through extreme) was employed. The subscales consist of 24 questions (5 pain, 2 stiffness and 17 physical function)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with adverse events [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • TOPS survey [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To document outcomes following pain therapy with ZR-02-01 using the TOPS survey, a disease-specific measure of health

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: ZR-02-01 matrix fentanyl Patch
ZR-02-01 matrix fentanyl patch
Drug: ZR-02-01 Fentanyl Transdermal Matrix Patch
Study patches were replaced every 72 hours and were to be applied on the upper chest or lateral aspect of the upper arms. The patch application sites were to be rotated so the patch was not applied to the same skin site for successive applications. Patients were supplied with Tegaderm if needed to keep the patches adhered during the 72 hour wear period.

Detailed Description:

This study will evaluate the analgesic efficacy of the matrix fentanyl patch. The study will be conducted in non-opioid tolerant patients with moderate to severe osteoarthritis (OA) pain. This patient population was chosen in anticipation that the patients are otherwise healthy adults being treated with NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs) or acetaminophen or who have received intermittent opioid analgesic treatment.
