Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Rates of Extensor Digitorum Brevis (EDB) Muscle M-Wave Amplitude Reduction From Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline and Up to Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The pharmacodynamic effect of botulinum toxin type B (E2014) was evaluated based on the inhibition of EDB M-wave amplitude induced by stimulation of the deep peroneal nerve in the left ankles of the study participants. EDB M-wave amplitudes (mV) were measured at screening (baseline), and Day 1, Day 2, Day 4, Day 6, Day 8, Day 10, Day 14, Week 4, and Week 12. Rates of EDB M-wave amplitude reduction from baseline were then calculated at each time point. The maximum rates of EDB M-wave amplitude reduction from baseline were presented as a percentage.

  • Extensor Digitorum Brevis (EDB) Muscle M-Wave Amplitude at Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The pharmacodynamic effect of botulinum toxin type B (E2014) was evaluated based on the inhibition of EDB M-wave amplitude induced by stimulation of the deep peroneal nerve in the left ankles of the study participants. EDB M-wave amplitudes (mV) were measured at screening (baseline).

  • Maximum Rates of Extensor Digitorum Brevis (EDB) Muscle M-Wave Area Reduction From Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline and Up to 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The pharmacodynamic effect of botulinum toxin type B (E2014) was evaluated based on the inhibition of EDB M-wave area induced by stimulation of the deep peroneal nerve in the left ankles of the study participants. EDB M-wave area (mVms) was measured at screening (baseline), and Day 1, Day 2, Day 4, Day 6, Day 8, Day 10, Day 14, Week 4, and Week 12. Rates of EDB M-wave area reduction from baseline were then calculated at each time point. The maximum rates of EDB M-wave area reduction from baseline were presented as a percentage.

  • Extensor Digitorum Brevis (EDB) Muscle M-Wave Area At Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The pharmacodynamic effect of botulinum toxin type B (E2014) was evaluated based on the inhibition of EDB M-wave area induced by stimulation of the deep peroneal nerve in the left ankles of the study participants. EDB M-wave area (mVms) was measured at screening (baseline).


Enrollment: 48
Study Start Date: January 2006
Primary Completion Date: August 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: E2014 (Botulinum toxin type B) Drug: E2014 (Botulinum toxin type B)
A single-dose injection solution containing 20 units (U), 100 U, or 500 U/ 0.2 milliliters (mL) of E2014 was administered to extensor digitorum brevis (EDB) muscle in the left lower limb to Japanese and Caucasian participants. Duration of treatment lasted for 12 weeks: from Day -1 to Week 12. Participants were hospitalized from a day before study treatment to Day 8 for 9 nights and 10 days, and visited at the medical institution on Days 10 and 14, and Weeks 4 and 12.
Placebo Comparator: E2014 (Botulinum toxin type B) Placebo Drug: E2014 (Botulinum toxin type B) Placebo
A single-dose injection solution of E2014 Placebo was administered to extensor digitorum brevis (EDB) muscle in the left lower limb to Japanese and Caucasian participants. Duration of treatment lasted for 12 weeks: from Day -1 to Week 12. Participants were hospitalized from a day before study treatment to Day 8 for 9 nights and 10 days, and visited at the medical institution on Days 10 and 14, and Weeks 4 and 12.
