  Purpose

The objective of this study is to demonstrate the effectiveness and tolerability of the buprenorphine transdermal system (5, 10, and 20 mg) in comparison to placebo transdermal system and immediate release oxycodone/acetaminophen in subjects with osteoarthritis pain inadequately treated with non-opioid analgesics. The double-blind treatment intervention duration is 60 days.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Brief Pain Inventory
  • dropouts due to lack of efficacy
  • MOS health survey
  • VAS pain intensity
  • therapeutic response
  • patient preference
  • daily patient diary
  • and number of oxycodone/acetaminophen or placebo tablets taken

Estimated Enrollment: 225
Study Start Date: November 1996
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 1999
Detailed Description:

Buprenorphine is a synthetic opioid analgesic with over twenty-five years of international clinical experience indicating it to be safe and effective in a variety of therapeutic situations for the relief of moderate to severe pain. Transdermal systems may offer advantages over currently indicated oral products including ease and convenience of use, improved compliance, possible reduction in patient care, and prolonged and consistent delivery of drug.
