  Purpose

We are proposing a study in which we utilize and augment the sore throat pain model to assess the analgesic effectiveness of celecoxib compared to placebo in patients with painful pharyngitis under randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled conditions.


Condition Intervention Phase
Pharyngitis
Drug: celecoxib
Drug: celecoxib followed by placebo
Drug: placebo
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Double Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Comparison of the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of Celecoxib 100-150 mg, Including Initial Doses of 50 and 100 mg, and Placebo in the Symptomatic Treatment of Patients With Painful Pharyngitis

  • Sum of Sore Throat Pain Intensity Difference (SPID) Within 6 Hours Post-First Dose [ Time Frame: up to 6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Sum of Sore Throat Pain Intensity Difference (SPID) From 7 to 24 Hours Post-First Dose [ Time Frame: 7 to 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Sore Throat Relief Rating Scale (STRRS) Within 6 Hours Post-First Dose [ Time Frame: within the first 6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Sore Throat Relief Rating Scale (STRRS) From 7 to 24 Hours Post-First Dose [ Time Frame: 7 to 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Sore Throat Relief Rating Scale (STRRS) - 'Moderate Relief' at 6 Hours Post-First Dose [ Time Frame: at 6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Sore Throat Relief Rating Scale (STRRS) - 'Moderate Relief' at 12 Hours Post-First Dose [ Time Frame: 12 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to Perceptible Pain Relief [ Time Frame: Within 2 Hours Post-First Dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to Meaningful Pain Relief [ Time Frame: Within 2 Hours Post-First Dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to Onset of Analgesia [ Time Frame: Within 2 Hours Post-First Dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Patient's Global Evaluation of Study Medication at 6 Hours Post-First Dose [ Time Frame: 6 Hours Post-First Dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Patient's Global Evaluation of Study Medication at 12 and 24 Hours Post-First Dose [ Time Frame: 12 and 24 hours Post-First Dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The patient must have a diagnosis of pharyngitis with objective findings of tonsillo-pharyngitis.
  • The patient is willing to take "nothing by mouth" including inhaled treatments except trial medication during the two hours while at the site and following trial drug administration (e.g. not smoking, food, drink, candy, lozenges, chewing gum). The patient will be allowed food and drink between hours 2 and 24, but no other oral or inhaled treatments such as smoking, lozenges, chewing gum. After the two hour assessment, the patients will be allowed food and drink within one half-hour following any hourly evaluations sore throat.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The patient has used any analgesic/antipyretic within 1 dosing interval preceding administration of the first dose of trial medication.
  • The patient anticipates using any inhaled therapy including beta-agonists (e.g., ventolin) during the 24 hour trial period and, if used, has only used inhaled therapy on an intermittent basis in the week prior to the screening visit.
