Primary objective:

To demonstrate the non-inferiority of Bi-Profenid 100 mg x 2 day versus Bi-Profenid 150 mg x 2 day in patients presenting with pain related to closed, benign, acute post-traumatic conditions of the motor system or acute, non-infectious rheumatologic conditions, by comparing, on the one hand, changes in resting pain intensity over the entire day, measured at the end of the day using a numeric scale (NS), over 5 days and, on the other hand, total intake over 5 days of concomitant analgesics.

Secondary Objectives:

  • To describe concomitant analgesic treatments
  • To describe the time between baseline and use of a step I, II or III analgesic
  • To evaluate patients pain relief using a Likert 4-class scale (complete or substantial relief, moderate relief slight relief and absence of relief) at D5
  • To evaluate changes in intensity of pain when moving, over the entire day, measured at the end of the day using a numeric scale, over 5 days
  • To evaluate the patients overall satisfaction at the end of treatment using a 4-point Simple Verbal Scale (SVS) (very satisfied, somewhat satisfied, somewhat unsatisfied, very unsatisfied)
  • To evaluate the patients overall satisfaction at the end of the study using a 4-point Simple Verbal Scale (EVS) (very satisfied, somewhat satisfied, somewhat unsatisfied, very unsatisfied)
  • To compare the safety of the two treatments

Official Title: Non-inferiority Study of Bi-Profenid® 200 mg Versus Bi-Profenid® 300 mg in Patients Presenting With Pain Related to Closed, Benign, Acute Post-traumatic Conditions of the Motor System or Acute, Non-infectious Rheumatologic Conditions

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Resting pain intensity measured using the numeric scale (NS) at the end of the day, and total intake of concomitant analgesics over 5 days. For these two parameters, the maximum value will be assigned to patients who used step II or III analgesics [ Time Frame: between D1 and D5, at the end of the day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
