Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary outcome will be the measure of the percentage of responders defined as patients with a minimum decrease of 50 % of their maximum neuropathic pain dimension (either pain or dysesthesia) present at baseline. [ Time Frame: The mean pain score during the last 7 days of the treatment period will be compared to the mean score of the last 7 days of the screening score period. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment with respect to placebo of the effect of TRO19622 on Neuropathic Pain Inventory Score(total and by dimension) [ Time Frame: Screening visit; V0; V1; V2; V3; V4 ; V5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment with respect to placebo of the effect of TRO19622 on Short- Form BPI [ Time Frame: Screening visit; V0; V1; V2; V3; V4 ; V5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment with respect to placebo of the effect of TRO19622 on Quality of life questionnaire (CIPN 20) [ Time Frame: V0; V3; V5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment with respect to placebo of the effect of TRO19622 on Dysgueusia questionnaire [ Time Frame: V0; V3; V5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment with respect to placebo of the effect of TRO19622 on Quantitative Sensory Testing [ Time Frame: V0; V3; V5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • Assessment with respect to placebo of the effect of TRO19622 on safety profile [ Time Frame: Screening visit; V0; V1; V2; V3; V4 ; V5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Assessment with respect to placebo of the effect of TRO19622 on Global Impression of change as assessed by Investigator [ Time Frame: V1; V2; V3; V4; V5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment with respect to placebo of the effect of TRO19622 on Global Impression of change as assessed by patient [ Time Frame: V1; V2; V3; V4; V5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment with respect to placebo of the effect of TRO19622 on Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale [ Time Frame: V0;V3;V5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy represents a frequent and invalidating side effect that requires treatment. Current treatment options are multiple, but none have yet demonstrated efficacy in double-blind clinical trials .

This study will provide information useful to determine the potential of TRO19622 to relieve both pain and dysesthesia which are the most common symptoms experienced by patients with peripheral neuropathy following taxane chemotherapy.

At the start of the study, patients will be randomized to one of two groups : TRO19622 (330 mg QD or placebo once a day).

Each treatment will be administered for 6 weeks. Additionally, patients will have the option to continue treatment for another 6 weeks duration.

Treatment will be administered under double-blind conditions. The product under evaluation will be administered to patients receiving the standard of care for CIPN.

  • Have paclitaxel (or other taxane) induced peripheral neuropathy assessed by the presence of a NCI-CTC version 2 neuropathy sensory grade >/= 2 .
  • Peripheral neuropathy as clinically diagnosed during the neurological examination including sensitivity, motor function and deep tendon reflex assessments
  • With Neuropathic pain as assessed by the presence of measurable pain perception (previous 24h)on the Likert numerical rating scale >/= 4 points at the screening visit and confirmed on DN4 with a score >/= 4 and/or Dysesthesia as assessed by the presence of measurable dysesthesia (previous 24h) on the Likert numerical rating scale >/= 4 points at the screening visit
  • Persistent neuropathy for at least 3, but no more than 12 months after the end of chemotherapy.
  • Be either pain treatment naive or have important side effects or inadequate relief from their current pain medication (stable over last month).

The following inclusion criteria should be ascertained at the baseline visit:

  • Peripheral neuropathy symptoms: Have measurable pain perception (previous 24h) on the Likert numerical rating scale with a mean >/= 4 points calculated from at least 4 daily measurements over the 7 days immediately prior to the Baseline Visit and/or Dysesthesia as assessed by the presence of measurable dysesthesia with a mean >/= 4 points calculated from at least 4 daily measurements over the 7 days immediately prior to the Baseline Visit.
  • Have an electrocardiogram (ECG) at Baseline without any clinically significant abnormality.
  • Have an expected survival > 6 months.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Have a documented neuropathy or risk factors of neuropathy which might interfere with the assessment of the severity of pain (eg, including, but not limited to, type 2 diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, B12 Vitamin deficiency, thyroid dysfunction, post surgical neuropathic pain, post-traumatic neuropathy, or neuropathy in relation with disease progression).
  • Have other neurological diseases that may produce weakness, sensory loss, or autonomic symptoms, or laboratory test abnormality.

  • HIV positive serology.
  • History of, or current cardiac dysrhythmias and / or a history of cardiovascular disease,including myocardial infarction, except patients with only well controlled hypertension.
  • Have had prior (within the past 6 months) or have concurrent neurotoxic drugs (e.g., but not limited to, cisplatin, vincristine, vinblastine, cytarabine, thalidomide, bortezomib, or procarbazine, capecitabine, navelbine).
