Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Change From Baseline at 12-Week Endpoint in the Weekly Mean of Pain Severity Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    24-hour average pain severity scores were recorded daily by the participant on an 11-point Likert scale, an ordinal scale, with scores ranging from 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain). The weekly mean was calculated. A negative change indicated an improvement in participant's condition. Least squares (LS) mean was calculated using mixed model repeating measures (MMRM) and adjusted for treatment, pooled investigator, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as baseline score and baseline score-by-visit interaction.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Change From Baseline at 12-Week Endpoint in Weekly Mean of Night Pain and Worst Pain [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    24-hour average night pain and worst pain severity scores were recorded daily on an 11-point Likert scale, an ordinal scale, with scores ranging from 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain). A negative change indicated an improvement in the participant's condition. LS mean was calculated using MMRM and adjusted for treatment, pooled investigator, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as the baseline score and baseline score-by-visit interaction.

  • Mean Change From Baseline at 12-Week Endpoint in the BPI-Severity Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    BPI-Severity Scale was a self-reported scale that measured the severity of pain based on the average pain over the past 24-hours. The severity scores range from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as severe as you can imagine). A negative change indicated an improvement in the participant's condition. LS mean was calculated using MMRM and adjusted for treatment, pooled investigator, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as baseline score and baseline score-by-visit interaction.

  • Mean Change From Baseline at 12-Week Endpoint in the CGI-S Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    CSI-S was administered by the investigator in the presence of the participant and measured the severity of illness at the time of assessment compared with start of treatment; CGI-S scores ranged from 1 (normal, not at all ill) to 7 (among the most extremely ill participants). A negative change indicated an improvement in the participant's condition. LS mean was calculated using MMRM and adjusted for treatment, pooled investigator, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as baseline score and baseline score-by-visit interaction.

  • Patient Global Impression of Improvement (PGI-I) Scale at 12-Week Endpoint [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PGI-I was self-reported and measured a participant's perception of improvement at the time of assessment compared with the start of treatment. Scores ranged from 1 (very much better) to 7 (very much worse). LS mean was calculated using MMRM and adjusted for treatment, pooled investigator, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as baseline score and baseline score-by-visit interaction.

  • Mean Change From Baseline at 12-Week Endpoint in the Sensory Subscale of the SF-MPQ [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SF-MPQ was a self-reported instrument that consisted of 11 sensory descriptors describing pain. The descriptors were rated on an intensity scale from 0 (none), 1 (mild), 2 (moderate) or 3 (severe). Three (3) pain scores were derived from the sum of the intensity rank values of the words chosen for sensory descriptors. The SF-MPQ sensory subscale was the sum of the 11 scores (ranged from 0 to 33, with 33 being the worst pain). A negative change indicates an improvement. LS mean was calculated using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) adjusted for treatment, pooled investigator and baseline.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experience Equal to or Greater Than 30%, 50% or 75% Reduction From Baseline at 12-Week Endpoint in Weekly Mean of Average Daily Pain [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    24-hour self-assessment of average daily pain was recorded in the participants diary based on an 11 point Likert scale with scores ranging from 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain). Percentage of participants was calculated as: (number of participants with 30% [or 50% or 75%] reduction in average daily pain) divided by (number of participants) multiplied by 100.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Equal to or Greater Than 30%, 50% or 75% Reduction From Baseline at 12-week Endpoint in BPI-Severity Average Pain Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    BPI-Severity scale was a self-reported scale that measured the severity of pain based on the average pain experienced over the past 24 hours. The severity scores range from 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as severe as you can imagine). A negative change indicated an improvement in the participant's condition. Percentage of participants was calculated as: (number of participants with 30% [or 50% or 75%] reduction in BPI-Severity average pain) divided by (number of participants) multiplied by 100.

  • Mean Change From Baseline at 12-week Endpoint in the BPI Interference Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    BPI-Interference Score was a self-reported scale that measured the interference of pain based on the average of the 7 questions assessing the interference of pain for general activity, mood, walking ability, normal work, relations with other people, sleep, and enjoyment of life. The average interference scores ranged from 0 (does not interfere) to 10 (completely interferes). A negative change indicates an improvement in the participant's condition. LS means was calculated using MMRM and adjusted treatment, pooled investigator, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, baseline score and baseline score-by-visit interaction.

  • Mean Change From Baseline at 12 Week Endpoint in the SDS Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SDS was self-reported and used to assess the effect of the participant's symptoms on their work (Item 1), social life (Item 2), and family life (Item 3). Each item was measured on a 0 (not at all) to 10 (extremely) point scale with higher values indicating greater disruption. SDS total score was the sum of the 3 items and ranged from 0 to 30, with higher values indicating greater disruption in the participant's work/social/family life. Scores ≥5 were associated with significant functional impairment. A negative change indicated an improvement in the participant's condition. LS mean was adjusted using MMRM and adjusted for treatment, pooled investigator, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, baseline score and baseline score-by-visit interaction.
