Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Peak plasma concentration (Cmax) of Synera after application of 4 patches [ Time Frame: 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 8, 10, 12 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Peak plasma concentration of Synera after application of 4 patches for 2-, 4- and 12-hours


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with adverse events [ Time Frame: 24 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Area under the plasma concentration versus time (AUC) of Synera [ Time Frame: 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 8, 10, 12 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve of Synera after application of 4 patches for 2-, 4-, and 12 hours

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Synera
Subjects received 4 Synera® patches for 2 hours in Session 1 and 4 patches for 12 hours in Session 4. During Study Session 2, subjects were randomly assigned to 4-hour applications of either 4 Synera® patches or 4 lidocaine/tetracaine patches without heat ("no heat patches") and were crossed over during Study Session 3.
Drug: Synera
Subjects received 4 Synera® patches for 2 hours in Session 1 and 4 patches for 12 hours in Session 4. During Study Session 2, subjects were randomly assigned to 4-hour applications of either 4 Synera® patches or 4 lidocaine/tetracaine patches without heat ("no heat patches") and were crossed over during Study Session 3.
Other Name: Lidocaine 70 mg/Tetracaine 70 mg topical patch

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the pharmacokinetic profiles of lidocaine and tetracaine after 2-, 4-, and 12-hour application of 4 Synera® patches and a 4-hour application of 4 lidocaine/tetracaine patches without heat in healthy adult subjects and to monitor the frequency and nature of adverse events. In addition to determining the pharmacokinetics for a one-time application of 4 Synera® patches, steady-state pharmacokinetics were modeled and residual patch concentrations of lidocaine and tetracaine were determined.
