  Purpose

This is a 3-arm, prospective, randomized, double-blind, and controlled study of DLBS1442 for the treatment of pain in patients suspected endometriosis. It is hypothesized that the reduction of the composite-pain intensity (as measured by VAS) from baseline to the end of study (week 8th) resulting from administration of DLBS1442, regardless of the dosage regimen, is significantly greater than that of Control. In addition, the administration of DLBS1442 at higher dose also results in significantly greater reduction than that of DLBS1442 at lower dose and of Control.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of intensity (VAS)of composite-pain [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Reduction of the intensity of composite-pain (dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, non-menstrual chronic pelvic pain, dysuria, dyschezia) as measured by Visual Analogue Scale (VAS).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of the intensity of each pain [ Time Frame: 4 and 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Reduction of the intensity of each pain (dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, non-menstrual chronic pelvic pain, dysuria, dyschezia) as measured by Visual Analogue Scale (VAS).

  • Response rate [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response rate is defines as percentage of subjects at the end of study experiencing a reduction of VAS score of >= 3 or >= 30% as compared to baseline, in each of the composite pain found at baseline (i.e. dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, non-menstrual pelvic pain, dysuria, or dyschezia).

  • Improvement of quality of life [ Time Frame: 4 and 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Improvement of quality of life is measured by Endometriosis Health Profile (EHP-30) questionnaire score.

  • Reduction in serum CA-125 [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change of IL-6 [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of rescue medication needed during the course of the study [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of rescue medication (pain relieving drug, i.e. ibuprofen 400 mg tablet) needed during the course of the study.

  • Time to the first day on which subjects take rescue medication (pain-free period) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage or proportion of subjects who complete the study (2 cycles) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Electrocardiography [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Vital signs [ Time Frame: 4 and 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Vital signs measured include: blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate.

  • Liver function [ Time Frame: 4 and 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Liver function measured includes: serum ALT (SGPT), serum AST (SGOT), and alkaline phosphatase (AP).

  • Renal function [ Time Frame: 4 and 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Renal function measured includes: serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN).

  • Routine hematology [ Time Frame: 4 and 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Routine hematology measured includes: hemoglobin, hematocrit, RBC, WBC, differentiation of WBC, and platelet count.

  • Adverse event [ Time Frame: 1 - 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Adverse event will be observed and managed along the study course.
