  Outcome Measures
  Show All Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Percentage of Participants With Response to Treatment as Measured by Neuropathy Impairment Score - Lower Limb (NIS-LL) at Month 18   [ Time Frame: Month 18 ]

2.  Primary:   Change From Baseline in Norfolk Quality of Life- Diabetic Neuropathy (QOL-DN) Total Quality of Life (TQOL) Score at Month 18   [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 18 ]

3.  Secondary:   Change From Baseline in Neuropathy Impairment Score- Lower Limb (NIS-LL) Score at Month 6, 12 and 18   [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 6, 12, 18 ]
  Hide Outcome Measure 3

Measure Type Secondary
Measure Title Change From Baseline in Neuropathy Impairment Score- Lower Limb (NIS-LL) Score at Month 6, 12 and 18
Measure Description NIS-LL: assessed muscle weakness, reflexes and sensation; scored separately for left and right limbs. Components of muscle weakness (hip and knee flexion, hip and knee extension, ankle dorsiflexors, ankle plantar flexors, toe extensors, toe flexors) are scored on 0(normal) to 4(paralysis) scale, higher score=greater weakness. Components of reflexes (quadriceps femoris, triceps surae) and sensation (touch pressure, pin-prick, vibration, joint position) were scored 0 = normal, 1= decreased, or 2 = absent. Total possible NIS-LL score range 0-88, higher score=greater impairment.

Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
ITT population included all randomized participants who received at least 1 dose of study medication and had at least 1 post-baseline efficacy assessment for NIS-LL and Norfolk QOL-DN or discontinued study due to death/LT. ‘n’ = those participants who were evaluable for this measure at given time point for each group respectively.

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Instead of the intended endpoint 'heat pain and cooling threshold', results of 'summated 3 score for small nerve fiber function' were reported.
