Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to Meaningful Pain Relief [ Time Frame: 0-6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects evaluated the time to "First Perceptible" Relief by depressing a stopwatch at the moment they first began to experience "perceptible" relief and the time to "Meaningful" Relief by depressing a second stopwatch at the moment they first began to experience "meaningful" relief. These times were recorded up to 6 hrs after dosing. Range: up to 6 hrs, a lower number is better.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain Intensity Difference (PID) Scores at Each Individual Time Points [ Time Frame: 0-6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PID is based on the 4-point categorical pain severity score ranging from 0 (none) to 3 (severe), this value was derived by subtracting the score at each post-dosing time point from the baseline score, so that a higher positive value is indicative of greater improvement.

  • Pain Relief (PR) Scores at Individual Time Points [ Time Frame: 0-6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response to the question "How much pain do you have from your starting pain?" was recorded on a 5-point categorical pain relief scale (None (0), A Little (1), Some (2), A Lot (3) or Complete (4)) at designated time points after study medication was taken.

  • Time-weighted Sum of Pain Relief + Pain Intensity Difference (SPRID) From 0-2 Hours and 0-6 Hours [ Time Frame: 0-2 and 0-6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SPRID is a derived endpoint from the pain relief and pain intensity difference scores from 0-2 hours and 0-6 hours. PRID=PID+Pain Relief Score. SPRID-02 range: -2 (worst) to 14 (best); SPRID 06 range: -6 (worst) to 42 (best).

  • Pain Relief Combined With Pain Intensity Difference (PRID) Scores at Individual Time Points [ Time Frame: 0-6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PRID (PRID=PID+PR) is a derived endpoint from the pain relief and pain intensity difference scores at each time point. Range: -1 (worst) to 7 (best).

  • Time-weighted Sum of Pain Intensity Difference (SPID) From 0-2 Hours and 0-6 Hours [ Time Frame: 0-2 and 0-6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SPID is a derived endpoint from the pain intensity difference scores from 0-2 hours and 0-6 hours. Range: -2 (worst) to 6 (best); -6 (worst) to 18 (best).

  • Time-weighted Sum of Pain Relief Scores (TOTPAR) From 0-2 Hours and 0-6 Hours [ Time Frame: 0-2 and 0-6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    TOTPAR is a derived endpoint from the pain relief scores from 0-2 hours and 0-6 hours. Range: 0 (worst) - 8 (best); 0 (worst) - 24 (best)

  • Time to First Perceptible Relief [ Time Frame: 0-6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The elapsed time from dosing until the patient indicated first perceptible relief, provided the subject also indicated achieving meaningful relief.
