Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Treatment Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 54 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in the Pain Intensity Scale of the Severity of Dyspepsia Assessment (SODA) Questionnaire at 54 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and 54 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The pain intensity scale of the SODA questionnaire ranges from 2 - 47. Change from baseline compares the score at Week 54 to the baseline score for each participant who completed the pain intensity questions of the SODA questionnaire at baseline and Week 54. Higher scores indicate greater symptom severity and therefore a negative mean change from baseline is indicative of an improvement in symptoms.

  • Change From Baseline in the Non-pain Symptoms Scale of the Severity of Dyspepsia Assessment (SODA) Questionnaire at 54 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and 54 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The non-pain symptom scale of the SODA questionnaire ranges from 7 - 35. Change from baseline compares the score at Week 54 to the baseline score for each participant that completed the non-pain symptom questions of the SODA questionnaire at baseline and Week 54. Higher scores indicate greater symptom severity and therefore a negative mean change from baseline is indicative of an improvement in symptoms.

  • Change From Baseline in the Satisfaction With Dyspepsia-Related Health Scale of the Severity of Dyspepsia Assessment (SODA) Questionnaire at 54 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and 54 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The satisfaction with dyspepsia-related health scale of the SODA questionnaire ranges from 2 - 23. Change from baseline compares the score at Week 54 to the baseline score for each participant who completed the Satisfaction questions of the SODA questionnaire at baseline and Week 54. A positive change from baseline in the SODA satisfaction scale represents a participant's overall improved satisfaction with their dyspepsia-related health.

Study Completion Date: July 2011
Primary Completion Date: July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: HZT-501
Open-label treatment with HZT-501
Drug: HZT-501
Fixed-dose combination oral tablet 800mg Ibuprofen/26.6 mg Famotidine taken three times per day

Detailed Description:

HZT-501, a fixed-dose combination of ibuprofen, a pain and inflammation relieving non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), and famotidine, a histamine type 2 receptor antagonist (H2RA), is being developed for the treatment of patients with signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, mild to moderate pain or dysmenorrhea who are at risk of developing ibuprofen-associated upper gastrointestinal ulcers.
