Last verified: November 2012
To determine whether a single dose of intravenous lornoxicam is superior to intravenous placebo for management of post-operative pain in patients who have surgical removal of a bunion on the lower extremity. One-fourth of patients in this study will receive a single dose of intravenous ketorolac for management of pain and one-fourth of patients in this study will receive a single dose of an intravenous placebo.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Parallel-Group, Double-Blind, Single-Dose Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Intravenous Lornoxicam (8 mg and 16 mg) Compared to Intravenous Placebo and Ketorolac 30 mg in Management of Acute Postoperative Pain Following Orthopedic Surgery (Bunionectomy).

Further study details as provided by POZEN:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The analgesic efficacy (TOTPAR) over 0-12 hours measured on a 100 point Visual Analog Scale (VAS) of a single intravenous dose of lornoxicam (8 mg or 16 mg) compared to placebo in the treatment of post-orthopedic surgery (bunionectomy)
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of lornoxicam administered to subjects with post-bunionectomy surgery pain.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the time to onset of analgesic effect and peak analgesic effect of lornoxicam (8 mg and 16 mg) compared to placebo.
