The study objective is the eluciation of the dose-response function in efficacy (and possibly safety) in order to determine an optimal dose with respect to efficacy and safety. The study is designed with three dose levels and one placebo control.

Condition Intervention Phase
Osteoarthritis; Knee
Drug: IDEA-033 (and rescue medication)
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Evaluation of Dose Related Safety and Efficacy of Epicutaneously Applied IDEA-033 for 3 Months Treatment of OA of the Knee Followed by a Double-Blind, Dose-Controlled Evaluation of Safety and Efficacy of Epicutaneously Applied IDEA-033 for 12 Weeks Treatment of OA of the Knee

Further study details as provided by IDEA AG:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • change from baseline at week 12 (or end of study measurements) on the Visual Analogue Scale version of the entire WOMAC Pain subscale (primary)
  • patient global assessment of response to therapy measured on a 5-point Likert Scale at week 12 or end of study measurements (co-primary)
  • change from baseline at week 12 (or end of study measurements) on the Visual Analogue Scale version of the entire WOMAC function subscale (co-primary)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline at week 12 (or end of study measurements) for Physician's Global Assessment of OA and for observed function (TUG)
  • Mean number of rescue medication taken per day while in the study
  • Number of withdrawals and time to discontinuation of the study due to lack of efficacy
  • Time to onset (in days) of pain relief and time to onset of new flares during treatment
  • Change from baseline on the vitality subscale of the SF-36 health survey and the EURO QoL
