Further study details as provided by Pfizer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the effects of celecoxib on the cumulative amount of opioid administered to OA subjects undergoing unilateral total knee arthroplasty. [ Time Frame: 19 July 2007 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the effects of celecoxib on pain and function during the peri-operative period and the post-operative rehabilitation phase. [ Time Frame: 19 July 2007 ]
