- Pain VAS (Visual Analog Scale) Response. Percentage of Subjects With a Greater Than or Equal to 30% Reduction in Pain VAS From Baseline (BOCF). [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 14 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Percentage of pain VAS responders. Subjects with a >= 30% reduction in pain VAS from baseline to endpoint (week 14) were considered responders; all other subjects were considered non-responders. Missing data were handled using BOCF (Baseline Observation Carried Forward). The pain VAS ranges from 0 (no pain) to 100 (worst imaginable pain). The pain VAS was collected morning, afternoon and evening. Baseline is the average value recorded for the measure during the week prior to the end-of-baseline visit. Endpoint is the average value recorded for the measure during the week prior to week 14.

The trial is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, parallel group trial in subjects diagnosed with fibromyalgia in accordance with the American College of Rheumatology. Total duration is up to twenty-one (21) weeks of trial participation. Subjects will undergo a screening and withdrawal/washout period lasting up to five (5) weeks combined, followed by baseline period lasting one (1) week. Total treatment duration will be fourteen (14) weeks followed by one (1) week safety follow-up post treatment period. During the screening and withdrawal/washout period, no study medication will be given; however rescue medication acetaminophen (up to 4 grams per day) will be allowed.
