- 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-two (22) 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 a two week safety follow-up post treatment period. During the screening and withdrawal/washout period, no study medication will be given; however rescue medication up to 4 grams per day of acetaminophen (paracetemol) will be allowed.
