placebo matching placebo twice daily for 12 weeks
matching placebo twice daily for 12 weeks
CG5503 100, 150, 200, 250mg twice daily given for up to 15 weeks

- Change From Baseline (at Randomization) in Average Pain Intensity on an 11-point Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) Over the Last Week of the Double-blind Maintenance Period at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ]For this twice daily pain assessment, the subjects were to indicate the level of pain experienced over the previous 12 hours on an 11-point Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) where a score of 0 indicated "no pain" and a score of 10 indicated "pain as bad as you can imagine".
- The Number of Patients Achieving at Least 30% Improvement in Pain Score at Week 12 of the Double-blind Maintenance Period From the Start of the Open Label Period. [ Time Frame: Start of Open Label and at 12 weeks of Double Blind ]The number of patients achieving at least 30% improvement in pain score at Week 12 of the double-blind maintenance period on an 11-point numerical rating scale compared with the start of the open-label period.
- Percentage of Patients Who Reported Very Much Improved or Much Improved From Baseline in Patient Global Impression of Change Over the Last Week of the Maintenance Period at Week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 week endpoint ]Percentage of patients who reported very much improved (1) or much improved (2) based on an ordinal measure indicating change from start of double blind treatment (on a scale of 7 = Very much worse to 1 = Very much improved)
- Change From Baseline in EuroQol-5 (EQ-5D) Health Status Index to Week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 week endpoint (change from baseline) ]Change from baseline to end point in EuroQol-5 Dimension Questionnaire. A higher score indicates an improvement in health in the Health Status Index. The EuroQol-5 is a five dimensional health state classification. Each dimension is assessed on a 3-point ordinal scale (1=no problems, 2=some problems, 3=extreme problems). The responses to the five EQ-5D dimensions were scored using a utility-weighted algorithm to derive an EQ-5D health status index score between 0 to 1, with 1.00 indicating "full health" and 0 representing dead.
- Change From Baseline in Sleep Latency Time in Hours Over the Last Week of the Maintenance Period at Week 12. [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 week endpoint ]A Sleep Questionnaire addressed the following question: "How long after bedtime/lights out did you fall asleep last night (hours)?" 12 week endpoint-mean changes from baseline at endpoint for sleep latency. Decrease in time (hours) indicates improvement.
- Change From Baseline in Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) Total Pain Score Over the Last Week of the Maintenance Period at Week 12. [ Time Frame: Baseline and12 week endpoint ]Total pain score where zero equals "no pain" to ten equals "pain as bad as you can imagine" from 12 week endpoint vs baseline.
