Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the safety and tolerability of Oxycodone hydrochloride injection 50 mg/mL [ Time Frame: 20 Days ]

Enrollment: 33
Study Start Date: May 2008
Study Completion Date: June 2009
Primary Completion Date: May 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
This is study involving a treatment phase of up to 20 days. During this time patients will receive Oxycodone Hydrochloride 50mg/ml as a subcutaneous infusion. During the treatment phase, safety will be assessed by documentation of type and frequency of spontaneously reported adverse events and adverse events noted after assessment of the infusion site (every 24 hours and when resited). The subjects will be followed up for 7 days to collect information on ongoing AEs/SAEs and any new AEs/SAEs that may have occurred.
