Open-Label Safety and Tolerability of Oxymorphone IR and ER in Opioid Tolerant Pediatric Subjects

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00765856
Recruitment Status : Terminated (Terminated new protocol developed which incorporated Pharmacokinetics)

Brief Summary:
Patients will convert from current opioid to Oxymorphone ER and undergo titration. During the Titration Period, subjects will receive daily oxymorphone Extended Release tablets(s) every 12 hours. Dosing adjustments will be based on the review of the subject's pain scores. Oxymorphone IR 5 mg will be provided to be used as supplemental "breakthrough" pain medication (as needed). Titration Period will end when the fixed dose of study medication is tolerated and the subject achieves adequate analgesia. Subjects will then proceed to the open-label 3-month maintenance period on the fixed dose of study medication established during the Titration Period.
