First received: September 2, 2009
Last updated: June 28, 2010
Last verified: June 2010

Primary Objective:

To confirm the safety and tolerability of the fixed dose combination of a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID), ketoprofen, associated to a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI), omeprazole, in Mexican patients.

Secondary Objective:

To confirm the efficacy of the combination:

  • Relief of pain (Visual Analyzed Score (VAS))
  • Patients global assessment of disease activity, scored as a scale of 1 (no limitation of normal activities) to 5 (inability to carried out all normal activities)

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of FDC Ketoprofen + Omeprazole in Patients With Rheumatological Conditions With History or Who Are at Risk of Developing NSAID Associated Benign Gastric Ulcers, Duodenal Ulcers and Gastroduodenal Erosions

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To confirm the efficacy of the combination [ Time Frame: From the start to the end of the study (D 0 to D 28) ]
  • Incidence of dyspeptic symptoms: epigastric pain, dyspepsia, nausea [ Time Frame: At Day 10 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of dyspeptic symptoms: epigastric pain, dyspepsia, nausea [ Time Frame: At Day 0, Day 4 & Day 28 ]
  • Incidence of complications (perforations, ulcers, bleeding) and Incidence of fecal occult blood positivity [ Time Frame: At study termination (Day 28) ]
  • Improvement of pain (VAS) [ Time Frame: At study termination (Day 28) ]
  • Incidence of moderate to severe abdominal symptoms and GastroIntestinal Adverse Event leading to withdrawal [ Time Frame: From the start to the end of the study (D 0 to D 28) ]
  • Patient's global assessment of disease activity, scored as a scale of 1 (no limitation of normal activities) to 5 (inability to carried out all normal activities) [ Time Frame: At study termination (Day 28) ]

Ketoprofen + Omeprazole FDC once daily for 4 weeks


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria:

  • Adults suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions, in particular, rheumatoid polyarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis (or related syndromes, such as, Reiters syndrome, psoriatic arthritis,) with a previous history or who are at risk of developing NSAID associated benign gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers and gastroduodenal erosions in whom continued treatment with NSAIDs is necessary.
  • Presenting at the inclusion visit an acute episode of recent onset (<48 hours) defined by average pain within the last 24 hours >=50 mm on the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS).

Exclusion criteria:

  • Hypersensitivity to ketoprofen or to omeprazole or to another proton-pump inhibitor or to any of the excipients.
  • Last trimester of pregnancy.
  • History of asthma induced by administration of ketoprofen or similar acting substances, such as other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) or acetylsalicylic acid.
  • Gastrointestinal disorder or surgery leading to impaired drug absorption.
  • Evidence of uncontrolled, or unstable cardio- or cerebrovascular disorder, which in the investigator's opinion would endanger a subject if they were to participate in the study.
  • Serious blood coagulation disorder including use of systemic anticoagulants.
  • Positive test result for H. pylori at screening.
  • Recent endoscopy showing any gastric or duodenal ulcer at least 3 mm in diameter with depth.
  • Severe hepatic failure.
  • Severe renal failure.
  • Severe heart failure.
  • Patients with asthma associated with chronic rhinitis, chronic sinusitis and/or nasal polyposis.
  • Active peptic ulcer.
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding, cerebrovascular bleeding or other active bleeding.
  • Alcohol consumption or drug abuse.
  • Concomitant use with St. Johns wort or atazanavir sulphate.
  • Concomitant use of the following medications:

    • NSAIDs including cyclooxygenase-2 selective inhibitors
    • Salicylates
    • Corticosteroids
    • DMARDs
    • Antacids
    • Histamine H2 receptors
    • Misoprostol
    • Other PPI
    • Sucralfate
    • Anticoagulants: Anti-platelet agents and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)
    • Lithium:
    • Methotrexate (at doses above 15 mg/week):
  • Screening laboratory value for ALT, AST >2 times the upper limit of normal.
  • Other than noted specifically, any screening laboratory value that is clinically significant in the investigator's opinion and would endanger a subject if they were to participate in the study.
  • History of malignancy, treated or untreated, within the past 5 years, with the exception of successfully treated basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin.
  • Participation in any study of an investigational treatment in the 8 weeks before screening.
