The aim of this study is to describe the use of Instanyl® (Intranasal fentanyl spray) in the treatment of breakthrough pain (BTP) in cancer patients by success of dose titration and distribution of dose strength. Data will be collected at three different time points over a 3 month period.

Breakthrough Cancer Pain

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A 3 Month Observational Prospective Patient Cohort Study of the Treatment of Breakthrough Pain in Cancer Patients With Instanyl®

Further study details as provided by Takeda:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Success of titration (Y/N), defined as reaching a maintenance dose [ Time Frame: At week 4 and month 3 after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Dose level of Instanyl® after titration, defined as the maintenance dose [ Time Frame: At week 4 and month 3 after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) [ Time Frame: At week 4 and month 3 after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Reason and time for Instanyl® termination [ Time Frame: At week 4 and month 3 after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in Instanyl® maintenance dose [ Time Frame: At week 4 and month 3 after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in level of background medication (standardised daily dose) [ Time Frame: At week 4 and month 3 after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pain, pain relief and impact of pain of daily life [ Time Frame: At baseline and week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Treatment satisfaction [ Time Frame: At baseline and week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
