Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline to Week 16 in the average Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN) pain as measured by an 11-point Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) for tanezumab vs. placebo treatment. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wk 16 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline to Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 12 in the average DPN pain NRS score derived from the patient daily diary. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 2, 4, 6, 8 & 12 ]
  • Cumulative distribution of percent change from Baseline in the average DPN pain NRS score to Week 16. [ Time Frame: Baseline & Wk 16 ]
  • Response as defined by a ≥30%, ≥50%, ≥70% and a ≥90% reduction from Baseline in the average DPN pain NRS score derived from the patient daily diary at Weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8,12 and 16. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, & 16 ]
  • Change from Baseline to Weeks 8 and 16 in the Brief Pain Inventory-short form (BPI-sf) scores. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 8 & 16 ]
  • Change from Baseline to Weeks 8 and 16 in the Neuropathic Pain Symptom Inventory (NPSI). [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 8 & 16 ]
  • Change from Baseline to Weeks 4, 8, 12 and 16 in Patient's Global Assessment of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 8 & 16 ]
  • Treatment Response: Improvement of ≥2 points in Patient's Global Assessment of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy at Weeks 4, 8, 12 and 16. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 4, 8, 12 & 16 ]
  • Change from Baseline to Week 16 in the EuroQol (EQ-5D) Health Questionnaire. [ Time Frame: Baseline & Wk 16 ]
  • Time to discontinuation due to lack of efficacy. [ Time Frame: Time to discontinuation ]
  • Usage of Rescue Medication. [ Time Frame: Wks 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, & 16 ]
  • Adverse events. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16 & 24 ]
  • Safety laboratory testing (chemistry, hematology, urinalysis). [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 4, 8, 16, & 24 ]
  • Single Electrocardiogram (ECG) 12-lead. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, & 24 ]
  • Physical examinations. [ Time Frame: Wks 16 & 24 ]
  • Vital signs. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16 & 24 ]
  • Anti drug antibody (ADA): serum samples collected predose on Day 1 (Baseline), predose at Week 8 (trough sample), Weeks 16 and 24 for assessment of immunogenicity. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 8, 16 & 24 ]
  • Neurological exam. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16 & 24 ]
  • Change in the Neuropathy Symptoms and Change (NSC) score from Baseline to Week 16. [ Time Frame: Baseline & Wk 16 ]
  • Change in Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) in leg from Baseline to Week 16. [ Time Frame: Baseline & Wk 16 ]
  • Change in density of nerve fibers in the leg from Baseline to Week 16. [ Time Frame: Baseline & Wk 16 ]
  • Plasma tanezumab samples predose on Day 1 (Baseline), Weeks 2, 4, predose at Week 8 (trough sample), Weeks 12, 16 and 24 to characterize tanezumab pharmacokinetics in patients with DPN. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 2, 4, 8, 12, 16 & 24 ]
  • Serum nerve growth factor (NGF) samples predose on Day 1 Baseline), predose at Week 8 (trough sample), Weeks 16 and 24 for pharmacodynamic analysis. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Wks 8, 16, & 24 ]
