University of Oklahoma Identifier:
First received: January 4, 2011
Last updated: December 2, 2014
Last verified: December 2014
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate fentanyl buccal tablet (FBT) for analgesia in comparison to standard analgesia, to determine if the FBT allows for faster achievement of "significant analgesia"

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: Fentanyl
Drug: Oxycodone/acetaminophen
Drug: oxycodone/acetaminophen
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Fentanyl Administered Intraorally for Rapid Treatment of Orthopedic Pain: The FAIRTOP II Trial

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain Level [ Time Frame: every 5 minutes for 60 minutes ]
    The study's primary endpoint will be the time at which subjects' pain levels dropped significantly (1.3 units) from the initial pain level, using a verbally administered 10 point pain scale.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Nausea level [ Time Frame: every 5 minutes for the first 60 minutes ]
    Subjects nausea level will be recorded to determine how fentanyl buccal tablet compares to standard therapy in causing nausea

  • Occurrence of adverse events [ Time Frame: the full 2 hours of the study ]

Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: May 2011
Study Completion Date: October 2014
Primary Completion Date: October 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Low-FBT
Subject will receive FBT and placebo at a low dose
Drug: Fentanyl
Fentanyl buccal tablet 100 mcg once
Other Name: Fentora 100 mcg buccal tablet
Experimental: High-FBT
Subject will receive the high dose regimen of FBT and a high dose placebo
Drug: Fentanyl
Fentanyl buccal tablet 200 mcg once
Other Name: Fentora buccal tablet 200 mcg
Active Comparator: Low control
Subject will receive active oxycodone/APAP 5/325 mg and lansoprazole solutab for the fentanyl "placebo"
Drug: Oxycodone/acetaminophen
Oxycodone/acetaminophen 5/325 mg once
Other Name: Percocet 5/325
Active Comparator: High control
Subject will receive the higher dose of the active comparator, #2 oxycodone/APAP 5/325mg, and lansoprazole solutab for the fentanyl "placebo"
Drug: oxycodone/acetaminophen
Oxycodone/acetaminophen tablet 5/325 mg, 2 tablets one time
Other Name: Percocet 5/325

Detailed Description:
The subjects/patients will be asked if they would desire a low dose or high dose pain medication regimen. The low dose (low-FBT) group will receive FBT at a dose of 100 mcg, as well as an oral (pill) placebo preparation. The low dose (low-control) group will receive an "inactive comparator" (lansoprazole rapidly-dissolving buccal 15mg, " FBT placebo") and a dose of 5/325 Percocet tablet (oxycodone/acetaminophen 5/325). The high dose (high-FBT) group will receive 200 mcg FBT plus 2 placebo tablets. The high dose (high-control) group will receive the "FBT placebo" and a dose of 2, 5/325 Percocet tablets.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • pain sufficient to warrant medication stronger than acetaminophen (Tylenol) or aspirin
  • only if Emergency Department provider approves
  • a negative pregnancy test is required for participation for women of childbearing age

Exclusion Criteria:

  • If treating provider determines intravenous analgesia is required
  • allergy to acetaminophen or any opiate/opioid, or lansoprazole patients currently taking phenothiazines, CNS depressants (including alcohol), or if they have taken an monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) in the past two weeks
  • if patient has already been administered an opioid analgesic for their current injury
  • patients on chronic opioids therapy or a history of opioid abuse
  • breastfeeding mothers
  • patients who plan to drive home after their emergency department visit
  • history of phenylketonuria (due to phenylalanine in the formulation of the lansoprazole solutab)
