|Official Title:||Randomized, Double Blind, Double Dummy To Non-Inferiority Comparison Of Ketorolac Tromethamine Oral Drops Versus Naproxen For Moderate to Severe Back Pain Treatment|
- Efficacy of treatment in back pain relief based on Visual Analogic Score (VAS). [ Time Frame: 4 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The individual response rate to the relieve of pain is calculated by measuring VAS during the first and last visit.
The response rate is calculated using the following formula:
Response rate = (VASvi - VASvf) / VASvi
- VASvi: VAS in the first visit;
- VASvf: VAS at the last visit;
- Safety will be evaluated by the adverse events occurrences [ Time Frame: day 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Adverse events will be collected and followed in order to evaluate safety and tolerability
