  Purpose
The aim of the project is to do a fase two trial, where the effect of a local anesthetic lozenge will be tested in regard to oral pain, dryness of the mouth, irregularity of taste as well as investigate a potential antiinflammatory effect in patients with burning mouth syndrome, Sjögrens syndrome and lichen planus.

Chronic Pain Drug: Bupivacaine Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment

Further study details as provided by Anne Marie Lynge Pedersen, University of Copenhagen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of oral pain on the Visual Analog Scale [ Time Frame: The patients assess their oral pain when they attend the four examinations and they fill in a diary for a total of four weeks. ]

    Assessment of oral pain in patients with burning mouth syndrome, Sjögrens syndrome or lichen planus after treatment with a bupivacaine lozenge or a placebo lozenge.

    The patient assess their oral pain on the visual analog scale when they attend the four examinations. The patients also fill in a diary for a total of four weeks where they are in treatment where they assess VAS for pain, dryness of the mouth and irregularity of taste



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure the inflammation markers in blood, saliva and tissue [ Time Frame: Blood- and saliva samples are taken the four times the patient attend the examinations. They are taken over a periode of five weeks. Tissue samples are taken before the first treatment period starts and when the final treatment period is finished. ]
    The inflammation markers in blood, saliva and tissue will be analyzed to investigate if there are changes in the level in patients with chronic oral pain.


Enrollment: 31
Study Start Date: April 2012
Study Completion Date: August 2014
Primary Completion Date: January 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Placebo lozenge
The patients will be randomized to start two weeks treatment with either a bupivacaine lozenge or a placebo lozenge (taken three times a day). The two weeks treatment is followed by a week without treatment. Afterwards they start another two weeks treatment with the opposite type of lozenge from the first treatment period.
Drug: Placebo
Placebo lozenge taken three times a day for two weeks
Active Comparator: Bupivacaine lozenge
The patient will be randomized to start two weeks treatment with either a bupivacaine lozenge or a placebo lozenge (taken three times a day). The two weeks treatment is followed by a week without treatment. Afterwards the patient starts another two weeks treatment with the opposite type of lozenge from the first treatment period.
Drug: Bupivacaine
Bupivacaine lozenge taken 3 times a day for two weeks
