Brief Summary:
The primary objective is to determine whether daily dosing with NYX-2925 changes markers of central pain processing in subjects with fibromyalgia by evaluating changes in evoked pain, and visual stimulation, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), resting state function connectivity magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fcMRI) and proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (H-MRS) in fibromyalgia subjects on active drug versus placebo.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fibromyalgia Drug: NYX-2925 Drug: Placebo oral capsule Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a single-blind, exploratory, placebo-controlled, pilot study to assess the efficacy and safety of daily oral NYX-2925 in fibromyalgia subjects. The study will include a screening period (up to 30 days), a placebo period, an active treatment period with, and a follow-up period as follows:

  • Placebo PO Every Day (QD) for 2 weeks
  • NYX-2925 PO QD for 2 weeks (2x)
  • Follow-up for 1 week

Eligible subjects will receive MRIs during the screening period, during the placebo period, during the NYX-2925 PO QD period. Safety assessments will be conducted and adverse events will be collected during the study. Daily pain scores and other fibromyalgia scales will be collected during the study. Daily pain scores and other fibromyalgia scales will be collected for exploratory analysis. During the follow-up period, an optional MRI will be completed for consenting subjects in order to evaluate duration of effect.

Matching placebo capsules.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean (SD) Glx/Total Creatine Levels in Dorsal Anterior Cingulate Cortex (dACC): NYX-2925 20 mg and 200 mg PO QD at Week 4 and Week 6, Respectively. [ Time Frame: Week 2, Week 4, Week 6 ]
  2. Mean (SD) Changes in Posterior Insula (pINS) Glx/Total Creatine Levels Before and After Acute Painful Pressure Stimulation: NYX-2925 20 mg and 200 mg PO QD at Week 4 and Week 6, Respectively. [ Time Frame: Week 2, Week 4, and Week 6 ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Mean Change in Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) Score Assessing Average Pain in the Past 24 Hours [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline, Week 2 (Placebo), Week 4, and Week 6 (NYX-2925) ]
    Numeric pain rating scale is a unidimensional segmented numeric version of the visual analog scale. A subject selects a whole number (0 to 10) that best indicates the intensity of their pain, where 0 represents no pain and 10 the worst pain imaginable.
