Brief Summary:
This is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind clinical trial to examine the comparative effects on OAKP of CGS-200-1 (1% Capsaicin content) (N=40), CGS-200-5 (5% Capsaicin content) (N=40), and CGS-200 Vehicle (no Capsaicin) (N=40) in subjects with OA of the knees according to the 1986 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria. Assigned doses will be applied at the clinic for 60 minutes on each of four consecutive days.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Osteoarthritis, Knee Pain Drug: CGS-200-1 Drug: CGS-200-5 Drug: CGS-200 Vehicle Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Subjects will be randomized to one of the three Arms in this study: CGS-200-1 or CGS-200-5 or CGS-200 Vehicle (CGS-200-0). All subjects will receive 4 consecutive days of treatment and will then be followed up until the Day 94 visit.

Even though both knee(s) will receive application of study test materials, with regard to reduction in WOMAC pain and VAS pain score associated with study treatments, only one knee will be indicated as the "Study Knee". This will be the knee with the highest WOMAC pain score at screening. If both knees have equal WOMAC pain scores at baseline, then the right knee will be considered the "Study Knee" with regard to WOMAC pain and VAS pain score reduction.

Data will be collected from Day 1 through Day 5 and then again on Days 19, 35, 64 and 94 for efficacy, tolerability, and safety measures. The Investigators, all site staff and Clinical Research Organization (CRO) personnel (except the Medical Monitor providing safety oversight) directly involved in the study will remain blinded to the treatment assignment throughout the trial.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary Efficacy Endpoint: Change in Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) Pain Score From Baseline to Day 35 [ Time Frame: 35 days after the last dose of study drug on Day 4 ]

    The Primary Efficacy endpoint of this study will be to examine the extent of change in the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) pain score, relative to baseline, provided by once daily, one-hour application of Vehicle (CGS-200-0), CGS-200-1 and CGS-200-5 at Baseline (< 30 minutes prior to first daily application) and Day 35 (31 days after fourth daily application).

    The Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) pain score is 5 questions relating to pain that the subject responds to using a 100mm visual analogue scale. The minimum score is 0 and the maximum score is 500. Reduction in pain is expressed as a difference from baseline to Study Day 35. Positive numbers indicate increases and negative numbers indicate decreases. .



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Secondary Efficacy Endpoint #1: Extent of Change in Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) Pain Score From Baseline to Day 5, 19, 64 and 94. [ Time Frame: Days 5, 19, 65 and 94 after the last dose of study drug on Day 4 ]

    The extent of change in the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) pain score, relative to baseline, provided by once daily, one-hour application of CGS-200-0, CGS-200-1 and CGS-200-5 from Baseline to Day 5, 19, 64 and Day 94.

    The Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) pain score is 5 questions relating to pain that the subject responds to using a 100mm visual analogue scale. The minimum score is 0 and the maximum score is 500. Positive numbers indicate increases and negative numbers indicate decreases.


  2. Patient Reported Burning-Stinging Pain (BSP) During Application of Study Drug. [ Time Frame: 60 minutes after study drug application on Study Days 1,2,3,4 ]
    The average amount of burning-sting pain as reported by the subject using a 0 - 10 numerical rating scale (NRS). Higher scores indicate more pain.

  3. Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis (WOMAC) Index Stiffness Scores. [ Time Frame: Day 5, 19, 35, 64 and 94 days after the last dose of study drug on Study Day 4 ]

    Day 5, 19, 35, 64 and 94 Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis (WOMAC) Index Stiffness Scores.

    The Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) total score is 2 questions relating to stiffness that the subject responds to using a 100mm visual analogue scale. The minimum score is 0 and the maximum score is 200. Positive numbers indicate increases and negative numbers indicate decreases.


  4. Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis (WOMAC) Index Function Scores. [ Time Frame: Day 5, 19, 35, 64 and 94 days after the last dose of study drug on Study Day 4 ]

    Day 5, 19, 35, 64 and 94 Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis (WOMAC) Index Function Scores.

    The Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) Function score is 17 questions relating to physical function that the subject responds to using a 100mm visual analogue scale. The minimum score is 0 and the maximum score is 1700. Positive numbers indicate increases and negative numbers indicate decreases.



Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Number of Subjects With Skin Reactions of Erythema or Pruritus. [ Time Frame: Study Day 1 through Study Day 35 after the first application of study drug (Study Day 1) ]
    Investigator reports of erythema or pruritus at the site of study drug application.

  2. Number of Subjects With Durability of Efficacy Response [ Time Frame: Days 35, 64 and 94 day after the last dose of study drug on Study Day 4 ]
    Subjects who had a clinical response (i.e., reduction of at least 50% in WOMAC pain score) at the Day 5 visit and who remained at this reduction of pain score or lower at Days 19, 35, 64, and the Day 94 visit were considered to have a durable clinical response through Day 94. Subjects who had a clinical response at no more than one of the post Day 5 visits were considered to have a durable response through the last day at which reduction in WOMAC pain score is at least 50%. Subjects who had less than 50% WOMAC pain score reduction on two or more of the post Day 5 visits were considered to have failed to achieve a durable clinical response.
