Change in Weekly Average Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) Score From Baseline to End of Treatment (Week 2 of Each Treatment Period) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 2 of Treatment Period 1 or 2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The NPRS is an 11-point scale (0 to 10) with 0 indicating no pain and 10 indicating the worst possible pain. The mean of the daily average scores were calculated from the NPRS pain assessments obtained up to 3 times per day over a 7-day period.

Study to Assess the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of ADL5747 in Participants With Postherpetic Neuralgia
A Phase 2A, Randomized, Blinded, Placebo- and Active-controlled, 2-Period Crossover Study to Assess the Analgesic Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of ADL5747 in Subjects With Postherpetic Neuralgia
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the analgesic efficacy of ADL5747 in participants with postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of ADL5747.

Postherpetic Neuralgia
  • Drug: ADL5747
  • Drug: Placebo
  • Drug: Pregabalin
    Other Name: Lyrica
  • Experimental: ADL5747
    ADL5747 150 milligrams (mg) administered orally as 1 ADL5747 150-mg capsule and 1 placebo capsule twice daily (BID) for 14 days during 1 of 2 Treatment Periods.
    Interventions:
    • Drug: ADL5747
    • Drug: Placebo
  • Placebo Comparator: Placebo

    Placebo: two placebo capsules administered orally BID for 14 days during 1 of 2 Treatment Periods.

    Participants were also administered placebo orally BID during a 14-day washout period that took place between Treatment Period 1 and Treatment Period 2.

    Intervention: Drug: Placebo
  • Active Comparator: Pregabalin
    Pregabalin administered orally as a dose of 1 pregabalin 75-mg capsule and 1 placebo capsule BID for the first 3 days, increased to a dose of 1 pregabalin 150-mg capsule and 1 placebo capsule BID for the last 11 days of 1 of 2 fourteen-day Treatment Periods, followed by a dose of 1 pregabalin 75-mg capsule and 1 placebo capsule BID for 3 days as a taper period.

  • be willing and able to understand and comply with protocol requirements, dietary and dosing regimens, and other protocol instructions and restrictions (for example, forgo use of their normal pain medication and other protocol specified prohibited medications for the duration of the study)
  • for male participants, be surgically sterile or agree to use an appropriate method of contraception or have a sexual partner who is surgically sterile or using an insertable, injectable, transdermal, or combination oral contraceptive approved and deemed highly effective by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from the first dose of study medication through 30 days after the last dose of study medication on Day 49
  • for female participants of childbearing potential, be using an insertable, injectable, transdermal, or combination oral contraceptive approved and deemed highly effective by the FDA from the first dose of study medication through 30 days after the last dose of study medication on Day 49 and have negative results on a serum pregnancy test during the start of the screening period to obtain informed consent and determine eligibility for the study (Day -37 to -14) and on a urine pregnancy test during the start of the first week of Treatment Period 1 (Day 1) (women who are surgically sterile [for example, hysterectomy, tubal ligation] or postmenopausal [if ≥ 55 years old, no menses for at least 2 years; if < 55 years old, follicle stimulating hormone concentrations within the postmenopausal range of > 40 milli-International Units per milliliter (mIU/mL) and 17 β estradiol levels of < 37 picograms per milliliter (pg/mL)] are also eligible to participate)

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • have had a treatment that included local anesthetic nerve blocks within 30 days before the start of the baseline week for Treatment Period 1 (Day -7)
  • have any other type of pain that may impair the self-assessment of pain due to PHN
  • have, as determined by the investigator or the sponsor's medical monitor, a history or clinical manifestations of significant renal, hepatic, hematologic, cardiovascular, metabolic, gastrointestinal, neurologic, psychiatric, or other condition that would preclude participation in the study
  • have an active malignancy of any type (participants with a history of successfully treated malignancy > 5 years before the scheduled first dose of study medication and participants with treated basal or squamous cell cancer may be enrolled)
