Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CII Drug
Open Label
Drug: oxymorphone HCl
Comparison of different dosages of drug, 0.05mg/kg, 0.10mg/kg, 0.15mg/kg or 0.20mg/kg oral liquid oxymorphone
Other Name: Opana

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assessment of safety and tolerability will be based on the incidence of Adverse Events(AEs), AEs resulting in discontinuation and serious adverse events [ Time Frame: Safety = Up to 48 hours ]
    Single Dose (pain assessment) Effectiveness = baseline, .25. .5. 1. 1.5. 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24 post dose; Multi-Dose (pain assessment) Effectiveness= baseline, .5, 1, 1.5, and 2 hrs post dose 1; and immediately prior to all remaining doses administered up through 48 hrs.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine and report the the pharmacokinetic profile of oxymorphone IR oral liquid in pediatric subjects in order to determine appropriate dosing recommendations. [ Time Frame: Up to 48 Hours ]
    Single-Dose PK: baseline, .25, .5, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, & 24 hrs; Multi-Dose PK = baseline, .5, 1, 1.5, and 2 hrs post dose 1; immediately prior to doses 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7; and at .5, 1, 1.5 and 2 hrs post Dose 7.

  7. On an intravenous analgesic regimen utilizing a short-acting opioid analgesic following surgery AND anticipated to be switched to an oral opioid as part of the analgesic regimen (according to institution SOC)
  8. Demonstrated the ability to tolerate clear fluids following surgery according to the SOC at each institution
  9. Informed of the nature of the study and written informed consent has been obtained from the legally responsible parent(s)/legal guardian(s)
  10. Provided assent in accordance with IRB requirements
  11. Line in place for blood sampling

Exclusion Criteria:
