Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 364 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Double-dummy, Parallel Group, Single-center Study Evaluating the Analgesic Effect of Single Doses of Lumiracoxib 400 mg, Celecoxib 400 mg and Placebo in the Treatment of Post-dental Surgery Pain
Study Start Date : February 2006
Actual Primary Completion Date : May 2006

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Superiority of a single dose of lumiracoxib 400 mg compared to placebo and celecoxib 400 mg based on a Summed (time weighted) Pain Intensity Difference calculated over 0-8 hours post-dose (SPID-8)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate efficacy of a single dose of lumiracoxib 400 mg compared to placebo and to celecoxib 400 mg in relieving post dental surgery pain with respect to the following secondary efficacy variables:
  2. Time-specific Pain intensity Difference (PID) based on the categorical scale, Pain Relief (PR) based on the categorical scale, and Pain Relief Intensity Difference (PRID) (sum of PID and PR based on categorical scales) at time-points up to 24 hours after
  3. Time-specific PID based on VAS at time-points up to 24 hours after dosing
