Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the impact of treatment with Decapeptyl SR plus Livial on CCPP throughout the 24 month treatment period [ Time Frame: baseline, month 12, month 24 and month 30 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To asses effect of Decapeptyl SR on pain, disability, overall health status and quality of life [ Time Frame: baseline and 3 monthly until study end ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: December 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Decapeptyl SR 11.25mg
    11.25 mgs, Intra muscular (IM) every 3 months for 2 years
    Other Name: Triptorelin acetate
Detailed Description:

A screening visit,will be performed and written informed consent will be obtained from the patient. In addition the patient's medical history will be checked, vital signs recorded, pain and general health questionnaires completed, blood samples collected and any prior or concomitant medications will be noted. Bone density will be determined using a DEXA scan performed in the interval between the screening and baseline visits. One month after the screening visit, patients will return to the clinic for the baseline visit. At this visit a physical examination and urine pregnancy test will be performed, vital signs measured, specific validated questionnaires on pain and endometriosis related health will be completed and symptoms of oestrogen deficiency will be documented. Patients who are still considered to be eligible for the trial will receive an injection of Decapeptyl SR 11.25 mg, and will be dispensed sufficient Livial 2.5 mg tablets to last until the next study visit. Patients will return for repeat Decapeptyl SR injections every 3 months until Month 21 at which time the last Decapeptyl SR injection will be administered. At these visits patients will also be dispensed further supplies of Livial.

Follow−up assessments will be performed during the treatment period 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months after the baseline visit. A final follow−up assessment will be conducted 6 months after stopping treatment. At each follow−up visit specific validated questionnaires on pain and endometriosis related health will be collected and symptoms of oestrogen deficiency will be noted. Physical examination, vital signs, bone density assessment and haematology and biochemistry analysis will be repeated at selected timepoints.

Health economic data will be collected at all study visits.
