NUCYNTA: WELL-DEFINED TOLERABILITY1
DISCONTINUATION RATES DUE TO AEs IN AN END-STAGE DEGENERATIVE JOINT DISEASE STUDY1Study Design +
- Safety population (n=666): All subjects with end-stage degenerative joint disease receiving at least 1 study drug intake following randomization
Oxycodone IR was included in the study as an active control.1
AEs= adverse events.
In a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, active‑ and placebo‑controlled, parallel group, phase 3 study, subjects who were candidates for joint replacement surgery due to end‑stage joint disease (n=659, ITT) were selected to assess the efficacy and safety of NUCYNTA. Patients were randomized 1:1:1:1 to receive NUCYNTA 50 mg, 75 mg, oxycodone IR 10 mg, or placebo. Patients received study drug every 4 to 6 hours during waking hours for 10 days. The primary efficacy endpoint was the sum of pain intensity difference (SPID) over 5 days.1
