Long Term Safety and Efficacy Study of Tanezumab in Japanese Adult Subjects With Chronic Low Back Pain


Brief description of study

This study will investigate the long-term safety and efficacy of a fixed dose of tanezumab 5 mg and 10 mg administered subcutaneously (SC) seven times at 8 week intervals. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long term safety of tanezumab 5 mg and 10 mg administrated SC every 8 weeks (7 administrations). In addition, the study will evaluate the long term analgesic efficacy of tanezumab 5 mg and 10 mg SC administered every 8 weeks (7 administrations).

Detailed Study Description

This is a randomized, double-blind, active-controlled, multicenter, parallel-group Phase 3 study of the safety and efficacy of tanezumab when administered by SC injection for up to 56 weeks in subjects with chronic low back pain. Approximately 390 subjects will be randomized to 1 of 3 treatment groups in a 1:1:1 ratio (ie, 130 subjects per treatment group). Treatment groups will include: 1) Placebo SC matching tanezumab administered at an 8-week interval (total of 7 times) plus celecoxib 100 mg twice a day (BID) to be administered orally for 56 weeks; 2) Tanezumab 5 mg SC administered at an 8-week interval (total of 7 times) plus placebo matching celecoxib to be administered orally BID for 56 weeks; 3) Tanezumab 10 mg SC administered at an 8-week interval (total of 7 times) plus placebo matching celecoxib to be administered orally BID for 56 weeks. The study is designed with a total duration (post-randomization) of up to 80 weeks and will consist of three periods: Screening (up to 37 days; includes a Washout Period and an Initial Pain Assessment Period [IPAP]), a Double-blind Treatment Period (56 weeks) and a Follow-up Period (24 weeks). The Screening Period (beginning up to 37 days prior to Randomization) includes a Washout Period (lasting 2 to 32 days), if required, and an IPAP (the 5 days prior to Randomization/Baseline). Prior to entering the study, subjects must be experiencing some benefit (eg, analgesic effect) from their current stable dose regimen of oral NSAID (celecoxib, loxoprofen or meloxicam) treatment, be tolerating their NSAID regimen, be taking this medication regularly (defined as an average of at least 5 days per week) during the 30 day period prior to the Screening Visit.
