About the Phase III BEMA buprenorphine trial in opioid-experienced patients
The Phase III clinical trial was an enriched-enrollment, double-blind, randomized withdrawal study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of BEMA buprenorphine in the treatment of chronic lower back pain in opioid-experienced patients. A total of 511 patients who titrated to a well-tolerated, effective dose were randomized to either continue on that dose of BEMA buprenorphine, or receive placebo (BEMA film with no active drug), with treatment continuing for 12 weeks. The primary efficacy endpoint was the mean change in the daily average pain numerical rating scale (NRS-Pain) scores from baseline (just prior to randomization) to week twelve of the double-blind treatment period. Pain was self-reported daily on an 11-point numeric rating scale (daily NRS; 0=no pain, 10=worst possible pain).
