A Study to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Multiple Doses of MT-8554 in Subjects with Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) represents a diffuse symmetric and length-dependent injury to peripheral nerves that has major implications on quality of life (QOL), morbidity, and costs from a public health perspective. Painful diabetic neuropathy affects approximately 16% of patients with diabetes. Pharmacological agents used in the management of painful DPN mainly include tricyclic antidepressants, selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, opioid, and anti epileptic drugs. The available treatment options do not give total relief, are not effective in all patients, and only about one-third of patients may achieve more than 50% pain relief. Hence newer therapies are required for the treatment of DPN. The primary outcome measures will be the change from baseline to end of treatment in the mean 24-hour average pain intensity.
This study is to test the effectiveness of pregabalin in treating nerve pain caused by diabetes. The suitable subjects will be patients who also use an non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug for another pain which is not related to the diabetic nerve pain.
The investigators hypothesize that fibromyalgia (FM) and painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy (pDPN) patients with access restrictions on pregabalin will lead to higher healthcare resource use and cost compared to patients without such restrictions on pregabalin in a naturalistic setting. The randomization will occur at the physician level and not the patient level.
