Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterise the effectiveness of PD-217,014 in the treatment of chronic pain. A numerical pain intensity rating scale is used to assess pain and a mean endpoint (week 4) pain score change from baseline is calculated.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • - Assess the effect of PD-217,014 on responder rate based on the primary endpoint, mean endpoint sleep interference score and the SF-McGill questionnaire (change from baseline to week 4)
