This study is designed to investigate the efficacy and safety of a single daily dose of 400 mg lumiracoxib given pre-emptively versus post-operatively in terms of efficacy in reducing pain associated with ambulatory arthroscopic knee surgery
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group Study to Compare Efficacy of a Single Dose of Lumiracoxib 400 mg Given Pre-Emptively Versus Post-Operatively, in Reducing Pain Associated With Ambulatory Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Pain Intensity (PI) in the target knee after movement at the 2 h time-point
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- PI at 1, 2, 3, 4 and 24 h time-points while at rest
- PI at 1, 3, 4 and 24 h time-points after movement
- Time to first rescue medication intake
- Patient's global evaluation of response to study medication
- Safety and tolerability profile
