Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary objective of this trial is to evaluate the efficacy of SPM 927 in reducing pain in subjects with diabetic distal sensory polyneuropathy [ Time Frame: Assessments throughout the trial, either daily and/or at clinic visits ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Different qualities of neuropathic pain, sleep and activity (daily assessment during entire trial participation) [ Time Frame: Daily assessment during entire trial participation including visits at the site ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Quality of Life and the Profile of Mood States (assessment at site visits during entire trial participation) [ Time Frame: Daily assessment during entire trial participation including visits at the site ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Investigate the tolerability and safety of SPM927 (assessment during entire trial participation) [ Time Frame: Daily assessment during entire trial participation including visits at the site ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Examine the pharmacokinetics of SPM927 (assessment at all site visits during entire trial participation) [ Time Frame: Daily assessment during entire trial participation including visits at the site ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has clinically diagnosed pain attributed to diabetic distal sensory motor polyneuropathy for 1-5 years and a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus (Type I or Type II).
  • Subjects must have at least moderate pain (mean pain intensity ≥ 4 out of 10 during the baseline week on Likert scale).
  • subjects must have good or fair diabetic control (Hgb A1c < 10%)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has other conditions that cause neuropathic pain at least as severe as the diabetic pain i.e. peripheral arterio-vascular disease.
  • Subject receives treatment for seizures.
  • Subject has had any amputations other than diabetically-related toe amputations.
  • Subject has major skin ulcers.
  • Subject has clinically significant ECG abnormalities.
  • Subject is expected to take within 7 days prior to randomization and during the study: TCAs, mexiletine hydrochloride, lidoderm patch, tramadol, AEDs, dextromethorphan, opioids, capsaicin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, acetaminophen / paracetamol, skeletal muscle relaxants, benzodiazepines, alpha-2-agonists (e.g. clonidine), drugs indicated for sleep disturbance (e. g. zolpidem tartrate, zaleplon) and over-the-counter medications with centrally acting properties.
  • Subject has laboratory values which are outside the normal range and judged by the investigator to be clinically significant.
  • At study entry, subject has liver function tests values (AST, ALT,alkaline phosphatase, total bilirubin and GGT) 2 times upper limit of normal.
  • subject has impaired renal function, i.e., creatinine clearance is lower than 60 mL/min.
