Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain relief from pain score reduction, using visual analog scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: September 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Matched gel base of capsaicin nanoparticle
Drug: Placebo
Identical cream base of nanoparticle apply to area with neuropathic pain twice daily for 12 weeks
Experimental: Capsaicin
0.075% capsaicin nanoparticle gel
Drug: 0.75% capsaicin nanoparticle cream
0.75% capsaicin nanoparticle cream apply to area with neuropathic pain twice daily for 12 weeks

Detailed Description:

Painful diabetic neuropathy is the most common cause of neuropathic pain. 0.075% topical capsaicin has been used to treat the pain. Because of high concentration, conventional capsaicin topical preparation causing burning sensation and required several time of applications per day.

The nanoparticle of capsaicin topical preparation was developed with expectation of remaining efficacy, minimizing burning sensation and improving convenience of use.
