Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to obtain pharmacokinetic data for a dose proportionality and relative bioavailability assessment of 2nd generation BTDS patches compared to 1st generation BTDS patches.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pain Drug: Second generation BTDS patch Drug: First generation BuTrans patch Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The objective is to examine a new 2nd generation BTDS patch formulation at 2 strengths: 3.15 mg and 12.6 mg, compared to 1st generation patches at 2 strengths: 5 mg and 20 mg, to assess dose proportionality and relative bioavailability before proceeding to a definitive program of studies. Determination is by measurement of drug concentrations in the blood at serial collection time points pre-dose until 288 hours post-patch application.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics parameters [ Time Frame: Up to 288 hours ]
    AUC and Cmax

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse events [ Time Frame: 7 to 10 days ]
    AEs will be recorded through spontaneous reporting

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Vital Signs composite measure [ Time Frame: 0-288 hours ]
    Vital signs are collected as a composite measure- blood pressure, pulse rate, tympanic temperature, respiration rate, SpO2

  2. Clinical Laboratory Tests [ Time Frame: Day 0 and Day 7-10 ]
    Blood samples will be taken at screening, pre dose, 192 hours, and post study medical for routine blood chemistry and urinalysis

  3. ECG [ Time Frame: Screening, pre dose, 72, 120, 168hours, and day 7-10 ]
