Brief Summary:
The study will include three (3) phases: Screening Phase, Treatment Phase, and Follow-up Phase. Subjects who qualify to participate will apply study drug to their feet three times daily and will record their daily pain scores using an interactive voice response system (IVRS) during the Treatment Phase for 12 weeks. Approximately 100 adult subjects will be randomized to receive Clonidine Gel or Clonidine Gel Comparator.

Detailed Description:
Study CLO-291 is a randomized, double-blind, comparator-controlled, parallel-group, multicenter study of 0.1% clonidine topical gel (Clonidine Gel) for the treatment of pain associated with painful diabetic neuropathy. The study will include three (3) phases: Screening Phase, Treatment Phase, and Follow-up Phase. Subjects who satisfy all eligibility criteria will apply Clonidine Gel Comparator to their feet three times daily and will record their daily pain scores using an interactive voice response system (IVRS). Approximately 100 adult subjects will be randomized to receive Clonidine Gel or Clonidine Gel Comparator during the 12 week Treatment Phase.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline to Day 84 (Week 12) in Numeric Pain Rating Scale Score [ Time Frame: The change from Baseline (averaged over Day -14 to Day -8) to End-of-Treatment (averaged over Days 78 to 84 [±3 days]) ]
    The Numeric Pain Rating Scale is a single reading that measures the patients interpretation of their pain on a scale from 0, no pain to 10, worst pain imaginable. The change from baseline can range from -10 to 10. The change from Baseline (averaged over Day -14 to Day -8) to End-of-Treatment (averaged over Days 78 to 84 [±3 days]) in the Numeric Pain Rating Scale score assessing the "average pain in the past 24 hours in the painful areas of the feet" averaged over Days 78 to 84 compared to the 7 days at the Baseline Phase (Days -14 to -8). For the primary efficacy endpoint, the mean change in pain intensity from Baseline to Week 12 was analyzed using an analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) model with the Baseline pain intensity score serving as a covariate. The statistical model also included treatment, site, site by treatment interaction, and strata. If the site by treatment interaction term was not significant at the 0.1 level, then it was excluded from the model.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Daily Worst Pain Intensity Numeric Pain Rating Scale Scores [ Time Frame: The change from Baseline (worse over Day -14 to Day -8) to End-of-Treatment (worse over Days 78 to 84 [±3 days]) ]
    The Numeric Pain Rating Scale is a single reading that measures the patients interpretation of their pain on a scale from 0, no pain to 10, worst pain imaginable. The change from baseline can range from -10 to 10.

For the primary efficacy endpoint, the mean change in pain intensity from Baseline to Week 12 was analyzed using an analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) model with the Baseline pain intensity score serving as a covariate.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject is fluent in English and has provided written informed consent.
  2. Subject is an outpatient ≥18 years of age at the time of the Screening Visit.
  3. Subject has Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes mellitus with a hemoglobin A1C value < 10% and has been stable on therapy (diet, oral anti-hyperglycemic, and/or insulin) for at least six (6) months prior to the Screening Visit.
  4. Subject is a male or non-pregnant, non-lactating female. Females must be practicing an acceptable method of birth control or be surgically sterile or postmenopausal (amenorrhea for ≥12 months). A negative pregnancy test at the Screening and Day 1 visits is required for females of child-bearing potential. Double-barrier methods, hormonal contraceptives, and abstinence are acceptable birth control methods for this study.
  5. Subject has chronic pain attributable to a symmetrical stocking distribution neuropathy in the lower extremities for at least six (6) months. Pain should be clearly localized to the area of neuropathy (feet), and subjects should be able to distinguish the target pain from other painful areas and conditions.
  6. Subject has an average pain score relevant to the target pain in the feet of ≥4 on an 11 point numerical pain rating scale over the previous 24 hours at the Screening Visit.
  7. Subject meets a pre-specified, minimum numerical pain rating scale score following capsaicin skin challenge.
  8. Subject must satisfactorily complete Accurate Pain Reporting and Minimizing Placebo Response Training.
  9. Subject must have moderate to severe pain during the Screening Run-in Phase.
