Condition(s) targeted: Osteoarthritis

Intervention: Buprenorphine transdermal patch (Drug); Buprenorphine transdermal patch (Drug)

The original objective of this study was to demonstrate the effectiveness and tolerability of the buprenorphine transdermal system (BTDS) 20 micrograms (mcg)/hour (h) in comparison to the buprenorphine transdermal system 5 mcg/h in subjects with moderate to severe osteoarthritis pain currently treated with oral opioids. The double-blind treatment intervention duration is 12 weeks during which time supplemental analgesic medication (acetaminophen or ibuprofen) will be provided to all subjects in addition to study drug. This study was terminated early due to administrative reasons with only 20% of the planned sample size; therefore, the primary objective was changed to focus on the safety evaluation.
