SEGLENTIS was evaluated in a
Phase 3 clinical trial

Study design: SEGLENTIS in acute pain after bunionectomy and osteotomy1

The efficacy and safety of SEGLENTIS were evaluated in a pivotal, Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group study comparing SEGLENTIS to tramadol hydrochloride, celecoxib, and placebo (NCT03108482).1

Study details1:

Efficacy and safety of SEGLENTIS clinical trial chart

ANCOVA, analysis of covariance; LS, least squares; NPRS, numeric pain rating scale; SPID48, sum of pain intensity difference over 48 hours.

Total daily dose: 400 mg of SEGLENTIS (2x 56-mg celecoxib/44-mg tramadol hydrochloride tablets, twice a day), 200 mg of tramadol hydrochloride (50 mg 4 times a day), 200 mg of celecoxib (100 mg twice a day), or placebo 4 times a day.2

LS means the P values calculated from ANCOVA. Error bars represent 95% confidence internal.2

The Phase 3 factorial study compared lower doses of tramadol hydrochloride and celecoxib than are optimal for treatment of acute pain, and this study is not suitable for making comparative efficacy claims.2
