Efficacy and safety of controlled-release oxycodone for the management of moderate-to-severe chronic low back pain in Japan: results of an enriched enrollment randomized withdrawal study followed by an open-label extension study.


Oxycodone is one of the options for the management of CLBP in patients with an inadequate response to other analgesics. However, oxycodone is not yet approved for noncancer pain in Japan. Here, we assessed the efficacy and long-term safety of S-8117, a controlled-release oxycodone formulation, for the management of Japanese CLBP patients.
