DPN: diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
Not an actual patient.
In a clinical study, QUTENZA was shown to provide up to 3 months of sustained relief of pain associated with DPN and a faster time to treatment was achieved with QUTENZA vs placebo in adult patients after a single application
QUTENZA delivered statistically and clinically significant pain relief from baseline to Week 12 (vs placebo)1,2
Secondary endpoint: Proportion of patients achieving ≥30% reduction in pain from baseline1
Secondary endpoint: After a single application, the average time to treatment response for patients with QUTENZA was 19 days vs 72 days for those patients who received placebo1
Kaplan–Meier curves for median time to treatment response (30% reduction in average daily pain; safety analysis set).
50% of patients achieved at least a 30% reduction in average daily pain score.
Efficacy was demonstrated regardless of concomitant use of other medications
Approximately half of the patients in the studies were taking concomitant medications, including anticonvulsants, non-selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants, or opioids, at study entry and were required to keep dosing stable throughout the duration of the study.2
