About the study

This is a Phase 3, Multicenter, Randomized, 22 Week, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled and 3-Week, Open-Label Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of X0002 Spray in relief of the signs and symptoms of Subjects with Osteoarthritis of the Lumbar Spine. To evaluate the efficacy of X0002 spray compared to placebo for the relief of low back pain disability in subjects with osteoarthritis (OA) of the low back.

Who can take part?

You may be eligible to participate in the study if you meet the following criteria:

Inclusion criteria
  1. diagnosis) of clinically symptomatic OA of the lumbar spine for ≥3 months at Screening. 6. Must have a Lane Radiographic Grading Scale summary score for lumbar spine OA (levels L1 through
  2. L5) of 1 or 2 as determined by a central radiologist at Screening. 7. Must have had low back pain while standing, walking, and/or on motion for at least 14 days during the month prior to Screening per subject self-report documented by the investigator. 8. Must have a score ≥4 and ≤9 on a 0 to 10 (11
  3. point) NPRS (without analgesic medication other than rescue medication provided by the
  4. Sponsor) over the previous 7 days prior to Baseline (Day 1). 9. Must have an ODI score ≥40% and ≤90 % at Screening Visit and Baseline (Day 1). 10. With the exception of OA of the lumbar spine, must be in good general health with no clinically significant findings from medical history, vital signs, physical examination, ECG, and routine laboratory tests that could interfere with subject safety, pain or functional assessments, as determined by the investigator. 11. Female subjects must either not be of childbearing potential defined as
  5. 1) postmenopausal for at least 1 year; follicle stimulating hormone [FSH] must be in postmenopausal range for the central lab if used to confirm postmenopausal status in a woman not using estrogen replacement therapy OR
  6. 2) surgically sterile [i.e., bilateral tubal ligation, bilateral oophorectomy, or hysterectomy]) or be willing to practice abstinence or at least 1 of the following medically acceptable methods of birth control: - Hormonal methods such as oral, implantable, injectable, vaginal ring, or transdermal contraceptives for a minimum of 1 full cycle (based on the subject's usual menstrual cycle
  7. period) before study drug administration; - Intrauterine device; - Double-barrier method (condoms, sponge, or diaphragm with spermicidal jellies or cream).
Exclusion criteria
  1. routine) for the duration of the study starting at Screening Visit and through their completion of participation in the study. Normal physical activity is allowed. 2. Has an active or pending workman's compensation claim or litigation related to back pain. 3. Has secondary OA of the low back or OA of lower limb joints that, in the opinion of the investigator, could interfere with pain and functional assessments related to the low back. 4. Has a history of spinal surgery. 5. Has more than 25% improvement from Numeric Pain Rating Scale (
  2. NPRS) score at the Screening visit to the average NPRS score over the previous 7 days prior to Day 1. 6. Has had significant injury, as judged by the investigator, involving the back within the 6 months before Screening. 7. Has been diagnosed with or has signs and symptoms of a radiculopathy, e.g., numbness or tingling in a dermatomal distribution of a lower limb, sciatica, as well as etiologies of low back pain other than OA. 8. Has skin lesions or wounds on or near the lumbar spine area to be treated at Screening or on Day 1, which may influence absorption of the medication or confound safety assessments per the investigator's opinion. 9. Has used gabapentin, pregabalin, antiepileptics, or specific antidepressants (i.e., tricyclics, serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, or selective serotonin reuptake
  3. inhibitors) to treat pain in the 14 days before Screening. Other uses not related to the pain treatment may be permitted at the medical monitor's discretion provided they have been at a stable dose for at least 90 days. 10. Has had injections of corticosteroids, botulinum toxin, or viscosupplements (e.g., Synvisc®) to the spine area (eg., intra articular [IA], epidural or
  4. paraspinal) within the 12 weeks before Screening. 11. Has had IA, intradiscal or intravenous (
  5. IV) stem cell therapy in the 6 months prior to Screening. 12. Has received concomitant non-pharmacologic treatments (e.g., physiotherapy,
  6. acupuncture) that per investigator opinion could confound efficacy assessments within 14 days of Day 1. 13. Is not willing to discontinue any NSAIDs or other analgesics (i.e., acetaminophen other than rescue medication supplied by the Sponsor, and cyclooxygenase-2 [COX-2] inhibitors), other treatments such as cannabis, and any topical therapies (e.g., anesthetics,
  7. capsaicin) or potentially confounding concomitant nonpharmacologic treatments (e.g., physiotherapy,
  8. acupuncture) starting at Screening Visit until completing participation in the study (the use of ≤325 mg acetylsalicylic acid per day for cardiac prophylaxis is permitted). 14. Is not willing to discontinue applying any topical preparations containing Vitamin A acids (including all trans retinoic acid [tretinoin], 13 cis retinoic acid [isotretinoin], 9 cis retinoic acid [alitretinoin], Vitamin A [retinol], retinal, and their
  9. derivatives) to the low back starting at Screening Visit until completing participation in the study. Topical preparations containing Vitamin A acids or retinol may be applied to areas of the skin above the shoulders or to the lower extremities. 15. Has a history of significant hypersensitivity, intolerance, or allergy to ibuprofen, any other NSAIDs, aspirin, or acetaminophen. 16.
