Studies in year one have shown that the rat dorsal burn wound model is appropriate for testing the analgesic and healing rate efficacy of test drugs. This model was used to test Indomethacin-PC Indo-PC, Indomethacin and appropriate controls when administered either topically or parenterally. The experimental drug Indo-PC showed significant analgesic efficacy over Indo alone at an early time point when the drugs were administered subcutaneously, and Indo-PC also tended to provide better analgesia than Indo alone after topical administration. No differences in healing rate were evident from any treatment. These studies support a rationale for continued development of Indo-PC for treatment of acute pain caused by 2nd degree burn wounds.
