Egalet-001 met primary endpoint of reduced drug liking compared to MS Contin®
Egalet Corporation (Nasdaq: EGLT) (“Egalet”) today announced positive results from a Category 3 human abuse liability (HAL) study of Egalet-001, an abuse-deterrent, extended-release, oral morphine formulation in late-stage clinical development for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock opioid treatment and for which alternative treatments are inadequate. The clinical HAL study demonstrated that in nondependent, recreational opioid users, the abuse potential of manipulated Egalet-001 taken orally was significantly lower than that for manipulated MS Contin (morphine sulfate controlled-release).
