WAYNE, Pa., Aug. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Egalet Corporation (EGLT) ("Egalet"), a fully integrated specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing innovative treatments for pain and other conditions today announced that researchers will present scientific data at PAINWeek 2016 on September 8 in Las Vegas. Four presentations will be on abuse-deterrent product candidate ARYMO™ ER (morphine sulfate) Extended-Release Tablets; one presentation will address abuse-deterrent properties of Egalet's proprietary Guardian™ Technology; and one presentation will be on marketed product OXAYDO® (oxycodone HCl, USP) tablets CII.
ARYMO ER was developed for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate. ARYMO ER uses Egalet's proprietary Guardian™ Technology, a polymer matrix tablet technology which is combined with a novel application of the manufacturing process of injection molding. This results in tablets with controlled-release properties as well as physical and chemical features that have been demonstrated to resist both common and rigorous methods of manipulation, in order to deter common routes of abuse. OXAYDO is an immediate-release oral formulation of oxycodone HCl indicated for the management of acute and chronic moderate to severe pain where the use of an opioid analgesic is appropriate. In addition, it is also the only approved immediate-release opioid designed to discourage abuse via snorting.
"Our presentations at PAINWeek will highlight the breadth of data on our product candidate ARYMO ER which uses Egalet's Guardian™ Technology to achieve both abuse-deterrent and extended-release properties," said Jeffrey Dayno, MD, Egalet's chief medical officer. "In addition, we also will present results from Category 1 abuse-deterrent experiments with OXAYDO, which assessed the challenges of syringeability and potential for abuse deterrence via the intravenous route of administration. We look forward to sharing these data with attendees at the upcoming PAINWeek conference."
The following posters will be presented during the PAINWeek 2016 poster session on Thursday, September 8 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm:

Egalet, a fully integrated specialty pharmaceutical company, is focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing innovative treatments for pain and other conditions. Egalet has two approved products: OXAYDO® (oxycodone HCI, USP) tablets for oral use only –CII and SPRIX® (ketorolac tromethamine) Nasal Spray. In addition, using its proprietary Guardian™ Technology, Egalet is developing a pipeline of clinical-stage, product candidates that are specifically designed to deter abuse by physical and chemical manipulation. The lead programs, ARYMO™ ER, an abuse-deterrent, extended-release, oral morphine formulation, and Egalet-002, an abuse-deterrent, extended-release, oral oxycodone formulation, are being developed for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate. Egalet's Guardian Technology can be applied broadly across different classes of pharmaceutical products and can be used to develop combination products that include multiple active pharmaceutical ingredients with similar or different release profiles.
