The NDA submission is based on pharmacokinetic studies that demonstrated bioequivalence of Arymo ER 15mg, 30mg, and 60mg tablets to equivalent doses of MS Contin (morphine sulfate controlled-release). The company also submitted abuse-deterrent studies (Category 1, 2, 3). These demonstrated Arymo ER’s properties resistance to methods of manipulation—including intravenous injection, snorting and oral abuse.

Morphine sulfate is a Schedule II opioid agonist.
