New Opioid Combo Demonstrates Efficacy for Pain, OINV

Charleston Laboratories and Daiichi Sankyo announced that a third Phase 3 clinical trial of CL-108, a novel opioid-containing formulation, met its primary endpoints for the treatment of moderate to severe pain and the prevention of opioid-induced nausea and vomiting (OINV).

The third Phase 3 trial was a randomized, double-blind, placebo- and active-controlled study in over 550 patients with moderate to severe pain post bunionectomy. Results from the study showed that CL-108 demonstrated significant pain relief and prevention of OINV (both P<0.001).  Further study analysis is ongoing and detailed results will be submitted to an upcoming medical conference and peer-reviewed publication.
