technology platforms. Nektar has a robust R&D pipeline of potentially
high-value therapeutics in oncology, pain and other therapeutic areas. In the
area of pain, Nektar has an exclusive worldwide license agreement with
AstraZeneca for naloxegol (NKTR-118), an investigational drug candidate, which
has completed Phase 3 development as a once- daily, oral tablet for the
treatment of opioid-induced constipation. This agreement also includes
NKTR-119, an earlier stage development program that is a co-formulation of
naloxegol and an opioid. NKTR-181, a novel mu-opioid analgesic candidate for
chronic pain conditions, is in Phase 2 development in osteoarthritis patients
with chronic knee pain. NKTR-192, a novel mu-opioid analgesic in development
to treat acute pain is in Phase 1 clinical development. In oncology,
etirinotecan pegol (NKTR-102) is being evaluated in a Phase 3 clinical study
(the BEACON study) for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer and is also
in Phase 2 studies for the treatment of ovarian and colorectal cancers. In
anti-infectives, Amikacin Inhale is in Phase 3 studies conducted by Bayer
