Egalet Corporation is a specialty pharmaceutical company developing and
planning to commercialize proprietary, abuse-deterrent oral products for the
treatment of pain and other indications. Egalet has created two distinct drug
delivery systems, each with novel abuse-deterrent features and the ability to
control the release profile of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).
Using its proprietary platform, Egalet has developed a pipeline of
clinical-stage, opioid-based product candidates in tablet form that are
specifically designed to deter abuse by physical and chemical manipulation,
while also providing tailored release of the active pharmaceutical ingredient.
Its lead product candidate, Egalet-001, is an abuse-deterrent,
extended-release, oral morphine formulation in development for the treatment
of moderate to severe chronic pain. There are currently no commercially
available abuse-deterrent formulations of morphine, and if approved, Egalet
believes that Egalet-001 would fill a significant unmet need in the
marketplace. Its second product candidate, Egalet-002, is an abuse-deterrent,
extended-release, oral oxycodone formulation in development for the treatment
of moderate to severe chronic pain. The Egalet technology can be applied
broadly across different classes of pharmaceutical products and can be used to
develop combination products that include multiple APIs with similar or
different release profiles. Visit www.egalet.com for more information.
