DURECT Announces Positive Results from DUR-928 Multi-Dose Phase 1 Study

DURECT Corporation announced that it has obtained positive results from a multi-dose Phase 1 clinical trial with an oral formulation of DUR-928, the lead molecule in DURECT's Epigenomic Regulator Program. DUR-928 is an endogenous, small-molecule, new chemical entity (NCE), which may have broad applicability in metabolic diseases such as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). It may also play an important role in protecting against acute kidney injury (AKI) and other types of acute organ injury.

DURECT licensed development and commercialization rights to REMOXY to Pain Therapeutics, and Pain Therapeutics subsequently licensed these rights to King Pharmaceuticals Inc. (King).

(Pfizer), and in October 2014, Pfizer informed Pain Therapeutics that it was returning its development and commercialization rights for REMOXY to Pain Therapeutics. Under the terms of DURECT's agreement with Pain Therapeutics, if REMOXY is commercialized, DURECT will receive royalties of between 6.0% to 11.5% of net sales depending on sales volumes.
