Acura Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Provides Update on its Abuse Deterrent Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen Combination Drug

Acura Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advised the company that the data from its intranasal abuse liability study AP-ADF-301 (Study 301) for its AVERSION hydrocodone bitartrate with acetaminophen (hydrocodone/APAP) product candidate are insufficient to support an intranasal abuse deterrence claim. The FDA's advice was provided in response to the company's meeting with the FDA on December 5, 2013 to discuss the results of Study 301. The FDA indicated that a product will have to have an impact on ‘Drug Liking’ to support a claim of abuse-deterrence through a relevant route of abuse. Study 301 failed to achieve a statistically significant reduction in ‘Drug Liking’ (also known as Emax). The FDA's advice also questioned whether the intranasal route is a relevant route of abuse for hydrocodone/APAP products and recommended Acura identify variables that could have impacted the findings from Study 301 before considering or conducting an additional intranasal abuse liability study on its AVERSION hydrocodone/APAP product. Acura previously submitted a report to the FDA on the prevalence of abusing hydrocodone products by intranasal administration and intends to meet with the FDA to discuss the FDA's expectations in this area. Acura's plans for AVERSION hydrocodone/APAP, including a revised projected timeline for submission of the New Drug Application, will be determined following its meeting with the FDA.
