Pain Therapeutics, Inc.

Drug Names(s): PTI-801

Description: Oxytrex is a combination of the opioid agonist oxycodone and a low dose of the opioid antagonist naltrexone. At usual doses, naltrexone blocks the action of the opioids. At a very low dose, however, it is believed to enhance pain relief and attenuate the development of tolerance or addiction through a separate pathway.

Deal Structure: In the first quarter of 2009, Pain Therapeutics discontinued the development of Oxytrex and reverted rights to this drug to Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
