CUPERTINO, Calif., April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DURECT Corporation (Nasdaq: DRRX) announced today that Endo Pharmaceuticals has stated that it intends to return the rights to CHRONOGESIC(R) licensed from DURECT Corporation for the U.S. and Canada. CHRONOGESIC is a product candidate consisting of a sufentanil containing implantable device intended for the treatment of moderate-to-severe chronic pain. As a result, the Development, Commercialization and Supply License Agreement between Endo and DURECT entered into in November 2002 will terminate. This return of CHRONOGESIC rights has no effect on DURECT and Endo's collaboration with respect to the sufentanil transdermal patch (TRANSDUR(TM)-Sufentanil) licensed by Endo from DURECT for the U.S. and Canada.
