    About the study

    - A multinational, open-label, crossover trial comparing Instanyl(R) and
      Actiq(R) for breakthrough cancer pain in patients receiving chronic
      opioid treatment.

    - The trial investigated the efficacy of Instanyl compared to Actiq as
      well as ease of administration and patient preference.

    - Primary efficacy measurement was time to onset of meaningful pain
      relief.

    - Of 196 patients enrolled and 139 randomised, 86 patients completed the
      trial.

    Results showed that:

    - 25.3% of episodes showed meaningful pain relief (greater than or equal
      to 33% reduction in PI score) at 5 minutes after treatment with
      Instanyl versus 6.8% with Actiq.

    - 51% of the Instanyl treated patients had a meaningful pain relief
      (greater than or equal to 33% reduction in PI score) at 10 minutes
      versus 23
