Nektar Presents New Preclinical Data on NKTR-181 at Anesthesiology 2010
Date:10/17/2010

primates that are used to predict abuse liability of compounds, NKTR-181 showed a marked reduction in self-administration of drug as compared to both oxycodone and morphine.  Additionally, in a series of in situ brain perfusion studies, NKTR-181 exhibited a significantly reduced rate of entry into the CNS as compared to oxycodone.  

These data were presented at Anesthesiology 2010: American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting during the poster session entitled "Chronic and Cancer Pain":
