Clinical Trial Progress of New Class of Opioids – All About it
ENSC announced on 30th November 2021 that the Company’s second trial of its Trypsin Activated Abuse Protected (TAAP) Opioid, PF614, has completed a satisfactory safety evaluation and enrolled the last cohort of individuals at the highest dosage level. PF614 is a trypsin-activated, delayed-onset oxycodone prodrug (TAAP). The active component of Ensysce’s opioid products, such as PF614, is rendered inactive by the TAAP chemical modification. This provides abuse-deterrent, resistance to manipulation, and resistance to other types of recreational drug misuse, as well as a high level of pain alleviation for people in severe pain. The purpose of this study is to increase knowledge of how PF614 compares to already available commercial products by building on the safety and pharmacokinetic outcomes of the first Phase 1 study.
The findings of the experiments have been encouraging. ENSC is on track to bring lead ‘next generation’ opioids medicines to market. Moreover, the company is devoted to establishing novel platforms to combat prescription drug addiction and overdose since Ensysce’s beginnings, and they’ve made significant progress.
While the company has achieved great progress to date via a rigorous approach to the company, the team realizes they need of using innovative technology to solve the opioid issue. Lastly, this research is a critical step toward the aim of introducing a unique pipeline of medications to the industry so that prescribers and patients have safer alternatives.
