Salix Pharmaceuticals Outlines Data Presentations At PAINWeek

RELISTOR Subcutaneous Injection was approved in the United States in 2008 for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation in patients with advanced illness who are receiving palliative care, when response to laxative therapy has not been sufficient. The use of RELISTOR beyond four months has not been studied. The drug is also approved for use in 58 countries worldwide, including the European Union, Canada and Australia. In the 27 member states of the E.U., as well as Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein, RELISTOR is approved for the treatment of opioid–induced constipation in advanced illness patients who are receiving palliative care when response to usual laxative therapy has not been sufficient. In Canada, the drug is approved for the treatment of opioid–induced constipation in patients with advanced illness, receiving palliative care. When response to laxatives has been insufficient, RELISTOR should be used as an adjunct therapy to induce a prompt bowel movement. Applications in additional countries are pending. RELISTOR is under exclusive license to Salix Pharmaceuticals worldwide except Japan, and to Ono Pharmaceutical in Japan only, from Progenics Pharmaceuticals. Salix is developing both subcutaneous injection and oral formulations of methylnaltrexone bromide for the potential treatment of opioid-induced constipation in adult patients with chronic, non-cancer pain.
