Adolor Corporation (NasdaqGM: ADLR) today reported net sales of ENTEREG ® (alvimopan) of $7.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, a 20% increase compared to net sales of $6.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The increase in net sales was driven primarily by an increase in the number of hospitals ordering ENTEREG and increased penetration within existing hospital customers, as well as the impact of pricing changes. Net sales of ENTEREG were $23.5 million and $18.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. During the third quarter, the Company completed the transition of all ENTEREG commercial activities from Glaxo Group Limited (GSK) to Adolor.
