Intellipharmaceutics submits NDA for Rexista
Intellipharmaceutics announced that it has filed a New Drug Application with the U.S. FDA seeking authorization to market its Rexista abuse-deterrent oxycodone hydrochloride extended release tablets in the 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg, 40 mg, 60 mg and 80 mg strengths. Rexista is indicated for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate. The submission is supported by pivotal pharmacokinetic studies that demonstrated that Rexista is bioequivalent to OxyContin. The submission also includes a comprehensive array of abuse-deterrent studies conducted to support abuse-deterrent label claims related to abuse of drug by oral, intra-nasal and intravenous pathways, having reference to the FDA's "Abuse-Deterrent Opioids - Evaluation and Labelling" guidance published in April 2015.
