WAYNE, Pa., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Egalet Corporation (Nasdaq: EGLT) ("Egalet") today announced that Bob Radie, president and chief executive officer, is scheduled to present at the 34th Annual Cowen Health Care Conference in Boston on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 9:20 a.m. eastern standard time. Mr. Radie will provide an overview of the company's abuse-deterrent product candidates. The presentations that will be audio webcast live and available for replay will be available at Egalet's website, http://egalet.investorroom.com/eventsandwebcasts.
Egalet Corporation is a specialty pharmaceutical company developing and planning to commercialize proprietary, abuse-deterrent oral products for the treatment of pain and other indications. The company has created two distinct drug delivery systems, each with novel abuse-deterrent features and the ability to control the release profile of the active pharmaceutical ingredient. Using its proprietary platform, Egalet has developed a pipeline of clinical-stage, opioid-based product candidates in tablet form that are specifically designed to deter abuse by physical and chemical manipulation, while also providing tailored release of the active pharmaceutical ingredient. Our lead product candidate, Egalet-001, is an abuse-deterrent, extended-release, oral morphine formulation in development for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. There are currently no commercially available abuse-deterrent formulations of morphine, and we believe that Egalet-001, if approved, would fill a significant unmet need in the marketplace. Our second product candidate, Egalet-002, is an abuse-deterrent, extended-release, oral oxycodone formulation in development for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. The Egalet technology can be applied broadly across different classes of pharmaceutical products and can be used to develop combination products that include multiple APIs with similar or different release profiles.
