DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alkermes plc (NASDAQ: ALKS) today announced the initiation of a phase 1 clinical study of ALKS 7106, a proprietary, novel, oral, small-molecule drug candidate for the treatment of pain. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study will evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of ALKS 7106 in approximately 80 healthy, male adults. ALKS 7106 represents a new class of analgesic agents in development at Alkermes: potent opioid modulators designed for the treatment of pain with intrinsically low potential for abuse and overdose death – two liabilities associated with opioid analgesics. ALKS 7106’s potential attributes derive from its intrinsic mechanism of action in the brain rather than through the use of abuse-deterrent technologies or formulations.
