Recro Pharma, Inc. (Nasdaq:REPH), a revenue generating specialty pharmaceutical company focused on products for hospital and ambulatory care settings that is currently developing non-opioid products for the treatment of serious acute pain, today announced positive results from its Phase III clinical trial evaluating intravenous (IV) meloxicam (N1539) for the treatment of acute postoperative pain in patients following bunionectomy surgery. In the trial, IV meloxicam achieved the primary endpoint of a statistically significant difference in Summed Pain Intensity Difference (SPID) over the first 48 hours (SPID48) compared to placebo…

“The data from this trial demonstrated that IV meloxicam provided rapid and sustained pain relief following bunionectomy surgery, a favorable safety and tolerability profile, and a statistically significant increase in time to opioid rescue medication,” said Neil Singla, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Lotus Clinical Research, and lead investigator of the study. “There are limited non-opioid pain relief options for postoperative patients suffering from moderate-to-severe pain, and these data support that, if approved, IV meloxicam has the potential to provide an important new non-opioid analgesic option for physicians and patients.”
