Oral Human Abuse Potential of Oxycodone DETERx ® (Xtampza ® ER)

, : Oral Human Abuse Potential of Oxycodone DETERx ® (Xtampza ® ER). Journal of Clinical Pharmacology (): -

NlmCategory="UNASSIGNED">Oxycodone DETERx® (Collegium Pharmaceutical Inc, Canton, Massachusetts) is an extended-release, microsphere-in-capsule, abuse-deterrent formulation designed to retain its extended-release properties after tampering (eg, chewing/crushing). This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, triple-dummy study evaluated the oral abuse potential of intact and chewed oxycodone DETERx capsules compared with crushed immediate-release oxycodone. Subjects with a history of recreational opioid use who were nondependent/nontolerant to opioids were enrolled. Treatments included intact oxycodone DETERx (high-fat, high-calorie meal and fasted), chewed oxycodone DETERx (high-fat, high-calorie meal and fasted), crushed immediate-release oxycodone (fasted), and placebo (high-fat, high-calorie meal). Plasma samples were collected to determine pharmacokinetic parameters. The primary endpoint was drug liking at the moment; other endpoints included drug effects questionnaire scores, Addiction Research Center Inventory/Morphine Benzedrine Group score, pupillometry measurements, and safety. Thirty-eight subjects completed the study. Chewed and intact oxycodone DETERx were bioequivalent, unlike crushed immediate-release oxycodone, which yielded higher peak oxycodone plasma concentrations compared with all methods of oxycodone DETERx administration. The mean maximum (peak) effect (Emax ) for drug liking was significantly lower for chewed and intact oxycodone DETERx than for crushed immediate-release oxycodone (P < .01). The time to Emax was significantly longer for chewed and intact oxycodone DETERx than for crushed immediate-release oxycodone (P < .0001). Scores for feeling high and Addiction Research Center Inventory/Morphine Benzedrine Group scores demonstrated lower abuse potential for chewed and intact oxycodone DETERx compared with crushed immediate-release oxycodone. Study treatments were well tolerated; no subjects experienced serious adverse events. These results demonstrate the lower oral abuse potential of chewed and intact oxycodone DETERx than crushed immediate-release oxycodone.
