About DURECT Corporation

DURECT is a biopharmaceutical company actively developing new therapeutics based on its Epigenetic Regulator Program and proprietary drug delivery platforms.  DUR?928, a new chemical entity in Phase 1 development, is the lead candidate in DURECT's Epigenetic Regulator Program.  An endogenous, orally bioavailable small molecule, DUR-928 has been shown in preclinical studies to play an important regulatory role in lipid homeostasis, inflammation, and cell survival.  Human applications may include acute organ injury, chronic metabolic disorders such as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and other disorders of the liver both broad and orphan, and inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis.  DURECT's advanced oral, injectable, and transdermal delivery technologies are designed to enable new indications and enhanced attributes for small-molecule and biologic drugs.  One late-stage product candidate in this category is POSIMIR® (SABER®-Bupivacaine), an investigational analgesic product intended to address key unmet needs in postoperative pain management.  Another late stage product candidate is REMOXY® ER (oxycodone), an investigational extended release pain relief drug based on DURECT's ORADUR® technology.  For more information, please visit www.durect.com.
