Dual-Acting Peripherally Restricted Delta/Kappa Opioid (CAV1001) Produces Antinociception in Animal Models of Sub-Acute and Chronic Pain.


The development of highly efficacious alternatives to mu-opioid analgesics represents an urgent unmet medical and public health need. In the presence of inflammation both delta- and kappa-opioid agonists, acting on peripheral sensory neurons, mediate analgesia. The dual-acting, peripherally restricted kappa/delta-opioid agonist, CAV1001, was tested in four rodent pain models.
