Postoperative Pain Understanding

Postoperative Pain: Overview

Postoperative Pain (CINV) are the side effects of cancer chemotherapy that can cause significant negative impacts on patients’ quality of life and on their ability to tolerate and comply with therapy. An estimated 80% of patients with cancer experience chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. It includes emesis and nausea, which can involve a loss of appetite and result in decreased oral intake of fluids and calories. CINV can be classified into 5 types: acute, delayed, anticipatory, breakthrough, and refractory. The pathophysiology of CINV includes both peripheral and central nervous system (CNS) pathways with different mechanisms involved in acute CINV and delayed CINV. Risk factors for developing CINV can be classified as patient-related or treatment-related. Prevention is the primary goal in the management of CINV. The primary alternative for prevention and treatment include 5-HT3 receptor antagonists, NK1 receptor antagonists, and corticosteroids. Other medications used, but to a lesser extent, include dopamine antagonists, benzodiazepines, cannabinoids, and olanzapine.

Postoperative Pain Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Postoperative Pain report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase III, II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.


Postoperative Pain Emerging Drugs


VVZ-149: Vivozon

VVZ-149 is a new mechanism-based non-narcotic and non-NSAID analgesic demonstrating the robust (comparable to morphine) pain-suppressing efficacy in a panel of in vivo models (post-operative, formalin-induced or neuropathic pain model). The compound has also shown the anti-itching effect in the serotonin-induced itching model. These in vivo efficacies are attributed to the synergistic or additive dual antagonistic activity of VVZ-149 against GlyT2 and 5HT2A which are key receptors for the transmission of the pain signal in spinal dorsal horn area and/or peripheral sensory neurons.


Qutenza: Grunenthal

Qutenza (capsaicin) 8% topical system is indicated in adults for the treatment of neuropathic pain associated with postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) and for neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) of the feet. It is currently in Phase III stage of development for the treatment of Post-surgical neuropathic pain.


CYT-1010: Cytogel Pharma

CYT-1010® is the first member of a new class of drugs, the endomorphins, to reach clinical development.  It produces pain relief through a novel mechanism of action on the endomorphin (EM) receptor. CYT-1010, is entering Phase II clinical development, following a successful Phase I study in humans. This breakthrough pain medicine has shown reduced potential for addiction and significantly less risk of respiratory depression, relative to treatment with traditional pain medicines.


ACP-044: ACADIA Pharmaceuticals

ACP-044 is a novel, first-in-class, orally administered, non-opioid analgesic. The mechanism of action is thought to interrupt multiple pain pathways and sensitization of neurons to pain, by accelerating the decomposition of peroxynitrite, a by-product of tissue damage. A Phase II study was initiated evaluating ACP-044 for the treatment of postoperative pain following bunionectomy surgery in March 2021.


CAM2048: Camurus

CAM2048 is a buprenorphine depot formulation for the treatment of postoperative pain providing rapid onset of action and therapeutic buprenorphine plasma levels over a couple of days. CAM2048 is being developed in collaboration with Braeburn Pharmaceuticals and has been successfully evaluated in a completed Phase I trial. The drug is currently being evaluated in Phase I/II stage of development.


ST 2427: SiteOne Therapeutics

ST-2427 is an experimental intravenous, non-opioid analgesic for the management of moderate-to-serve severe pain. ST-2427 blocks sodium ion channel 1.7 (NaV1.7).  NaV1.7 is a type of sodium channel that is highly expressed in peripheral nerve fibers that play a critical role in the generation and conduction of pain signals. As ST-2427 does not enter the brain, it is not expected to cause the central nervous system adverse effects (e.g. sedation, nausea, dependence and addition) that plague existing pain therapeutics such as the opioids. The development of ST-2427 was supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under Award Number UG3DA049599.
