Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics were measured through serial blood samples and observations of cold pressor test response, as well as pupillometry to determine opioid-induced miosis of drug effect and exposure over time.
Importantly, pupillometry data from the study demonstrate that NKTR-181's centrally-mediated opioid effects are dose-linear and that the molecule enters the brain slowly.
Endpoints in this multiple dose Phase 1 study will also include assessment of pharmacodynamic effects including pupillometry, exploratory pain measures, and respiratory parameters.
Using pupillometry to determine the time at which children exerted mental effort, the speed of their responses for each type of sequence and the relative accuracy of those responses, the researchers found that children neither plan for the future nor live completely in the present.
