description Description

Camurus specialises in the development of pharmaceuticals based on advanced nanoscale delivery solutions that optimize the therapeutic performance of difficult substances, including peptides and proteins. The company's FluidCrystal® delivery systems are used in developments programs with biotech and pharmaceutical companies worldwide. Camurus also develops own drug products targeting improved performance, safety, and patient compliance of well-documented drug compounds. New candidates for oral mucositis, prostate cancer, and acromegaly are currently in clinical trials.

Drug Pipeline


compound Episil® [Internal project]

Episil® represents a new concept for local treatment of pain associated with oral mucositis. The product is administered as a lipid-based liquid that spreads on the intra-oral mucosal surfaces and transforms to a strongly bioadhesive FluidCrystal® film that mechanically protects the sensitised and sore epithelium of the oral cavity. Episil® is conveniently administered from a ready to use multi-dose device.

compound CAM2029 [Co-developed with Novartis]

CAM2029 is a new ready-to-use, long-acting octreotide product for treatment of acromegaly and carcinoid tumours (and other gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine, GEP NE, tumours). The product consists of a lipid-based liquid administered subcutaneously as a low volume injection. Once injected the lipid constituents immediately start to self-assemble into the "active" FluidCrystal® controlled release matrix. Therapeutic plasma levels of octreotide are thereby rapidly reached and maintained over one month. CAM2029 has been designated orphan drug status by EMEA.

compound CAM2038 [Internal project]

CAM2038 represents a new treatment concept for opiate addiction based on the well-documented anti-addiction therapeutic buprenorphine. While the current buprenorphine products on the market rely on frequent administrations of sublingual buprenorphine tablets, CAM2038 is based on a once-weekly or once-monthly subcutaneous administration that can be given by health-care professional in a clinical setting. This allows for better treatment compliance and safeguards against misuse and drug diversion. In October 2011, Camurus completed a Phase I/II trial of CAM2038 in opioid addicted patients. The investigational drug was found to be well tolerated both systemically and locally at all doses tested in the trial and no safety concerns were identified in the safety population (n=41). The pharmacodynamics readouts, subjective and clinical opiate withdrawal symptoms (SOWS and COWS), were well controlled for up to 10 days after single-dose injection of CAM2038.

compound Prosenze® [Internal project]

CAM2032 is a new convenient ready-to-use, long-acting leuprolide formulation being developed for long-term treatment of prostate cancer, with development also initiated for endometriosis. The product consists of a lipid-based solution filled on standard pre-filled syringes and compatible with autoinjector devices. It is administered as a low volume subcutaneous injection that rapidly transforms in situ into the "active" FluidCrystal® controlled release matrix, providing consistent plasma levels over time. CAM2032 is being developed in two product forms, a one-month depot followed by a three-month product. Results from a Phase II clinical trial of Prosenze® in patients with advanced metastatic prostate cancer demonstrate that CAM2032 gives a clinically significant and effective suppression of testosterone during the 28 day treatment period. Moreover, the treatment was safe and well tolerated.
