Lotus Clinical Research Executive to Present on Opioid Sparing Outcomes at 19th Annual Pain Therapeutics Conference

Dr. Neil Singla, Chief Executive Officer of Lotus Clinical Research, will discuss ‘Opioid Sparing Outcomes: Practical Perspectives from 20 Years of Acute Pain Clinical Trials’ at the 19th Annual Pain Therapeutics Conference, taking place in London, UK on May 13-14, 2019.

“There is significant commercial and societal demand for opioid-sparing medications that could provide relief from opioid-related side effects; however, due to a lack of validated measurements and inadequate study powering, drug developers have yet to meet the rigorous evidence standards required to secure a complete opioid-sparing label claim,” said Dr. Neil Singla, Chief Executive Officer of Lotus Clinical Research. 

“The global opioids market size was valued at $22.96bn USD in 2016 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.8% between 2018 and 2025. Rising prevalence of diseases that cause chronic pain, such as cancer, lower back pain, postsurgical pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia, is driving growth.” – SMi Pain Therapeutics

Dr. Singla will discuss an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of current opioid-sparing outcomes, outline clinical trial design concerns in opioid-sparing studies, and discuss the potential utility of a new study endpoint: proportion of opioid-free patients at the 19th Annual Pain Therapeutics Conference, taking place in London, UK on May 13-14, 2019.
