AUSTIN, Texas, July 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pain Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:PTIE) today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. Net loss in Q2 2015 was $3.4 million, or $0.07 per share, compared to a net loss in Q2 2014 of $3.2 million, or $0.07 per share. Cash and investments were $37.3 million at June 30, 2015. The Company continues to expect net cash usage in 2015 may be approximately $12 million.
"Results this quarter reflect our intense focus on REMOXY", said Remi Barbier, President & CEO. "We believe REMOXY and FENROCK, our abuse deterrent fentanyl pain patch, may well represent the most exciting pipeline of abuse-deterrent products in the industry. It is a rare opportunity these days to have an unencumbered, proprietary and differentiated portfolio of drugs, with a lengthy period of exclusivity, that fits precisely into a therapeutic focus on pain."

Financial Highlights for Q2 2015
Other Highlights for Q2 2015
We are also developing FENROCK™, a proprietary abuse deterrent transdermal pain patch (fentanyl). We recently conducted proof-of-concept studies with FENROCK. Results from these studies may be announced in the second half of 2015, depending on the timing of certain intellectual property filings related to this drug candidate. We own all world-wide commercial rights to FENROCK.
In the second half of 2015, we expect to announce a major new drug development initiative for CNS diseases. Our undisclosed new drug candidate was developed in-house in cooperation with academic researchers, and targets a large, non-pain, underserved chronic market. We own all world-wide commercial rights to this drug candidate. In connection with this program, we also expect to also announce a new, non-dilutive source of funding that is intended to fund IND-enabling activities for our undisclosed new drug candidate.
We own world-wide commercial rights to our lead drug candidate, REMOXY Extended-Release Capsules CII, a unique, twice-a-day formulation of oral oxycodone. REMOXY's intended indication is for the management of moderate-to-severe pain when a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic is needed for an extended period of time and for which alternative treatments are inadequate. REMOXY's high viscosity formulation is specifically intended to discourage certain common methods of drug tampering and misuse, such as injection and snorting. The REMOXY NDA is supported by multiple clinical trials, including a successful Phase III efficacy program that was conducted under a Special Protocol Assessment.
