NEW HAVEN, Conn., Aug. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Trevi Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRVI), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing an investigational therapy Haduvio™ (oral nalbuphine ER) for the treatment of prurigo nodularis and chronic cough in adults with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), today announced that it will host a virtual R&D Day on Monday, September 19, 2022, from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM Eastern Time.

Trevi's leadership team to host R&D Day alongside key opinion leaders in cough and itch

The event will feature presentations from key opinion leaders on the current treatment landscape and unmet medical need in patients with chronic cough and prurigo nodularis. Speakers include Dr. Peter Dicpinigaitis, MD, Professor of Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Division of Critical Care Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center, Director, Montefiore Cough Center and Editor-in-Chief, LUNG, and Dr. Brian Kim, MD, MTR, Sol and Clara Kest Professor, Vice Chair of Research, and Director of the Mark Lebwohl Center for Neuroinflammation and Sensation. They will be joined by Trevi's leadership team who will provide an update on the Company's development plans for Haduvio, followed by a live Q&A session. To register for the event please click here.

Interim data from the Phase 2 Cough and Nalbuphine (CANAL) trial and topline data from Trevi's Phase 2b/3 Pruritus Relief through Itch-Scratch Modulation (PRISM) trial both demonstrated statistically significant results with Haduvio and no new safety signals were identified. Haduvio has the potential to be a first-in-class oral therapy for both chronic cough in IPF as well as prurigo nodularis and the dual central and peripheral mechanism of action provides a differentiated approach to these refractory conditions.

A live webcast, including audio, video, and presentation slides, will be accessible on at the time of the meeting. Interested parties unable to watch the live webcast will be able to view and listen to an archived copy of the webcast, including the slides, which will be available on

About Trevi Therapeutics, Inc.
Trevi Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of the investigational therapy Haduvio for the treatment of prurigo nodularis and chronic cough in adults with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. These conditions share a common pathophysiology that is mediated through opioid receptors in the central and peripheral nervous systems.

Founded in 2011, Trevi Therapeutics is headquartered in New Haven, CT.

About Haduvio
Haduvio, an investigational therapy, is an oral extended-release (ER) formulation of nalbuphine. Nalbuphine is a mixed ĸ-opioid receptor agonist and µ-opioid receptor antagonist that has been approved and marketed as an injectable for pain indications for more than 20 years in the United States and Europe. The ĸ- and µ-opioid receptors are known to be critical mediators of itch, cough and certain movement disorders. Nalbuphine's mechanism of action may also mitigate the risk of abuse associated with µ-opioid agonists because it antagonizes, or blocks, µ-opioid receptors. Parenteral nalbuphine is not currently scheduled as a controlled substance by the DEA in the United States or by regulatory authorities in most of Europe. Trevi intends to propose Haduvio as the trade name for nalbuphine ER. Nalbuphine ER has been granted Fast Track designation by the FDA for the treatment of itch in patients with prurigo nodularis. Its safety and efficacy have not been evaluated by any regulatory authority.
