RALEIGH, N.C., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BDSI) announced that data from clinical studies of BUNAVAIL will be presented at the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) 45th Annual Medical-Scientific Conference, April 10-13, 2014 in Orlando, Florida.
Four abstracts will be presented highlighting data from the clinical development program, which includes the pivotal bioequivalence study of BUNAVAIL compared to Suboxone tablets and a safety study conducted in 249 subjects undergoing maintenance treatment for opioid dependence with Suboxone film or tablets who were converted to BUNAVAIL for 12 weeks.
The New Drug Application for BUNAVAIL is currently under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration with a PDUFA date of June 7, 2014.
BUNAVAIL utilizes BDSI's proprietary BioErodible MucoAdhesive (BEMA) technology to deliver buprenorphine for the maintenance treatment of opioid dependence, along with the opioid antagonist naloxone, which is intended to serve as an abuse deterrent. BUNAVAIL was designed to efficiently and conveniently deliver buprenorphine while potentially overcoming some of the challenges with other dosage forms.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
