BioDelivery Sciences Announces Four BUNAVAIL Abstracts to be Presented at the 2014 American Society of Addiction Medicine Annual Conference

First presentation of detailed BUNAVAIL clinical data scheduled for April 11 and 13, 2014

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.
