About Bridge Therapeutics
Bridge Therapeutics is an innovative development-stage specialty pharmaceutical company pursuing U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) approvals of a patented (U.S. Patent #8410092) and patent-pending drug combination, BT-205, for the treatment of chronic pain in opioid-experienced patients. The investigational drug BT-205 is a unique combination of two synergistic chronic pain drugs-the partial-agonist opioid buprenorphine and the NSAID meloxicam-delivered in a state-of-the-art sublingual formulation.
