Bridge Therapeutics is actively researching chronic pain alternatives to help reduce the impact of the opioid epidemic. The pharma company is currently pursuing FDA and European Medicines Agency (EMA) approval of a patented drug combination for the treatment of chronic pain in opioid-experienced patients.
The Bridge Therapeutics investigational drug BT-205 is a unique combination of two chronic pain drugs — the partial-agonist opioid buprenorphine and the NSAID meloxicam — delivered in a state-of-the-art sublingual formulation. This dose-saving combination and delivery method should provide superior safety, convenience and pain relief to chronic pain sufferers than full agonist opioids.
Bridge Therapeutics is working to bring the BT-205 compound and other investigational new drug candidates to millions of patients who suffer from chronic pain by providing a safer alternative to current opioid pain medications.
