Abuse Deterrent Formulations
It is estimated that every day in the USA, 46 people die of prescription painkillers overdose. These deaths have more than quadrupled in the past decade and a half. Today, more people die from prescription opioid overdose than from heroin, cocaine and all other illegal drugs combined, an alarming trend that led the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to declare it an epidemic in November 2011.
At SPARC, we are developing a platform technology to make formulations, which can deter oral multi-pill abuse.
