About Xtampza™ ER
Collegium’s lead product candidate, Xtampza ER, is an abuse-deterrent, extended-release, oral formulation of oxycodone, in development for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate. Collegium developed Xtampza using its proprietary DETERx technology platform to address common methods of abuse, including chewing, crushing and/or dissolving, and then taking it orally or snorting or injecting.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted tentative approval to the Company’s New Drug Application (NDA) for Xtampza ER for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate. With a tentative approval, the FDA has determined that Xtampza ER meets required quality, safety and efficacy standards for approval but it is subject to an automatic stay of up to 30 months as a result of patent litigation filed by Purdue Pharma, L.P.
