Addicere plans to develop Staccato nicotine to address both the chemical and behavioral components of nicotine addiction by combining nicotine replacement with a user-friendly drug delivery device that will help smokers reduce or eliminate their smoking habit.  Addicere believes the Staccato technology is capable of mimicking the pharmacokinetics of smoking cigarettes through the delivery of optimally-sized nicotine particles to the deep lung.  Staccato nicotine may also provide some of the psychological aspects of smoking (e.g., hand-to-mouth movement, oral inhalation) and could allow smokers to self-administer and possibly titrate to the dose to treat cravings.  Importantly, the electronics embedded within the Staccato delivery system could allow for the programmed, over-time reduction in the overall daily dose of nicotine, and ultimately may lead to the better management of nicotine cravings and eventual sustained
