CLAAD Recognizes SMART/Script as Top 5 Technology To Reduce Rx Abuse
Date:11/27/2012

WASHINGTON, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Center for Lawful Access and Abuse Deterrence (CLAAD) today honored Atlantic Pharmaceuticals' SMART/Script as one of its "Top 5 Technologies To Reduce Prescription Drug Abuse."

Still in investigational stages, the SMART/Script technology is intended to deliver immediate- and extended-release opioid medications in a tamper-resistant form. If a medication formulated with SMART/Script were crushed or chewed, the SMART/Script technology would potentially prevent or slow the release of the active ingredient.

"We are honored to have our SMART/Script formulation system recognized by CLAAD and Millennium Laboratories," said Anthony Soscia, President of Atlantic Pharmaceuticals. "We believe that utilization of the SMART/Script platform will have a meaningful impact on prescription drug abuse."

The Top 5 Technologies competition aims to increase awareness of the U.S. prescription drug abuse epidemic, and to support private-sector efforts to address the problem.

Michael Barnes, spokesman for CLAAD, stated, "We support Atlantic Pharmaceuticals and other companies working to make medications less susceptible to abuse."

San Diego-based Millennium Laboratories co-sponsored the Top 5 Technologies contest.  Millennium provides medication monitoring, drug detection and pharmacogenetic testing services.

"We are proud to recognize Atlantic Pharmaceuticals for joining Millennium and CLAAD in our efforts to advance patient care and reduce prescription drug abuse," said Howard Appel, President of Millennium Laboratories.
