Collegium Announces Results of Chronic Pain Patient Survey - Confirms Significant Unmet Medical Need for a Differentiated, Abuse-Deterrent, Extended-Release Opioid
Date:4/30/2013

CANTON, Mass., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development of innovative treatments for chronic pain, today announced the completion of a 1,021 patient survey, which consisted of patients with chronic pain currently on opioid medications. The survey was conducted by MedPanel, LLC, a specialized medical market insights firm. The objective of the survey was to understand patient attitudes and behaviors towards opioid medications and to assess patients' concerns related to currently available therapies for chronic pain. In addition, the survey assessed the percentage of patients with pain who have trouble swallowing pills and explored patient and physician awareness related to managing this important medical issue.     

Key findings from the survey highlight that opioid abuse and diversion are a significant concern for patients taking opioids for the treatment of chronic pain. Of all patients surveyed, 66% were concerned about social opioid abuse and 55% were concerned about becoming addicted. Furthermore, 36% of patients were concerned about someone taking their medication without their permission; 11% of patients had their medication stolen, most often from their home. When patients were asked, only 14% knew that there is an abuse-deterrent opioid in development. The majority of the patients surveyed (76%) indicated that they would be interested in switching to an analgesic medication similar to OxyContin®, but that is more abuse-deterrent.

The survey results confirmed that there is a significant unmet medical need for the treatment of patients with both chronic pain and dysphasia ("CPD"), a patient population consisting of 11 million people in the U.S. Of all patients surveyed, approximately 30% reported that they have trouble swallowing pills or do not like to swallow pills, yet only 19% of all patients had ever
