Fuisz Pharma Releases Clinical Photos of Its Opioid Abuse Detection System
Date:12/6/2010

MIAMI, Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Fuisz Pharma today released photos of what the clinician will see in a standard nasal otoscopic exam in the case of a patient abusing an opioid, like Oxycontin® and others, through snorting. A food safe dye included in the tablet creates easily visible, long lasting but temporary nasal stain.  Crushing and snorting opioids is the most common method of opioid abuse. The photos are taken at 12 hours, 24 hours and 48 hours after snorting. These photos include attempts to defeat the system – which prove futile – by attempting to clean the nose through nasal lavage. The importance of these photos is to demonstrate for the first time an objective criterion for caregivers, emergency personnel and law enforcement personnel to detect opioid abuse. Presently the REMS that are mandated by the FDA do not have any objective criteria wherein the Caregiver and others have the ability to detect abuse. The nasal staining demonstrated by these clinical pictures is not the only detection feature of the Fuisz Closed Loop Diagnostic system.  Other methods include the staining the of the oral mucosa where a tablet is crushed and diverted for buccal or sublingual use (instead of the directed swallowing), as well as a method of urine detection that does not require chemistries. These methods are covered by pending patents and issued patent claims (US 7,214,385 "Pharmaceutical Formulation Containing Dye") that are owned by Fuisz Pharma.
