Lightlake Therapeutics Inc. Files Investigational New Drug Application For Naloxone Nasal Spray For Reversing Opioid Overdose And Announces A Further Collaboration With The National Institute On Drug Abuse
Date:7/23/2014

LONDON, July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightlake Therapeutics Inc. ("Lightlake") (OTCQB: LLTP), a biopharmaceutical company developing addiction treatments based on its expertise in opioid antagonists, announced today that it has filed an investigational new drug application ("IND") with respect to its naloxone-based opioid overdose reversal nasal spray. Lightlake also announced today that it has received an additional commitment from the National Institute on Drug Abuse ("NIDA"), part of the National Institutes of Health ("NIH"), to fund a second study with respect to Lightlake's nasal spray. Lightlake, in collaboration with NIDA, previously commenced a clinical trial with respect to its nasal spray in September 2013.

Naloxone is an injectable medicine that can rapidly reverse the overdose of prescription and illicit opioids. Lightlake has been developing a naloxone nasal spray that could widely expand its availability and use in preventing opioid overdose deaths, a public health problem of epidemic proportion in the United States. In collaboration with NIDA, Lightlake will now evaluate its technology on a larger population, which will be a key step towards approval in the United States and other worldwide regions.

"We are extremely pleased that NIDA has continued its support of our opioid overdose reversal treatment," said Dr. Roger Crystal, CEO of Lightlake. "This support demonstrates NIDA's commitment of having an FDA approved intranasal naloxone nasal spray available to the public."

"NIDA's continued commitment to advancing our overdose reversal treatment reflects their confidence in the potential of our treatment," said Kevin Pollack, CFO of Lightlake. "We believe that our treatment can make a huge difference in addressing the overdose epidemic and save a significant number of lives, and NIDA's support plays a critical role in achieving our goals."
