Pisgah Laboratories, Inc. Scores a Triple Play in the World Series Against Prescription Drug Abuse
Date:11/12/2012

PISGAH FOREST, N.C., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pisgah Laboratories, Inc. (www.pisgahlabs.com) has recently received three Notices of Allowance for United States Patents related to its abuse deterrent medications platform. Earlier this year, Pisgah obtained US Patent 8,211,905 emanating from work conducted at their facility in Pisgah Forest, NC. The latest Notices represent additional milestones to what Pisgah believes will be significant advances in the war on drug abuse. Two of the Notices relate to "Opioid Salts and Formulations Exhibiting Anti-Abuse and Anti-Dose-Dumping Properties," and the third is entitled, "Salts of Physiologically Active and Psychoactive Alkaloids and Amines Simultaneously Exhibiting Bioavailability and Abuse Resistance." Pisgah indicates these patent allowances are the foundation to what they expect to be a broad intellectual property portfolio encompassing narcotics, obesity treatment drugs, and high abuse-potential medications used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, AD(H)D.

Pisgah's approach to counter drug abuse is to re-vamp the chemistry of abused medications so as to remove the features which enable abuse—while still retaining the intended medical benefit when the drug is used properly. To do this, Pisgah has modified the active ingredient in the drug product to have properties which are difficult to extract from the dosage form (the pill) and to yield a drug substance that is ineffective when used illicitly in "alternate routes of administration." This chemical and physical selectivity imparted to the drug substance—the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), now enables drug product manufacturers to prepare specialty pharmaceuticals with highly refined features and benefits.    

Pisgah's president and CEO, Bill Bristol commented, "The broad applicability of these innovations offers a new hope for defeating the drug abuse cy
