PALO ALTO, Calif., July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Signature Therapeutics, Inc., a development-stage biopharmaceutical company, announced today that it has received no-cost access to contractor resources through the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences' Bridging Interventional Development Gaps (BrIDGs) program (part of the NIH) to support development of its extended-release, abuse-deterrent oxycodone, PF614 – a novel, inactive prodrug formulation that must be digested to achieve therapeutic benefit.  NIH's National Institute on Drug Abuse is providing funding directly to BrIDGs to support the project, which includes scale-up synthesis, drug product packaging, pharmacokinetic analysis and IND-enabling toxicology studies.
