Significant Unmet Medical Need for Treatment of Patients with Chronic Pain with Dysphagia (CPD)
Date:4/22/2013

CANTON, Mass., April 22, 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 research study, conducted with an independent market research firm, that identified a significant unmet medical need for improved treatments for patients with chronic pain and dysphagia/odynophagia. In clinical practice, dysphagia is most often defined as difficulty in swallowing and odynophagia is defined as pain upon swallowing. Both conditions may contribute to the inability or difficulty in swallowing solid oral analgesic medications.

Key findings from the research study, which included a review of the medical literature and interviews with physicians who specialize in the treatment of patients with chronic pain, revealed a significant prevalence of dysphagia in this patient population.

An estimated 11 million people suffer from both chronic pain and dysphagia (Chronic Pain with Dysphagia or "CPD") across a variety of pain subtypes (e.g., chronic back pain, osteoarthritis, and cancer pain). The prevalence of CPD increases with age: 17% of pediatric (0-19 years of age), 24% of adult (20-64 years of age) and 59% of geriatric (>65 years of age) patients.

Treatment options for patients with CPD are limited. Many of these patients cannot swallow a pill and those with more severe dysphagia may require the use of a feeding tube. "Long-acting, extended-release (ER) oral opioids are the treatment of choice for many patients with chronic pain due to less frequent dosing and more consistent plasma concentrations of medication, thereby minimizing end-of-dose breakthrough pain, longer pain control, improved nighttime pain control, and less cl
