Date:2/16/2012

RALEIGH, N.C. and CHADDS FORD, Pa., Feb. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc. (Nasdaq: BDSI) announced the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a Notice of Allowance of BDSI's patent application (No. 13/184306) that, once formally granted, will extend the exclusivity of the BioErodible MucoAdhesive (BEMA) drug delivery technology for BEMA Buprenorphine and BEMA Buprenorphine/Naloxone from 2020 to 2027.
