Collegium Pharmaceutical Announces Relocation to Massachusetts
Date:1/17/2013

CANTON, Mass., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development of innovative treatments for chronic pain, today announced the relocation of its corporate offices and laboratory facilities to Canton, Massachusetts from Cumberland, Rhode Island.

The Company's lead development program is Oxycodone DETERx® (COL-003), a tamper-resistant, extended-release oxycodone product utilizing its proprietary DETERx® technology. The Oxycodone DETERx® formulation was specifically designed to provide and preserve extended release of the active ingredient following the most common methods of product tampering employed by drug abusers (e.g., crushing, chewing, heating for IV injection, etc.). The product is currently in the final stage of clinical development and has been designated Fast Track Status by the FDA due to its potential to address the problem of prescription drug abuse, a major public health issue in the U.S.

Extended-release formulations of opioids (e.g., OxyContin®) are known to be attractive targets for non-medical use since they contain large doses of drug. Crushing these dosage forms can defeat the extended-release properties and result in immediate availability of the opioid, also known as "dose dumping." Crushed formulations are commonly self-administered by abusers orally, intranasally or by IV injection, resulting in a "high." Although marketed formulations carry labels warning against crushing and breaking, there are reports of legitimate pain patients crushing tablets to facilitate swallowing, a practice that significantly increases their risk of serious adverse events.

"We are pleased to have completed our relocation to Massachusetts. The new analytical and development labs will facilitate the completion
