The process

As of now, the company has selected 178 patients for the key study. The enrollments have been randomized in twenty-one different centers. The enrollment process was easy as the screening failure was less in the process. Also, patients showed high interest towards the study. It hardly took four months to complete the enrollment process. Braeburn is expanding its drug portfolio for opioid dependence. The new association will result in additional $50 million of future royalties for the company.

The developments

Kate Glassman Beebe of Titan Pharmaceuticals said that management is encouraged with the progress of Phase 3 trial of Probuphine. The company will assist Braeburn Pharmaceuticals at every step to finish the trial effectively. The plan is expected to yield a controlled review of Probuphine. The study can be termed as a double-blind form and double-dummy design form of research.


The assessment will be carried out in two categories. The enrollment process covered those people who are stated as clinically stable. These patients are taking maintenance treatment of sublingual formulation which contains buprenorphine. Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
