Quotes

"One person dies every 19 minutes from a drug overdose in the United States and that trend is being driven by prescription (Rx) painkillers." (drugfree.org)
SCOPE of Pain Program Director Dr. Daniel P Alford said, "There are roughly 100 million people in the U S with chronic pain. While opioids may not be the best solution for all, they can improve functionality and quality of life for some. The problem is that the appropriate use of opioids is not well covered in medical training. We provide the missing link: education."
"The non-dilutive capital from this agreement provides us with additional funds to invest in our recently expanded development pipeline" added Hawley
"This agreement allows prescribers and patients to have treatment options to help manage severe chronic pain. Zogenix remains committed to responsibly providing Zohydro®"
