The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of a buprenorphine/naloxone sublingual tablet formulation as an office-based therapy for opiate-dependence treatment. The developmental objective for this combination product is an expansion of therapeutic options for the treatment of opiate dependence.
This multicenter pivotal clinical trial was comprised of two phases. The first phase, which was four weeks in length, was double-blind placebo controlled and was primarily used to evaluate the efficacy of buprenorphine/naloxone. The second phase, lasting 48 weeks, was primarily conducted to determine the safety of buprenorphine/naloxone.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic opioid used for the treatment of opioid dependence. Opioid use, including buprenorphine, has been increasing in recent years, in the general population and in pregnan...
The effectiveness of buprenorphine treatment of opioid dependence is limited by suboptimal medication adherence, abuse, and diversion.
Fatal outcome of opioid overdose, once detected, is preventable through timely administration of the antidote naloxone. Take-home naloxone provision directly to opioid users for emergency use has been...
A derivative of the opioid alkaloid THEBAINE that is a more potent and longer lasting analgesic than MORPHINE. It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors. The lack of delta-agonist activity has been suggested to account for the observation that buprenorphine tolerance may not develop with chronic use.
Disorders related or resulting from abuse or mis-use of opioids.
An opioid antagonist with properties similar to those of NALOXONE; in addition it also possesses some agonist properties. It should be used cautiously; levallorphan reverses severe opioid-induced respiratory depression but may exacerbate respiratory depression such as that induced by alcohol or other non-opioid central depressants. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p683)
Medical treatment for opioid dependence using a substitute opiate such as METHADONE or BUPRENORPHINE.
A specific opiate antagonist that has no agonist activity. It is a competitive antagonist at mu, delta, and kappa opioid receptors.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
