CANTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development of innovative treatments for chronic pain, today announced that the Company's President and CEO, Michael Heffernan, will present the Company's corporate overview on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at 8:30am EDT at the Jefferies 2014 Global Healthcare Conference. The conference will be held at the Grand Hyatt in New York City.
The Company's lead development program is Oxycodone DETERx®, an abuse-deterrent, extended-release oxycodone microsphere-in-capsule 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 Collegium anticipates filing an NDA in Q4 2014. The Oxycodone DETERx® program 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.
About DETERx® Technology
The DETERx® drug technology platform consists of a microsphere-in-capsule formulation. While developed primarily to provide abuse-deterrent properties to protect against common methods of tampering such as chewing, crushing, insufflation and extraction for IV injection, the multi-particulate design is expected to enable patients with difficulty swallowing to open the capsule and to administer the contents sprinkled onto food, directly into the mouth, or via a feeding tube, while maintaining the ER properties of the product. The DETERx® technology can be used with drugs that are commonly abused such as opioids and amphetamines, as well as drugs that have narrow therapeutic windows that would benefit from protection against misuse such as breaking, crushing, grinding, or dissolving the product. The formulation platform is covered by U.S. and international patents and patent applications. Oxycodone DETERx® is the first of a number of product candidates using the DETERx® platform.
About Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc.
Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing a portfolio of products that incorporate its patent-protected DETERx® formulation platform for the treatment of chronic pain. The DETERx® oral drug delivery technology provides ER delivery, unique abuse-deterrent properties, and flexible dose administration options.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
