HORSHAM, Pa., June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Researchers from DRUGSCAN® and INC Research® announced today that they will host a live, complimentary webinar titled, "Untangling methods to tamper with opioid formulations: Perspectives from the benchtop to the real world" on Wednesday June 28, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EDT.
This webinar will feature interviews with recreational and dependent prescription opioid abusers offering a rare look into the manipulation techniques abusers use to prepare opioid tablets for routes of administration that provide a more powerful euphoria, such as intravenous or intranasal. The webinar will also discuss the laboratory experiments scientists conduct to evaluate the properties of abuse-deterrent formulations that are designed to resist these manipulation techniques.
"This candid session will focus on the abuser's extensive experiences with altering prescription opioids for unintended routes of administration" said Dr. Beatrice Setnik, Vice President of Scientific and Medical Affairs at INC Research "the experiences shared by these abusers can help inform laboratory and clinical evaluations of abuse-deterrent formulations"
