Mississauga, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/04/2013 -- AllPennyStocks.com Media, Inc. (http://www.AllPennyStocks.com/) announces its latest article titled “Lightlake Therapeutics Clinical Trial Supports Nasal Spray Version of Naloxone for Opioid Overdose Treatment.”
Companies mentioned in this article include Lightlake Therapeutics Inc. (OTCBB:LLTP).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has determined that prescription drug abuse in the U.S. has reached epidemic proportion, citing an increase in opioid analgesic sales as a contributing factor. In 2010, drug poisoning, mostly in the form of overdoses, was attributed to more deaths than motor vehicle accidents in 31 states, according to CDC data. Deaths from prescribed opioid analgesics for the country totaled an amazing 16,651 in 2010, and that’s just specified deaths. It’s presumable that the drugs played a role in the 25-percent of drug-related deaths where an exact cause wasn’t provided. For comparison, in 1999, there were only 4,030 deaths from prescription opioid overdose.
The CDC and Drug Enforcement Agency are working together to combat the growing rate of opioid abuse that is rising in tandem with overdose deaths. Tackling increasing overdose rates from a different angle, drug developers, such as Lightlake Therapeutics Inc. (OTCBB:LLTP), are working on innovative ways to rapidly reverse the overdose of prescription and illicit opioids.
