Building a Clinical Knowledge Base

BDSI supports research to help advance the understanding of treatment options for serious and debilitating chronic conditions.

Investigator-Sponsored Research Program

BDSI makes support available for clinical studies developed and sponsored by independent investigators, as long as the studies demonstrate clear scientific merit and involve treatments for serious and debilitating chronic conditions. Support may include funding, product, or both.

Areas of interest currently being explored include:
  • The clinical impact of buprenorphine’s mechanism of action, efficacy, and safety
  • The process and clinical impact of transitioning chronic-pain patients to alternative therapy options
  • Buprenorphine patient outcomes and their impact on healthcare
  • Patient outcomes and the value peripherally-acting mu-opioid receptor antagonists (PAMORAs) provide in healthcare
  • Clinical impact of the PAMORAs on special patient populations in treating OIC
