Innovation Is the Key to Changing the Paradigm for the Treatment of Pain and Addiction to Create an America Free of Opioid Addiction
The Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) and our member companies are committed to unleashing the power of scientific innovation to develop solutions that will allow for an America free of prescription opioid addiction. BIO believes this plan should rest on three legs.
- Advance our understanding of the biology of pain and addiction to enable the development of innovative treatments for pain and addiction and ensure appropriate and optimal use of existing therapies
- Ensure patients suffering from pain or addiction are able to receive the right treatment at the right time with the right support, without stigma
- Stimulate research & development (r&d) of innovative treatments that effectively treat pain and opioid addiction and prevent abuse
