Addiction Therapeutics Reviewed by NeuroInvestment

CARDIFF, CA--(Marketwire - November 14, 2008) - NI Research today announced the release of the November issue of NeuroInvestment, featuring a review of pharmacologic therapeutics for addiction. The interface of the biological and sociocultural factors involved in substance abuse is reviewed for addictions to alcohol, opioids, stimulants (methamphetamines and cocaine), and nicotine.

Programs under development by over 25 companies are included in this review. They range from the depot therapeutics already marketed or under development by companies like Alkermes, Titan Pharmaceuticals, and Elbion, to novel pharmaceutical approaches from Synosia Therapeutics and Catalyst Pharmaceuticals.

The October issue also considers the evaporating prospects for Vanda Pharmaceuticals; the failure of Avigen's AV650; Neurogen's success with aplindore; and the ramifications of the Phase II respiratory depression success demonstrated by Cortex Pharmaceuticals (AMEX: COR). It also includes the first in an occasional series of reviews of Big Pharma companies as corporate partners, with an evaluation of Pfizer.
