    Oxy abuse - more attempts at prevention

    this from NSTK's release below makes interesting reading but is not a threat yet to PTIE's efforts.

    " Advanced the <<preclinical program>> and regulatory strategy of CC-109, a novel, proprietary class of orally-administered opioid analgesics designed to combine the desirable slow release kinetics of 'physical' formulations like OxyContin(R), a branded controlled-release narcotic painkiller with annual sales exceeding $1.5 billion, with the security of a chemically-modified opioid, that cannot be abused by simply crushing a tablet or dissolving a sticky, high-viscosity formulation, but releases opioids by the actions of normal enzymes found in the body."
