Indivior to Host Investor Event Today on RBP-6000 at 12:00 Noon EDT US (5:00 P.M. UK Time)

Slough, UK, and Richmond, VA, 29 June 2017 – Indivior PLC (LON: INDV) today will host an investor presentation on RBP-6000, its once monthly injectable buprenorphine which is being developed for the treatment of moderate-to-severe opioid use disorder (OUD) as part of a complete treatment plan to include counselling and psychosocial support. Indivior submitted a new drug application (NDA) for RBP-6000 to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on May 30th, 2017.

The presentation, to be led by Christian Heidbreder, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Indivior, will focus on data submitted to FDA that demonstrate RBP-6000’s statistically significant differences in the rate of abstinence and other clinical endpoints versus placebo. Dr. Heidbreder’s team will also provide insights into submitted safety data.

Shaun Thaxter, CEO of Indivior said:

“Indivior has been a pioneer in buprenorphine medication-assisted treatment (BMAT), educating and working with physicians, advocacy groups, medical societies, payors, policy makers and other key stakeholders to help address opioid addiction and we remain the leader today. Our leadership position stems from our clear focus on developing treatments that deliver on the unmet needs of patients, along with our relentless advocacy for evidenced-based medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as a key part of the addiction recovery equation. It is this focus on serving the needs of the patient that has led us to develop RBP-6000 as a potential new standard of care, and I am delighted that you will get the opportunity to hear more about this investigational product today.

“I am also very pleased with our commercial execution in the first half of 2017. Despite having lost some share in Managed Medicaid, our overall base film business remains resilient – with a current share in the U.S. market of about 57%. This continues to provide us the resources and strong foundation we will leverage as we look to launch RBP-6000 in the early part of 2018, if granted priority review by the FDA.”

About RBP-6000


RBP-6000 is an investigational buprenorphine sustained-release formulation using our ATRIGEL® delivery system, which consists of a polymeric solution of a biodegradable poly-(DL-lactide-co-glycolide) co-polymer dissolved in N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP), a water-miscible biocompatible solvent. After subcutaneous injection, NMP diffuses out of the polymer matrix and the polymer precipitates, trapping the drug inside and forming an amorphous solid depot in situ. The depot releases buprenorphine over a one-month period by diffusion as the polymer biodegrades.

Available safety findings suggest that 2.7% of subjects on RBP-6000 (both dosage regimens combined) experienced a serious treatment-emergent adverse event (TEAE) compared with 5.0% of subjects on placebo. There were no related serious TEAEs across groups. 6.9% of subjects on RBP-6000 (both dosage regimens combined) experienced a severe TEAE compared with 4.0% of subjects on placebo. 4.2 % of subjects on RBP-6000 (both dosage regimens combined) discontinued treatment due to TEAEs compared with 2.0% of subjects on placebo. The most common (reported in ≥ 5% of subjects) TEAEs reported in the active total group were headache, constipation, nausea, injection site pruritus, vomiting, insomnia and upper respiratory tract infection.
