“We are delighted that Camurus has received this year’s Carnegie Sustainability Award. This recognizes our efforts and continuous commitment to developing long-acting treatments that can help to improve quality of lives of patients with serious and chronic diseases, reduce treatment burden and also improve the utilization of resources in the healthcare system“, says Fredrik Tiberg, PhD, President & CEO.
Camurus was one of 360 companies included in the Carnegie analysis and was chosen to receive the award with the following citation:
“Swedish biopharmaceutical company Camurus develops and commercialises innovative, long-acting medicines for the treatment of severe and chronic conditions. Its product Buvidal® is used to treat opioid addiction, an escalating global health problem. WHO data shows that 58 million people have used opioids globally in a single year, creating one of heaviest burdens on society of all drugs – for example, opioid overdoses are now the number one cause of death in the US for people under the age of 50. Buvidal is long-acting, it enables patients and healthcare professionals to focus on recovery instead of spending time and resources on supervised daily medication. Buvidal is injected, limiting the possibility of it being resold on the black market or accidentally being taken by children, both of which are risks with tablets.”
