Now this is good, Twitter becomes even a little more valuable with the fact that a biotech blogger and stock blogger announced it on Twitter, late Friday after getting a confirmation from the FDA that the drug has been approved. This is Sunday and I just came across the story so if you haven’t heard yet, the press release is due out tomorrow.
Oxecta is an opioid approved for moderate to severe pain and has a design to cut out common methods of abuse and is meant to be a short term prescription like after surgery recovery. BD
NEW YORK ( TheStreet ) -- U.S. regulators approved a new tamper-resistant painkiller from Pfizer( PFE_ ) and Acura Pharmaceuticals( ACUR_ ) Friday night, but you wouldn't have known it unless you were logged on to Twitter.
