Trial summary

This is a prospective, randomised, openlabel, activecontrolled, multicenter
trial comparing treatment effects of CAM2038 (BPN depot injection) with BPN standard of care (for example, sublingual [SL] BPN or BPN/naloxone [BPN/NX]) in adult outpatients with opioid dependence.
Opioid dependent patients who are either currently receiving medication assisted treatment (MAT) with SL BPN or BPN/NX, or patients who are actively seeking BPN standard of care treatment but who have not yet begun a treatment regimen, may be eligible for the trial.
Patients will be randomised in a 1:1 ratio to either CAM2038 (involving either weekly or monthly depot injections based upon prescriber and patient choice) or BPN standard of care MAT. Stratification by new to treatment will be applied.
The trial will consist of a Screening Period of up to 4 weeks duration, a Treatment Period of 24 weeks duration, and a Followup Period of 2 weeks duration.
Outcomes relevant to study include the treatments’ perspective impact on patient’s satisfaction of treatment and other patient reported outcomes (PROs), as well as understanding the potential health economic impact and resource utilization with CAM2038 treatment.
