Lightlake Therapeutics, Inc. has signed an agreement with a commercial contract manufacturer for the production of its naloxone-based opioid overdose reversal treatment.

"This is a significant milestone for Lightlake in forwarding our opioid overdose reversal treatment," said Dr. Roger Crystal, chief executive officer of Lightlake. "We have been diligent in selecting our partner for the contract manufacturing process to best position us to produce a high quality treatment that can meet the requirements for FDA approval.
