  • A 12-week, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Once-Weekly Intra-Muscular Injections of TV-1380 (150 mg/week or 300 mg/week) as Treatment for Facilitation of Abstinence in Cocaine-Dependent Subjects
  • Sponsor: National Institute on Drug Abuse

The secondary objective of the study is to assess the efficacy of TV-1380 in reducing measures of cocaine use compared to placebo treatment.
