(NASDAQ:NTRB)(NASDAQ:NTRBW), a company engaged in the development of pharmaceutical products, contract research and development services, and the manufacture of transdermal products, has commenced the development of its lead product candidate, AVERSA™ Fentanyl, an abuse deterrent fentanyl transdermal system.
