Research Activities

Purdue focuses on balancing innovative science with clinically effective, compassionate care. Through strategic partnerships with a range of companies, Purdue continues to discover and develop therapies for the future advancement of healthcare. Purdue offers a unique portfolio of medical products in five categories:

Prescription Opioids
Purdue pioneered prescription medications containing opioid agonists such as oxycodone, morphine, buprenorphine and hydrocodone. In the early 1970s, Purdue developed a controlled drug-release system that is still used today in extended-release opioids. For more than two decades, Purdue has provided educational resources and practice tools to support healthcare professionals and their patients about the responsible use of opioids.

The Purdue portfolio of products contains a prescription medicine that may help treat those with middle-of- the-night insomnia.

For 60 years, Purdue has manufactured laxative products in the U.S. The company expanded its portfolio with the addition of stool softeners and now has more options for treating occasional constipation.

For more than four decades, our antiseptic products have been used at home and in hospitals worldwide as an important defense against topical infections. In hospitals, healthcare professionals use our products, which provide antiseptic action against a range of microorganisms.

Dietary Supplement
The portfolio of Purdue products also includes a magnesium dietary supplement.
