AcelRx Business Development

AcelRx is currently seeking commercial and development partners on a global basis for our pipeline of product candidates. Our ideal partners have both broad geographic coverage and a demonstrated track record of success in our target markets.

Our lead asset, Zalviso, currently under NDA and MAA regulatory review by US FDA and EMA, respectively, is focused on the treatment of moderate to severe acute pain in the hospital setting. Zalviso is partnered with GrĂ¼nenthal for Europe and Australia and has been granted a CE mark by BSI for the device. Recently, Zalviso received a positive CHMP opinion recommending marketing authorization in the EU and the EEA. We are currently seeking additional commercialization partners for Zalviso in Asia, Latin America and ROW.

ARX-04 is a non-invasive, healthcare provider administered, fast-onset single dose sublingual sufentanil tablet for treatment of patients with moderate-to-severe acute pain in a number of medically supervised settings such as emergency room, ambulatory surgery, short term in-patient analgesia, paramedics bag, disaster relief / military applications. Recently, AcelRx announced that ARX-04 met all endpoints in a Pivotal Phase 3 trial (SAP301) designed to study the short-term treatment of patients with moderate-to-severe acute pain following ambulatory abdominal surgery. We are actively seeking ex-US commercialization partners.

Our pipeline products in cancer breakthrough pain (ARX-02) and procedural sedation (ARX-03) have all successfully completed Phase 2 studies. We are interested in discussing collaborations to complete development and registration of these product candidates on a regional or worldwide basis to maximize the therapeutic and commercial potential of our pipeline.

We welcome the opportunity to talk with potential commercialization partners worldwide about licensing relationships, development collaborations, and strategic alliances that complement and extend our own development and commercial capabilities.
