Date:1/18/2011

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cadence Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: CADX) today announced the launch of OFIRMEV™ (acetaminophen) injection, the first and only intravenous (IV) formulation of acetaminophen to be approved in the United States.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved OFIRMEV in November 2010 for the management of mild to moderate pain, the management of moderate to severe pain with adjunctive opioid analgesics, and the reduction of fever.  OFIRMEV is now available to hospitals across the U.S.  

"With the launch of OFIRMEV, physicians will have access to the first new class of IV pain medication in nearly two decades," said Ted Schroeder, president and CEO of Cadence.  "Our focus now turns to working closely with hospitals and physicians to expand access and utilization and establish OFIRMEV as a foundational therapy in the management of pain in hospitalized patients.  At this initial stage of commercialization, we are pleased with the early signals of physician demand and formulary access.  We anticipate that by the end of this year OFIRMEV will be on formulary at approximately 800 - 1,000 hospitals, which will represent approximately half of the IV analgesic opportunity."

The national launch of OFIRMEV is being supported by 147 hospital sales specialists and 13 field medical science liaisons.  These field personnel have extensive hospital experience and have completed rigorous training in preparation for the launch.  Through agreements with the three major pharmaceutical wholesalers, distribution centers across the U.S. are fully stocked and accepting orders from hospitals.  

Until now, the only injectable drugs available to treat pain and fever were opioids and NSAIDs.  When used as part of a multi-modal approach to pain management in placebo-controlled clinical stu
