"We have long needed better tools to improve pain management in hospitalized patients," said Keith Candiotti, M.D., Professor of Anesthesiology at the University of Miami. "The safety and effectiveness of IV acetaminophen has been well established in numerous clinical trials and has become the foundation of IV pain management in Europe since its introduction in 2002. I believe that OFIRMEV will meet a longstanding unmet need in the U.S. and expect it to play a prominent role in the treatment of pain not only in my practice, but across the U.S."
