Anthony DiTonno commented, "I have been CEO of NeurogesX for more than eight years and we have accomplished the objectives I established for myself when I joined the Company in March 2003. It has been my privilege to work with my colleagues at NeurogesX to take Qutenza through all phases of clinical development and regulatory approvals throughout the world resulting in the successful launch of Qutenza in the United States by our sales team and with our partner Astellas in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Our focus on finding a replacement will be to find someone with the appropriate commercial and business experience to take the Company to the next level. As we enter our second full year of commercialization, the timing is ideal for this transition to lead this great company into the future. Decisions like this are difficult and I cannot overstate my enthusiasm for Qutenza and NeurogesX going forward."
