About NeurogesX, Inc.

NeurogesX disclaims any intent or obligation to update these forward-looking statements, and claims the protection of the Safe Harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Act. Examples of such statements include, but are not limited to, the expected benefits of NeurogesX' potential products, including its lead product candidate NGX-4010.
