About NeurogesX, Inc.
NeurogesX (Nasdaq: NGSX) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing novel pain management therapies. Its initial focus is on chronic peripheral neuropathic pain, including postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), painful HIV-distal sensory polyneuropathy (HIV-DSP) and painful diabetic neuropathy. NeurogesX' late stage product portfolio is led by its product candidate NGX-4010, a dermal patch designed to manage pain associated with peripheral neuropathic pain conditions, that the company believes offers significant advantages over other pain therapies. NeurogesX' marketing authorization application to the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) was accepted for review in September 2007 and NeurogesX plans to file a new drug application with the FDA in 2008 for PHN.

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, statements concerning future
presentations by NeurogesX and the expected benefits of NeurogesX'
potential products, including its lead product candidate NGX-4010. Such

including, but not limited to, past results of clinical trials may not be
indicative of future clinical trials results; NeurogesX' product candidate
may have unexpected adverse side effects or inadequate therapeutic
efficacy; positive results in clinical trials may not be sufficient to
obtain FDA or European regulatory approval; physician or patient reluctance
to use NGX-4010, if approved, or the inability of physicians to obtain
sufficient reimbursement for such procedures; potential alternative
therapies; maintaining adequate patent or trade secret protection without
violating the intellectual property rights of others; and other
difficulties or delays in clinical development, obtaining regulatory
approval, market acceptance and commercialization of NGX-4010 and the
advantages of NGX-4010 over other pain therapies. For further information
