Sumavel(TM) DosePro(TM) (sumatriptan injection) Approved by FDA for Acute Migraine and Cluster Headache: First Product Featuring Novel DosePro Needle-Free Delivery System
Date:7/16/2009

SAN DIEGO, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Zogenix, Inc. ("Zogenix"), a privately held pharmaceutical company, today announced that it has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its New Drug Application (NDA) for Sumavel DosePro (sumatriptan injection) needle-free delivery system to treat acute migraine, with or without aura, and cluster headache. Sumavel DosePro is a first-of-its-kind needle-free delivery system for subcutaneous sumatriptan, a treatment that provides migraine relief within 10 minutes for some patients.

Cady, M.D., director of the Headache Care Center in Springfield, Mo. "Sumavel DosePro will be a welcome treatment option because it combines key benefits - the rapid efficacy of subcutaneous sumatriptan and a simple to use needle-free delivery system."

Triptans, the most commonly prescribed class of drugs for the treatment of migraine, are a $3.3 billion market in the U.S. (Source: Wolters Kluwer Health, Source(R) Pharmaceutical Audit Suite (PHAST). Based on AWP for U.S. retail prescriptions of drugs in the triptan market, May 2008 --April 2009.) According to the National Headache Foundation, acute migraines affect nearly 30 million Americans. Tablets are a treatment option for some migraine sufferers, but not all patients are satisfied with tablet therapy. Fast-acting, non-oral options are needed particularly for those who experience migraine episodes associated with sudden onset, waking, nausea or vomiting.

The FDA approval of Sumavel DosePro is based on extensive efficacy and safety data from original filings for needle-based sumatriptan injection (IMITREX((R))), in addition to clinical studies conducted by Zogenix on bioequivalence, usability and saf
