Zempsky, M.D., a pediatric pain specialist and associate professor of Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, who will discuss clinical experience with Zingo and the role it can play in pediatric medicine.
Zingo is a ready-to-use, single-use, needle-free system that delivers sterile lidocaine powder into the epidermis of the skin and provides topical, local analgesia in one to three minutes after administration. This rapid onset, which may be especially useful in pediatric populations and busy emergency room settings, means the product can be incorporated into a medical procedure allowing uninterrupted care, an important advantage over current options. In addition to the hospital setting, Zingo may be used in physicians' offices and clinical laboratories. Anesiva also recently completed enrollment of a Phase 3 trial evaluating Zingo in adults with the goal of expanding the label beyond the pediatric population.
