Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Launches Caldolor(R) in the United States for Treatment of Pain and Fever
Date:9/9/2009

chieve improved pain control with less opioid analgesic medication, thereby improving patient satisfaction," said Dr. Paul F. White, Professor and holder of the McDermott Distinguished Chair of Anesthesiology & Pain Management at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and visiting scientist at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. "The use of IV ibuprofen can help reduce opioid-related side effects, and Caldolor is the first IV analgesic with antipyretic and anti-inflammatory properties."

Until now, the only injectable drugs available to reduce pain were opioids, such as morphine and meperdine, and the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug ketorolac. Opioids can cause sedation, nausea, vomiting, cognitive impairment and respiratory depression, and ketorolac has been associated with side effects such as increased risk of bleeding as well as gastrointestinal and renal complications. Caldolor is the first new injectable product available in the United States in 20 years for IV pain treatment, and provides safe and effective relief from both pain and fever. Caldolor also offers reliable IV delivery of ibuprofen, which has a long history of safe and effective use as an oral formulation.

"We are greatly encouraged by the medical community's favorable early reception for Caldolor, particularly the rate at which hospitals are adding the product to their formularies," Mr. Kazimi added. "Moreover, with the imminent onset of the flu season, we envision Caldolor as becoming an important new treatment for high fever often seen in hospitalized flu patients."

Hospitals and other healthcare institutions interested in obtaining product supplies should contact their wholesalers. Medical inquiries should be directed to Cumberland's Professional Affairs group at 877-484-2700. For more product information about Caldolor, please visit
