Pacira Pharmaceuticals, a former business unit of SkyePharma, PLC, is an independent private company focused on developing and manufacturing controlled-release injectable products based on their DepoFoam(R) and Biosphere(R) drug delivery platforms.

DepoDur, which utilizes the DepoFoam technology, is a novel, single dose extended-release formulation of morphine. A single injection of DepoDur into the lumbar epidural space may provide pain relief for up to 48 hours following major surgery without the restrictions and potential complications associated with an indwelling epidural catheter. DepoDur is the only opioid approved in Europe (UK, MHRA, 2006) for epidural use. In the US, DepoDur is marketed by EKR Therapeutics, Inc.

Fred Middleton, Pacira's Chairman of the Board commented, "In DepoDur, Flynn Pharma will have a new foundation on which to continue building their hospital franchise.
