Date:4/6/2010

Qutenza (capsaicin) 8% patch – the first and only product containing prescription-strength capsaicin – is now available for pain associated with postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), the nerve pain that can occur after shingles. Clinical studies have shown that a single one-hour Qutenza application can provide three months relief from pain associated with PHN.

San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) April 6, 2010 -- NeurogesX, Inc. (Nasdaq: NGSX) announced today that Qutenza® (capsaicin) 8% patch, the first and only product containing prescription-strength capsaicin, is now available. Clinical studies have shown that a single one-hour Qutenza application can provide three months relief from pain associated with postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), the nerve pain that can occur after shingles.

In November 2009, Qutenza was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the management of neuropathic pain associated with PHN. Qutenza, the first product from NeurogesX, is now available through selected specialty distributors and a specialty pharmacy—a complete list of these distributors is available at http://www.qutenza.com.

Qutenza is the first prescription-strength topical treatment for PHN to be approved by the FDA in more than 10 years. Qutenza harnesses the power of capsaicin in a dermal delivery system that targets the nerves in the skin. It is locally-acting and non-narcotic, and unlikely to cause drowsiness or interact with other drugs. Qutenza can be used alone or with other pain medications.
