Anesiva Announces FDA Approval of Supplemental New Drug Application to Expand Zingo(TM) Indication
Date:1/9/2009

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Anesiva, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANSV) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Anesiva's supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) to expand the indication for Zingo(TM) to treat the pain associated with blood draws to include adults. Zingo (lidocaine hydrochloride monohydrate) powder intradermal injection system was previously approved to treat the pain associated with peripheral IV insertions and blood draws in children three to 18 years of age. The notification was received according to PDUFA deadlines.

As announced in November 2008, Anesiva ceased Zingo commercial activities to focus on the development of Adlea(TM), its novel non-opioid, long-acting analgesic drug candidate for the management of acute pain following orthopedic surgeries. Anesiva is seeking to license Zingo as well as the underlying drug delivery technology and intellectual property.

About Anesiva

Anesiva, Inc. seeks to be a leader in the development and commercialization of novel pharmaceutical products for pain management. Anesiva's lead product candidate is Adlea, a novel small molecule formulation of capsaicin that is currently in development for the management of acute pain following orthopedic surgeries. Adlea has been shown in clinical trials to provide extended pain relief after only a single administration in multiple indications for site-specific, acute and chronic, moderate-to-severe pain.

In December 2008, Anesiva announced that a Phase 3 trial of Adlea achieved its primary efficacy endpoint of reduced post-surgical pain versus placebo (p=0.03) following total knee arthroplasty (TKA, or total knee replacement surgery) at four to 48 hours after surgery. The trial also met its key secondary endpoint with Adlea demonstrating a highly significant reduction in opioid medication consumption compared to placebo (p=0.005).

The Phase 3 TKA trial, known as ACTIVE-2 (Assessment of highly purified Capsaicin To ImproVE pain management after orthopedic surgery), also showed that Adlea's safety profile of adverse events, wound healing, and wound sensory function were similar to placebo over the study duration.

Anesiva is based in South San Francisco, CA. For more information, go to www.anesiva.com.
