Anesiva Completes Enrollment in Phase 3 Clinical Trial of Zingo(TM) to Treat Pain Associated With Venous Access Procedures in Adults
Date:8/28/2007

Completion of Adult Trial Enrollment follows FDA approval of Zingo in

Children

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Anesiva, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANSV) announced today that it has completed enrollment of the Phase 3 clinical study of Zingo(TM) (lidocaine hydrochloride monohydrate) powder intradermal injection system to reduce pain associated with peripheral venous access procedures in adults. Zingo, a fast-acting topical, needle-free system for local analgesia, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on August 16, 2007 to reduce the pain associated with venous access procedures, such as IV insertions or blood draws, in children ages three to 18. Anesiva expects to announce results from the adult trial in October.

"Our goal is to utilize the data from this Phase 3 study to file a supplemental new drug application for the use of Zingo in adults," said John P. McLaughlin, chief executive officer of Anesiva. "In addition, we look forward to providing more detail on the commercialization of Zingo in the approved indication for children in the coming weeks."

Venous access procedures, such as IV insertions and blood draws, are among the most common interventions performed in hospitals, with more than 400 million such procedures performed each year in U.S. hospitals.

The Phase 3 study of Zingo in adults enrolled 699 patients undergoing intravenous cannulation or venipuncture procedures at multiple clinical centers in the U.S. Patients were randomized to receive treatment with either Zingo or placebo approximately one to three minutes prior to the peripheral venous access procedure.

About Zingo

Zingo is a ready-to-use, single-use, needle-free system that delivers 0.5 mg sterile lidocaine powder into 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.
