Date:1/13/2014

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cadence Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CADX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on acquiring, in-licensing, developing and commercializing proprietary products principally for use in the hospital setting, today announced preliminary (unaudited) estimates for net product revenues from sales of OFIRMEV® (acetaminophen) injection for the three months ended December 31, 2013, of approximately $33.3 million, and net product revenue for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, of approximately $110.5 million.

"The fourth quarter and full year 2013 were exciting for Cadence as OFIRMEV sales continued to grow driven by robust demand and fueled by an increasing desire for non-narcotic analgesic options in the hospital setting," said Ted Schroeder, President and CEO of Cadence.  "We anticipate that sales of OFIRMEV will continue to increase in 2014, and expect full year 2014 net revenue for OFIRMEV to range between $173.0 million and $177.0 million."

Revenue Guidance
As of January 13, 2014, Cadence expects that net product revenue from sales of OFIRMEV for the twelve months ending December 31, 2014, will range between $173.0 million and $177.0 million.

Cadence will provide a more complete discussion of its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013, during the Company's regularly scheduled quarterly conference call.

About OFIRMEV® (Acetaminophen) Injection
OFIRMEV (acetaminophen) injection (1000 mg / 100 mL, 10 mg / mL; for intravenous use only), Cadence Pharmaceuticals' proprietary intravenous formulation of acetaminophen, is indicated for the management of mild to moderate pain, the management of moderate to severe pain with adjunctive opioid analgesics, and the reduction of fever. The FDA approval of OFIRMEV was based on data from clinical trials in approximately 1,020 adult and 355 pediatric patients. These trials included two studies evaluating the safety and effectiveness of OFIRMEV in the treatment of pain, and one study evaluating OFIRMEV in the treatment of fever. The effectiveness of OFIRMEV for the treatment of acute pain and fever has not been studied in pediatric patients less than 2 years of age.

Important Safety InformationRISK OF MEDICATION ERRORS AND HEPATOTOXICITYTake care when prescribing, preparing, and administering OFIRMEV injection to avoid dosing errors which could result in accidental overdose and death.OFIRMEV contains acetaminophen. Acetaminophen has been associated with cases of acute liver failure, at times resulting in liver transplant and death.
Most of the cases of liver injury are associated with the use of acetaminophen at doses that exceed the recommended maximum daily limits, and often involve more than one acetaminophen-containing product.OFIRMEV is contraindicated in patients with severe hepatic impairment, severe active liver disease or with known hypersensitivity to acetaminophen or to any of the excipients in the formulation.  Acetaminophen should be used with caution in patients with the following conditions: hepatic impairment or active hepatic disease, alcoholism, chronic malnutrition, severe hypovolemia, or severe renal impairment. Rarely, acetaminophen may cause serious skin reactions such as acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP), Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS), and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), which can be fatal.  Discontinue OFIRMEV immediately if symptoms associated with allergy or hypersensitivity occur, or at the first appearance of skin rash. Do not use in patients with acetaminophen allergy.

The most common adverse reactions in patients treated with OFIRMEV were nausea, vomiting, headache, and insomnia in adult patients and nausea, vomiting, constipation, pruritus, agitation, and atelectasis in pediatric patients. The antipyretic effects of OFIRMEV may mask fever in patients treated with postsurgical pain. OFIRMEV is approved for use in patients ≥ 2 years of age. Do not exceed the recommended maximum daily dose of OFIRMEV. OFIRMEV should be administered only as a 15-minute infusion.
