Caldolor(R) (Ibuprofen) Injection Demonstrates Significant Fever Reduction in Hospitalized Burn Patients
Date:11/23/2009

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. ( CPIX) today announced positive new top-line results from a study evaluating the safety and efficacy of Caldolor (ibuprofen) Injection in treating fever in hospitalized burn patients.

Statistical significance was achieved for the primary endpoint of reducing fever in burn patients over the first 24 hours of treatment. The study evaluated 61 adult burn patients with second or third degree burns covering more than 10 percent total body surface area. Other participant criteria included an anticipated hospital stay of more than 72 hours and temperatures of 38.0 degrees C (100.4 degrees F) or greater.

Patients were administered 800mg of Caldolor every six hours for five consecutive days.

The study raised no safety concerns and the medication was well tolerated. There was no difference in adverse effects between patients who received a placebo and those receiving Caldolor.

According to the American Burn Association, 1.1 million burn injuries require medical attention each year in the United States. Of these, approximately 50,000 burn injuries require hospitalization, 20,000 are major burn injuries affecting 25 percent of total body surface area and 4,500 people die. In addition, up to 10,000 people in the United States die every year from burn-related infections.(1)

"Hospitalized burn patients often suffer from both fever and pain and our review of this data, along with results from our previous clinical work, supports our belief that Caldolor can be extremely helpful in treating these patients," said A.J. Kazimi, Chief Executive Officer of Cumberland Pharmaceuticals. "Further, we are thrilled to reaffirm that Caldolor can be administered to hospitalized patients for five consecutive days with no safety issues."
