Date:8/28/2013

NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KemPharm, Inc., a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of new, safer therapies to treat pain, announced today that Travis C. Mickle, Ph.D., President and CEO of KemPharm, will present a poster on KP201 at PAINWeek 2013, the nation's largest pain conference for frontline clinicians with an interest in pain management.  

The poster, entitled "KP201: A Novel Opioid Pain Therapy with Reduced Abuse Potential and Improved Safety," will be displayed on September 6, 2013 between 6:15 PM and 7:30 PM, PDT and will detail KP201's clinical studies and unique abuse-deterrent properties, which have been shown to significantly limit narcotic exposure upon intranasal administration and intravenous injection.  Additionally, the poster will highlight the potential for KP201 to prevent or reduce opioid-induced constipation (OIC).

Dr. Mickle commented, "Showcasing KP201 at PAINWeek 2013 provides an opportunity for clinicians with an interest in pain management to gain an understanding of the drug's advantages and its potential as a future treatment option for their patients.  We welcome the opportunity to present what we believe is very compelling data on KP201 that highlight not only its ability to treat pain but the added benefit of a reduction in abuse potential and opioid-induced constipation."
