NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq: CPIX) today announced that results from a clinical trial of Caldolor® (ibuprofen) Injection will be presented at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) in New Orleans, Louisiana.

A poster presentation of the study, entitled "A Multi-Center, Randomized, Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Trial of Ibuprofen Injection (IVIb) for Treatment of Pain in Post-Operative Orthopedic Adult Patients," will be presented daily March 10 – 12 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Neil Singla, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Lotus Clinical Research, Inc., is the principal investigator of the study and Byron Kaelin, BSHS, RN, Manager of Clinical Operations at Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc., is the presenting author.
