Mark Wallace, M.D., Professor of Clinical Anesthesiology at the Center for Pain Medicine of the University of California at San Diego ("UCSD") will present results from a proof of concept clinical trial titled, "NGX426, An Oral AMPA-Kainate Antagonist, is Effective in Human Capsaicin Induced Hyperalgesia Model." NGX426 is a prodrug of Raptor's parenterally administered product candidate tezampanel. When given subcutaneously and intravenously tezampanel demonstrated statistically significant analgesic effect in five Phase II trials. The five trials were completed in acute migraine, nociceptive pain and neuropathic pain models.

The objective of the single center, double-blind, randomized study conducted by Dr. Wallace was to demonstrate that the orally administered prodrug NGX426, maintains the analgesic effect previously shown for the active moiety tezampanel. Using a cross-over design, a total of 18 study subjects received single doses of 90 mg of NGX426, 150 mg of NGX426 or placebo in each of three treatment periods. Pain was induced by injecting 250 ug of capsaicin between layers of skin in the forearm at 30 minutes and 120 minutes after dosing.

Results and details of the study will be presented on November 20, 2009 during Dr. Wallace's presentation.
