AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACRX) announced that the Company and investigators will be presenting two e-posters at the European Congress on Emergency Medicine (ECEM), which is being held October 1-5, 2016 in Vienna, Austria. Both e-posters will be displayed on monitors throughout the meeting, and will be available following the conclusion of the conference on the AcelRx Publications webpage.

The first presentation summarizes the safety and efficacy findings from the Phase 3 SAP302 study of ARX-04 (sufentanil sublingual tablet, 30 mcg) in patients who were admitted to the emergency department with an injury or trauma associated with moderate-to-severe acute pain. Results from this trial showed substantial reductions in pain intensity (mean 2.9 out of 10 on a validated pain scale) within the first hour among the 76 patients treated with ARX-04. The second e-poster provides insights into the direct and indirect (labor, pharmacy, etc.) costs associated with the administration of intravenous (IV) opioids. Based on an analysis of over 600 hospitals, AcelRx has determined that an initial IV dose of an opioid, such as morphine, hydromorphone and fentanyl, ranges from $143 to $145 in U.S. emergency departments.

Details on the presentations are as follows:
