AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACRX) announced that the Company and its investigators will be presenting results from the Phase 3 SAP302 study of ARX-04 (sufentanil sublingual tablet, 30 mcg) in 76 patients who were treated for moderate-to-severe acute pain in the emergency department. An oral presentation reviewing these results, including the types of injuries that were sustained by patients in the study, will be made at the International Society for Burn Injuries (ISBI), which is taking place August 29 – September 1 in Miami, Florida.

As previously reported, adult patients treated with ARX-04 in this study experienced a mean pain intensity difference of 2.9 from a baseline of 8.1 on a validated 0 – 10 numeric rating scale at 60 minutes, meeting the study's primary objective. Injuries sustained by patients in SAP302 included fractures, sprains/strains, lacerations and burns, among others. Study participants tolerated ARX-04 well, with nausea (9%), somnolence (5%) and vomiting (4%) comprising the most commonly reported adverse events.

The study additionally concluded that ARX-04 had no overall impact on cognitive function.
