AcelRx Pharmaceuticals Entered into the First Amendment to the Collaboration and License Agreement with Gr nenthal GmbH

On July 22, 2015, AcelRx Pharmaceuticals entered into the first amendment effective as of July 17, 2015, to the collaboration and license agreement between AcelRx and Gr nenthal GmbH, effective as of December 16, 2013 and the first amendment effective as of July 17, 2015, to the related Manufacture and Supply Agreement, between AcelRx and Gr nenthal, effective as of December 16, 2013. The License Agreement grants Gr nenthal rights to commercialize Zalviso (formerly known as ARX-01), AcelRx's novel sublingual patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) system in the countries of the European Union, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway and Australia for human use in pain treatment within or dispensed by hospitals, hospices, nursing homes and other medically-supervised settings. AcelRx retains rights with respect to the Product outside of the Field as well as in countries outside the Territory, including the U.S., Asia and Latin America. The MSA provides for AcelRx to manufacture and supply the Product for use in the Field for the Territory exclusively for Gr nenthal. In the MSA Amendment and License Amendment, the parties amended the Product supply configurations and packaging of Product components and accessories, and associated pricing therefor, which AcelRx will manufacture and supply to Gr nenthal for the Territory. As consideration for an increase in the pricing of the Product components and accessories as part of the agreed packaging configurations, the total milestone payments from Gr nenthal contingent upon achieving specified net sales target milestones were reduced from a total of $171.5 million to $166.0 million. The parties also amended the development plan for the Product in the Territory, providing for additional near-term development costs to be paid by Gr nenthal.

AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces Positive CHMP Opinion for Zalviso in the Management of Acute Moderate-to-Severe Post-Operative Pain in Adult Patients

AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), has adopted a positive opinion for Zalviso™ (sufentanil sublingual tablet system). The opinion, while not binding, recommends marketing authorization for Zalviso for the management of acute moderate-to-severe post-operative pain in adult patients. Zalviso is an investigational drug-device combination product designed to deliver a sublingual formulation of sufentanil 15 mcg through a proprietary pre-programmed, non-invasive, patient-controlled device. Grunenthal Group, AcelRx’s licensee in Europe, submitted the Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) under the centralized procedure in July of 2014. The positive opinion by the CHMP will next be reviewed by the European Commission for central marketing authorization in the European Union (EU), which has the authority to approve medicines for the 28 member countries of the EU which will also be valid in Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. If approved, Grunenthal expects to launch Zalviso beginning in the first half of 2016. In addition, AcelRx would be eligible to receive a $15 million milestone payment from Grunenthal upon approval.
