About Anesiva and its Diverse Pipeline of Pain Products

Anesiva, Inc. is a late-stage biopharmaceutical company that seeks to be the leader in the development and commercialization of novel pharmaceutical products for pain management. Anesiva has one FDA-approved product, Zingo(TM), for the reduction of pain associated with peripheral venous access procedures in children ages three to 18. In clinical trials, the most common adverse reactions to Zingo were redness (erythema), red dots (petechiae) and swelling (edema). The next product in Anesiva's pipeline, Adlea(TM), is currently in two pivotal Phase 3 clinical trials to support an indication for the management of acute pain following orthopedic surgery. Adlea has been shown to reduce pain after only a single administration for weeks to months in multiple settings in mid-stage clinical trials for site-specific, acute and chronic, moderate-to-severe pain. Anesiva is based in South San Francisco, CA.
