AcelRx to Present at the Lazard 6th Annual Healthcare Conference

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., November 13, 2009 -- AcelRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced that Thomas Schreck, President & Chief Executive Officer, and Pamela Palmer, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer, will be presenting at the Lazard Capital Markets 6th Annual Healthcare Conference to be held November 17-18, 2009, at The St. Regis Hotel, New York.

AcelRx Pharmaceuticals’ presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, November 18, at 3:15 PM Eastern Time.

Mr. Schreck and Dr. Palmer will be providing an update on three market-driven AcelRx products: ARX-01, Sufentanil NanoTab PCA System, a proprietary drug/device product which offers a non-invasive alternative to intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (IV PCA) for the management of acute post-operative pain in patients requiring opioid analgesia during hospitalization; ARX-02, Sufentanil NanoTab Breakthrough Pain Management System for treatment of cancer pain, a proprietary sublingual dosage form of sufentanil; and ARX-03, a proprietary sublingual dosage form combining an opioid, sufentanil, with a benzodiazepine, triazolam. ARX-03 is designed to address the current unmet need for a non-invasive product to provide mild sedation, anxiolysis and analgesia with rapid onset of action for painful and anxiety-producing office-based surgical procedures.

AcelRx has reported positive Phase 2 results from three studies with ARX-01 and successfully completed an End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the FDA in late October, 2009.

Mr. Schreck will discuss anticipated Company milestones for the remainder of 2009 and those expected to occur in 2010.
