QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

Caldolor®

Caldolor Pediatric Presentation

Data from Cumberland's Caldolor pediatric fever studies reflect that treatment with intravenous ibuprofen was superior in reducing temperatures in hospitalized, febrile pediatric patients when compared to treatment with oral or suppository acetaminophen. This data was presented as part of the American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference & Exhibition in San Diego, California in October 2014.  An abstract presentation entitled "A Multi-Center, Open-Label, Parallel, Active-Comparator Trial to Determine the Efficacy and Safety of Intravenous Ibuprofen in Pediatric Patients" was presented by Dr. Corrie Chumpitazi of Texas Children's Hospital, Houston, Texas. The abstract was presented in the section of Emergency Medicine and again in the section on Pharmacy and Therapeutics.

The studies showed that when given intravenous ibuprofen hospitalized children experienced significant reduction in temperature compared to those receiving acetaminophen (oral or suppository). Both single and multiple does of IV ibuprofen were well tolerated and no significant adverse events were noted.

A poster presentation entitled "A Multi-Center, Randomized, Open-label, Parallel, Active-Comparator Trial to Determine the Efficacy and Safety of Intravenous Ibuprofen in Pediatric children" was also presented twice at this National Conference.  The mission of the American Academy of Pediatrics is to attain optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents and young adults.

Caldolor Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Presentation

Data from this Caldolor study reflects that treatment with preoperative intravenous ibuprofen improved overall quality of recovery in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery.  These results were presented as a poster presentation entitled "The Effect of Preoperative Administration of IV Ibuprofen on Stress Response in Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy"  in October 2014 at the American Anesthesiology 2014 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The investigator study was completed at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey/Rutgers University and New York Methodist with Alex Bekker, MD, PhD, as the primary investigator. The study concluded that preoperative intravenous ibuprofen improved the overall quality of recovery including comfort, emotion and pain and reduced fatigue in the early postoperative period.  Further, the study results indicated that preoperative administration of intravenous ibuprofen decreased the stress hormones catecholamines and cortisol postoperatively after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

About Acetadote

Acetadote is an antidote for acetaminophen overdose indicated to prevent or lessen hepatic injury after ingestion of a potentially hepatotoxic quantity of acetaminophen. Used in the emergency department, Acetadote is approved in the United States to treat overdose of acetaminophen, a common ingredient in many over-the-counter medications. Acetadote is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity or previous anaphylactoid reactions to acetylcysteine or any components of the preparation. Serious anaphylactoid reactions, including death in a patient with asthma, have been reported in patients administered acetylcysteine intravenously. Acetadote should be used with caution in patients with asthma or where there is a history of bronchospasm. The total volume administered should be adjusted for patients weighing less than 40 kg and for those requiring fluid restriction. To avoid fluid overload, the volume of diluent should be reduced as needed. If volume is not adjusted, fluid overload can occur, potentially resulting in hyponatremia, seizure and death.  For full prescribing information, visit www.acetadote.com.

About Caldolor

Caldolor is indicated for the management of mild to moderate pain and management of moderate to severe pain as an adjunct to opioid analgesics, as well as the reduction of fever in adults. It was the first FDA-approved intravenous therapy for fever. Caldolor is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to ibuprofen or other NSAIDs, patients with asthma, urticarial, or allergic type reactions after taking aspirin or other NSAIDs. Caldolor is contraindicated for use during the peri-operative period in the setting of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Caldolor should be used with caution in patients with prior history of ulcer disease or GI bleeding, in patients with fluid retention or heart failure, in the elderly, those with renal impairment, heart failure, liver impairment, and those taking diuretics or ACE inhibitors. Blood pressure should be monitored during treatment with Caldolor.  For full prescribing information, including boxed warning, visit www.caldolor.com.

About Kristalose

Kristalose is indicated for the treatment of acute and chronic constipation. It is a unique, proprietary, crystalline form of lactulose, with no restrictions on length of therapy or patient age. Initial dosing may produce flatulence and intestinal cramps, which are usually transient.  Excessive dosage can lead to diarrhea with potential complications such as loss of fluids, hypokalemia and hypernatremia. Nausea and vomiting have been reported. Use with caution in diabetics. Kristalose is contraindicated in patients who require a low-galactose diet. Elderly, debilitated patients who receive lactulose for more than six months should have serum electrolytes (potassium, chloride, carbon dioxide) measured periodically. For full prescribing information, visit www.kristalose.com.

About Omeclamox-Pak

Omeprazole is an antisecretory drug, which works by decreasing the amount of acid the stomach produces. Clarithromycin and amoxicillin are antibacterial drugs, which inhibit the growth of bacteria allowing the stomach lining to heal. Omeclamox-Pak is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to omeprazole, any macrolide antibiotic or penicillin. The safety and effectiveness of Omeclamox-Pak in the pediatric population has not yet been established. Omeclamox-Pak was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2011.  For full prescribing information, visit www.omeclamox.com.

About Vaprisol

Vaprisol an intravenous treatment for hyponatremia used in the critical care setting. Hyponatremia is an electrolyte disturbance in which sodium ion concentration in blood plasma is lower than normal.  This can be associated with a variety of critical care conditions including congestive heart failure, liver failure, kidney failure and pneumonia.  The product is a vasopressin receptor antagonist that raises serum sodium levels and promotes free water secretion.  Vaprisol does not require dilution and has a well-defined daily dose of 10 mg, 20 mg, or 40 mg. Vaprisol was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2005 for euvolemic hyponatremia and in 2007 for hypervolemic hyponatremia. For full prescribing information, visit www.vaprisol.com.
