Anesiva Announces New Zingo Marketing and Distribution Agreement
Date:4/29/2008

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Anesiva, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANSV) today announced a new exclusive Zingo(TM) marketing and distribution agreement, with Green Vision Company, for several Middle Eastern countries. Zingo (lidocaine hydrochloride monohydrate) powder intradermal injection system is approved in the U.S. to provide topical local analgesia prior to peripheral IV insertions or blood draws in children three to 18 years of age.

Green Vision is a pharmaceutical company headquartered in Qatar. The agreement covers Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. Green Vision will be responsible for obtaining and maintaining product registrations in the licensed territories, as well as sales and marketing in the region. Terms of the agreement include an upfront payment, regulatory and sales milestones and royalty payments.

"This agreement further extends the potential markets for Zingo, a needle-free, local analgesic with a rapid onset of action, prior to peripheral venous access procedures in children, and is further validation of the unmet need Zingo addresses," said John P. McLaughlin, Anesiva's chief executive officer.

About Zingo(TM)

Zingo(TM) is an easy-to-administer, single-use, needle-free system that delivers sterile lidocaine powder to provide topical, local anesthesia to reduce the pain associated with peripheral IV insertions or blood draws. Zingo's rapid onset of action allows intravenous line placement or venipuncture to begin one to three minutes after administration. Zingo is approved in the U.S. to reduce the pain associated with peripheral IV insertions or blood draws in children three to 18 years of age. In clinical trials, the most common adverse events with Zingo were redness (erythema), red dots (petechiae) and swelling (edema). In March 2008, Anesiva submitted a supplemental new drug application (sNDA) to expand the label indication for Zingo to include adults, based on a positive Phase 3 trial in nearly 700 patients.
