Results from A.P. Pharma’s APF530 Phase 3 trial on CINV

A.P. Pharma, Inc. (OTCBB: APPA.OB), a specialty pharmaceutical company, today announced that an abstract analyzing a subset of efficacy results from its Phase 3 trial of APF530 has been published in conjunction with the American Society of Clinical Oncology's (ASCO) 2012 Annual Meeting. APF530 is the Company's lead product candidate being developed for the prevention of both acute- and delayed-onset chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).

The abstract concludes that continuous exposure to a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, through the administration of an extended-release formulation such as APF530, results in better emetic (nausea and vomiting) control than administration of a standard, short-acting 5-HT3 receptor antagonist.
