About Heron Therapeutics, Inc.

Heron Therapeutics, Inc. (formerly A.P. Pharma, Inc.) is a specialty pharmaceutical company developing products using its proprietary Biochronomer™ polymer-based drug delivery platform. This drug delivery platform is designed to improve the therapeutic profile of injectable pharmaceuticals by converting them from products that must be injected once or twice per day to products that need to be injected only once every one or two weeks. The Company's lead product, SUSTOL™ (granisetron), is being developed for the prevention of both acute- and delayed-onset chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). Heron is also utilizing its Biochronomer technology to develop an extended release formulation of an established local anesthetic for the treatment of post-surgical pain. In recently completed, post-surgical animal models of pain, the Company's drug candidates demonstrated statistically significant pain relief for five days, representing the potential to significantly reduce the need for opiates post-surgery and the length of post-surgical hospital stays. Heron’s lead product candidate in this program, HTX-011, is a unique combination of local analgesic agent bupivacaine and the NSAID meloxicam utilizing its Biochronomer extended release technology.
