Baudax Bio Inc. (BXRX) has received FDA approval for ANJESO, which is indicated for the management of moderate to severe pain, alone or in combination with other non-NSAID analgesics.

ANJESO that will be administered as a once-a-day intravenous (IV) bolus push is the only available 24-hour, intravenous (IV) COX-2 preferential non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) and offers once-daily dosing.

Baudax expects ANJESO to be available in the U.S. in late April or early May 2020.
