Commenting on the approval, Mark Trudeau, President and CEO of Mallinckrodt, stated, "The FDA approval of XARTEMIS XR exemplifies Mallinckrodt's dedication to developing and providing new treatment options for people with pain. Mallinckrodt remains committed to continuing its work to develop innovative formulations for our product lines to help ensure access to appropriate pain treatment for the millions of patients suffering from acute pain, and we will continue to work closely with the FDA as we engage in further development programs for XARTEMIS XR and other products utilizing this technology platform."
