A.P. Pharma Appoints Jesse Hollingsworth As Vice President Of Sales

Stocks in this article: APPA

A.P. Pharma, Inc. (OTCBB: APPA) today announced the appointment of Jesse Hollingsworth as vice president of sales.

“Jesse brings over a decade of highly relevant oncology sales experience, including a significant amount of knowledge working with group purchasing organizations,” said Robert Rosen, A.P. Pharma’s chief commercial officer. “Over the past several months, A.P. Pharma has been focused on recruiting key additions to our management team, and Jesse’s experience in oncology sales will provide insights into the sales program for our lead product candidate, APF530, which is being developed for the prevention of acute- and delayed-onset chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. We are thrilled to have Jesse join us and look forward to his contributions to our executive team.”

Most recently, Mr. Hollingsworth served as the Senior Director of Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO) and Trade Strategy at Dendreon where he developed and implemented the company’s national GPO strategy. During this time, he was also responsible for building and managing relationships with top community oncologists for the company. Prior to his work at Dendreon, Mr. Hollingsworth was the Senior Director of Strategic Business Development and Marketing at ION Solutions, an Amerisource Bergen Specialty Group where he focused on GPO, payer and practice solutions. Earlier, he worked at Amgen, Inc., where, as the Marketing Director for the oncology business unit, Mr. Hollingsworth was responsible for US reimbursement and access programs for the Neulasta®, Neupogen® and Vectibix® franchises. Mr. Hollingsworth received a B.S. in Journalism and Communications from the University of Florida and a Master of Health Administration from the University of South Florida.

About APF530

A.P. Pharma's lead product, APF530, is being developed for the prevention of both acute- and delayed-onset chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). One of the most debilitating side effects of cancer chemotherapy, CINV is a leading cause of premature discontinuation of treatment. There is only one injectable 5-HT3 antagonist approved for the prevention of delayed-onset CINV, so this indication represents an area of particular unmet medical need. APF530 contains the 5-HT3 antagonist granisetron formulated in the Company’s proprietary Biochronomer™ drug delivery system, which allows therapeutic drug levels to be maintained for five days with a single subcutaneous injection. Currently available intravenous and oral formulations of granisetron are approved only for the prevention of acute-onset CINV. Granisetron was selected for APF530 because it is widely prescribed by physicians based on a well-established record of safety and efficacy.
