POINT RICHMOND, Calif., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Transcept Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSPT) announced today that, based upon the final vote count certified by the independent inspector of elections for the special meeting of stockholders held December 19, 2013, a substantial majority of Transcept stockholders voted against or abstained from voting on the stockholder proposal to remove certain directors from the Transcept Board of Directors, and the stockholder proposal to eliminate the Transcept Tax Benefit Preservation Plan.    

"We are very pleased with the favorable outcome of these results and also for the gratifying level of stockholder support we have received for our strategic plan," stated Glenn A. Oclassen, President and Chief Executive Officer. 

About Transcept

Transcept Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of proprietary products to address important therapeutic needs in the field of neuroscience.  The company's lead development candidate is TO-2070, a novel, rapidly absorbed treatment for acute migraine incorporating dihydroergotamine (DHE) as the active drug, which Transcept intends to develop through the completion of preclinical safety studies, but not including the initiation of a Phase 1 human pharmacokinetic study.  Preclinical data suggest that TO-2070 may offer significant migraine treatment benefits beyond those provided by less convenient and more invasive DHE drug delivery methods, such as injection, liquid nasal sprays or pulmonary inhalation. 

The Transcept management team developed Intermezzo® from concept to its approval by the FDA in 2011.  Purdue holds commercialization and development rights for Intermezzo in the United States. For further information about Transcept, please visit  www.transcept.com. For information about Intermezzo, please visit  www.MyIntermezzo.com.
