SAN DIEGO, Aug. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zogenix, Inc. (Nasdaq:ZGNX), a pharmaceutical company commercializing and developing products for the treatment of central nervous system disorders and pain, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Roger Hawley, chief executive officer of Zogenix, stated, "During the second quarter, our sales representatives continued to drive demand for SUMAVEL DosePro in the neurology segment while also assuming coverage of key primary care physicians formerly called on by our previous co-promotion partner, Astellas. We are pleased with the productivity levels from our sales representatives in their first quarter promoting the brand on their own. While revenue was down from the first quarter, we incurred no co-promotion service fee in the second quarter. Moving forward, we expect to accelerate growth with our new co-promotion partner, Mallinckrodt, which will double our reach into internal medicine and primary care and allow our team to focus on neurologists, headache specialists and high-prescribing physicians. The Mallinckrodt team has extensive experience in the pain market and we are excited to have them begin promoting SUMAVEL DosePro to their customers in late August."
