    The price of PTX stock soared to a new 52 week high on Wednesday's trading session, following the announcement that the company has signed an agreement with GlaxoSmithKline to acquire the U.S rights to Treximet(NYSE:R) (sumatriptan / naproxen sodium) for the acute treatment of migraine attacks with or without aura in adults.

    PTX's expects to begin sales of Treximet(R) immediately following the closing of the transaction with its approximately 90 sales professionals to specific targets in the Neurology, Psychiatry and the Primary Care audiences.

    According to the company, the acquisition of Treximet(R) further accelerates the transformation of PTX into a specialty pharmaceutical company, expands its portfolio of CNS brands, Silenor(R) and Khedezla(NYSE:TM), and with the strong presence PTX is establishing in the adjacent psychiatric market, this acquisition provides the company an opportunity to expand its reach and penetration into the very important neurology space.

    Treximet(R) is currently the lowest priced branded migraine treatment available, yet provides superior pain relief compared to placebo and to both of the single mechanism of action components.

    Pernix Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. (PTX) is a specialty pharmaceutical company primarily focused on the sales, marketing, and development of branded pharmaceutical products.
