NeurogesX sold its Qutenza pain patch and an investigational liquid formulation called NGX-1998 to Acorda Therapeutics. NeurogesX will receive $7 million upfront, an additional $2 million if NGX-1998 wins FDA approval plus $3 million contingent on the drug's first-year sales hitting $100 million. The deal does not cover Europe, the Middle East or Africa, where Astellas Pharma holds marketing rights.
