Partnership Opportunities

At Pacira, we understand that business partnerships can help us achieve mutual goals of developing and delivering innovative new therapies to improve patient care. We are well-positioned as a partner of choice given our financial strength, deep clinical and commercial expertise in the hospital and ambulatory markets, significant partnership network, and proven track record for improving market access to opioid-sparing strategies. As we look ahead, we remain committed to collaborations with like-minded partners who share our commitment to minimizing the use of opioids.


The potential benefits of pMVL have attracted partners pursuing reformulations of product candidates with significant market potential. We are developing new formulations of traditional small molecule and biologic therapies to build a pipeline of commercial opportunities for proprietary pursuit, as well as for out-licensing. For partners, this approach may provide a low risk clinical and regulatory development opportunity.

EXPAREL Partnerships

Pacira owns all product rights to EXPAREL for human use in all markets. Aratana owns animal rights for bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension in all markets. Nuance owns exclusive rights to develop and commercialize EXPAREL in China. As such, we believe the global potential for EXPAREL use in the management of postsurgical pain presents a large addressable market opportunity.
