CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. -- NuPathe Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company developing innovative products for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric diseases, today announced that Jane Hollingsworth, chief executive officer, will present at the Cowen and Company 29th Annual Health Care Conference. The conference will be held at The Boston Marriott Copley Place in Boston from March 16-19, 2009. Ms. Hollingsworth will present on Wednesday, March 18, 2009, at 10:00 a.m. in the MIT Room, 3rd Floor.

Ms. Hollingsworth will provide an overview of the company and NuPathe's innovative therapeutic products, including Zelrix[TM], a transdermal patch for the treatment of acute migraine. Following the presentation, Ms. Hollingsworth and Keith Goldan, vice president and chief financial officer, will be available for questions from the audience.

Migraine affects approximately 28 million Americans, many of whom commonly experience nausea and vomiting as symptoms of the condition. For nearly three out of ten migraine sufferers, migraine-related nausea interferes with their ability to take oral medications. Zelrix combines NuPathe's SmartRelief[TM] proprietary iontophoretic transdermal technology with sumatriptan, the most widely prescribed treatment for acute migraine, to bypass gastrointestinal issues associated with migraine.
