Adams Seeks to Develop New Prescription Adult Cough Products Using

Lipocine's Proprietary Lip'ral(TM) Technologies

CHESTER, N.J. and SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Adams Respiratory Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARxT) and Lipocine Inc., a privately- held, leading drug delivery company that uses clinically validated proprietary technologies to address key unmet drug delivery and therapeutics needs, today announced that they have entered into a license and collaboration agreement to develop new prescription adult cough products.

Commenting on the agreement, COO Robert D. Casale said, "This collaboration with Lipocine provides Adams with access to an additional proprietary platform technology and fits with our strategy of taking established compounds and adding increased functionality to create patent- protected, value-added products. The products developed through this collaboration could offer doctors a non-narcotic prescribing option to treat cough with an enhanced dosing regimen. In addition, these products will help Adams compete in the $1.1 billion prescription cough and cold market in the United States."

"Given the large and growing size of the respiratory market, and how patients can benefit from enhanced dosage forms and regimens, we are very pleased to partner with Adams, a company highly respected for its commercialization accomplishments," said Dr. Mahesh Patel, president and CEO of Lipocine Inc.

Lip'ral(TM) and Lip'ral(TM)-SSR are clinically proven oral delivery technologies for water insoluble drugs that improve absorption and can be extended to enable controlled release of insoluble drugs and drugs with pH- sensitive solubility. Multiple patents have been issued and are pending on these proprietary technologies.

Under the terms of the agreement, Adams receives an exclusive, royalty- bearing license from Lipocine to develop and market multiple prescription adult cough products in North America. Lipocine is responsible for completing the product development work and will be eligible to receive reimbursements and payments in exchange for completing certain pre-defined development milestones. Adams will be responsible for performing all aspects of clinical development, regulatory submission, manufacture and commercial operations. Financial terms of the deal are not being disclosed. Adams reconfirms that it expects diluted earnings per share in fiscal 2008 to be in the range of $1.55 to $1.75, as previously disclosed in an August 21, 2007 press release.
