Date:11/8/2011

>Anticipated reduction in predicted 10-year cardiovascular risk among Contrave treated patients from the Phase 3 COR program using a variety of validated risk models.
  • An imaging study showing that Contrave activated regions of the brain involved in controlling the response to food cues.
  • New analyses from the COR-I and COR-BMOD Phase 3 studies highlighting weight loss among subjects completing one year of therapy.  

  • The Company continues to expect cash expenditures for the second half of 2011 to be substantially lower than for the first half of 2011. The Company does anticipate a substantial increase in planned expenditures in 2012 as the major activities for the CVOT get underway once the details of the protocol are finalized and a clinical research organization to execute the trial is engaged.  The Company plans to provide a more detailed update on the specifics of the trial as well as additional financial guidance in the first quarter of 2012.
