RALEIGH, N.C., April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DARA BioSciences(TM) (Nasdaq: DARA) announced today that the audit report accompanying the financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007, as included in the Company's Annual Report on 10-K filed on March 31, 2008, contained a going concern qualification. NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4350(b)(1)(B) requires that a public announcement be made regarding the receipt of an audit opinion that contains a going concern qualification.

In making the announcement, John C.
