Date:7/7/2009

BRISTOL, Tenn., July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- King Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: KG) today announced additional information regarding the resubmission plan for the REMOXY(R) New Drug Application (NDA). The Company is not required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to conduct clinical trials in order to provide additional safety or efficacy data in patients with moderate-to-severe chronic pain. However, as part of the resubmission plan, and in order to strengthen the NDA, King plans to conduct a likeability study and a pharmacokinetic trial in volunteers. The Company continues to anticipate the resubmission could occur mid-year 2010.

In mid-2008, an NDA for REMOXY(R) was accepted by the FDA and was granted Priority Review. In December 2008, Pain Therapeutics, Inc. received a Complete Response Letter from the FDA.
