Date:11/6/2008

GERMANTOWN, Md., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MiddleBrook Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MBRK), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing novel anti-infective products, today announced that three patents protecting Moxatag (amoxicillin extended-release) Tablets, 775mg, were listed in the FDA Orange Book on Oct. 24, 2008, pursuant to Section 4 of Public Law No. 110-379, which was enacted on Oct. 8, 2008.

MiddleBrook President & CEO John Thievon said, "Public Law No. 110-379 provides important incentives for drug developers to innovate in the antibiotic arena. MiddleBrook has already made progress in this therapeutic class with Moxatag, the first and only FDA-approved once-daily amoxicillin. We believe that Moxatag addresses significant unmet needs in the antibiotic therapeutic area through patient convenience and a lower overall dose."

About Moxatag:

Moxatag (extended-release amoxicillin) Tablets, 775mg, is a once-a-day extended-release formulation of amoxicillin for oral administration consisting of three components: one immediate-release component and two delayed-release components. The three components are combined in a specific ratio to prolong the release of amoxicillin from Moxatag compared to immediate-release amoxicillin. Moxatag is intended to provide a lower treatment dose, once-daily alternative to currently approved penicillin and amoxicillin regimens for the treatment of adults and pediatric patients 12 years and older with tonsillitis and/or pharyngitis.
