Date:11/3/2008

GERMANTOWN, Md., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MiddleBrook Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MBRK), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing novel anti-infective products, today announced that it has retained national account firm VCG & Associates. VCG & Associates will serve as MiddleBrook's strategic and tactical managed care partner, assisting in product pricing and reimbursement, contract administration, national account management and government account coverage.

President and CEO John Thievon said, "VCG & Associates has mirrored MiddleBrook's excitement regarding the upcoming launch of MOXATAG, the first and only FDA-approved once-daily amoxicillin, and it's clear they have a strong commitment to the launch's success."

Thievon continued, "While our professional field force will champion the advantages of MOXATAG over currently available amoxicillin therapies with healthcare practitioners across the nation, VCG & Associates will lead the charge to inform and engage managed care organizations, as well as government and non-retail outlets throughout the country. This is an exciting alliance for MiddleBrook."

ABOUT MOXATAG(TM):

MOXATAG (extended-release amoxicillin) 775mg tablets are 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.
