Star Scientific Files Second Quarter Financial Results; Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals Reports Early Promising Results in Studies Assessing Safety and Viability of Active Components for a Non-Nicotine Nutraceutical (CigRx(TM))

"There is increasing evidence in recent years that the association between nicotine addiction and MAO reduction in smokers is important. It is one thing to read research reports and publications but it is quite another to see primary data showing that tobacco can decrease human MAO B to levels similar to those seen in strong antidepressants." Rock Creek's research program is central to its evolving strategies and to the continued development of products for the treatment of cigarette addiction, including a non-nicotine nutraceutical that would be marketed under the brand name CigRx(TM). At the same time Star continues its efforts to identify a pharmaceutical or health-related entity that could assist in the distribution and consumer acceptance of a nutraceutical product such as CigRx(TM).
