Date:2/8/2011

HAYWARD, Calif., Feb. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Anthera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANTH), a biopharmaceutical company developing drugs to treat serious diseases associated with abnormal auto-immune responses and inflammation, today announced that it has appointed Lawrence Rosania to the position of Vice President of Global Regulatory Affairs and Compliance. Mr. Rosania will be responsible for developing global regulatory strategies and managing all aspects of regulatory affairs.

"Larry's expertise in biologics and large molecule manufacturing is particularly valuable to Anthera as we consider a number of Phase 3 clinical options for A-623," said Paul F. Truex, Anthera's President and Chief Executive Officer. "A-623 represents a unique autoimmune platform and as we progress our own fermentation and manufacturing campaigns it will be imperative to have this depth of experience around the table.  We look forward to Larry's guidance in advancing our entire pipeline of products towards commercialization."

Prior to joining Anthera, Mr. Rosania served in a variety of senior-level consultant roles at The Weinberg Group, Quintiles Transnational, and as an independent consultant for the last 12 years. Prior to that, he served as Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and Compliance at LXR Biotechnology, Elan Pharmaceuticals and Athena Neurosciences, where he led the filings of two of their biologics, MyoBloc® (rimabotulinumtoxin B) for a Cervical Dystonia indication and Tysabri® (natalizumab) for a Multiple Sclerosis indication. Before relocating to the Bay Area in 1996, he had worked in various senior-level positions in R&D drug development, CMC, Regulatory Affairs and GXP Quality/Compliance at Novo-Nordisk, Bristol-Myers Squibb and E.R. Squibb & Sons, Inc. in Princeton, New Jersey. At Novo Nordisk, Mr. Rosania developed and implemented the US regulatory strategy and filings for r-hGH (Norditropin®), targeting a growth deficiency in children indication, and r-FVIIa (NovoSeven®), targeting a hemophilia indication. Mr. Rosania has an M.S. degree in Chemistry from Drexel University and an M.S. degree in Organizational Dynamics from The University of Pennsylvania.
