Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Announces Positive Data from Commercial Patient Chart Review in E-posters at ASSH Meeting
Date:9/8/2011

In abstract 21, the retrospective chart review results indicate that real-world use of XIAFLEX resulted in a higher percentage of patients who achieved release after the first injection than was reported in CORD I, potentially due to use of a
