Date:7/16/2014

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Avanir Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNR) today announced interim data from the phase IV PRISM II study showing that treatment with NUEDEXTA® substantially reduced symptoms of pseudobulbar affect (PBA) in patients with Alzheimer's disease/dementia.
