BioSpecifics Technologies Corp. Announces Availability of XIAFLEX(TM) for the Treatment of Dupuytren's Contracture

LYNBROOK, N.Y., March 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioSpecifics Technologies Corp. (Nasdaq: BSTC), a biopharmaceutical company developing first in class collagenase-based products, today announced that XIAFLEX™ is now available in the U.S. by prescription, for the treatment of adult Dupuytren's contracture patients with a palpable cord. Dupuytren's contracture is a debilitating disease resulting from excessive collagen deposition that causes contractures of the fingers.

"We're excited that XIAFLEX is now available to Dupuytren's contracture patients after many years of hard work," said Thomas Wegman, President of BioSpecifics. "In addition our shareholders will benefit as we begin to receive royalties, as well as a markup on cost of goods sold and other payments. We look forward to XIAFLEX's future success."

The Company's partner, Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Inc., announced earlier today that the Company has established a distribution system that will allow health care providers to access XIAFLEX in an office setting through specialty distributors and specialty pharmacies or, in the institutional setting, through selected wholesalers. Physicians can receive XIAFLEX after they have undergone training on XIAFLEX, and enrolled themselves and their site of care in the distribution network.
