Dr. Gerald Yakatan Joins Imprimis Pharmaceuticals Science and Regulatory Advisory Board
Date:8/7/2012

SOLANA BEACH, Calif., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC Markets Group: IMMY), a specialty pharmaceutical company developing non-invasive, topically delivered products, announced that it has created a Science and Regulatory Advisory Board and that Dr. Gerald Yakatan has become the inaugural member of the newly created board.  The Imprimis Science and Regulatory Advisory Board will be comprised of scientists and pharmaceutical industry thought leaders who have demonstrated a record of success in developing drugs for clearance by the US Food & Drug Administration.  The mission of the Imprimis Science and Regulatory Advisory Board will be to advise Imprimis management on the future development of the patented Accudel topical drug delivery platform and to assist in the design and execution of the planned Phase 3 clinical studies for Imprimis's topical 10% ketoprofen anti-inflammatory drug called Impracor. 

Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CEO Mark L. Baum stated, "The Imprimis team welcomes Dr. Yakatan to our newly created Science and Regulatory Advisory Board.  Jerry is an impressive figure in the pharmaceutical industry, experiencing success in the academic world at University of Texas, Austin where he served as a Professor and eventually as Chairman of the Pharmaceutics Department, and later in industry where in 1980 he joined Warner Lambert as Director of Pharmacokinetics and Drug Metabolism and eventually was promoted to Vice President of Product Development Worldwide.  At Warner Lambert, Dr. Yakatan participated in the development of several drug products including Lopid®, Lipitor®, Eryc® Accupril®, Neurontin® and the Benadryl® cough line.  In 1998, Dr. Yakatan began his tenure at Avanir Pharmaceuticals as President and Chief Executive Officer where he led the development efforts of Nuedexta™ and where he was responsible for the regulatory approval and commercialization of Abreva®. Dr. Yakatan is a Fellow of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists and of the American College of Clinical Pharmacology."

Dr. Yakatan commented, "I have met with the Imprimis managers on several occasions and have reviewed the significant opportunity Imprimis has.  I believe that my experience in participating in every step of the drug development process, including the stage that Impracor is at now, can make a difference – in terms of avoiding certain trial design pitfalls, managing the trial process and ultimately presenting a relevant and compelling body of data to the FDA for approval." 

Baum added, "Our Impracor upcoming trials are 'must-win' and our team has invested considerably in reviewing our existing data and designing a new trial that has the benefit of this 'rear view' analysis.  We believe that Jerry's leadership and participation on our Science and Regulatory Advisory Board will provide critical guidance to our team as we approach this important project as well as future development opportunities with our patented Accudel topical drug delivery platform."
