Kristalose(R) Clinical Data to Be Presented at Digestive Disease Week(R) Meeting
Date:4/26/2010

NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Nasdaq: CPIX) today announced that results from a patient preference study evaluating Kristalose® (lactulose) for Oral Solution, a prescription laxative packaged as a crystalline powder, will be presented at the 2010 Digestive Disease Week® meeting in New Orleans.  

A poster presentation of the study, entitled "An open-label, multi-center, randomized, 7-day crossover study of the preference and safety of powder and liquid lactulose in adult patients with chronic constipation," will be presented on May 4 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Charles F. Barish, M.D., President of Wake Research Associates in Raleigh, N.C. and Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, and Bryan Voss, Ph.D., formerly with the Department of Pharmacology at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Research Associate at Cumberland Pharmaceuticals, are the presenting authors.

The data from this trial showed that a majority of study patients with chronic constipation preferred the taste and portability of Kristalose over liquid lactulose. No significant difference in adverse events between patients who took Kristalose and those taking liquid lactulose was noted. Kristalose is the only prescription-strength laxative available in pre-measured powder packets.

Concurrent with the presentation, the poster will be available on Cumberland Pharmaceuticals' website at http://investor.shareholder.com/cpix/events.cfm. Copies may also be obtained by contacting the Company at 615-255-0068.
