Questcor Pharmaceuticals Reports Strong Finish to 2010
Date:1/10/2011

ANAHEIM, Calif., Jan. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOR) today reported a strong finish to 2010.  The Company estimates that 353 new, paid Acthar prescriptions for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) were filled and shipped during the quarter, up 66% from the year ago period and up 9% from the third quarter of 2010.  1,680 vials and 6,666 vials of the company's principal drug, H.P.

This late surge in sales led to a 9% sequential quarterly growth in the number of new, paid MS prescriptions, while new, paid prescriptions for infantile spasms (IS) remained within its historic range," said Don M. Bailey, President and CEO of Questcor Pharmaceuticals.  "In October 2010, Acthar received FDA approval for the treatment of IS. During the August to October time frame, we doubled our sales force to accelerate our MS sales effort and to initiate promotional efforts for IS.  The expanded sales force was fully trained and began making both MS and IS sales calls November 1st.  Interestingly, in addition to the sooner-than-expected uptick in MS sales, IS sales also increased during December.  Our quarterly vial shipments continue to be subject to significant variation due to the size and timi
