Questcor Pharmaceuticals Responds to Questions From Investor Blog

has written Acthar first line or second line, but it is our understanding that the vast majority of prescriptions to treat MS relapses are written for patients who have previously been prescribed some form of steroids.

2. What type of MS patient does Questcor target with its drug?

Questcor Response.  Questcor's marketing and sales programs attempt to educate physicians who treat MS patients about Acthar.  The focus of this education effort is on how Acthar is indicated to treat acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis in adults and how Acthar may be helpful for patients who have not had a suitable response from steroids and how the mechanism of action is unique and different from steroids. Typically, most neurologists will initially prescribe high-dose steroids for patients who are having an MS flare. Recognizing this widespread medical opinion, we also recommend that steroids be used as first line treatment. Many of those patients have an inadequate or sub-therapeutic response to the steroid treatment, have had an inadequate response to a previous treatment of steroids, have poor venous access which makes the administration of high dose steroids extremely difficult or may have other medical issues that cause the treating physician to believe that Acthar should be prescribed. Questcor attempts to educate physicians about all of these categories of patients. Clearly, it is ultimately, only the physician, in consultation with the patient, who decides whether and how Acthar is to be prescribed.
