Questcor Pharmaceuticals Responds to Questions From Investor Blog

Questcor Response: Questcor does not promote Acthar for the treatment of nephrotic syndrome.  The Company does promote Acthar for the treatment of proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome, using the specific language from its label which is:  "to induce a diuresis or a remission of proteinuria in the nephrotic syndrome without uremia of the idiopathic type or that due to lupus erythematosus."
