Questcor Reports Third Quarter Financial Results
Date:10/29/2013

areas: increased penetration of Acthar in current markets and expansion into additional on-label markets, globalization of Synacthen and Acthar, development of new indications and markets, and the appropriate deployment of cash that we believe will be generated from these activities."

"New paid prescriptions for Acthar were strong across all of our markets, totaling approximately 2,450 to 2,500 in the third quarter, about a 30% increase from a year ago," commented Steve Cartt, Chief Operating Officer of Questcor. "We continue to experience a strong early level of prescribing of Acthar in the rheumatology-related indications dermatomyositis, polymyositis, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. There were 450 to 460 new paid Acthar prescriptions for these FDA-approved rheumatology indications during the third quarter, up about 43% from the second quarter.  Notably, in only our second full quarter of promotion to rheumatologists, rheumatology prescriptions already account for nearly a quarter of total Acthar business."

Mr. Cartt continued, "There were also 370 to 380 new paid prescriptions for NS in the quarter, up about 7% year-over-year.  NS prescriptions currently account for about one third of our Acthar business.  Particularly encouraging was the record level of Acthar prescriptions for the treatment of MS relapse, despite this being one of our more mature markets.  During the third quarter there were 1,370 to 1,400 new paid prescriptions for MS relapse patients, up about 4% year-over-year. MS relapse prescriptions currently represent between 25% and 30% of our Acthar business.  New paid prescriptions for IS were also up, reaching 225 to 230, an increase of 33% year-over-year."

"We have recently begun hiring personnel for our initial effort to educate pulmonologists about Acthar in the treatment of respiratory manifestations of symptomatic sarcoidosis, an orphan inflammatory disease with high unmet medical need for which Act
