Questcor and Child Neurology Foundation Support the 3rd Annual Infantile Spasms (IS) Awareness Week
Date:10/27/2011

HAYWARD, Calif., Oct. 27, 2011  Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOR) today announced that it is partnering with the Child Neurology Foundation (CNF) in support of the 3rd annual Infantile Spasms (IS) Awareness Week, which will take place October 24-30, 2011, in conjunction with the Child Neurology Society (CNS) Annual Meeting in Savannah, Georgia.

As part of this education effort, CNF has developed a website, www.infantilespasmsinfo.org, that provides information on IS from leading child neurologists and shares stories from families coping with this devastating condition. CNF has also developed an educational IS brochure and DVD that it makes available to physicians and parents alike.

"Questcor is very excited to continue its partnership with the Child Neurology Foundation," said Steve Cartt, Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer for Questcor. "The goal of IS Awareness Week is to provide pediatricians, child neurologists, parents, and caregivers with objective educational tools which will help increase awareness and understanding of infantile spasms."

As part of IS Awareness Week, the CNF announced that Dr. Harry Chugani, division chief of pediatric neurology at Children's Hospital of Michigan, has been selected as this year's IS Hero.

John Stone, executive director of the CNF, commented, "The IS Hero Award recognizes a deserving child neurologist and medical institution, nominated by a parent, for making a positive difference in the life of a child with IS.  This is another way we can draw attention to IS and recognize the important contributions made by child neurologists in the care of these infants."

Dr. Chugani was nominated by Emily and Ryan Kather of Royal Oaks, Michigan.  Dr. Chugani treated their son, Ben, who was diagnosed with infantile spasms in 2009
