Questcor to Initiate Pilot Commercialization Effort In Pulmonology for Symptomatic Sarcoidosis
Date:7/11/2013

(NASDAQ: QCOR) today announced its intent to initiate a pilot commercialization effort for H.P. Acthar® Gel (repository corticotropin injection) for the treatment of respiratory manifestations of symptomatic sarcoidosis, a potentially serious, difficult-to-treat disorder already included on the FDA-approved package insert for Acthar.  The pilot effort will focus on pulmonologists, who are the respiratory specialists treating this rare autoimmune disorder.

Bailey, Questcor's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Already, patients suffering from nephrotic syndrome (NS), multiple sclerosis (MS) exacerbations, infantile spasms, and certain rheumatology-related conditions have benefitted from Acthar.  Our plans to increase awareness among pulmonologists treating patients suffering fr
