Date:11/8/2013

KANSAS CITY, Kan., Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stason Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced today that it is expanding into Kansas City by moving its brand division from Irvine, Calif. to Kansas City, Kan.  A new entity has been developed, KC Specialty Therapeutics LLC, in which the new assets will be placed to focus on research and development of new chemical entities for humans.

"Stason Pharmaceuticals has been very impressed with the biosciences opportunities in the Kansas City region since moving Stason Animal Health's national headquarters here earlier this year," said Diana Wood, vice president of corporate development for Stason Pharmaceuticals and CEO for KC Specialty Therapeutics LLC. "The KC Animal Health Corridor and broader life sciences community have been incredibly supportive."

Today's announcement comes just 90 days after Stason Pharmaceutical's animal division, Stason Animal Health, announced it was relocating its corporate headquarters to the KC Animal Health Corridor.

KC Specialty Therapeutics LLC will locate alongside Stason Animal Health at the Bioscience & Technology Business Center located on the University of Kansas Medical Center campus.  Over the next year, the company will create job opportunities in Kansas City and continue to grow its presence over time.

"We are thrilled that Stason Pharmaceuticals values our region's strong biosciences business environment," said Bob Marcusse, president and CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council. "We look forward to seeing both Stason Pharmaceuticals and KC Specialty Therapeutics grow in our region."
