Strategic Agreement Launches Novel Drug Development Model
Date:9/7/2012

SOLANA BEACH, Calif., Sept. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (IMMY: OTCQB) today announced a strategic development and investment agreement with Houston-based Professional Compounding Centers of America, Inc. (PCCA). The agreement will allow the companies to develop and share drug-formulation technology, with the goal of creating a new generation of treatments for muscle and joint pain, neuropathic pain and other conditions. PCCA also made a $4 million equity investment in Imprimis in a private transaction.

The agreement will give Imprimis exclusive non-PCCA-member access to PCCA's topical technologies and formulation know-how for delivering drugs directly through the skin. The arrangement is intended to identify development opportunities for new topical medications for new therapeutic applications.

Imprimis' lead drug candidate, Impracor™, a topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory cream, is expected to enter Phase 3 clinical trials early in 2013. When approved for sale, Impracor would be applied to the site of muscle or joint pain, delivering a clinical dose of medication to the affected area without potential side effects such as stomach irritation or liver problems that have been associated with ingestible, non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs.

The company has also developed Accudel™, a patented topical-delivery platform that can serve as a delivery vehicle for other medications.

"This agreement with PCCA will allow us to develop and implement an entirely new model for creating needed drugs for the treatment of a variety of conditions. Under this model, we will look for ways to repurpose or reformulate existing FDA-approved generic drugs, which would be delivered through our proprietary technologies," said Mark L. Baum, CEO of Imprimis. "We are very excited to enter a strategic relationship with such a well-respected company as PCCA, the largest pharmaceutical compounding organization in the
