Acthar® Gel (repository corticotropin injection), an injectable drug that is approved by the FDA for the treatment of 19 indications.  Questcor currently generates substantially all of its net sales from: the treatment of patients with acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis in adults, the treatment of patients with nephrotic syndrome, and the treatment of patients with infantile spasms in children under two years of age. With respect to nephrotic syndrome, the FDA has approved Acthar to "induce a diuresis or a remission of proteinuria in the nephrotic syndrome without uremia of the idiopathic type or that due to lupus erythematosus."  Questcor is also currently planning to explore the potential initiation of a commercial effort in rheumatology, as Acthar is approved for several rheumatology-related conditions including Lupus, and Dermatomyositis (Polymyositis).  Questcor is also exploring the possibility of developing markets for other on-label indications and the possibility of pursuing FDA approval of additional indications not currently on the Acthar label where there is high unmet medical need.  In October 2011, Forbes magazine ranked Questcor number one in its annual rankings of America's Best Small Companies.  For more information about Questcor, please visit                      SOURCE Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc.For further information: Don Bailey, Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc., +1-714-786-4210,; or Investors, Gregory Gin, +1-646-445-4801, or Doug Sherk, +1-415-568-4887, or Media, Janine McCargo, +1-646-688-0425, of EVC Group
