Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the
treatment of patients with serious, difficult-to-treat autoimmune and
inflammatory disorders. Questcor's primary product is H.P. Acthar^® Gel
(repository corticotropin injection), an injectable drug that is approved by
the FDA for the treatment of 19 indications. Of these 19 indications,
Questcor currently generates substantially all of its net sales from three
indications: the treatment of proteinuria in idiopathic types of nephrotic
syndrome, the treatment of acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis in
adults, and the treatment of 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 has also launched a pilot effort in rheumatology, as Acthar is
approved for several rheumatology-related conditions including
Dermatomyositis, Polymyositis, Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. 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. For more information about Questcor, please visit
