SILVER SPRING, Md., April 22, 2013

SILVER SPRING, Md., April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Pharmagen, Inc. (OTCBB:
PHRX) (the "Company" or "Pharmagen") is excited to announce that it will
present its strategic vision for solving the Nation's parenteral drug shortage
crisis at the 2013 Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) International
Convention held in Chicago, Illinois on April 23, 2013. The presentation will
be given at the North Carolina Pavilion, Booth #2617, at 4:00 pm local time.

Pharmagen, in conjunction with biopharmaceutical industry leaders BioPlan
Associates and Kymanox, will release the results of a comprehensive market
analysis of the Nation's parenteral drug shortage crisis and outline a
revolutionary supply chain and production methodology to address the problem.
BioPlan Associates has identified that shortages cost US health providers well
over $216 million annually in extra labor to simply manage; these shortages
also pose serious risks to successful and expedient patient outcomes. The
concern for patient safety is at the forefront of health policy after the 2012
Meningitis Outbreak and the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has been looking
for solutions to combat the shortage epidemic. Supply issues are expected to
continue and Pharmagen estimates that the total market opportunity approaches
$1 billion as US baby boomers are aging. Kymanox, a specialty process
engineering and regulatory compliance company, has bundled a suite of new
production methodologies that will allow Pharmagen to leverage its proprietary
knowledge of drug shortages and translate it into cGMP, FDA-approved products
that will fill critical supply gaps. This novel approach – coupled with a
newly coined concept known as cGMP +® – will allow Pharmagen to produce the
highest quality sterile injectables on the market today.

"We've spent the last 6 months studying this issue with some of the brightest
minds in the pharmaceutical business. The buy-in from our partners and the
enthusiastic encouragement from our customers is validation that there's an
enormous opportunity here. Our plan is predicated on a bottom-up approach that
allows us to leverage our intricate knowledge of the shortage market with an
FDA-approved facility that can turn out finished drugs in a matter of days,
not months. Our ability to connect a dynamic market with what's been
traditionally a slow manufacturing ecosystem is what makes us special. Given
this positioning, there isn't another company out there that can do what we
do," said Mackie A. Barch, CEO of Pharmagen.
