Questcor Announces Initial Commercialization Plans for Acthar Rheumatology Indications
Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOR) today announced key elements of the Company's initial commercialization plans for H.P. Acthar® Gel (repository corticotropin injection) in the treatment of rheumatology-related indications already included on the FDA-approved package insert for Acthar.
Acthar is indicated for multiple FDA-approved rheumatology-related conditions, including its use as adjunctive therapy in psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. Acthar is also approved by the FDA as acute or maintenance therapy in selected cases of systemic lupus erythematosus and systemic dermatomyositis (polymyositis). The Company believes Acthar has the potential to help patients suffering from these serious, difficult-to-treat disorders who do not respond adequately to, or experience problematic side effects from, current treatments.
