About MiddleBrook Pharmaceuticals:

MiddleBrook Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MBRK) is a pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of anti-infective drug products that fulfill substantial unmet medical needs in the treatment of infectious disease. The Company is developing anti-infective drugs based on its novel biological finding that bacteria exposed to antibiotics in front- loaded staccato bursts, or "pulses," are killed more efficiently and effectively than those under standard treatment regimens. Based on this finding, MiddleBrook has developed a proprietary, once-a-day pulsatile delivery technology called PULSYS(TM). The Company currently markets the Keflex(R) brand of cephalexin and has received regulatory approval for MOXATAG(TM) -- the first and only once-daily amoxicillin product approved for marketing in the U.S. For more on MiddleBrook, please visit
