Anatabloc® Brand Ambassador Fred Couples Named Captain Of U.S. Golf Team For The 2013 Presidents Cup

GLEN ALLEN, Va., May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the manufacturer of Anatabloc® and a subsidiary of Star Scientific, Inc. (NASDAQ: CIGX), wishes to extend its congratulations to Fred Couples for being named 2013 U.S. Presidents Cup Captain. Couples, who became a spokesperson and brand ambassador for Anatabloc® in early 2012, was named the U.S. Captain by PGA Tour Commissioner, Tim Finchem, on Tuesday at the Memorial Tournament. The 2013 Presidents Cup will be held at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, and this will be the third time Couples has served as Captain of the U.S. team. Previously, Couples led the U.S. golf teams to victories in San Francisco (2009) and in Australia (2011). 




Last week, Rock Creek reported on the retail expansion of Anatabloc® with GNC corporate stores.  In that press release, the company noted that on June 1, 2012, GNC will begin displaying a poster of Fred Couples in the front window of its corporate stores in all fifty states, as well as in the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Also, Rock Creek is preparing a national television commercial featuring Fred Couples that it anticipates will begin airing this summer.

Additionally, as referenced in the company's recent 10-Q filing, Star Scientific's reply to the petition for certiorari to the Supreme Court filed by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, Inc. was due May 29, 2012. Consistent with the schedule established for briefing at the Supreme Court, the company's reply brief was timely filed Tuesday afternoon.
