About DARA BioSciences, Inc.

DARA is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of oncology treatment and supportive care products. DARA sharpened its focus in oncology through its January 2012 acquisition of Oncogenerix, Inc., which holds the exclusive U.S. marketing rights to Soltamox ®. Soltamox ® is a novel oral liquid formulation of tamoxifen, a product used widely in the treatment and prevention of breast cancer. Soltamox ® is the only FDA approved oral liquid version of tamoxifen and fulfills a vital clinical need for patients who cannot tolerate existing tablet formulations of this drug. DARA plans to begin marketing Soltamox ® in the U.S. in the third quarter of 2012.

DARA has also obtained exclusive U.S. commercial rights from Innocutis Holdings, LLC for Bionect ® (hyaluronic acid sodium salt, 0.2%) within the oncology and radiation oncology marketplace. Bionect is an FDA-cleared product indicated for the management of irritation of the skin as well as first and second degree burns. Bionect is currently being promoted and sold by Innocutis in the dermatology market. DARA launched this product in Q2 2012.

DARA has obtained, in addition, the U.S. rights to gemcitabine, a widely used generic chemotherapeutic cancer drug, from Uman Pharma. The Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for gemcitabine is expected to be filed with the FDA later this year.
