Pernix Therapeutics Announces Omeclamox-Pak ® Now Available In Pharmacies Nationwide

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pernix Therapeutics (NYSE: MKT: PTX), a specialty pharmaceutical company, today announced that   Omeclamox-Pak ® is now available to patients for the treatment of Helicobacter pylori ( H. pylori) infection and duodenal ulcer disease (active or one-year history) to eradicate H. pylori in adult patients. Omeclamox-Pak is a ten-day, triple combination oral therapy comprised of omeprazole delayed-release capsules (20 mg), clarithromycin tablets (500 mg) and amoxicillin capsules (500 mg).

Cooper Collins, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pernix, said, "We are pleased to announce that Omeclamox-Pak is now available by prescription in pharmacies across the country, and physicians and patients will have another therapy option for the treatment of H. pylori and duodenal ulcer disease."

Omeclamox-Pak is the first triple combination medication indicated to eradicate symptoms of H. pylori in just ten days. Current treatment options include dual therapy, consisting of one proton pump inhibitor and only one antibiotic medication, as well as triple combination therapy, prescribed twice daily for 14 days.

Dr. Brian Fennerty, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology at Oregon Health & Science University, said, "Published studies show that a single ten-day regimen of twice-daily therapy with omeprazole, amoxicillin and clarithromycin eradicates 80 percent to 90 percent of H. pylori infections."   

About Omeclamox-Pak®Omeprazole is an antisecretory drug, which works by decreasing the amount of acid the stomach produces. Clarithromycin and amoxicillin are antibacterial drugs, which inhibit the growth of bacteria allowing the stomach lining to heal. Omeclamox-Pak is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to omeprazole, any macrolide antibiotic or penicillin. The safety and effectiveness of Omeclamox-Pak in the pediatric population has not yet been established. Omeclamox-Pak was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2011.
