Stocks in this article: DARA

DARA BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: DARA) announced today the appointment of Stephen O. Jaeger to the DARA board of directors. Mr. Jaeger has served on the boards of a variety of private and public companies across the biopharmaceutical, medical, financial and other industries. “Steve is a thorough professional with extensive operating experience and a deep understanding of public companies, particularly in the area of pharmaceuticals and biotechnology,” said Dr. David J. Drutz, DARA’s chief executive officer. “His strategic, managerial and financial skills combined with his knowledge regarding specialty products will be of paramount importance as we grow our business. We look forward to Steve’s involvement as we prepare for the upcoming launch of Soltamox ®. Furthermore, Steve’s contacts and experience will be invaluable as the company executes on its plan to continue building its sales and marketing pipeline.”

DARA BioSciences focuses on oncology treatment and supportive care products. In June 2012, the company launched its first product, Bionect ®, a topical treatment for skin irritation and burns associated with radiation therapy. Its portfolio also includes KRN5500, a novel therapy under development for the treatment of neuropathic pain in patients with cancer, a condition with no current adequate therapy.

About Stephen Jaeger

He has served as director on boards including Savient Pharmaceuticals, Arlington Tankers LTD, eBT International Inc., Clinical Communications Group (a medical education company) and Hougton Mifflin. Mr. Jaeger also formerly served as chief executive officer of eBT International Inc.; and chief financial officer of Clinical Communications Group, Houghton Mifflin and Applera (a life sciences and instrument company).

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. later this year. Additionally, in June 2012 DARA launched its first product, Bionect ®, a topical treatment for skin irritation and burns associated with radiation therapy.

Prior to acquiring Oncogenerix, DARA was focused on the development of a cancer-support therapeutic compound, KRN5500, for the treatment of neuropathic pain in patients with cancer. This product is an excellent fit with DARA’s strategic oncology focus, has successfully completed a Phase IIa study, and has been designated as a Fast Track Drug by the United States Food and Drug Administration. We are working with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to design an additional clinical trial under joint DARA-NCI auspices while considering further internal Phase 2 development.
