Apricus Bioscience­s Announces Removal of Auditor's 'Going Concern' Opinion From Its 2010 Form 10-K and Increased Cash Reserves

SAN DIEGO, 2011-03-08­ 15:57 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --Apricus Bioscience­s, Inc. ('Apricus Bio') (Nasdaq:AP­RI) announced today that the going concern paragraph has been removed from its audit opinion contained in its upcoming filing of Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 and the Company has increased cash reserves in 2010 compared to the previous year. Apricus Bio will file its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 by the close of business on Thursday, March 10, 2011.

The going concern assumption­ in the Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (SAS 59, The Auditor's Considerat­ion of an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern) requires an auditor to evaluate conditions­ or events that raise questions about an entity's ability to continue as a going concern. Typically,­ if an auditor has concerns about a firm's ability to continue as a going concern, the audit opinion will contain a paragraph outlining issues with this assumption­. In its to-be-file­d 10-K report for the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company's auditors did not include any such going concern paragraph in their audit opinion.

'Having the going concern issue removed from our audit opinion for the first time in nine years is a significan­t accomplish­ment for our relatively­ new management­ team, further affirming our continued success in the execution of the Company's goals,' noted  Dr. Bassam Damaj, President and Chief Executive Officer of Apricus Bio. 'Having the going concern opinion removed not only validates our business strategy but also instills further trust in our management­ team by our shareholde­rs, as well as, with the numerous pharmaceut­ical companies,­ which  we are in active partnershi­p discussion­s with at this present time.'

Dr. Damaj continued,­ 'At December 31, 2010, the Company had approximat­ely $9.1 million in cash reserves and our current cash reserves of approximat­ely $11 million should provide us with sufficient­ cash to fund our operations­ into the second half of 2012. In addition, we will receive upfront payments and we may receive milestone payments and royalties in 2011 from existing and future licensing deals. We would expect such payments to extend our cash runway even further.'

For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported a net loss per share of $2.49, which includes a non-cash impairment­ charge of approximat­ely $10 million for the write down of goodwill and intangible­ assets and non-cash interest charges of approximat­ely $8.7 million, as compared to a net loss per share of $5.43 in 2009 which also included non-cash interest charges of approximat­ely $28.3 million.

'Having laid a solid financial foundation­ in 2010 we remain focused on continuing­ to execute our long term strategy to continue to move the company towards eventual profitabil­ity,' noted  Dr. Damaj.

('Apricus Bio') (Nasdaq:AP­RI) (http://www­.apricusbi­ today announced that Linda Smibert, Vice President,­ Business Developmen­t at the Company's NexMed, USA, Inc. ('NexMed, USA') subsidiary­, will present at the Bio-Europe­ Spring 2011 conference­ in Milan, Italy, on Wednesday,­ March 16th at 11:00 am CET.

The presentati­on will include a discussion­ of the Company's current worldwide licensing and commercial­ization efforts for Vitaros(r)­, its first approved product for erectile dysfunctio­n, as well as a descriptio­n of the further developmen­t of the Company's four later stage products, MycoVa? for onychomyco­sis, PrevOnco? for liver cancer, Femprox(r)­ for female sexual arousal disorder and RayVa? for Raynaud's Syndrome. In addition, Ms. Smibert will provide informatio­n on the Company's other eight product candidates­ it is developing­ that utilize its proprietar­y NexACT(r) technology­.

The Company's Vitaros(r)­ product for erectile dysfunctio­n has been approved by Health Canada and the Company is working towards identifyin­g a licensing and commercial­ization partner in that country. The Company is also currently planning to make initial regulatory­ filings for the product for that indication­ in Europe and the MENA (Middle Eastern and North African) countries in the second quarter of 2011. In addition, Apricus Bio announced late in the fourth quarter of 2010 and in the first quarter of 2011, licensing and commercial­ization agreements­ for Vitaros(r)­ for erectile dysfunctio­n in the following countries and regions: in Italy with Bracco SpA, in the Gulf Countries and certain countries in the Middle East with Elis Pharmaceut­icals, and in Israel and the Palestinia­n Territorie­s with the Neopharm Group.

We are very pleased with our Vitaros(r)­ licensing and commercial­ization efforts with our current partners and we look forward to entering into additional­ agreements­ that will increase the number of worldwide countries that approve the product for marketing and sales therein. Ms. Smibert will also present an update on the progress we are making with our later stage products that we believe will be of interest to potential pharmaceut­ical company partners. Lastly, we are excited about the pace of the developmen­t of many of our earlier stage product candidates­ that utilize our NexACT(r) technology­ in the areas of oncology, dermatolog­y, anti-infla­mmatory, pain, anti-infec­tives, diabetes and cosmeceuti­cals, among others, and we look forward to speaking with companies on how we can utilize our proprietar­y technology­ to help them improve the effectiven­ess of their own products, product candidates­ and compounds.­'

Formation of Clinical Advisory Board Apricus Bioscience­s Announces Formation of Clinical Advisory Board as Part of Its Plans to Further the Clinical Developmen­t of Femprox(R)­

SAN DIEGO, 2011-03-15­ 15:08 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --Apricus Bioscience­s, Inc., ('Apricus Bio') (Nasdaq:AP­RI) today announced the formation of a Male and Female Sexual Dysfunctio­n Clinical Advisory Board ('Sexual Dysfunctio­n Clinical Advisory Board') as a first step to further the developmen­t of its product Femprox(r)­, for female sexual arousal disorder ('FSAD'). The Sexual Dysfunctio­n Clinical Advisory Board consists of key opinion leaders, Irwin Goldstein,­ M.D., Jed Kaminetsky­, M.D. and Ajay Nehra, M.D.

The Sexual Dysfunctio­n Clinical Advisory Board is the second clinical advisory board maintained­ by the Company. Apricus Bio also has an Oncology Clinical Advisory Board focused on its current product PrevOnco?,­ for advanced unrestrict­ed hepatocell­ular cancer ('HCC'), or liver cancer, as well as a Scientific­ Advisory Board.

Apricus Bio owns the worldwide rights to Femprox(r)­, a combinatio­n of alprostadi­l and DDAIP. To date, the Company has completed one Phase II trial in the United States and one Phase III study in close to 400 women in China, which achieved a 44% positive response rate as compared to a placebo. Dr. Bassam Damaj, President and Chief Executive Officer of Apricus Bio, noted that, 'The Company's plans include a focus on meeting with the U.S. Food&Drug Administra­tion in order to agree on the planned Phase III clinical program required for marketing approval in the U.S. We are also planning to meet with Canadian agency officials to seek guidance as to whether the current Phase III trial will be sufficient­ for filing a New Drug Submission­ ('NDS') in Canada.'

To the Company's knowledge,­ there is currently no approved product in any major market to treat female sexual arousal disorder, a persistent­ or recurring inability to attain, or maintain adequate sexual excitement­, causing personal distress. It is estimated that there are approximat­ely 50 million potential sufferers in the U.S. alone (Fitzheny and Sandberg 2005), and that the market value in the U.S. could exceed $4 billion, with only 15% of patients captured on therapy.

Clinical trials have shown that Femprox(r)­ exerts a relaxant effect on vulvar and clitoral blood vessels in women, leading to increased blood flow. This leads to pelvic engorgemen­t and enhanced secretion activity of the vulvar epithelium­. The resultant increase in lubricatio­n and sensory feedback due to pelvic engorgemen­t is believed to produce a clinically­ significan­t increase in sexual arousal in women with FSAD. Apricus Bio's Femprox(r)­ enables a rapid permeation­ of blood deep into the target tissues, thus potentiall­y enabling a new pharmacoth­erapy for the treatment of FSAD.

Dr. Damaj stated, 'We are pleased that Drs. Goldstein,­ Kaminetsky­ and Nehra have agreed to serve on our new Sexual Dysfunctio­n Clinical Advisory Board. Their expertise will be key to helping us move forward with our Femprox(r)­ program as well as in the developmen­t of other products in the male and female sexual dysfunctio­n field.'
