Citius Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced completion of the acquisition of Leonard-Meron Biosciences, Inc. Pursuant to the acquisition, Citius acquired all of the outstanding shares of LMB common stock in exchange for shares of Citius common stock.

LMB is a private, late-stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of critical care products with a concentration on anti-infective drugs. LMB’s leading drug candidate, Mino-Lok™, is an antibiotic lock solution used to treat patients with catheter-related bloodstream infections (“CRBSIs”).

Mino-Lok™ is a patent-protected, novel solution containing minocycline, edetate (disodium EDTA), and ethyl alcohol, which act to break down bacterial biofilm, eradicate the bacteria, provide anti-clotting properties to maintain patency, and salvage the indwelling central venous catheter (“CVC”). Mino-Lok™ is entering phase 3 trials after demonstrating safety in its phase 2b trial conducted at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) granted a Qualified Infectious Disease Product (“QIDP”) designation for Mino-Lok™.  Receiving QIDP designation means that Mino-Lok™ is now eligible for Fast Track designation, Priority Review, and a five-year extension of market exclusivity.

Leonard Mazur, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Citius SAID:

“Management is excited with the acquisition which has provided us immediate access to Mino-Lok™, a phase 3 ready program in a billion-dollar industry. We are especially pleased with the expansion of our management team to include industry veteran, Mr. Myron Holubiak, who has assumed the position of our Chief Executive Officer and is now directing all of our business and development programs including our prescription haemorrhoid treatment.

“Mr. Holubiak has an extensive background in pharmaceutical general management, having been president of Roche Labs Inc., and also in a number of related disciplines including health economics, an increasingly important perspective in healthcare today. We are now prepared to seek additional opportunities to expand our product pipeline in critical care and associated treatment areas while conforming to our growth philosophy of developing and introducing drug products that address unmet medical needs and provide cost-effective solutions in today’s healthcare world.  We are at the forefront of an exciting time for Citius”.

Prior to the acquisition, Mr. Leonard Mazur was the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Citius and a principal stockholder of LMB; and, Mr. Myron Holubiak was the President and Chief Executive Officer of LMB, a significant stockholder of LMB, and a director of Citius.  Pursuant to the acquisition, Mr. Holubiak assumed the role of President and Chief Executive Officer of Citius and will continue as a director of Citius, and Mr. Mazur will remain as the Chairman of the Board of Citius.  All key employees of LMB joined the combined company in their respective roles pursuant to the acquisition.
