Spherics, Inc. Announces Reduced Cognitive Impairment of Novel Extended Release Topiramate (SRx-502) as Compared to Topamax

WELLESLEY HILLS, MA | Posted on September 15th, 2008

Joseph F. Finn, Jr., C.P.A. ("Finn"), Assignee of the assets of Spherics, Inc. ("Spherics") for the benefit of creditors, announced today that all oral drug delivery intellectual property will be sold at a sealed bid auction on October 10, 2008.

Topamax(R) produces adverse effects on cognitive functions at rates of over 40% in subjects with epilepsy. These effects manifest as confusion, psychomotor slowing, difficulty with concentration/attention, difficulty with memory, speech or language and word-finding difficulties. Using computerized Neuropsychological Test Battery (CNTB) modules, measuring attention/concentration, verbal and visual memory, and working memory, as well as two paper and pencil processing speed tests: Symbol Digit Modalities Test (SDMT) and verbal associative fluency test (FAS), the novel extended release Topiramate formulation (SRx-502) was shown to be associated with both significantly reduced cognitive impairment and fewer reduced adverse events.

Persons interested in bidding must sign a Confidentiality Agreement ("CA") obtained from Finn's office -- or 781-237-8840. They will then receive a bid package and access to the Spherics electronic data room.
