Operating Highlights

WATERTOWN, Mass., August 8, 2007 --- Acusphere, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACUS) today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2007 and commented on its operational priorities and progress, including its planned NDA submission in Q4 2007 for its lead product candidate, Imagify

(TM) (perflubutane polymer microspheres) Injectable Suspension, a cardiovascular drug in late-stage development for use in screening for coronary artery disease.

Operating Priorities

Acusphere’s main priorities remain the same:

·                  Preparing for the regulatory submissions for Imagify

·                  Preparing for the commercialization of Imagify

·                  Advancing other product development candidates

The Company continues to focus on the steps necessary to submit an NDA for Imagify and support the MAA filing in Europe by Nycomed, its European partner. In addition to preparing the clinical sections of the NDA in electronic filing format, Acusphere is working to qualify its commercial manufacturing facility for Imagify, including aseptic validation, process performance qualification and continued product stability testing. The Company plans to complete these qualification steps in time to support a Q4 2007 NDA submission. In addition, the Company plans to announce a product development program later in the third quarter this year, addressing other opportunities for the application of its proprietary microsphere technology.

Although RAMP-2 did not achieve the specificity endpoint, the Company had previously reported superior specificity for Imagify in its first Phase 3 trial, RAMP-1. High accuracy and sensitivity were the top priorities in RAMP-2. The Company believes that it now has two Phase 3
