Date:10/22/2008

penses in the third quarter of 2008 increased 6 percent versus the

same quarter last year. As in the past, adjusted SG&A expenses are

expected to increase in the fourth quarter versus the third quarter. The

Company still expects 2008 adjusted SG&A expense dollars excluding Wyeth

profit share expenses to be slightly higher versus 2007.

The Company still expects the full year 2008 adjusted tax rate to be similar to 2007 as the federal R&D credit has been retroactively extended in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Average diluted shares for adjusted EPS in the third quarter of 2008 were 1,063 million versus 1,089 million in the third quarter of 2007. The Company currently has $4.9 billion remaining under its authorized stock repurchase program.

Capital expenditures for the third quarter of 2008 were approximately $159 million versus $306 million in the third quarter of 2007. The Company now expects full year 2008 capital expenditures to be approximately $750 million. Worldwide cash and marketable securities were $9.8 billion and debt was $11.2 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2008.
