U.S. net product sales in fiscal 2008 declined to $94.4 million, compared with $111.1 million in fiscal 2007, due to the continued reduction in the number of VNS Therapy(TM) Systems attributable to treatment-resistant depression ("TRD"), following both the preliminary and final non-coverage determinations by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in February 2007 and May 2007, respectively; however, net sales attributable to the epilepsy indication increased by approximately 10% over the prior year.
