Dey L.P. to Market EMSAM(R) Skin Patch for Treatment of Major Depressive Disorder
Date:5/29/2009

PITTSBURGH, May 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dey L.P., a subsidiary of Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL), today announced that it has begun to market and distribute EMSAM(R) in the U.S. EMSAM, a selegiline transdermal system, is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), which was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006 for the treatment of major depressive disorder.

EMSAM previously was marketed and distributed by Bristol-Myers Squibb through a commercialization agreement. The transfer of distribution, marketing and sales to Dey concludes the three-year agreement with Bristol-Myers. Manufactured by Mylan subsidiary Mylan Technologies Inc. (MTI), EMSAM is a registered trademark of Somerset Pharmaceuticals Inc. In July 2008, Mylan acquired Watson Pharmaceutical Inc.'s 50 percent interest in Somerset, making the proprietary research and development company a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mylan.

Dey President Carolyn Myers, Ph.D., said, "I am very pleased that we have the opportunity to bring the marketing and distribution of EMSAM back into the Mylan family of companies. EMSAM was developed by Somerset in collaboration with Mylan and is manufactured by MTI. Now, we can market and distribute this important product through our specialty division, Dey, and the entire supply and distribution process will benefit from additional efficiencies and cost synergies going forward."
