FDA Approves ACAM2000(TM) Vaccine for Protection Against Smallpox
Date:9/3/2007

Highly Successful Collaboration With CDC to Ensure US's Preparedness

Against the Threat of a Smallpox-Related Public Health Emergency

CAMBRIDGE, England and CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts, September 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Acambis plc (Acambis) (LSE: ACM), a leading vaccine company, announced today that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its ACAM2000 (Smallpox (Vaccinia) Vaccine, Live) vaccine for protection against smallpox. The vaccine is intended for active immunization against smallpox disease for persons determined to be at high risk for smallpox infection. ACAM2000 is the first biodefense vaccine to be approved as part of the US response to the 2001 bioterrorism attacks.

Acambis developed ACAM2000 under contracts with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To date, Acambis has supplied 192.5 million doses of ACAM2000 to the CDC for the US Strategic National Stockpile (SNS), which was established to provide medicines to the American public in the event of a public health emergency, such as a terrorist attack.

Having produced a stockpile of ACAM2000 doses for the SNS, Acambis and the CDC are now in advanced discussions on a "warm-base manufacturing" contract for Acambis to provide ACAM2000 production and license maintenance activities for the long term.

Ian Garland, Acambis Chief Executive Officer, said: "The licensure of ACAM2000 is a significant milestone not only for Acambis but also for the US Government in its efforts to ensure a state of preparedness against the threat of smallpox. This has been a highly successful collaboration between Acambis and the CDC, and Acambis is very proud to have played a role in providing this countermeasure against a significant bioterrorism threat. We look forward to finalizing an agreement with the CDC that will ensure that a US-based capability to manufacture ACAM2000 remains at the ready."
