Human Genome Sciences Announces First Quarter 2008 Financial Results and Key Developments
Date:5/5/2008

ilable by mid-2009 and all Phase 3 data available in fall 2009. LymphoStat-B is being developed by HGS and GSK under a co-development and commercialization agreement entered into in August 2006.

Albuferon(R): Treatment Phase of ACHIEVE 2/3 Completed; On Track with Timeline to Phase 3 Data and Filing of Marketing Applications

In April 2008, HGS completed the treatment phase of ACHIEVE 2/3, one of two Phase 3 trials of Albuferon (albinterferon alfa-2b) in combination with ribavirin in treatment-naive patients with chronic hepatitis C. The Company expects to complete the treatment phase of ACHIEVE 1 in July 2008. HGS is on track to have ACHIEVE 2/3 data available before the end of 2008, ACHIEVE 1 data by spring 2009 and the filing of global marketing authorizations by fall 2009. Albuferon is being developed by HGS and Novartis under an exclusive worldwide co-development and commercialization agreement entered into in June 2006.

Data were presented in April in Milan at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of the Liver, which showed that Albuferon's pharmacodynamic characteristics and ability to maintain effective blood levels for a longer period of time than is seen with other long-acting interferons may make it an effective component of future combination treatment with novel antivirals for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C.

Oncology Portfolio Advances: Rights Reacquired to TRAIL Receptor Antibodies; Chemotherapy Combination Trial of HGS-ETR1 to Begin in Hepatocellular Cancer

In April, HGS reacquired rights to its TRAIL receptor antibodies HGS-ETR1 (mapatumumab) and HGS-ETR2 (lexatumumab) from GSK in return for a reduction in royalties due to HGS if Syncria(R) (albiglutide) is commercialized. The fees and milestone payments due to HGS under the original Syncria agreement, some of which have already been received, could amount to as much as $183 million and remain unchanged in the amended agreement.
