Intercell Announces European Approval of New Vaccine, IXIARO(R), to Prevent Japanese Encephalitis
Date:4/2/2009

-- European Commission grants marketing authorization for Intercell's IXIARO, the first licensed vaccine against Japanese Encephalitis for travelers and military personnel in Europe

-- This final decision follows the positive opinion from European Committee for Human Medicinal Products (CHMP) in December 2008

VIENNA, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Intercell AG (VSE: ICLL) today announced that its new vaccine to prevent Japanese Encephalitis, IXIARO(R), has been approved by the European Commission.

"The European approval of IXIARO marks a crucial milestone in Intercell's evolution as one of the leading independent vaccine development companies with a vaccine marketed," said Intercell's Chief Executive Officer Gerd Zettlmeissl. "For the first time, both civilians and members of the military across Europe will have access to a safe and effective vaccine against this devastating and endemic disease found throughout Asia, which kills as many as one in three of the people it strikes."

This decision follows the positive opinion from European Committee for Human Medicinal Products (CHMP) in December 2008. Novartis AG holds marketing and distribution rights for IXIARO, in the United States, Europe, Japan, Korea and certain other markets in Asia and Latin America.

Intercell's product is a purified, inactivated vaccine for active immunization against infections with Japanese Encephalitis virus. The
