Date:4/5/2011

PITTSBURGH, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today announced that its subsidiary Bioniche Pharma has launched Octreotide Acetate Injection USP, pre-filled syringes (PFS), the generic version of Novartis' Sandostatin®, a treatment for a rare hormonal disorder called acromegaly. Octreotide Acetate Injection is also used to suppress or inhibit severe diarrhea associated with metastatic carcinoid tumors and vasoactive intestinal peptide tumors.

Mylan Institutional President Matt Erick said: "This approval is particularly important because it is the first and only PFS for this product – brand or generic – providing hospitals and clinics access to a preferred presentation that offers ease, accuracy and convenience of dosing. The addition of Octreotide Acetate Injection as Mylan Institutional's first PFS is a critical next step in expanding our already diverse portfolio of injectable products."

Octreotide Acetate Injection had U.S. sales of approximately $579 million for the 12 months ending Dec. 31, 2010, according to IMS Health. The product, which is available for immediate shipment, was developed by Chemi and is being manufactured by Italfarmaco; both companies are part of privately held Italian Pharmaceutical Group.

Bioniche Pharma is part of Mylan Institutional, a platform that provides differentiated pharmaceutical products to institutional customers throughout North America. Mylan Institutional's product offering includes the specialty injectables of Bioniche Pharma with the unit dose capabilities of Mylan's UDL Laboratories.
