Pharmaxis Aridol Approved for Sale in Switzerland
Date:10/19/2008

SYDNEY, Australia, Oct. 19 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharmaceutical company Pharmaxis (ASX: PXS; Nasdaq: PXSL) today announced that it had received approval to market Aridol from the Swiss therapeutic regulatory agency Swissmedic.

Aridol is indicated for measuring airway hyperresponsiveness and within Europe is now approved in 13 countries - Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

"Swiss physicians have been some of the earliest adopters of Aridol, pioneering early clinical trials, so I am delighted to have the product approved there" said Pharmaxis CEO Dr Alan Robertson. "This level of innovation has attracted the attention of two multinational Pharma companies who are currently funding studies in Switzerland that utilize Aridol to diagnose asthma and COPD patients who will respond to inhaled corticosteroids".

Aridol will be distributed in Switzerland by Trimedal, a specialist respiratory and allergy pharmaceutical company based in Zurich, Switzerland. It has an extensive network of contacts with pulmonary specialists, allergists and respiratory laboratories that will be critical for the market success of Aridol. Pricing for Aridol in Switzerland is included under an existing reimbursement code so marketing may commence immediately.

A simple-to-use airways inflammation test, Aridol is a dry powder administered to patients' lungs via a small hand-held inhaler. Doctors can use the results of this test to identify airway hyperresponsiveness - a hallmark of asthma. Medications can be adjusted according to the severity of the disease.
