Schering-Plough Announces Two European Filings
Date:8/26/2009

KENILWORTH, N.J., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Schering-Plough Corporation, (NYSE: SGP), today announced that the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) has validated (accepted for review) the company's Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for a fixed-dose combination of mometasone furoate and formoterol fumarate for the maintenance treatment of asthma in patients 12 years of age and older. The company also announced today that the EMEA has validated the MAA for nomegestrol acetate (2.5 mg) / 17 beta-estradiol (1.5mg), a combined oral contraceptive (COC) containing a unique combination of a natural estrogen identical to the estrogen produced by a woman's own body and a selective progestin.

Mometasone furoate/formoterol fumarate combines mometasone furoate, the active ingredient of the inhaled corticosteroid, ASMANEX(R), with formoterol fumarate, the active ingredient of the long-acting beta2-agonist, FORADIL(R), administered via a single metered-dose inhaler.

Marketing approval from the EMEA is being sought for nomegestrol acetate/17 beta-estradiol as an oral treatment for women to prevent pregnancy.

Both applications will follow the Centralized Procedure.

"These two regulatory milestones are important steps toward advancing our late-stage pipeline and meeting patient needs. If approved by the EMEA, the mometasone furoate/formoterol fumarate combination would represent an important additional treatment option for physicians and their patients and further strengthen Schering-Plough's portfolio of respiratory products," said Thomas P. Koestler, Ph.D., executive vice president and president, Schering-Plough Research Institute. "Schering-Plough is also committed to providing women a variety of birth control options to meet
