49.0 million). Product sales grew despite the decline in US prescriptions primarily due to price increases.

Litigation proceedings concerning Shire's ADDERALL XR patents are ongoing. Further information on this litigation can be found in our filings with the US Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year to December 31, 2007.

VYVANSE - ADHD

VYVANSE was launched in the US market in July 2007. Product sales for the three months to September 30, 2008 were $96.0 million (2007: $10.6 million) representing a 47% increase compared to sales of $65.2 million in Q2 2008.

Product sales growth was driven by a 19% increase in prescription demand compared to Q2 2008, a price increase and the stocking impact of the new dosage strengths. For the three months to September 30, 2008 VYVANSE's average quarterly market share was 9.0% (2007: 2.4%) of the US ADHD market.

The voluntary recall was not due to safety issues. Shire and
