Date:2/27/2008

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- ZARS Pharma, Inc. announced today that Rapydan(R) (70 mg lidocaine/70 mg tetracaine medicated plaster) has now received marketing authorization in Sweden, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Austria, the Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Norway and Portugal following the completion of the European Mutual Recognition Procedure. ZARS Pharma has licensed the European sales and marketing rights of Rapydan to EUSA Pharma, Inc. Rapydan received marketing authorization in Sweden in January 2007 and was launched in May 2007. EUSA Pharma began launching Rapydan in other European Union countries in early 2008.

Rapydan is a topical local anesthetic patch approved for use on normal and intact skin to provide surface anesthesia of the skin in connection with needle punctures, in children from 3 years and above, and needle punctures and superficial surgical procedures in adults. Rapydan resembles a small adhesive bandage in appearance and is similar in its ease of application. The patch is applied to the skin for 30 minutes before painful medical procedures. Rapydan is the first product approved in Europe using the patented Controlled Heat-Assisted Drug Delivery or CHADD(R) technology developed by ZARS Pharma.

Rapydan is marketed as Synera(R) (lidocaine 70 mg and tetracaine 70 mg) in the United States and was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2005.

Robert Lippert, President and Chief Executive of ZARS Pharma stated, "We are pleased to announce the approval of Rapydan in a number of European Union countries with a uniquely positioned commercial partner. Rapydan is the first anesthetic patch innovation to be approved in over a decade that works faster than the current standard of care and will soon become a best-in-class therapy for patients undergoing painful needle procedures."
