Amira Pharmaceuticals and GlaxoSmithKline Enter Global Agreement for FLAP Inhibitor Program
Date:2/4/2008

ates the abilities and expertise in Amira to expedite the delivery of novel medicines. We are particularly pleased to have partnered with GSK, one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in the world, and a company that has a strong heritage in the treatment of respiratory diseases."

About respiratory diseases

The prevalence of asthma is increasing globally and despite the success of inhaled beta-agonist and corticosteroid therapy there is still a significant need for alternative therapies. Although other therapies are available that target the leukotriene pathway, a FLAP inhibitor has the potential to inhibit a broad spectrum of leukotrienes. FLAP inhibitors are also being investigated for use in other respiratory indications, including rhinitis, as well as having potential for the treatment of other inflammatory and cardiovascular diseases.

The global non-steroidal market for the treatment of asthma and rhinitis is currently worth in excess of US $4 billion; prescriptions for the treatment of rhinitis contribute 15% to total worldwide sales of non-steroidals. A FLAP inhibitor with improved efficacy and equal or improved safety and tolerability to existing leukotriene receptor antagonists, in both asthma and rhinitis, would likely capture a significant portion of this market.

About the agreement

Commenting on the agreement, Dave Allen, SVP Respiratory Centre of Excellence in Drug Discovery, GlaxoSmithKline said: "The role of anti-leukotriene agents has been well validated in the treatment of respiratory diseases. We are very excited at entering into this global agreement with Amira to deliver novel therapies to patients based on this mechanism."

In addition Moncef Slaoui, Chairman R&D, GSK said: "As leaders in the development, manufacture and marketing of medicines for respiratory diseases GSK is pleased to be introducing this treatment to our product pipeline. We believe AM103, a novel FLAP inhibitor, has the potential to
