Date:10/29/2007

LOURES, Portugal, October 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Hovione's Technology Transfer Center (TTC) in New Jersey has just passed successfully a pre-approval inspection by FDA.

The inspection was carried out by Ms. Joy R. Kozlowski-Klena Compliance Officer at the US FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and lasted 3 days, starting on October 9th and concluded on the 12th. No form 483 was issued. At the closing meeting, the inspector had several positive comments on our systems and indicated she would be recommending the approval of the site. This inspection covered the TTC's first commercial product - a high potency small molecule API for an injectable formulation. The NDA was filed last May and approval is expected in Q1 2008, with a launch foreseen later that year. Mr. Dave Hoffman, President of the US Operations said "This is an exciting milestone for our New Jersey Technology Transfer Center. This successful FDA compliance inspection gives a green light to an NDA compound - we look forward to further expanding small scale commercial manufacturing opportunities at our NJ site".
