Galderma announces approval for Differin gel 0.1 percent in Japan
Date:7/17/2008

Lausanne, Switzerland July 16, 2008 Galderma Pharma S.A., a global specialty pharmaceutical company focused on dermatology, announced today that Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has approved Differin® Gel 0.1% (adapalene), a novel topical treatment for acne vulgaris in Japan. The drug will be marketed in Japan by Galderma KK, the fully-owned Japanese arm of Galderma, and strategic alliance partner Shionogi.

Approval was based on non-clinical and clinical studies, which supported the efficacy and safety of the product for the registration outside Japan and on an extensive local clinical development program, including two phase 3 studies enrolling more than 600 Japanese patients.

A 12-week study of the treatment in 200 Japanese patients demonstrated that treatment with Differin® Gel 0.1% led to a significant reduction in both inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions, as compared with vehicle treatment, with some patients feeling the benefit after only one week of treatment. A 12-month long-term safety study of more than 400 patients showed that the treatment was safe and remained effective with long-term use.

"The availability of a topical retinoid in Japan will provide greater flexibility for customizing care and improving outcomes for acne patients."

According to the agreement between both firms, Galderma and Shionogi w
