-- Sales of Myozyme are expected to increase to $320-$330 million this

year, compared with $201 million last year. The launch of this product

has been the most rapid for any of Genzyme's lysosomal storage disorder

treatments. In December, Genzyme announced that its post-marketing

Late-Onset Treatment Study of Myozyme met its co-primary endpoints,

confirming the benefit of the product for patients across the spectrum

of Pompe disease. The company has begun submitting the results of this

study for presentation at medical meetings and will pursue the

inclusion of the trial results in the product's labeling.

-- Sales of Fabrazyme(R) (agalsidase beta) are expected to reach $495-$505

million this year, compared with $424 million in 2007. The European

$1.22-$1.24 billion this year, compared with $1.13 billion in 2007.

Renvela(R) (sevelamer carbonate) are expected to rise to $690-$700

approved by the FDA in October for the treatment of hemodialysis

patients, and Genzyme plans to launch the product on March 1. Genzyme
