HGS unveils positive QOL results from Phase 2B trial of Albuferon for hepatits C
Date:11/5/2007

ROCKVILLE, Maryland November 5, 2007 Human Genome Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: HGSI) today announced the final quality-of-life results from a Phase 2b clinical trial of the investigational drug, Albuferon (albinterferon alfa-2b), in combination with ribavirin in treatment-naive patients with genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C. The study demonstrated that patients in the Albuferon treatment groups reported fewer missed days of work and less impairment of health-related quality of life on treatment compared to the Pegasys (peginterferon alfa-2a) group.

The final Phase 2b quality-of-life results are being presented this week at the 58 th AASLD Annual Meeting in Boston. In two additional press releases issued by HGS today, the Company announced the full presentations at AASLD of efficacy and safety data from the Phase 2b trial of Albuferon in treatment-naive patients, and results from the Phase 2 trial of Albuferon in combination with ribavirin in patients who did not respond to prior therapy.

Patients undergoing treatment for chronic hepatitis C often find it challenging to go to work or participate in other normal daily activities, especially in the days following dose administration, said Stephen Pianko, M.D., F.R.A.C.P., Ph.D., Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. The results of the Phase 2b trial suggest that Albuferon may have the potential to offer a therapeutic alternative with fewer lost days of work and less impairment of health-related quality of life on treatment, compared with peginterferon alfa-2a, with at least comparable efficacy and safety. We look forward to further evaluation of Albuferons impact on patient quality of life in the ongoing Phase 3 trials.

In the open-label, multi-center, active-controlled Phase 2b trial, 458 treatment-naive patients with genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C were randomized to four treatment groups: Albuferon 900 mcg every two weeks, Albuferon 1200 mcg every two weeks, Albuferon 1200 mcg every fou
