Perforomist Inhalation Solution data to be presented at American Thoracic Society conference
Date:5/14/2009

Napa, Calif., (May 14, 2009) Dey, L.P., a subsidiary of Mylan Inc. (NYSE: MYL), announced today that data from two presentations highlighting the use of Perforomist (formoterol fumarate) Inhalation Solution will be featured in poster format at the International Conference of the American Thoracic Society on May 19, 2009 in San Diego.

In one analysis, use of Perforomist Inhalation Solution, when added to maintenance tiotropium, resulted in improved pulmonary function, dyspnea (shortness of breath) and rescue medication use versus treatment with tiotropium alone. In a second study, patient satisfaction increased in those treated with Perforomist Inhalation Solution twice daily compared with ipratropium/albuterol metered-dose inhaler (MDI) four times daily.

Presentation Details:

In COPD, Adding Nebulized Formoterol to Tiotropium Treatment Provides Added Benefits in Pulmonary Function, Dyspnea, and Rescue Medication Use: A Pooled Analysis; poster board # J51

Date: Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Poster viewing: 10:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. PT
Location: Area J (Sails Pavilion, Upper Level), San Diego Convention Center

Nebulized Formoterol Improved Efficacy and Increased Patient Satisfaction Compared with Ipratropium/Albuterol MDI; poster board # J50

Date: Tuesday, May 19, 2009

About COPD

COPD is a preventable and treatable disease with some significant extrapulmonary effects that may contribute to the severity in individual patients. Its pulmonary component is characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. The airflow limitation is usually progressive and associated with an abnormal inflammatory response of the lung to noxious particles or gases.

COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease, cancer and stroke. 12 million Americans have been diagnosed with COPD, and at least another 12 million have symptoms but have not been diagnosed. COPD is not well understood or recognized most Americans have not heard of it, not even those who may be living with the condition. The most common cause of COPD is cigarette smoking, which is responsible for an estimated 80 to 90 percent of COPD cases. For patients who smoke, quitting smoking is the single most important step a patient can take to treat or slow down COPD. Estimates of the total incidence of COPD in America range from 24 to 30 million.

About Nebulization

Of the three types of devices used to deliver bronchodilators nebulizers, metered-dose inhalers, and dry powder inhalers nebulizers convert medication into a fine liquid mist that the patient inhales through a mouthpiece or facemask. The patient breathes naturally, inhaling the medicine until the complete dosage has been delivered. Nebulization is a very gentle, but also very thorough, method of delivering medicine directly into the lungs.

With Perforomist Inhalation Solution, nebulization may become a more widely used treatment option for many COPD patients at earlier treatment stages who could benefit from twice-daily maintenance dosing of a nebulized long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonists (LABAs) such as Perforomist Inhalation Solution. For example, this COPD treatment may be a valuable clinical option for many patients whose symptoms are not adequately controlled with their current therapy. COPD patients should consider asking their doctor whether nebulized treatment may be right for them.

About Perforomist Inhalation Solution

Perforomist Inhalation Solution is indicated for the long-term, twice-daily (morning and evening) administration in the maintenance treatment of bronchoconstriction in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) including chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
